What if we told you there was a way to make the most out of your HVAC system?
What if we added that it would save you money and energy in the long run, too?
If you don’t regularly have your HVAC system professionally serviced, then you never know when it will malfunction, turning your home into an unexpected hotbox or freezer.
Still, the average homeowner doesn’t get HVAC service nearly as often as they should. Keep reading to discover the primary reasons you need to have regular HVAC service!
1. Save Money
If you’re hesitant to pay for HVAC service, it’s probably because you don’t want to spend the extra money. But would you believe that not hiring a professional may be more expensive in the long run?
For example, a professional can fix problems that are keeping your HVAC from performing properly. After the fix, you’ll enjoy much lower energy bills throughout the year. And a little preventative maintenance can keep you from having to make a very costly repair in the near future.
Regular HVAC maintenance also helps to preserve the life of your system. Generally speaking, it’s far better to pay for regular HVAC service than buying a new HVAC system in an emergency situation!
2. Keep Your Family Safe
Most of the time, HVAC issues are a matter of you and your family being uncomfortable when you are too hot or too cold in your own home. But what if you were actually in danger?
Problems with your HVAC system could lead to carbon monoxide leaks. These leaks are colorless, odorless, and potentially deadly. Fortunately, an HVAC professional can help detect if there is a leak, and regular maintenance can keep a leak from happening in the first place.
3. Protect Your Warranty
If you have a newer HVAC system, you are likely protected by the warranty. Before you put too much faith in the warranty, though, you should go and check the fine print.
Most of the time, the warranty requires that you get regular HVAC maintenance such as an annual checkup of your system. If you neglect that maintenance, you may negate the warranty. But if you get your system regularly maintained, then you will have the protection of both your warranty and any preventative measures that your HVAC technician can take against future problems.
4. Better Air Quality
When it comes to heating and cooling your home, most homeowners only focus on the temperature. But have you ever stopped and wondered about the quality of the air?
It is possible that your HVAC is circulating dangerous pollutants throughout the air. And while not deadly like carbon monoxide, pollutants can cause or exacerbate a number of respiratory problems. In most cases, this results in someone getting sicker and sicker and not even knowing what has gone wrong!
Regular maintenance can definitely improve the overall air quality in your home. And HVAC professionals can also deal with other air quality issues, including bad smells and mold.
