When was the last time you had your heating and air conditioning system inspected? If you're lucky enough to have gone a while without issues, then having it inspected might not be on your list of things to do. However, regular inspections will keep your system in top working order and could save you money in the long run, because you'll be in a better position to avoid unnecessary breakdowns.
Inspect Heating and Air Conditioning Systems at Least Once a Year
An annual inspection is necessary to maintain your HVAC system's efficiency and safety. When you don't stay on top of inspections, you could face:
- The untimely crash of your system.
- A negative impact on your family's health due to poor circulation and ventilation.
- Spending thousands of dollars on a new system that could be avoided with proper maintenance of your current system.
- Discomfort from the loss of heating in the winter or cooling in the summer.
It goes without saying that if your system is giving you obvious problems, such as temperature irregularities, making noises, and so on, it's a sign you need to call a trusted HVAC repair company right way. Otherwise, be sure to keep up with your annual servicing to avoid the unpleasant possibilities listed above. If you have an older system, you might even consider getting it inspected twice a year.
Heating and Air Conditioning Neglect Can Lead to an Increase in Utility Bills
Even the most efficient heating and cooling system can cost you money if you don't get it checked on a regular basis. Dirty or clogged filters, non-lubricated motors, dirty flues, and leaks can reduce your unit's efficiency by 15 to 25 percent. That means you could be throwing money out the window when you pay your utility bills.
Maintenance might seem like a hassle, but it's well worth the time and effort to contact a reputable contractor to tune up your heating and air conditioning system before you are facing inconvenient and costly repairs.
