Ask the Heating maintenance expert:
Unfortunately, we have to side with your neighbor. Would you buy a new car and defer an oil change for the first five years because it is “new”? Heating systems, regardless of how old or new, call for annual maintenance. Here are four reasons to budget for preventative HVAC maintenance each year:
When components of the heating system are improperly attached it can hinder the efficiency of your comfort system, this means higher utility bills. Loose parts can also cause the heater to malfunction. With preventative HVAC maintenance, homeowners save the time and money of premature parts’ replacements.
With any machinery in perpetual use, ridding all the parts of corrosive materials boosts its energy efficiency by 10 percent. Additionally, a well maintained heating system ensures good indoor air quality.
With preventative HVAC maintenance, homeowners make fewer heating repair calls and equipment replacements. At the time of the heating check up, a good heating service contractor will tweak the unit to improve its efficiency.
Regardless of the age of a Collinsville home’s comfort system, preventative maintenance also assures safety. From combustion to carbon monoxide poisoning, the home’s heating system should have an annual checkup.
