Temperatures are dropping along with the leaves, and many homeowners are getting ready for cold winter weather. October is typically when homeowners turn on their furnaces for the first time to ward off the chilly fall evenings. Is your HVAC system ready for the winter?
Your HVAC system is the primary factor in regulating your family’s comfort. Regular fall and spring tune-ups for your HVAC equipment can not only alert you to potential problems in advance, but can also ensure that your system is working at peak efficiency and is properly distributing conditioned air throughout the home. The result: your family is kept warm and comfortable no matter how chilly it gets outside.
Your home is generally your most significant financial asset, and HVAC systems can cost $10,000 or more to replace. It makes good financial sense to maintain your systems with bi-annual tune-ups, ensuring that you’re protecting your long-term investment and that this expensive system has a maximum life of service for your home. Perhaps more importantly, HVAC systems are the biggest single energy consumers in your home, accounting for up to 50% of your total energy expenditures. Aside from the potential long-term costs of replacing a poorly maintained system, inefficient systems also cost you more each month to run. The smart homeowner monitors energy usage on a monthly basis to compare with previous years. It’s not uncommon for our customers to report 10-15% savings on their gas or electricity bills after having an HVAC tune-up.
Whether you’re getting ready to book your regular fall maintenance or you’re just realizing now that it’s long overdue, use the season’s transition as a reminder to have your system serviced.
