One of the most common questions we get asked is, “Do I really need to service my HVAC system so often?” While we understand that maintenance can feel unnecessary, it’s effective at keeping your AC running smoothly. If you skip your service, you’ll find that your AC costs more to run and that you have more issues that need repair, causing electricity bills to creep up and costly emergency repairs.
There are several reasons we recommend regular servicing. Firstly, some parts of your heating and air conditioning unit wear down faster than others. As they stop working, they put more pressure on other parts of the HVAC system, which causes even more wear and tear.
Your unit will become less efficient, and you’ll have to spend more money to achieve the same cooling or heating. By reducing the wear and tear on a specific part, you can extend the lifespan of your HVAC unit and ensure it runs at peak efficiency for longer.
Regular maintenance is also an excellent time for your HVAC technician to diagnose potential issues. Our service schedule includes an inspection to monitor how well your HVAC system runs. The sooner we diagnose a potential issue, the better. Preventative maintenance ensures that minor problems don’t turn into expensive, time-consuming concerns.
Finally, most heating and air conditioning manufacturers have a clause in their warranty stating that you have to do regular maintenance. Failing to do so can void your warranty, which can be disastrous if your air conditioning system has a manufacturer’s fault.
