Groundhog Day can be more than a fun holiday predicting the rest of winter; have you ever considered that it’s also a great opportunity to request a tune-up for your HVAC system? At Willco Air Conditioning, Refrigeration & Heating Inc., our team of certified experts can keep your heating and cooling system in top shape. It just so happens that this time of year is a prime moment for an HVAC checkup appointment.

When You Should Schedule Routine HVAC Maintenance

As Groundhog Day marks the end of the coldest part of winter, it's also an ideal time to check your heating system. For example, constant freezing temperatures can put a lot of strain on key furnace components. Staying on top of routine HVAC maintenance gives a certified technician a chance to see if your furnace needs a little extra attention.

Using Groundhog Day as your maintenance reminder also prepares your air conditioning or cooling system before the busy summer season. In fact, sticking with two maintenance appointments every year will offer lasting results. One should be before spring with the other in fall.

Must-Do Maintenance Tasks for Your HVAC System

Routine maintenance tune-ups are vital for ensuring your HVAC system operates with optimum efficiency. A comprehensive inspection and cleaning routine allows our technicians the time they need to verify that everything is in tip-top shape. During a visit, some specific maintenance tasks your technician will complete can include:

  • Replacing the air filters or replacing any lost coolant: Ensuring the right balance of airflow and filtration is essential, which means regularly cleaning or replacing your air filters. If your system has lost any refrigerant, we'll restore the supply and locate the problem.
  • Clearing the drain lines: Flushing out the drainage system keeps things running smoothly and avoids water damage.
  • Inspecting electrical connections and safety features: Making sure that the wiring and software features are working correctly is crucial. This helps prevent fires and ensures smooth operation.

The best kind of HVAC maintenance is proactive—averting problems before they occur. Such proactive service from our professionals can give your heating and cooling systems the optimal opportunity for long-term efficiency.
