The weather is getting colder. You will require more heat to keep your home comfortable. This does not mean your heating bill needs to become unreasonable. Shavitz Heating and Air Conditioning have been providing HVAC in Glenview, IL for four generations.
We are experts at spotting potential problems that will cause your heating bill to rise. Now is the time to prepare your home and HVAC system for the winter freeze by scheduling a pre-season inspection.
Why Schedule a Pre-Season Inspection?
Most people are not experts on car maintenance. They don’t hesitate to take their vehicle to a trained mechanic. They rely on the mechanic to keep their car operating safely. They also rely on the mechanic to keep the car operating efficiently and to keep fuel costs down. Mechanics can spot problems early to keep repair costs down and prevent emergency repair needs.
Take care of your HVAC like you take care of your car. Have an HVAC technician review your system between seasons to keep it operating safely, efficiently and spot problems before they become emergencies, through thorough maintenance.
An HVAC technician is trained to spot hazards that may endanger your home and its occupants. This could be that you have items stored near the equipment that could be flammable. An inspection will catch existing or developing issues that may increase carbon monoxide in your home. The technician will look for debris and dust buildup that would impact your air quality.
At Shavitz Heating and Air Conditioning, we want to help keep your heating bills as low as possible. An efficiency check may include a recommendation for a programmable thermostat. This way your system only works when you need it. You won’t pay for heat when no one is home.
An evaluation of the air distribution will be completed. Ensuring the air is evenly distributed throughout your home will keep the whole household more comfortable. It means your system is operating efficiently, which means lower heating bills.
If air is not moving freely through the home the technician will look for obstacles restricting the airflow. Restrictions on airflow make your system work harder. Harder work means higher heat bills. We may recommend moving furniture or obstacles away from intake and output vents.
Keeping your monthly heating bills low is important but keeping your system running for as long as possible is our priority. Your HVAC system should last at least 10-15 years. Regular maintenance helps the system reach its full lifespan. Catching small repairs early, like a crack in the heat exchanger, is key to preventing an early demise of the equipment.
Scheduling regular inspections and maintenance keeps you compliant with your warranty. Most warranties require proof the system was regularly maintained by a certified professional before they will pay a claim.
Shavitz Heating and Air Conditioning would like your well-maintained heating system to run until it reaches the end of its lifespan.
