3 Questions You Should Ask Your Technician During Your Maintenance Visit

Helms Heating & Air Conditioning - Thursday, December 14, 2017

Discover what your HVAC tech can teach you about maintenance agreements.

Maintenance agreements have the benefit of getting an experienced technician to your home to service your HVAC system twice a year. You know what that means? It means you have an expert available to ask questions about your HVAC and the service they're doing. Here are three questions you should ask your technician during your maintenance visit:

Question #1: How Do I Program My Thermostat?

One of the most common reasons for poor HVAC performance and reduced energy efficiency is the failure to utilize the programming features on your thermostat. If you haven't programmed it before, it can seem a bit intimidating. But a few minutes of training can mean more comfort and consistency with your home temperature and savings on your utility bills.

Question #2: How Do I Change the Air Filter?

The air filter is the gateway to the well-being of your furnace. It needs changing every three months, on average, to continue to be effective and protect your HVAC system from dust and dirt. It's simple to change. Your tech can show you what kind of filter you need and how to install it.

Question #3: Why Is Regular Maintenance so Important?

There are many benefits when your heating and cooling system gets serviced and maintained twice a year. Have your technician show you their checklist and explain why giving your HVAC some TLC is so important.

Don't neglect to schedule your twice-yearly HVAC maintenance. And when the appointment comes, pick the brain of the technician who arrives to do the maintenance visit. To find out more about maintenance agreements and your system, contact our expert team at Helms Heating and Air conditioning.
