HVAC System Maintenance
You change the oil and rotate and balance the tires on your car every 3000 miles, like clockwork. You wouldn’t dream of doing it any other way, because you know it’s the best way to extend the life of your vehicle.
When was the last time you did the same thing for your HVAC system?
The HVAC system in your home is the most expensive appliance you own, but almost 50% of homeowners don’t have a regular maintenance schedule for their systems. Your unit is a hard-working machine with moving parts, fluids that need levels checked, and surfaces that need to be cleaned to maintain peak efficiency and keep you comfortable. Sadly, many of us just don’t think about our HVAC units until they break down and we’re not comfortable.
You know that the cost of regular auto maintenance is less than the cost of a catastrophic breakdown, or buying a new car. Why should regular maintenance for your HVAC system be any different? Regular maintenance for your home’s system can save money every month by lowering heating bills, and extend the life of your unit significantly. Regular maintenance can also catch small problems before they grow into big repairs, saving you money and preventing the need for excessive emergency services.
Have your air conditioning serviced in the spring, and the heating system serviced in the fall. This lets the technician assess a system that’s been sitting idle for months before it’s called on to go into full-time operation. These routine maintenance checks ensure that your unit is prepped for the season, and operating at peak efficiency. A complete inspection and servicing of your ducts one a year would be a good idea, as well.
