HVAC Check-Up? Now is the Time

As a home owner, one of the things we tend to overlook is basic maintenance of our HVAC/ Comfort System. Our heating and cooling systems usually get no attention until the point in time they stop working properly. If you’ve never had a routine maintenance check on your HVAC system, or, it’s been more than a couple of years, now is the perfect time.

Why Now?

Why now? During this particular time of year, your AC system most likely isn’t being used 100% of the time. The temperature outside is milder and it’s not cool enough yet to flip the switch on your heating system. We are in a mid-season time of year where if your comfort system stopped working, it wouldn’t be unbearably uncomfortable if your system began to have problems.

 

A month from now? Who knows. The temperature might fall into the 30’s or 40’s at night and you willwant your heating system to perform correctly when you turn it on for the first time. So, now is the perfect time to have your home’s HVAC system serviced to insure it will work properly when you need it most.

Your Largest Investment

Your home’s HVAC system is most likely the largest single investment you have in your home, outside of the structure it’s self. Think of HVAC preventive maintenence as you would preventive maintenence on your personal vehicle: if you neglect changing the oil in your car, it will cost you a substantial amount later to repair the damage.

Routine maintenence on your home’s HVAC system may find little things that aren’t too costly that you can repair now instead of having to install a complete new system later.
