Residential HVAC Repair & Maintenance

The Importance of Regular Maintenance:

Servicing your heating, ventilation and air conditioning system (HVAC) on a regular basis ensures that your systems run at peak efficiency and extends the life of your equipment. Regular maintenance has the added benefit of saving you time, money and reduces stress by discovering potential issues before they become large expensive repairs. We recommend that you get your systems professionally checked at least once a year, however, having them checked twice a year before seasonal changes or after inclement weather helps ensure the top performance of your HVAC systems. calendar on top of a table

There are several benefits of regular HVAC maintenance:

Increased Dependability: Nothing is worse than approaching the hottest or coldest day of the year and discovering your systems have broken down. With annual maintenance, your systems are less likely to break down at the times you need them the most and you can avoid surprising and costly repairs.

Discover Potential Problems: Identifying small issues before they become larger problems can help avoid disaster. The cost of annual maintenance will save you in future repairs. It’s important to schedule a tune-up as soon as you notice anything odd or unusual.

Maximum Efficiency: Not all problems are obvious or urgent. Without regular upkeep, your systems may run without any apparent problem but can be very costly when it comes to your energy bill. Getting regular professional maintenance will prevent your systems from being overworked and keep them running at top performance. Additionally, the less energy your HVAC system uses the safer it is for the environment.

Prolonged Equipment Life-Span: Similar to your vehicle, your HVAC systems require regular upkeep. When one problem goes unnoticed or ignored, greater issues will appear, leading to system break-down. Staying proactive about maintenance will add years to the lifespan of your system.

Maintains Safe and Healthy Operation: Potential risks of neglecting regular maintenance can include carbon monoxide leaks and fire hazards in your home. The safety of your home and family greatly outweighs the cost of professional maintenance.  

Reduced Chance of Break-Down: Annual maintenance will assist in drastically reducing the chance of a break-down which usually happens at night or on weekends when repair rates are higher.
