It’s that wonderful time of year again – time for spring cleaning! Be sure that you don’t forget your heating and cooling system, which is one of the most important systems in your home. After your cooling system has been resting all winter, it is important to make sure it is prepared for the upcoming summer. If your cooling system has not had an inspection in the past year, it is time to have a spring maintenance visit scheduled.
Why is having spring maintenance performed so important? Experts say that having your system inspected annually will benefit it in several ways. The first is that regular maintenance can lower your energy bills. A system that has dirt and debris build up, in addition to other possible problems, might be the reason you have higher electric bills. A system that is inspected and cleaned will be more likely to run at its peak efficiency. At the inspection, our service technician also will be able to find potential complications. These problems can be repaired before they become major, costly repairs.
Another benefit of having spring maintenance performed is that it may help prolong the lifespan of your system. We know that heating and cooling systems are major purchases. To keep your system running as long as possible, it will need annual maintenance. If the other reasons weren’t enough, most manufactures are requiring an annual service to keep the warranty valid. This proves how important manufactures think annual maintenance is. As the manufacturer Trane states, “Asking a professional to check your system will increase the life of the system, improve energy efficiency, reduce pollutants and save money.”
Here are a few other quotes regarding the importance of annual maintenance:
“Just as a tuneup for your car can improve your gas mileage, a yearly tuneup of your heating and cooling system can improve efficiency and comfort.” – EnergyStar
“Give your AC a tuneup. Running an inefficient AC system can result in high monthly bills.” –Duke Energy Progress
