One thing I’ve noticed living in Middle Tennessee is that our springs and falls seem to be getting shorter. It seems every year we go right from air-conditioning weather into heating weather (and vice versa!) in the blink of an eye. It is easy to become complacent and “forget” to have your HVAC system’s regular maintenance until it’s too late. After all, when it’s still in the 80’s and 90% humidity, you’re not thinking about how your heat will perform! But here’s why you should resist that urge, and get your regular HVAC maintenance now:
- Prevention: When the cold weather hits, and you find you have a heating problem, you may be waiting longer for service… and have to endure more cold temps…because that’s when everyone else’s system is acting up, too. Get a jump on it now, before the cold hits, and prevent outages – and inconveniences later!
- Safety: If a light bulb is going to go out, it will often do so just as you turn it on. Your heat might be the same, and you could have a situation that is preventable. Damaged, broken or poorly vented heating equipment can lead to carbon monoxide poisoning or other safety hazards. Find out now before you first turn on your heat for the season!
- Value: Financial analysts and home professionals agree, getting your HVAC inspected at least annually is among the best values for the money. Not only will you be able to head-off large repair bills down the road, but your system will run more efficiently, saving you money every single day it’s in use! According to Fox News Network, it’s not only about safety, but catching a problem before it happens, because if your heat goes out on a Sunday evening, you’ll wind up paying more in emergency/after-hours rates. Angie’s List encourages you to think of your HVAC unit as an investment that you want to last as long as it can… the real value comes from not having to replace your HVAC system prematurely due to lack of proper maintenance.
- Warranty: The warranty on your heating and cooling system often contains language saying that unless it is serviced by a qualified professional, you could void the warranty.
