We don’t have seasons in the Inland Empire the way the rest of the country does. Our winters are extremely mild and our summers are long and hot. Heaters tend to see us for a few short months in the winter — usually during our cool nights — and air conditioning season starts sooner and sooner every year it seems. We’re not even officially into spring yet, and chances are you’ve had to run your air conditioner a number of times this year already.
In this environment, it can be hard to give your heating and air conditioning system the kind of service it needs to run at its best. Without regular maintenance a breakdown or similar repair issue could catch you by surprise very easily. In our environment, where summer temperatures often hit triple digits, a breakdown could cause serious problems for your home.
Now Is the Time for Maintenance
A maintenance session is the best way of preventing such repairs. It’s essentially a tune-up, which gives the technician a chance to look for common problems with the system. Small problems like loose bolts and clogged filters can be addressed as part of the maintenance session. That will improve the system’s efficiency — helping to keep monthly bills down — and can stop a number of serious problems before they start. In the case of your furnace, it means giving it a look at the end of its yearly cycle and making sure it doesn’t have any problems that could turn around and bite you next fall when you need it again.
For more advanced problems — the kind that require formal repair sessions — maintenance lets the technician spot them before they shut your system down. That tends to keep the costs of repairs down, since the damage doesn’t have as much time to spread, as well as letting you schedule repairs before the weather gets too hot.
