If your end goal is to save more money on energy bills this year, then you should make it a priority to have annual HVAC service performed on your heating and cooling systems. Doing so will lock in their efficiency, which translates into energy savings each and every month.
Why is annual HVAC service so critical?
An annual service check generally includes a comprehensive, full-scale inspection of your heating and cooling systems. Inspecting components such as the combustion process, heat exchangers, and coils helps to keep wear and tear in check. Your technician will be able to spot small, fixable problems before they become large, costly problems.
In addition to inspection, your technician will thoroughly clean your furnace and A/C so that they operate as close to the efficiency to which they were originally designed. In fact, most manufacturers will not honor warranties if a system isn’t serviced, an indication of how important regular maintenance is from the perspective of the engineers who design such systems.
Finally, the service will consist of checking the overall operation of the systems, ensuring proper airflow, duct components, thermostat and controls, refrigerant and blower.
Other benefits from annual HVAC service
While annual HVAC service definitively supports efficiency, as a homeowner, you’ll reap several other benefits, including:
- Increased home comfort. When your system operates efficiently, you’ll get better results in the form of evenly distributed heated and cooled air throughout your home.
- Higher energy savings. If your furnace and A/C function at peak capacity, you’ll see that efficiency as saved dollars on your monthly utility bills.
- Improved indoor air quality. Particularly for your furnace, you can be assured of better indoor air quality when the combustion and venting of your system are inspected frequently.
