Do You Really Need Regular HVAC Maintenance for Your System?

Regular HVAC maintenance is always recommended, but is it really necessary? One way to find out is to wait until you’re without heating or cooling due to an unexpected system breakdown caused by a lack of proper maintenance. That’s the hard way. Annual maintenance on both the furnace and the air conditioner by a certified HVAC technician is the preferred option to ensure system reliability, as well as home comfort and safety.

Here are a few reasons why regular HVAC maintenance is good for you, your budget, and your heating and cooling components.

  • Optimum comfort. The BTU capacity of a furnace and AC are calculated to accommodate the dimensions and specific characteristics of your house. This vital calculation is based on the assumption that heating and cooling components are regularly maintained by a qualified professional. If maintenance is neglected, HVAC units may not perform up to specifications and fail to maintain temperatures to keep the house comfortable.
  • Lower operating costs. HVAC components come with official energy-efficiency ratings that are required by the federal government. The monthly costs of operating furnace and AC are directly related to energy efficiency, which in turn relies on regular professional maintenance. Higher monthly HVAC costs are often the first sign of neglected maintenance, which is why regular HVAC maintenance can save you money.
  • Reliability matters. An in-depth inspection provides an experienced, professional technician the opportunity to detect any incipient issues that may turn into major malfunction in the future. Preventing breakdowns with regular maintenance is less expensive and troublesome than putting up with an unexpected loss of heating and cooling — no doubt at the worst possible time.
  • Safety is critical. The gas-fired furnaces that make up the majority of residential heating systems here in central Indiana incorporate a high-temperature burner and produce hazardous carbon monoxide gas as a byproduct of the heating process. Regularly inspecting and properly maintaining furnace components — including exterior venting and smoke and carbon monoxide alarms — is vital to the safety of occupants in the home.

If you haven’t already, schedule regular HVAC maintenance for your heating system by a certified Paitson Bros. technician. We’ve been keeping Terre Haute residents comfortable and safe since 1922.
