It’s easy to ignore your HVAC system as long as it’s working and your home is comfortable. If you’re a believer that no news is good news, then an operational HVAC system showing no signs of problems translates to: Why go looking for one? Right? Actually, we’d say, no, wrong! Just because your system seems fine doesn’t mean it is okay. Manufacturers and industry professionals agree that yearly tune-ups are vitally important to your heating and cooling unit's long-term health because they catch problems before they become costly and disruptive.
There are many benefits associated with seasonal system maintenance and virtually no downsides. When you opt for preventative care in the form of a tune-up or maintenance plan, you are decreasing the chances your system will experience emergency breakdowns. This is great news for you because national averages show that emergency service calls are double and, in some cases, triple the costs of a regular service call. If you’ve never considered scheduling a tune-up for your HVAC system, stop missing out on the benefits and savings!
Here are several benefits of HVAC system care and tune-ups:
- Reduced Risk of System Breakdowns: After each winter, your heating system is sitting around unused during the summer, and all that time sitting idle can leave your system unprepared to operate at peak performance when you need it again. When your system is not working optimally, that means it’s overworking to heat or cool your home. When your heating system has to work harder to warm your home, it’s left open to breakdowns and system failures. By scheduling a seasonal tune-up for your heating system this winter, you can ensure that your heater is ready for the winter months ahead.
- Improved Indoor Air Quality: Your indoor air quality can impact the efficiency of your heating system. When your home's air is dirty, your system is filtering and treating air full of dust and particles. When that dust and dirt are in your system, it can harm its components. When you schedule a tune-up with a trained and licensed HVAC specialist, one of the first points on your service provider’s list will be to clean any dirt, dust, or debris from your system. Dust and dirt are the enemies of your heating and cooling unit. The particles get into your system and cause it to work less efficiently. Tune-ups ensure that your system is clean and working as efficiently as possible.
- Lower Energy Spending: You will realize savings by cleaning and ensuring your heating system is working correctly. Your HVAC system uses almost half of all the energy in your home, so when it’s not working properly, it costs you big bucks throughout the year. Allowing your system to remain dirty and unkempt means you are essentially wasting energy. As we mentioned earlier, tuning-up your system can yield greater efficiency and better operation. These system improvements mean your system will not work as hard or operate as long, which translates to energy savings!
- Extended System Lifespan: Your system is like any other piece of machinery or appliance; it’s upkeep and general care will dictate how long it lasts and works for you. If you operate your HVAC system long and hard, ignoring it until you need to use it again, then it’s likely you will not get the maximum years out of the system. Your heating and cooling systems represent a significant investment, so you want to ensure you protect it by scheduling seasonal tune-ups before heavy usage.
By choosing to schedule a tune-up before planned seasonal heavy usage, you can ensure that your HVAC unit is in the best condition to serve you for the upcoming year. The average system can last you up to 25 years, so you could be saving a good deal of money by investing in your unit's upkeep.
