Fall is for Football (and System Maintenance)
Well, it finally got here. Fall took its time in arriving this year, but cooler days are on the way and our home comfort systems need the rest. Record-breaking temperatures into October made for an extended cooling season, but it looks like we now have some time before the cold (at least north Florida cold) arrives in a couple months.
Other than giving you the opportunity to wear that sweater you got for Christmas last year, the cooler weather is also the perfect time to have your system looked at, tuned-up or even replaced if you need it.
We have fewer emergency calls in the fall, which means we are more available to do the visits that are not as time sensitive. Now is the time to have our technicians come out and give your system a 28-point inspection, which will ensure that it is working at maximum efficiency and is a lot less likely to give you problems this winter.
While you can get a tune-up as a one-time service, it makes sense for a lot of people to sign up for our Total Comfort Service Program, which includes one or two tune-ups per year, plus a lot of other great benefits including no overtime charges, same-day service all year round and 15 percent off any repairs.
With the protection program, if you call us at midnight because your system stops working, we will be there that night – with no overtime charges. That is great peace of mind for just a little more than a one-time visit.
I think it also makes sense that this is the perfect time of year to replace a system that maybe in its last days of heating or cooling. It is a lot better to be without air for a couple days now than in August. Our team will give you an honest evaluation of how your system is operating today and the value of either sticking with it for another couple years or making the switch to a new, high-efficiency model.
But regardless of what you need this fall for your system, please remember to change your filters regularly. That is the best single thing you can do to ensure your system works better and lives longer.
