When To Schedule HVAC Maintenance

Most homeowners don’t think too much about their heating or cooling systems until they stop working. If you think about it, your HVAC system practically runs all year round.

From cooling your home during the sweltering hot summer months to keeping your family warm in the icy cold winter, your heating and cooling system works nonstop to keep your home comfortable. With the constant usage of your HVAC system, it’s a good idea to have it checked out regularly to make sure it can keep up with the extreme temperatures Virginia weather is famous for.

Air Conditioner Maintenance

It is recommended that you schedule maintenance for your air conditioning unit at least once a year in the spring before the temperatures rise, but it is best to have it checked again in the fall after you are finished running it for the season. This will ensure your unit stays in tip top shape to continue keeping your home cool and your energy bills down.

Heating System Maintenance

You should have your heating system serviced in the fall before you need to turn it on for the season. Annual servicing can detect small issues before they become bigger, more expensive problems and make sure that your home will stay warm all winter long.

Heat Pump Maintenance

Heat pumps operate a bit differently than typical furnaces and air conditioning systems. Since they offer both heating and cooling for your home, it is suggested that you schedule routine maintenance every 6 months to ensure your heat pump keeps working efficiently to keep your family comfortable all year ‘round.

Signs You May Need To Schedule HVAC Maintenance

Most of the signs that you are overdue for much-needed HVAC maintenance are easy to spot if you know what to look for.

  • Little To No Air Flow Coming From Heating Or Cooling System

  • Strange Noises Or Smells Coming From Your HVAC Unit

  • Unusually High Energy Bills

  • Recurring Problems & Need For Constant Repairs

  • Your HVAC System Is Over 10 Years Old

  • It Has Been More Than A Year Since Your Last Tune-Up

Crowther's HVAC did a total install for an older house for me 14 years ago. They are very good at what they do and are also the epitome of customer service. Any problems that I have had they took care of immediately at very reasonable prices. Add in that they are all really good people and you have the formula for a very successful business. Rereccomend them highly."

I selected Crowther to replace both of my HVAC systems and they did a great job. They went the extra mile to correct duct work, and add a vent in order to bring my homes HVAC systems up to the best performance.

We had a total duel system heat pump replacement. It was a pleasure working with CHAC. From the sales rep to the technicians responsible for the install. Very professional in their craftsmanship and ensuring everything was installed and working correctly. Very courteous and respectful of our property. We are new to the area and am glad we chose CHAC for our HVAC needs.
