Tune-Ups and Maintenance: A New Year's Resolution
There go the holidays. We're into another new year (hello 2016!). By now you're a pro at changing a 5 to a 6, but what have you done about your resolutions? On track? Long gone? One thing is for sure, now is the time to make a commitment to take care of your HVAC system. BODEK INC. is here to help you do it the right way.
Did you have your yearly checkup yet? Call us or request service online and get on the schedule! Everything might be working fine now, but you can't be sure how long that will last. A maintenance check-up will assess what shape your HVAC system and equipment is in. It may be that your system will pass with flying colors, or it may be that it needs some work. If you don't what end of the spectrum your system is on, you should have a full system check.
The guys at BODEK INC. will get your maintenance up-to-date and address any problems or causes for concern. Then we will get to work fixing anything that needs fixing. Once problems are addressed the routine maintenance can resume–filter replacement, tune-ups, etc. Preventative HVAC maintenance is faster, easier and cheaper than repair. Let us help you keep it that way! How can you expect your system to have a long life if you don't maintain it?
When you know something is wrong – DON'T WAIT! Strange noises, lack of heat/cold air, or when you find ice on your A/C unit all warrant a service call. These problems may be easy to fix if they are caught before they get worse, but they definitely can become major issues if they are not addressed. That strange furnace noise could be a worn-out fan bearing; the not-so-cold A/C might be dangerously low on refrigerant; and that frost on the condenser (that’s the name of the outdoor A/C unit) is possibly a symptom of a broken fan or debris in the unit. Ignoring problems won't fix them. You'll only spend more money and be left with a headache in the long run.
Prioritizing your HVAC system and treating it the same way you treat your car is the only way you can rest easy knowing the equipment the keeps you warm (or cool!) will be there for you when you need it the most. Have your ducts inspected, cleaned and sealed if you are worried about them. Is your goal to lower your energy bill? We can hep you meet that goal in a budget that works for you. And if you are thinking about an upgrade, BODEK INC. is up-to-date on all the latest technologies and options so that you can make the best decision for your home while relying on our expertise.
Often, folks wait until something needs to be done. But in the long run it’s usually cheaper to take initiative and get the jump on problems before they arise. If you really want to be an overachiever –be an early-adopter for new technology. It will improve your comfort, lower your carbon footprint and utility bill, and give you peace of mind. Whether you’re eying a smart thermostat or a heat pump, getting on the first wave of HVAC equipment can be rewarding, lucrative, and a lot of fun, too! (Fun?! Really?! SURE! Watch the savings roll in. Now, THAT is fun.)
Make this your year to complete your resolutions. Get your maintenance service scheduled today, so you can forget about it tomorrow. You can call the shots, instead of being at the whims of your home system. Poor performance? Breakdowns? Make them a thing of the past in 2016.
