Your cooling and heating system is just like any other machine – parts and components can wear down, get dirty, and need to be replaced or adjusted. It takes regular checkups to catch these issues and solve them before they affect your system’s efficiency or damage it, reducing its longevity. Regular maintenance tune-ups will keep your HVAC system running smoothly and efficiently for years to come. Making an appointment for annual service plays an important role in maintaining your home.

During a check-up, a professional will examine your system, clean the coils and fans, and check that everything is working correctly and there are no safety issues. The thermostat calibration will be checked and adjusted if it’s not accurate. Electrical and moving parts will be checked for tightness, and the blower motor and other moving parts will be lubricated.

Annual check-ups also ensure that the system is running safely, and that no electric, combustion or air-quality issues could put your family or home in danger. This alone is a huge reason to schedule an appointment for annual service. Having a professional who’s properly trained in recognizing any safety issues and fixing them will allow you to feel safe and secure in your home.

Of course, with regular service to your system, you can also set your mind at ease knowing that everything is in good condition and not prone to breaking down, especially at the height of summer or winter weather extremes. A check-up spares you the unnecessary stress and discomfort of a broken system, and can save you money as well, as you can avoid the sudden expense of paying for expensive emergency repairs.

With such important benefits from annual maintenance, why wait any longer? Schedule your annual maintenance before we move into summer, and have it out of the way.
