Your Home HVAC Checkup Should Cover These Things

You count on your HVAC system for home comfort throughout the year. The last thing you want is for the air conditioning to shut down on a hot summer day or the heating to malfunction on a bitter winter night. The best method to stop your heating and cooling system from malfunctioning is to set up a regular HVAC inspection with Roland J. Down Service Experts

Why Does My HVAC System Require Maintenance?

Your HVAC system hides behind ceilings and floors, so it’s simple to forget about it. However, a mistreated system is probably going to work less efficiently, malfunction more regularly, and reach the end of its working life prematurely.

The reason for an HVAC tune-up is to keep your furnace and air conditioner working smoothly all year.

In the process, you may potentially:

  • Reduce your utility expenses
  • Experience fewer pricey repairs
  • Add years to your system’s life

Not to mention, it’s required by manufacturers to keep your warranty active. As a result of these benefits, the fee of tuning up your HVAC system is an investment that pays for itself.

It’s best to schedule maintenance yearly for each HVAC system. This means setting an appointment for your cooling every spring and having your furnace inspected and cleaned every fall. With this timing, you prep the correct system to perform at its strongest in the coming cooling or heating season.
