Your heating and cooling equipment accounts for approximately half of your household energy costs throughout the year.
Thus, the heavy activity is bound to lead to a lot of wear and tear, which is why it is important to have your equipment inspected regularly.
It is likely that you understand the importance of having annual or bi-annual maintenance for your HVAC system.
The correct maintenance should stop any problematic situations before they become a larger issue, and should also ensure energy efficiency.
What is an HVAC maintenance plan?
It can be easy to forget about annual service of your heating and ventilation equipment. Seasonal heating or cooling activity can increase without your awareness, and it is easy to disregard the need for system services. You may, however, want to consider the face that skipping your pre-season tuning can take away important system benefits, including:
- Improved energy efficiency levels
- Lower utility costs
- Better home comfort control
- Powerful circulation of air
- Early identification of worn down or broken components
- Reduction in seasonal repair needs
- Extension of system life
- Access to the latest information about trends in HVAC technology
- Assistance with planning the eventual replacement
- Help with home performance and indoor air quality inquiries
- Saving money on repairs, equipment and additional services
Air conditioning and heat pump maintenance
Service of your cooling equipment should be handled in the spring so that you are prepared for the hot and humid summer months. Your AC or heat pump will be in charge of managing your home’s humidity levels as well as cooling your indoor environment. Failure to service your system could leave you dealing with sweltering conditions but programmed HVAC maintenance plans will ensure that you will be contacted so that the need doesn’t slip your mind.
Having a tune-up before placing your furnace in operation for the heating season is a smart investment in your family’s safety.
Cleaning and inspecting your equipment allows your technician to pinpoint problems that could lead to excessive carbon monoxide in your home.
