March 31, 2015

The end of winter is officially on the horizon with the weather warming up in Moline you can feel spring just around the corner. Before you switch off your furnace and disregard it for another year, you’ll want to get it primed for its annual hibernation. There are some things you can do now to prep your system so it’s ready to go next season.

Flipping the Switch

There was a period where it felt as though this day wouldn’t come, but the moment has finally arrived for you to flip the switch on your thermostat from heating to cooling. Before you set it and forget it, check out your warranty. Some warranties require yearly service and maintenance in order to preserve the warranty. If you have any questions about your warranty, the team at Freed Heating & Air Conditioning will gladly help you.

Service During the Off-Season

Now is the best time to schedule your annual furnace service in Moline. Any concerns can be addressed and fixed before the time comes to turn your system back on once again for the season. You’ll be able to flip your switch to “heating” this fall and rest easy knowing that things will be running as they should.

Change Your Filters

We may sound like a broken record, but changing your air filters is one of the easiest and most important things you can do for your HVAC system as a homeowner. A clean filter keeps your system operating at peak efficiency, boosts your indoor air quality and works to extend the life of your HVAC system.
