This time of year many people are turning on their heaters for the first time this year. You can schedule your preseason HVAC maintenance for your heating system if you haven’t already scheduled it. Here are some reasons why you need to have a routine HVAC maintenance program.
Do You Want Your System To Run Like A fine-tuned Machine
You wouldn’t run you car without checking the oil and servicing the car when you need to and your HVAC system works the same way. The better care you take of your heating, ventilating and cooling system, the better it will run. You can expect to stay comfortable on hot or cold days and to experience trouble free operation when you take advantage of a bi-annually or annual routine HVAC maintenance Program.
Repairs Can Be Costly
Many people avoid routine HVAC maintenance to save money. What they don’t realize is that you can add between 3-5 years life to your heating and cooling system when you are up to date on preventative maintenance. Many manufacturers will void a warranty where the owner has failed to keep up with routine maintenance. Often costly repairs are more expensive then the routine HVAC maintenance that would have prevented them.
Efficient HVAC Systems Save Money
If your HVAC system isn’t running right, you can expect to spend more on your energy costs. Your HVAC system requires lubrication to run smoothly and prevent resistance that can increase the amount of energy you use and wear the system out sooner. New filters can also help.
Keep Your Family Safe
Routine maintenance can help you keep your family safe by fixing leaking systems. Carbon Monoxide is a silent killer in the home and you don’t want to find out your heating system is contaminating your air with gases that were never meant to leave your unit. Faulty electrical connections can also cause shorts, power outages and fires.
When to Schedule Routine HVAC Maintenance
Your HVAC company will set up automatic preseason HVAC maintenance so that your heating unit is up and running before it gets cold and your air conditioning is checked before it gets hot. You don’t want to put off having your system checked only to find it’s not working on the coldest or hottest day of the year and your HVAC company is swamped with calls.
