Now that it is fall, you will need a HVAC repair service in Mesa, but for different reasons.
Winterize Your A/C in Mesa
It’s November now. So that means only one thing: fall is here. In other parts of the US, fall means crisp autumn air, hot cider, and pumpkin spice everything. In Arizona, it means that in the morning you either turn your heater on, or tough it out for a few hours until you turn your A/C on. Air conditioning? In November? Well, consider if you will. It can easily be 90 degrees in the late afternoon. Even with good insulation, your home can be warmer than that. But let’s say for the sake of argument, you don’t turn on your cool at all. Well, you still need a Mesa HVAC service to come in and winterize your A/C.
Winterizing means preparing your home’s HVAC system for this cooler season. It is just one of the many HVAC services available. While we don’t have to deal with below zero temperatures in Phoenix, it’s a good idea to put draft guards at the base of doors. Change your air filter if you’re going to plan to run your A/C. This will help to prevent fall allergies such as mold or dust. Most importantly of all, call a A/C repair service to come in for a quarterly A/C checkup. A HVAC service will clean your ducts, top off your coolant/refrigerant, oil all motors, and inspect the electrical wiring. The next thing is to inspect your heating.
How Necessary is Heating in Arizona?
Arizona has a mild winter climate. While your life may not depend on your heater, as it does in colder parts of the country, it still can get cold in the valley. Sometimes, during a cold spell, the outside temperature can easily drop to the 20’s and 30’s, more than enough to cause hypothermia. And even without the potential life threatening effects of cold, there is the discomfort involved. When we get cold, we have a tendency to hunch our shoulders, which can cause back spasms, and even lead to pinched nerves. So why would you want to be without heat in your home. That’s where an HVAC service can help as well: with your home’s heater.
As with your air conditioning, your HVAC service in Mesa will check your heater’s coils, and electrical connections. They change any filters, and make sure that the ducts are clean. All of this and more is why you call a HVAC service in the fall.
