Why schedule HVAC preventative maintenance?
The purpose of having preventative maintenance being performed on your hvac system in the spring is to get your air conditioner ready for warmer weather. After months of not being used while your heater does its job, your air conditioner needs an inspection to ensure it runs properly when it’s time to start it up again. This prevents you from needing emergency repairs when the heat is on the rise.
What are the benefits?
On top of preventing costly repairs, spring HVAC preventative maintenance also improves your system’s efficiency (lowering your energy bills each month), protects your system warranty, and extends the life of your system so you won’t need a replacement for years to come. Spring HVAC preventative maintenance also includes professional cleaning to improve your indoor air quality.
