Three Things to Do to Prepare for a Fall Maintenance Visit
Thursday, October 12, 2017 | Smoak's Comfort Control
Maintenance agreements are easy and convenient ways to ensure your HVAC system runs as efficiently as it should. However, to make the most of them, you should take steps to prepare your heating and cooling system before your HVAC technician arrives.
Identify Any HVAC Problems You May Have
Is your air conditioner making funny sounds? Is there a weird smell coming from a vent? Your HVAC technician can address these and any other questions or problems you may have. While you could always call and ask these questions over the telephone at any time, having someone at your home or business to see, smell or feel the problem first hand can save a lot of headaches and make diagnosing problems much easier.
Know the Location of Everything Relating to Your HVAC System
Not only is it good practice to know where to find your air conditioner, heater, air handler, thermostat and circuit breakers, it can also help save time during your fall maintenance visit. As a home or business owner, you probably already know where these things sit, but it's surprising to learn how often technicians spend extra time searching for these things during their maintenance visits.
An extra benefit of knowing where everything sits is that you can rearrange any furniture or outside objects that may be in the way of a technician who is inspecting your HVAC system.
Gather Information about Your HVAC System
It can help to diagnose an issue if you have the basic information about your HVAC system readily available. Information such as the system's age, warranty period, manufacturer and model can make it much easier for an HVAC technician to assess the condition of your unit.
