Your Home HVAC Checkup Should Include These Steps

You rely on your HVAC system for home comfort throughout the year. The last thing you want is for the AC to shut down on a searing summer day or the heat to stop working on a freezing winter night. The smartest way to keep your heating and cooling system from shutting down is to plan an annual HVAC tune-up with Comfort Masters Service Experts

Why Does My HVAC System Need Tune-Ups?

Your HVAC system exists behind ceilings and floors, so it’s not hard to forget about it. However, an ignored system is probably going to run less efficiently, stop working more regularly, and reach the end of its working life prematurely.

The purpose of an HVAC tune-up is to keep your furnace and air conditioner functioning properly all season long.

In the process, you could potentially:

  • Decrease your heating and cooling costs
  • Face less expensive repairs
  • Add years to your system’s life

Not to mention, it’s required by manufacturers to keep your warranty valid. Thanks to these benefits, the cost of tuning up your HVAC system is an investment that pays for itself.

It’s recommended to plan for maintenance annually for each HVAC system. This means setting an appointment for your air conditioning every spring and having your furnace inspected and cleaned every fall. With this timing, you ready the proper system to run at its peak in the upcoming cooling or heating season.
