Routine maintenance of your HVAC system is one of the most effective ways to keep energy costs low throughout the year and avoid costly emergency repairs.
Typically, you should have your system serviced twice a year (once for air conditioning and once for heat). However, if you live in an extreme climate or have an older home with an aging HVAC system, consider a more frequent service schedule.
It’s important to plan ahead.
Rather than waiting until your situation becomes an emergency during extreme hot or cold seasons when technicians are dealing with a high volume of calls, schedule service on your A/C in the spring and your heating system in the fall. Routine servicing is not only cost-effective; it's an important safety measure and environmentally friendly.
Prolong the lifespan of your system by keeping it maintained annually by an experienced service technician. Parts naturally wear down over time, and it's critical to keep an eye on your system's efficiency. A regularly scheduled maintenance visit does just that! It includes cleaning and replacing filters, cleaning coils and pumps, and checking the thermostat and ductwork.
One other important piece of advice: Remember to regularly change your air filters between service visits and pay attention to your home's air quality. If you live with pets, small children, or anyone who suffers from allergies or asthma, you may want to schedule more frequent service visits to keep your system clean and functioning at peak performance.
