  • Call in a professional for any issues or noises. The autumn months are a great time to call in an HVAC professional to give the unit an overall inspection and to make sure that you won't be unpleasantly surprised during the first cold snap. Getting a tune-up by hiring a professional HVAC technician to inspect your system can save you time and money in the long run. The HVAC expert will be able to inspect the pilot, check the blower motor bearings, inspect the thermostat for proper calibration and do a complete cycle operation check. These steps can ensure that your HVAC unit is performing efficiently and safely during the colder months. Regular maintenance for an HVAC unit will mean cleaner indoor air, lower energy costs, and a longer life for the machine. Be sure to add HVAC maintenance to your fall chores.
