As trusted Bay Area heat and air professionals, we know that many homeowners end up replacing their home comfort system earlier than is really necessary. Unfortunately, this is often due to failure to properly maintain your equipment. While any HVAC company will recommend that homeowners have their systems “tuned up” through preventive maintenance at least once per year, many homeowners simply don’t do it.
If you’re one of the many who believe you don’t have to have your heating and cooling system maintained prior to the heating or cooling season because your equipment is under warranty, you may be in for a big (and unpleasant) surprise when your system fails to function properly. Just as with cars that are not properly maintained, the manufacturer may just determine that any necessary repairs or replacement are not covered by the warranty, because you failed to take care of your system properly. Proper maintenance helps extend the life of your heating and cooling system, making it more efficient and increasing your family’s comfort. When you neglect to take care of this big investment, it can be a costly lesson, learned the hard way!
If you are one of the many people who take a “reactive” approach instead of a “proactive” approach to problems, you probably think that as long as it’s not broken, there is no reason to worry. Wait until something goes wrong, and then address the problem. This approach can end up costing you a bundle. Ultimately, preventive maintenance can keep your home comfort system running smoothly for years, helping you avoid unnecessary repair or replacement costs.
