Routine maintenance is a key factor in prolonging the life of your HVAC equipment. A well maintained system will also run more efficiently, allowing you to get the full benefit of your system, and save some money on your utility bills. When you first move into a new home, it is useful to create a routine maintenance schedule, to take care of all the necessary maintenance for your home’s appliances.
By scheduling your maintenance prior to the start of the summer cooling or winter heating season, you can take full advantage of the capacity of your HVAC system. You will also have an easier time getting an appointment that fits into your schedule.
Another advantage to taking care of routine maintenance early is that you are more likely to be able to take care of small problems before they become bigger problems. If there is a problem with your HVAC system, the technician can help you decide whether it is more cost efficient to repair, or replace your system.
When you first move into a home, you should set up a calendar with all your home’s maintenance tasks, so that you can easily track what appointments should be scheduled, or what other chores need to be done to make your home as energy efficient as possible. Just like a car, an HVAC system that is well maintained will be more efficient, and typically last longer.
