The Value of Regular Maintenance
What do you suppose would happen to your car if you never changed the oil? Or never checked the tires for wear? What would happen to your kitchen appliances or your washer and dryer or your household furniture, carpeting and even houseplants if you never cared for them on a regular basis? And, what an expensive mess you’d be in if you never bothered with your home’s exterior!
Like most people, you do take care of all these things. And, you’re probably at it constantly. Why? Because they’re valuable; you don’t want to lose them; and they’re right there in front of you all the time. You know when they need attention. But what about your heating and cooling system? You probably rarely see it and, even if you did, you wouldn’t know whether or not it needed attention! Of course, you’d know if it failed to provide heating and cooling, but without regular service, some pretty serious problems can develop in that equipment.
Did you know that a neglected furnace could emit carbon monoxide? Hundreds die every year from this deadly gas. Did you know that respiratory illnesses, allergies, viral infections and fatigue can be traced to neglected air conditioning and heating systems?
Regular service of your heating and air conditioning equipment can eliminate these dangers and provide you the comfort function for which they were designed. It can also save you thousands of dollars over the long haul in energy costs. Most systems are designed to last 10 years or more, however, a neglected system can fail in just a few years, but with regular service we can even extend the life of your system.
What if you could talk to an HVAC technician who who would trust to inspect every square inch of your heating and air conditioning equipment on a regularly scheduled basis? Someone who worked for a company whose sole purpose was to become as familiar with you and your particular HVAC systems as you are to the rest of the things you care for in your home?
