Is preventative HVAC maintenance a good investment?

fall-at-the-beachFall is just around the corner, which means it’s almost time to turn on your home’s heating system. But before you crank up the heat, it’s a good idea to call in a professional for a HVAC maintenance check-up because there’s nothing worse than waking up in the middle of the night to a cold house. For fall, a precision tune-up of your HVAC unit is the recommended service, according to Cool Connections, Inc. of Jacksonville Florida.

Everybody needs to have that done every year. Annual maintenance is important for spotting potential health and safety issues. HVAC maintenance by a professional also helps keep your warranty on your unit valid. Most manufacturers require maintenance to keep the equipment under warranty. Cleaning your HVAC system will also help it run at the efficiency it was intended to run. If you buy a higher efficiency HVAC unit and you don’t maintain it, the efficiency will drop. It will cost you more money on electric bills that you wouldn’t have to pay if you kept it maintained.

Additionally, HVAC units that have proper maintenance performed are much less likely to need emergency repair. It’s much cheaper in the long run to have annual maintenance done than to have emergency repairs performed. Those failures are never convenient for the homeowner. Homeowners should also remember to change their filter every month, without fail. When you don’t change the filter you’re setting yourself up for needing emergency service due to damage to the HVAC unit through a clogged filter.
