As the leaves start to change color and the weather begins to cool down, it’s time to start thinking about preparing your rental properties for fall. One of the most important things you can do is check the HVAC systems. Fall is a great time to call Basic Construction to do some routine HVAC maintenance on rental property HVAC systems. Plus, it’ll save you from making costly repairs down the road when we make these important maintenance checks.
Replace the Furnace Filter
Replacing the furnace filter is one of the most important things you can do to keep your HVAC system running smoothly. A clogged filter can cause the system to work harder than necessary, which can lead to decreased efficiency and increased energy costs. Basic Construction can help you replace the filter in your rental property’s furnace quickly and easily.
Check the Ignition Assembly
The ignition assembly is responsible for lighting the furnace, so it’s important to make sure it’s in good working order. Basic Construction can check the ignition assembly to make sure it’s properly lighting the furnace and functioning correctly. We’ll also tighten anything that’s loose and light the pilot light to make sure it’s functioning and ready for the colder months.
Check Electric or Gas Connections
One of the most important things you can do to keep your HVAC system running safely and smoothly is to check the electric or gas connections. Basic Construction can inspect all of the electrical wiring and valves to make sure they’re in good condition and aren’t at risk of causing a fire. We’ll also check the gas lines to make sure they’re properly connected and aren’t leaking.
Get Your Rentals Ready for Fall & Winter
There’s nothing worse than getting a call from a renter at 2 a.m. with a complaint that a major home system isn’t working. So, Basic Construction helps you stay ahead of those calls with preventative HVAC maintenance. We can also fix any roofing leaks and electrical issues – all in preparation for the fall and winter months. Submit your work request online or call our Indianapolis, IN, office at (317) 505-1030.
