While the weather is still wavering and spring hasn’t quite sprung yet, that doesn’t mean you should hold off on scheduling your preventative maintenance for your heating and cooling system. Many times, homeowners will graze over the importance of preventative maintenance on their systems but this can result in trouble down the road. Imagine a few months from now, coming home on a hot summer day, to find out that your air conditioning unit has stopped working. NOT COOL, literally.
Trusting the experts to care for your unit on a regular basis will extend the life of your system, save you money, and help you experience a number of additional benefits. On average, a heating and air conditioning system should be inspected by a professional at least twice a year. Here are a couple of reasons to get regular tune-ups:
Save Energy and Money
Over time, your HVAC system captures dust and dirt in areas like the condenser coils and air filters. If left unattended, the build-up will decrease the operating efficiency every year, which means your system won’t be able to cool your home like it should. A dirty system that is constantly running can really rack up your electric bill. With our inspections, we make sure every area of your unit is in perfect shape so that you are always saving instead of spending.
Ensure Your Safety
Everyday wear and tear can cause parts of your system to loosen or other small, possibly unnoticeable things to happen. Periods of continuous use put strain on your system and can cause minor issues to turn into bigger problems. Annual service by a qualified technician can reduce the risk that anything will go seriously wrong and cause potential damage to your system, or you and your family.
Extend Your Service Life
Scheduling an HVAC tune-up and cleaning during the spring will create significant differences in your air conditioning during the summer. Your system will operate better and longer, without needing any major repairs or replacements, when it’s properly maintained. Preventative maintenance is sure to run you a lot less than if you have to replace your whole system.
