Chill Out & Heat Up

As the weather grows cooler and the days get shorter, your HVAC unit will need to shift gears. When it’s time to heat things up, American Mechanical, Inc. is here to help rekindle the fire.

Your HVAC has worked hard all summer to keep it’s cool, and now as we enter the mild days of fall, it may enjoy a brief respite. Use the downtime wisely, however, because soon enough you’ll be calling on your system again.

As with any relationship, your HVAC may need a little warm-up before things can get hot. Show some love to your heater, and you may be surprised at how enthusiastically it may respond!

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, it’s true. With the Home Care Agreement offered by American Mechanical, Inc. you can take steps to make sure that your HVAC system lives a long, functional and efficient life by your side.

Why Won’t You Look at Me?
Take a good, long look at your HVAC system’s hardware. Is there debris building up on your outside unit? Are the coils or tubes showing wear, tear, and damage? The physical appearance of your HVAC unit is a reflection of its practical wellbeing. If it’s been neglected and ignored, chances are good that it looks it.

Take the time to clear away any dirt or leaves that may be adorning the unit, clean, lubricate or clear blockages as necessary, or call American Mechanical, Inc. to take care of the dirty work. That’s what we’re here for!

Baby, It’s cold Outside.
As the temperature drops outside, the pressure falls on your HVAC to warm things up inside. We all know that any successful relationship is give and take, and your HVAC needs some help now and then. If your home is not properly insulated, then all the hot air your heater is pumping won’t stick around.

Check the insulation around your windows, doors and vents. Light a match, a candle or a stick of incense and hold it up to the cracks around these areas. Does the smoke waver or shake, or does it hold steady? If the smoke is disrupted, then air is getting through that crack.

Don’t Let Me Out of Your Sight.
You can’t take your HVAC everywhere, but you can keep an eye on the thermostat and your monthly bills. Keep the thermostat consistent. Do the bills match? If not, then you’re losing energy somewhere.

With an annual checkup and some regular maintenance, your HVAC should run smoothly and efficiently. If that’s not the case, then we’re sorry to say your system may be suffering from neglect.

A quick visit from American Mechanical, Inc. is better than couples’ therapy for you two! We’ll have you co-existing peacefully once again in no time.
