Why is Preventive Maintenance Important?

You may be asking yourself, “Why are regularly scheduled preventive maintenance inspections so important?” The answer is quite simple! Just like your vehicle, your HVAC system requires service and regular checkups to ensure maximum efficiency and avoid unnecessary breakdowns. Regular checkups will also prolong the life of your unit and keep it running at full efficiently. An efficiently running unit saves you money on your energy bills. Preventive Maintenance is typically conducted during the Spring & Fall time of year. This is something you typically would have done in the spring and in the fall each year. You should have your AC maintained in the spring before it gets hot to ensure a worry free summer. Then you would need maintenance on your furnace during your fall visit before the cold winter months.

You may be asking yourself what is typically done during these visits. During your spring visit for your AC an HVAC professional will check to ensure the unit is running properly by checking refrigerate levels, cleaning coils, and checking to ensure filters are clean. All of these things greatly impact the way your unit functions and you want to ensure your AC is running smoothly before the summer.
During the fall visit the technician will check numerous things involved with the furnace including but not limited to the heat exchanger, draft induced assembly, flame sensor, safety switches, and more. These things are very important and some could even be a safety concern. While there is more steps involved this is just a brief overview to give you an idea of what a technician during maintenance visits.
