A Reminder on the Importance of HVAC Maintenance

Posted: June 24, 2019

You might be tempted to skip HVAC maintenance this year – after all, your cooling equipment and heating equipment worked just fine last year, didn’t it?

The problem with thinking that way is that it doesn’t take into account one key thing: the fact that, like all home comfort equipment, your HVAC system loses efficiency –about five percent a year, on average – without professional maintenance.

That means that when you invest in an HVAC service call, it will just about pay for itself in energy savings alone.

But there are more reasons than energy savings to choose annual HVAC maintenance: if you get your cooling and heating tune-up now you can also save you money by catching minor issues before they turn into potentially costly HVAC repairs, and by keeping your equipment running more reliably once the hot, sticky weather arrives later this month.

Maintaining your HVAC equipment will also help to improve air quality in your home: when combined with regular air filter swap-outs, a properly serviced HVAC system will keep air flowing and humidity in check, which reduces the likelihood of problems with indoor air pollutants ranging from pet dander to mold and other allergens.

The bottom line

Your cooling and heating equipment works hard to keep your family comfortable; the cost of that hard work is wear and tear – perhaps not enough to notice right away, but often enough to start your equipment down the path to long-term problems. During routine maintenance, our expert technicians thoroughly examine your equipment to root out problems and make sure it’s ready for the strain of day-to-day use over the course of a hot Catskills summer.

Remember: your home HVAC equipment is an investment that needs protection. A tune-up is a must-have for any HVAC system – schedule yours today!
