The holiday season is a festive and busy time, but you don’t want the festivities to be spoiled by a broken heating system. Fortunately, preventing disaster is quite simple. Checking and replacing your filters as necessary and scheduling a tune-up are all that you will need to do to optimize your HVAC system for peak performance in the coming season. This will leave you free to enjoy the comfort of your home without having to deal with an unexpected breakdown.

You can replace the filters yourself, or you can have one of our specialists do this for you when they arrive for the checkup. Just remember to keep changing your filters at least once a month between checkups. Members of our “Essential Filter Plan” receive filters shipped directly to their door for a low monthly fee, so filters are always on hand when they are needed.

While your HVAC unit is being checked, it is also wise to have the ductwork inspected for leaks and damage. Wild animals, rodents, and other pests may have managed to access your attic, which is a very common problem for residents in Austin, TX. These pests can cause all sorts of damage, such as chewing holes through your ductwork, and you could be losing conditioned air without even knowing it. We can inspect your ducts and fix any leaks so that you’re not wasting your energy heating your attic.

Call us here at AiRCO at (512) 634-8049 to schedule your $79 furnace tune up. You may even be eligible for a $40 Natural Gas Tune Up Rebate from Texas Gas, which we can verify before we come out. So take the time to prepare your system for the coming season. Our friendly staff and your peace of mind are just a simple phone call away.
