The Importance of Regular Heating and Cooling Maintenance in the Spring

They say April showers bring May flowers, but we think April should bring an Ernst Heating & Cooling technician to your Metro East, IL, home for a regular tune-up. Regular maintenance is a wise investment. Something as simple as a spring and fall tune-up can add years to your heating and cooling system. It also may catch problems while they’re still small, which means you avoid a hefty repair bill. Read on to find out why you should be scheduling spring maintenance now.

Regular maintenance can keep your warranty valid

Most new air conditioners, furnaces or other heating and cooling systems carry a manufacturer’s warranty to cover breakdowns and other issues that can hit you in the wallet. However, when you read the fine print, you may discover that the warranty requires regular tune-ups by a licensed professional. Skipping these tune-ups can invalidate your warranty and leave you on the hook for repairs.

Spring maintenance gives you a fresh start for clean indoor air

Those May flowers can be beautiful, but their blooms may also be responsible for your runny nose and itchy eyes. During a spring tune-up, your Ernst Heating & Cooling technician will thoroughly clean your system, ensuring that you’re not circulating pollen and debris throughout your home. Your Ernst technician will also check your air filter, which acts as the first line of defense against the outdoor contaminants that are trying to sneak indoors. If you’re ready for a new filter, our tech can take care of it for you.

You’ll get a boost in energy efficiency

We may have had a mild winter here in the Midwest, but your heating system was still working hard to keep your home comfortable. Certain components, such as filters, coils, and ductwork, can become dirty over time, forcing your system to work harder. During a spring tune-up, your Ernst technician will clean the inside and outside of your heating and cooling system, tightening any loose connections and replacing any frayed belts or other components that have outstayed their welcome. This increased energy efficiency means you’ll save money on energy bills. Who doesn’t want to enjoy some spring savings?

You’ll be cool this summer</h2>

When summer temperatures hit the Metro East area, you’re going to be craving cool air. That is not how you want to discover that your AC isn’t working. A timely tune-up means your AC is ready to turn on – and stay on – throughout our sultry summer months. When you invest in routine maintenance, you’ll pay yourself back in comfort.
