Why Is HVAC Maintenance So Important?
May 17, 2019
After all the lectures you hear from contractors, you may still be asking: Why is HVAC maintenance so important? Well, here’s what the OnTime Service team has to say on the matter:
As your home’s work horse, your HVAC system keeps you warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Whether it’s miserably hot or bitterly cold, your HVAC system works 24/7 to keep you comfortable year-round. That being said, your HVAC system requires routine maintenance to continue functioning efficiently.
So, Why Is HVAC Maintenance So Important?
You may appreciate the importance of keeping your indoor climate comfortable, but why is HVAC maintenance so important, you ask?
Well, for starters, your heating and cooling system is one of the most impressive inventions ever created. Since it’s the most expensive appliance in your home and the hardest working, there’s a lot of machinery and moving parts. To continue running efficiently, these parts require regular maintenance. Moreover, you can make your HVAC system last longer by keeping up with the necessary routine maintenance. This is why it’s wise to schedule two annual maintenance visits with a licensed HVAC professional ahead of time.
With all the complex parts that make up your HVAC system, routine maintenance is vital. If you are wondering how much maintenance is required for your HVAC system to run smoothly, the OnTime Service team has some thoughts:
How much maintenance does our HVAC system need?
Our HVAC pros suggest twice a year. In fact, for our club members, we service the heating and cooling system two times a year. Also, our club members benefit from two other visits; One for a routine plumbing inspection and the other for an electrical safety inspection.
Because changes in temperature will affect how you use your HVAC system, routine maintenance between seasons is important. With a twice annual service visit from an OnTime licensed HVAC professional, you can ensure HVAC efficiency, year-round. Furthermore, if it’s time for a replacement, you’ll be glad to learn about it before extreme weather hits!
To stay ahead of seasonal changes, sign up for a home maintenance plan to keep all your major household systems and appliances (HVAC, plumbing, and electrical) working for you and your family year-round.
If Your HVAC System Is on Its Last Leg
While professional inspections ensure continued efficiency, they also keep you abreast of any HVAC replacements in your future. In fact, routine maintenance visits provide a licensed HVAC professional the opportunity to recommend replacements before the situation becomes dire.
If a new system is needed, OnTime Service suggests one rated at 18 to 20 SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio.) In fact, those 18 to 20 SEER units our team installs are very efficient and will save you a lot of money on heating and cooling.
With warm weather just around the corner, now is the perfect time to schedule a routine maintenance visit from an OnTime Service expert to make sure your cooling system is summertime ready.
