How to Prevent an Emergency HVAC Breakdown During the Holidays

The toast will fall jam side down, you’ll need that last dollar bill as soon as you spend it on something for yourself, and your home heating and cooling system will break down exactly when you need it the most. If you’re looking for the best way to avoid the nightmare of your furnace, boiler, or water heater breaking down when you have a house full of people over for the holidays, you’ve come to the right place!

Here is what the home comfort and efficiency experts at Calfo recommend when it comes to preventing emergency HVAC breakdowns this year.

Keep Your HVAC Running With Proper Maintenance

Including your heating, cooling, and even your plumbing systems in your annual maintenance considerations will greatly reduce the risk of an untimely breakdown. Not only will furnace maintenance, AC maintenance, and water heater maintenance extend the lifespan of these valuable appliances, it will also increase the likelihood that you’ll catch any big issues before they leave you high and dry. 

Here are a few things you can do yourself to maintain your heating, cooling, and plumbing systems throughout the year, and maximize the benefits of maintenance with the experts at Calfo:

  • Change your air filters every 30 days
  • Clear any outdoor units of debris
  • Clean your air vents 
  • Mind the heating and cooling energy usage

As long as you are taking care of these, Calfo can take care of the rest. Calfo provides Check Up and Tune Up maintenance services that will put your boiler, furnace, heat pump, or air conditioner through a 21 to 58 point inspection. This ensures all moving parts are properly lubricated, screws are tightened, belts are adjusted, and that issues like leaks or deterioration are identified before they cause serious damage.

Added Benefits of HVAC Maintenance

Not only will you greatly reduce the risk of an annoying emergency over the frigid holidays thanks to HVAC maintenance, but you’ll also notice a few other benefits as well, including:

  • A more comfortable home
  • Improved indoor air quality
  • Reduced heating and cooling bills
  • A more efficient home

And while we can’t stop every single potential emergency situation, the Calfo team promises that at every step of the way, you will get the red carpet treatment.
