Your Home HVAC Maintenance Should Include These Things

You rely on your HVAC system for home comfort all year round. The last thing you want is for the AC to shut down on a hot summer day or the heating to stop working on a cold winter night. The ideal approach to keep your heating and cooling system from failing is to schedule a yearly HVAC inspection with BW/Cook Service Experts

Why Does My HVAC System Require Checkups?

Your HVAC system hides behind ceilings and floors, so it’s not hard to forget about it. However, an ignored system is likely to perform less efficiently, break down more frequently, and come to the end of its life span sooner.

The point of an HVAC tune-up is to keep your furnace and air conditioner running smoothly all season long.

In the process, you could potentially:

  • Lower your utility bills
  • Face fewer costly repairs
  • Add years to your system’s life

Not to mention, it’s required by manufacturers to keep your warranty valid. Due to these benefits, the fee of tuning up your HVAC system is an investment that pays for itself.

It’s recommended to arrange maintenance yearly for each HVAC system. This means setting an appointment for your air conditioner every spring and having your furnace inspected and cleaned every fall. With this timing, you ready the right system to run at its peak in the upcoming cooling or heating season.
