Prevent Halloween Tricks by Treating your Home to HVAC Maintenance

Don’t let your home become a scary place when your furnace starts acting up on Halloween! Trying to deal with a broken furnace is no treat during the middle of winter, which is precisely why you should have your unit checked out by an I Want Smart Contractor now, before colder weather arrives!

It’s important for homeowners to remember to schedule an appointment with a SMART Contractor to come out and perform preventive maintenance on your furnace and air conditioning unit before extreme weather arrives each summer and each winter. Your system will last longer before it needs to be replaced, which saves you money. The better your HVAC system is taken care of, the longer it will last and the better it will perform. It won’t have to work as hard or as often to warm or cool your home, and you also won’t need to replace it as often.

Autumn is a great time to schedule this maintenance and also to purchase a new air conditioner or furnace, if need be. Keep in mind that during the fall, I Want Smart Contractors offer special promotions, rebates and discounts not only on new HVAC components, but also on services, including regular preventive maintenance tune-ups. You’ll want to take advantage of the opportunity to save money while you ensure your unit is in good working order. This is especially true if you are following your maintenance agreement that applies to your specific unit.

Don’t wait for a scary furnace breakdown this Halloween to call an I Want Smart Contractor for all of your HVAC maintenance needs! We’re happy to provide services throughout Northeastern Illinois and it’s surrounding areas. Find your local I Want Smart Contractor here, and schedule a convenient appointment today!


Tips to Maintain your Heating System

Your home heating system is designed to provide you with worry-free performance for many decades. While your heating system may not need frequent heating repair services, routine central heating maintenance will help your system operate at peak efficiency. By keeping up on your home’s heating repairs, you can prevent a heating emergency down the road. An I Want Smart Contractor can help you keep your heating in great shape throughout the seasons. To assist you with your heating repair needs, here is a look at some essential maintenance tips for your heating system.

Check Your Thermostat

Your thermostat is one of the most vital parts of your home heating system. To keep your heating system in great shape, it is a good idea to check your thermostat on an annual basis. When you check your thermostat, make sure that it is set to a comfortable temperature. By setting your programmable thermostat, you can also help to cut back on your heating bills.

Change Your Filters

Your heating system is equipped with filters that are designed to remove allergens, dust, and debris from your indoor air. When your heating system is operating on a daily basis, your filters can become quickly clogged. To maintain your heating system, it is a great idea to change your filters on a monthly basis. With fresh filters, your home heater will be able to operate at maximum efficiency throughout the coldest months of the year.

Schedule Professional Repairs

An I Want Smart Contractor will be able to perform all of the most important maintenance procedures for your heating system. In general, it is a good idea to set up a maintenance appointment on an annual basis. During your annual service, your Smart technician will inspect your heating system for any signs of damage. With preventative maintenance, you can help your system last for many years to come. Take advantage of our Smart Rebates and SAVE even more!
