With winter finally receding into memory and the extreme heat of summer still weeks in the future, there is no better time for an annual inspection and service of any home’s heating, ventilation and air conditioning system (HVAC).
According to Golden Rule Plumbing, Heating and Cooling in Des Moines, such annual maintenance is critical to sustaining the long-term life of a home’s most critical system, it’s HVAC equipment.
“Annual maintenance is incredibly helpful to keep you aware of the condition of your older equipment,” said Bobby Johnson, sales and marketing manager at Golden Rule. “It sets expectations for the upcoming seasons so you are not caught off guard and left with a hot house!”
Although the highly trained professional technicians at Golden Rule Plumbing, Heating and Cooling conduct system checks throughout the year in existing homes, Johnson recommends scheduling a tune-up on air conditioning systems now.
“We focus on the older equipment, 15-plus years, in the spring and fall to try and catch any irregularities before the heat or cold of the seasons hit,” said Johnson.
According to Johnson, such annual maintenance can reduce costs on repairs and extend the life of heating and cooling equipment.
“Maintenance helps get the most out of your system,” said Johnson.
Annual maintenance is also crucial well-being and peace of mind within any home.
“Safety comes into play when you are dealing with furnaces. Annual inspections can detect if there is a CO2 issue leaking into the house,” noted Johnson.
Maintenance of HVAC systems is available by appointment and is especially easy for members of Golden Rule’s Gold Club. For annual members, Golden Rule’s expert technicians perform two complete system checks each year, covering both the furnace and the air conditioner.
