Do I really need regular maintenance on my HVAC?
Your HVAC system is free from weird sounds or funny smells, and it’s been working just fine, so why get regular maintenance checks?
Like our personal health or our car’s performance, a regular maintenance check on your HVAC system can reveal problems you can’t hear or smell so you can stop it in its tracks before it’s too late.
With regular maintenance checks you can:
Stay warm in the winter and cool in the summer while keeping energy costs low
Before you see or feel a problem within your HVAC System, you might see your energy bill creeping up. Think back to your car, regular tune-ups provide you continuous performance so you can save money on things like gas. Get the temperature just right in your home and don’t pay more for it than you have to.
Increase the life of your equipment and avoid untimely breakdowns
A poorly maintained HVAC system is a breakdown waiting to happen. A small mechanical issue can snowball and cause other mechanical issues throughout the system. Regular check-ups can prevent an untimely breakdown in the middle of a sweltering summer or a frigid winter—because nobody has time for that! It also expands the lifetime of your system with preventative maintenance and early-detection repairs, saving you money over time.
Improve your equipment efficiency so you have an HVAC system you can depend on all year
Over time, pieces in your HVAC system will experience wear and tear and the performance of your HVAC system will dwindle. A maintenance check will ensure connections are tightened, moving parts are lubricated, and thermostat settings are functioning.
Maintain a safe home for you and your household
More than saving you money, a regular HVAC maintenance check protects your family. A failing system is a hazard. Carbon monoxide gas can fill the air in your home if your furnace has a crack in the heat exchanger, for example. An electric HVAC system can also short circuit and cause a fire.
You have an HVAC system so you can feel comfortable and cozy at home. By maintaining the life and efficiency of your system you can save money, prevent issues, and keep your home at that temperature that’s just right.
