Fall is the Right Time to Schedule Your St. Louis Heating Maintenance
Early fall is the season of extremes – of heat waves followed by chilly mornings. The air conditioner doesn’t click on as often, and soon you start thinking about switching over to the heater. After all, the first freezes will be starting soon!
Setting up a service agreement with your local heating and air conditioning in St. Louis is a great way to make sure your heater is serviced and in good working order before it’s time to turn on the heat.
Meyer Heating and Air offers our clients an annual HVAC service agreement, also known as a maintenance plan or maintenance contract, for a low annual fee, to keep your heating and air conditioning in St. Louis working to its best potential.
Consider it “spring cleaning” for your HVAC system, only in the fall.
Why is Early Fall the Ideal Time for St. Louis Heating Service?
The time for heater maintenance is now. Check out these four reasons why it’s time to start a service agreement with Meyer Heating & Air this fall.
Beat the Rush and Save Money
Waiting until it’s cold outside to get your heater maintenance taken care of is a move that can backfire. When the first cold morning hits, a lot of people suddenly discover that their HVAC system isn’t working, and as a result, you’ll have a longer wait time for repair.
By setting up an appointment before you have to turn your heater on, your HVAC service providers will have greater availability and more flexibility in scheduling.
It’s also best if your heater maintenance is done on a mild day when you’re not using the air conditioner, heater, or heat pump. This allows the technician to easily test all functions of your system.
Heater Maintenance Leads to Improved Energy Efficiency
A well-maintained heater operates more effectively while delivering a higher level of comfort.
Did you know that a heater that has not been regularly serviced can lose a percentage of its efficiency each year? An unmaintained heater costs more in terms of energy usage, as well as higher repair bills. Naturally, service calls also add to the cost, and repair bills add up over time.
A neglected heater also has a shorter lifespan than one that’s regularly serviced – forcing you to buy a brand-new system much sooner.
At Meyer Heating & Air, our St. Louis heating technicians will inspect your system to check for issues and any potential problems. During your HVAC service agreement visit, we will also:
- Adjust the combustion
- Clean and adjust controls in your heater
- Clean burners
- Lubricate parts as needed
- Test for combustion leaks
- Test safety shutoff response
- Test blower
- Check flue for proper venting
Fall Heating Service Ensures Optimal Performance
The upcoming winter might be one with strong blizzards and polar vortexes – one where your heater is going to have to work overtime to keep you warm. Constant usage can adversely affect its performance. Be proactive.
By scheduling heater maintenance in autumn, your HVAC tech can look the system over and make any repairs before you’re too cold at home. If you fix these heater system problems while they’re still small, they won’t turn into major issues during this winter’s Snowmageddon.
A maintenance check in fall also involves our St. Louis heating technicians checking crucial components of your system, including gas lines, electrical connections, and carbon monoxide levels. Having a HVAC technician identify and address possible safety hazards before the house is closed up tight for winter is an easy way to safeguard your family and home.
An act as simple as wrapping an exposed wire or fixing a small leak can keep your heating and cooling system – and your loved ones – safe.
