For as long as they’ve been around, HVAC systems have made it so a home can truly become a sanctuary. The comfort they provide is something many people today rely on, yet scheduling an annual service appointment is often overlooked. When your system goes kaput in the middle of extreme temperatures, that’s when you really wish you had just had it inspected ahead of time. Doing so will not only ensure your home feels cozy year-round, but will also make your system operate more efficiently, thus saving you money on your monthly utility bills.
Benefits of an annual service appointment
There are many advantages associated with keeping your heating and air conditioning systems in proper working order. Among the benefits you will experience are:
- The more efficient your system is, the greater your carbon footprint is reduced.
- A safer, more reliable system.
- A smoother running system that helps you save on your energy bills.
- Avoiding a system breakdown in the middle of extreme weather.
- The parts of the system will stay in better working order, lessening the wear and tear or the need to replace them early.
What the pros check for
According to the U.S. Environmental Agency, when an expert comes out to inspect your system, he will typically look for and take care of several things. The moving parts will be lubricated to help avoid friction and reduce the amount of energy required for it to function. He will make sure all your controls are operating properly and will tighten all of the connections. The settings for your thermostat will also be evaluated to ensure they are set to temperatures you prefer when home, but are in energy savings mode when you are normally gone. Your condensation drain is generally checked as well to make sure it is not clogged.
