With winter behind us and summer heat still ahead, Roanoke homeowners may not be thinking about the health of their HVAC systems. But now is the time for proactive maintenance. An HVAC inspection and tune-up now can make a difference between indoor comfort or sweaty misery later.
Why wait for HVAC maintenance?
The HVAC service experts at Southern Trust are ready to give you air conditioning system a thorough tune-up before summer heat is in full swing.
Without annual maintenance, your HVAC system will start wearing down, using more energy to keep up with cooling demands. That means higher cooling bills. Plus, the wear and tear will shorten the AC’s useful lifespan, meaning you’ll need to pay for an expensive replacement years ahead of schedule.
During a tune-up, our service experts will thoroughly clean and inspect your HVAC unit. Tune-up services include:
- Coil cleaning.
- Evaluation of coolant levels.
- Inspection of wiring and electrical components.
- Thermostat calibration.
- Air filter inspection.
- Cleaning of condensate trays or drains.
- Motor assembly inspection.
Not only can regular maintenance keep your AC running at top capacity, but it can protect you financially. The fine print of your HVAC warranty probably requires that the equipment be tuned-up annually. Skipping maintenance means you risk voiding the warranty, leaving you holding the bag should the equipment fail.
Digital thermostats and more
While they are at your home for an HVAC tune-up, our service experts can also take the opportunity to upgrade your old thermostat to a new digital one. A smart thermostat can help reduce energy usage —saving homeowners nearly $200 per year in energy costs in some cases.
