Groundhog Day can be more than a fun holiday predicting the rest of winter; have you ever considered that it’s also a good time of year to schedule routine maintenance for your HVAC system? At Pratt Brothers, our team of certified experts can keep your heating and cooling system in top shape. It just so happens that this time of year is a prime moment for an HVAC maintenance visit.

The Best Time to Plan Your HVAC Maintenance Service

As Groundhog Day marks the potential for spring, it's also an ideal time to take a look at your furnace. For example, constant freezing temperatures can put considerable wear on important parts of the system. Staying on top of routine HVAC maintenance gives a professional HVAC technician a chance to help you decide if your furnace needs a little extra attention.

Scheduling maintenance around Groundhog Day also prepares your air conditioning or cooling system before the busy summer season. In fact, sticking with two maintenance appointments each year will offer lasting results. One should be as winter ends with the other in autumn.

Must-Do Maintenance Tasks for Your HVAC System

Routine maintenance visits are vital for ensuring your HVAC system operates efficiently for many years. A comprehensive inspection and cleaning routine gives our technicians plenty of time to verify that everything is in working order. During a visit, some specific maintenance tasks your technician will complete can include:

  • Replacing the air filters or replacing any lost coolant: Ensuring the right balance of airflow and filtration is key, which means periodically cleaning or switching out the air filters. If your system has leaked refrigerant, we'll restore the supply and find the problem.
  • Clearing the drain lines: Clearing the drainage system keeps things running smoothly and avoids water damage.
  • Checking electrical connections and safety features: Making sure that the wiring and software features are functioning properly is crucial. This avoids fires and preserves your system's reliability.

The best kind of HVAC maintenance is proactive—preventing problems before they happen. This kind of proactive service from experienced professionals can give your heating and cooling systems the best chance for peak performance.
