When’s the Best Time for HVAC Repair?

The Answer Might Surprise You!

summer hvac service tennesseeYour heating system is probably the last thing you’re thinking about in July or August. However, the dog days of summer are a smart time to have us come in and take care of any problems you may have noticed but didn’t take care of quite yet. It’s a good time to schedule your seasonal tune-up, too!

Why A Summer Tune-up?

Here are five reasons why you shouldn’t wait until the fall or mid-winter for heating equipment repairs:

  1. Those funny noises you were hearing last winter aren’t going to go away over the summer. And whatever is causing them could get worse! Having us come check it out now can help you avoid a major breakdown or a potential gas leak in the middle of winter when you need your heat the most.
  2. Summer is a traditionally less busy time for our heating repair technicians. That means it’s easier to get your choice of appointment.
  3. Most repairs don’t take long, but an out-of-stock part could slow down work. In summer, it’s no problem to be without heat for a few extra days.
  4. If we diagnose a more serious problem, you may need to replace your equipment rather than repair it. Again, doing the work during the summer means you won’t have to worry while we remove your old system and install a new one.
  5. The maintenance done now doesn’t “wear off” before the winter, so your system will be ready to go on the first chilly night. And, if we discover any potential problems, we can tackle them before they become bigger issues.

Don’t Forget Your Water Heater

Of course, you need hot water year-round. But that’s even more reason to make sure your water heater is working properly here and now. Tankless water heaters will serve you longer than a tank-type heater, but they do need regular system flushing to ensure they last.

Nip Heating Problems in the Bud

According to Murphy’s Law, if something can go wrong, it will—and usually at the worst time. But taking care of small problems over the summer can prevent them from becoming major breakdowns in the middle of winter—when your system is working it’s hardest.
