Many Eastman, Georgia, residents often wonder whether they need to bother servicing their HVAC unit. It’s easy to have the mentality of “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” Unfortunately, if you take that mindset, you could overlook issues that might be developing within your HVAC system that you may never know about until it’s too late. Preventive maintenance not only keeps your system working efficiently, it can also result in significant savings.
Your HVAC system is a big investment, and it does a lot of work for your home. In fact, for most homeowners, your system is running more often than your car. Just like you get regular oil changes on your vehicle, HVAC maintenance will make sure that everything is clean, intact, and running efficiently. Typical maintenance for your system includes cleaning the coils, checking electrical connections, removing any obstructions, and checking refrigerant charges.
Is it Worth It?
The bottom line is you need to protect your investment. While your unit can probably run without regular maintenance, you won’t be able to catch small issues before they turn into big problems. Your unit also probably won’t have the lifespan of a unit that is regularly serviced and won’t be as efficient. A technician will be able to catch an issue early so you have a sense of how your unit is running. That way, you won’t have to deal with it breaking down at the worst possible moment.
Preventative Maintenance Plans
There is no doubt that regular maintenance can prolong the life of your HVAC unit, but remembering to call regularly can be a hassle. Many HVAC companies offer maintenance plans for an affordable price and keep track of your maintenance needs. Having a maintenance plan ensures that you don’t put off maintenance or completely forget about it and your unit can enjoy a long, healthy life, and keep you comfortable.
