Fall can mean some pretty wonderful things. It's the beginning of the holiday season, which brings with it food, family and celebrations. Fall also means changes in the landscape, with beautifully colored leaves and, often, a brisk chill in the air.
But while fall is a wonderful time of the year, it also means winter isn't far behind. Make sure you're ready for the coming cold weather with a system check from your local Lennox® Dealer.
A system check keeps your comfort going strong.
When you get your system checked, your Lennox Dealer will carefully inspect each piece of equipment to make sure it's running at its best. This will make your system run more effectively and efficiently.
During your system check, your Dealer will:
Check the refrigerant in your heat pump or air conditioner.
Too much or too little refrigerant will inhibit the efficiency of your system and potentially cause compressor damage.
Check filters or collection cells in your filtration system.
A clogged or dirty filter makes your furnace or air handler work harder to move air, which wastes electricity and reduces the life of your system.
Clean the blower motor and fan blades of your air handler or furnace.
A clean fan and blower run more quietly and efficiently.
Clean your indoor coil.
A dirty coil can't transfer heat as efficiently as a clean coil, which can inhibit system performance.
Clean your outdoor coil.
Like a dirty indoor coil, a dirty outdoor coil can't transfer heat efficiently, which makes more work for the system while consuming more energy to keep you comfortable.
Check the performance of your system.
By measuring the effectiveness with which your system heats and cools compared to ambient air temperatures, your Lennox Dealer can tell how well your system works, and whether or not problems may be developing.
A system check is a smart investment.
Having your system checked by a Lennox Dealer can be a very smart investment. By paying a little money now, you help lower your energy costs over the entire season. That can translate to substantial savings in energy costs.
Having a system check now is also an investment in the life of your system. By catching small problems before they become big, you can save yourself costly repairs down the line. You can also help prevent unexpected breakdowns that can require new equipment, while leaving you at the mercy of winter's worst.
Fall is the right time.
There is no better time to get a system check than fall. First of all, the relatively mild weather means that even if your Lennox Dealer finds a problem, you won't shiver through brutal winter weather while repairs are made.
A fall system check also means your Lennox Dealer will be able to schedule you sooner rather than later, because he or she won't be dealing with the emergency situations that can happen when furnaces break down during winter weather.
Contact your Dealer, preserve your system.
Getting a thorough system check is as simple as calling or emailing your nearest Lennox Dealer. Even if you don't have Lennox equipment, your local Lennox Dealer has the skill and expertise to perform a system check and keep you feeling consistently great, even in inconsistent weather.
