Why Regular HVAC Maintenance Is So Important

We’re now in late summer, and even though there are still a few months left before it’s time to turn on our homes’ heating systems, now is as good a time as any to discuss regular HVAC maintenance. Not just maintenance for the heating system, but also for the air conditioning system. When you sign up for a regular maintenance program from professionals (such as our Comfort Club), you’re making an investment in your comfort throughout the year, year after year—not just for a single season.

The Reasons HVAC Maintenance Is Crucial

It’s too easy to dismiss maintenance as simply another chore to schedule during the year. But HVAC maintenance isn’t an “additional” service—it’s a mandatory one. In fact, missing maintenance can void the warranty on many heaters and air conditioners. Aside from keeping the warranty current, there are other great reasons to continue with spring and fall maintenance inspections and tune-ups:

  • Extended equipment life: Your air conditioner and heater are not likely to live up to their manufacturer’s estimated service life unless they have regular tune-ups. Make sure that your HVAC system gives you the most life out or your initial investment in it.
  • Reduced repair needs: Did you know that 85% of the repairs an HVAC system typically needs are avoidable thanks to regular tune-ups? Imagine how much you won’t have to spend on repairs because of keeping up with maintenance.
  • Lower energy costs: The price to keep a home comfortable around the year can be steep. Maintenance will prevent the costs from climbing higher due to the effects of wear and tear.
  • Peace of mind: There’s far less chance of your HVAC system abruptly breaking down on you during the year if it’s well-maintained. Peace of mind is probably the best benefit of all.
