As an HVAC company that has been in business for over two decades, we know how vital it is for both a heating and air conditioning unit to receive at least one checkup a year. If possible, we even suggest our customers do them semi-annually as well.
However, why is scheduling an annual checkup important?
For those of you who don’t know, when most technicians perform a checkup, they also perform preventive maintenance. And, whether or not this is done, it can directly affect how well your unit functions and how long it will be until you have to have a new unit installed.
An annual checkup can mean lower energy bills.
You might think that just because your heating unit is having no trouble heating your home that everything is in working order. But, have you taken a close look at your energy bills lately? While the heating unit appears to be working well, it may be using more energy than it did immediately after it was installed. If you want to help guarantee that you don’t find yourself with higher energy bills throughout the winter months, schedule a checkup.
Your unit will likely require fewer repairs by a heating and air conditioning contractor.
Is it often that you hear unusual sounds or smell unsettling odors from your heating vents? Well, some components of your heating unit might need cleaning. For example, those who forget to replace or check their heating unit’s air filter may find themselves with unclean air flowing throughout their home. So, one of the best benefits of giving your unit an annual checkup is that the technician will ensure all of its components are clean and free of debris, and thus the air in your home is also clean.
Want your heating unit to last a long time? Schedule that checkup now!
In the end, if you want to get as many years out of your heating unit as possible, an annual checkup is VITAL. Heating and air conditioning units will only last as long as you are willing to take care of them, just like they help to take care of you. Plus, anything you can do to better your health and reduce you energy bills is usually a great investment!
