Why Does an HVAC System Require Maintenance?
Your HVAC works pretty much all day, everyday– but it’s out of sight, out of mind sometimes with certain aspects of home care. That said, a neglected HVAC system is going to work less efficiently, be more likely to break down, and likely won’t last as many years as one that is regularly serviced.
The reason for an HVAC tune-up is to ensure your furnace and AC run smoothly and efficiently all year long. The potential benefits include:
1. Reduced energy costs
2. Less need for costly repairs
3. And a longer operating life for the system
This is a good investment to make each year to ensure your system is working as it should. It’s recommended that you have your air conditioning unit inspected and serviced each spring, and your furnace serviced every fall. That way each HVAC system is prepped and ready for the upcoming season of either heating or cooling, and you can rest assured that your systems will work properly during the coldest and hottest months of the year.
What Does an HVAC Tune-up Include?
When you work with our expert technicians at Keith Heating & Air for your HVAC tune-up, you can expect a thorough visual check and cleaning of your system. If your air conditioner or furnace needs repairs, the tech will explain that to you, and go over cost and any other information you may need.
