If March is true to form this year in Harford County and the surrounding Baltimore area, it will come in like a lion and go out like a lamb. That means you’ll likely be using both your heating and air conditioning units in the same month – or close to it.
Your furnace has been working hard this cold winter. While you may be ready to shut it off and head for warmer climates, it’s a good idea to make sure your heating system is ready for next year. It can be checked during the routine maintenance call you get every six months. (You do have that service plan, don’t you?)
When your professional HVAC technician arrives for the precision tune-up, he’ll check both your heating and air conditioning units. Using a 15-point checklist, he’ll review your system from top to bottom. Expect him to turn both the heating and air conditioning units on and off. Expect him to inspect the ductwork and the unit itself. Expect him to flag any potential issues now, so that you’re aware of anything that could become an expensive problem. Even though it’s hard to imagine now, you don’t want to be sweltering on a hot, humid day without an air conditioner when a simple alert could have helped.
Preventive maintenance is invaluable. Make your appointment for a Spring tune-up now.
