Maintaining your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems are essential to keep them operating properly, dependably and efficiently.
Think of preventative HVAC maintenance in the same way as preventative maintenance (PM) for your car: if you don't change the engine oil and replace belts and filters regularly, the engine will lock up and the vehicle won’t operate. The same holds true, in a sense, for HVAC systems.
HVAC system maintenance isn’t expensive compared to what you might spend if your system degrades (and ultimately fails).
By tracking different system indicators, we can pick up on many emerging problems before they reach a crisis situation.
Properly maintained HVAC systems typically last 2-3 times longer than systems not properly maintained and replacement costs far out way preventative maintenance costs.
Maintaining your HVAC systems will help reduce operation costs and energy consumption by allowing your equipment to operate under minimal stress.
Get your AC and heating systems on a routine service plan and maintain your equipment properly as they were designed to be.
I recommend quarterly for commercial applications and bi-annual for residential properties.
