Have a unit in your new home inspected
It's a common and important step to have a home fully inspected before you decide you want to purchase it. One of the inspections you want to have done is one of the HVAC system. There are times when people end up purchasing a home without having inspections done first, and if this is how you bought your home, then you want to have the system inspected as soon as you can. Even though you already bought the home, you are still going to want to know what shape the heating and cooling is in, so you make sure you have any problems that are found taken care of before you start using the system.
Have the system serviced each year
No matter how well things were working last year, you still want to have servicing done to the system before using it this year. The servicing should take place before you turn it on. This way, nothing you do will cause a new problem to happen that causes more problems. When the tech is there, they will look things over while cleaning the system, and when it's turned on, you will know it will work.
Have any problems taken care of ASAP
Anything different that happens with the system is something that should lead to a service call. Whether you are hearing things from the system you never have in the past, you are smelling things, or you are feeling a difference with regards to the way the home is getting heated, a call needs to be made for someone to come out. The system has so many working parts, and each part depends on another. So, if you don't have one issue properly cared for, then that can lead to a sort of domino effect taking place where one problem can lead to another which can lead to another. Before you know it, you can have a lot of things that now need fixing, or you may even be looking at the need for full unit replacement.
