Clean the house, get the kids ready for school, clock in at work, cook dinner, get a workout in, pay the bills, go to bed, wake up, and do it all over again. The list goes on and on of the daily tasks we have to remember and stay on top of to keep our lives moving in a somewhat orderly fashion. When trying to keep up with the daily grind, it can be easy to forget about maintaining your HVAC system. In fact, most people don’t even think about servicing their furnaces or air conditioners until something goes wrong.

Here at Ratterree Heat & Air, we care about the well-being of you and your family and know how much of a burden a broken air conditioner or furnace can be. While unforeseen issues can occur from time to time, there are a lot of preventative measures you can take as a home or business owner to decrease the chances of your air conditioner breaking in the heat of a Fort Worth summer or your furnace deciding to stop working in the cold winter months. Not only is it extremely stressful when that happens, but it can also get expensive to repair or replace your HVAC system. Our team encourages a proactive approach to your HVAC system so that you won’t have those unpleasant surprises and won’t have to pay an expensive emergency cost down the road.

Easy Maintenance To Save You Time and Money

Whether you’re a business owner, homeowner, or both, proper maintenance of your heating and air conditioning system is crucial if you want to get your money’s worth. Here are a few tips Ratterree Heat & Air recommends to keep your HVAC working efficiently:

  • Schedule regular maintenance services: We know you have a ton of daily tasks to take care of, so do yourself a favor and schedule routine maintenance with us. When you schedule ahead, it takes the responsibility off of you to keep up on it. Our expert HVAC technicians will conduct thorough inspections of your system, both indoor and outdoor, looking for leaks, openings, appropriate levels, and more. If they find something that needs to be addressed, they will bring it to your attention right away, fix it effectively and efficiently, and leave you with peace of mind knowing a major expense was averted.
  • Clean Or Replace Air Filters: While this may seem like a simple and insignificant task, it can save you a lot of money and stress in the future. Clogged or dirty filters, if not caught in time, can cause your HVAC system to work harder than it should. This also generates more dust and debris in your home, leading to potential health concerns such as allergies and other respiratory problems. Ratterree Heat & Air will clean or replace all of your air filters when we conduct inspections, ensuring you and your family have great air quality in your home at all times.
  • Upgrade To A Programmable Thermostat: There are a ton of small changes you can make to save money with your HVAC machine, one of those changes being installing a programmable thermostat. When you utilize a programmable thermostat with your HVAC system, you are able to change the temperature of your home while you’re on vacation, at work, or sleeping. This small update will end up cutting your energy bill, which means more money back in your pocket. Want more information on your options and installing a programmable thermostat in your home?
