Just about every mechanical system requires regular maintenance. Your computer’s operating system needs to be updated periodically or it won’t work right, resulting in preventable delays and lost productivity on your end. Your vehicle needs regular oil changes and maintenance, otherwise the parts will wear out and require replacement.
Same thing with your own body. It must have quality food, water, rest and exercise to recharge its batteries. If you don’t take proper care of yourself, you could suffer from heart disease, obesity, depression, anxiety, Type II diabetes, cancer, and other chronic conditions.
Your HVAC system is no different. When is the last time it was serviced? If you don’t take proper care of it, all kinds of bad things can happen – it could be inefficient, it could break down, or stop working altogether because it was not serviced in a timely manner.
Since HVAC systems are for the most part out of sight, this happens a lot. People forget all about them until they need to heat or cool their homes and their unit won’t work properly, causing a great deal of discomfort.
Benefits of Regular Maintenance
Ideally, it’s best to schedule regular maintenance in the spring and fall before the summer and winter months when the outside temperatures are uncomfortable. This way, you know your system is fully maintained before its forced to work extra hard during the hot summer months and the frigid winter season.
