Three Key Benefits of an HVAC Tune-Up
Regularly maintaining your heating and AC system is not just a nice-to-have, it really is essential. And we’re not just saying that because we’re in the business. You’ll get the same advice from almost all HVAC experts, home organizations, and even Angie’s List, which says that “a yearly furnace inspection will prolong the life of your HVAC system and save on your energy bills.”
Even though many people schedule this type of service before winter hits, it’s fine to do a tune-up at any time of the year. And it’s also better for you to do it now rather than wait for the seasons to change, especially if it’s been a year or more since your unit has been serviced.
Here are three of the key benefits of getting your heating system inspected and tuned up:
- Lower utility bills – When your heating system is properly cleaned and all components are working as they should, it operates more efficiently and uses less electricity or gas.
- Extended life – Just as with your car or any other kind of machine, your HVAC unit is going to last longer and break down less when it’s properly taken care of on a regular basis. You’ll also save money in the long run on costly repairs.
- Safety and Health – When your system is inspected and regularly maintained, you’ll get the peace of mind in knowing that you’re doing all you can to protect your home and loved ones. With a gas unit, regular inspections can ensure there are no dangerous leaks, and when your system is clean, the air quality in your home will be healthier.
