What month is it? How could so much of 2020 have gone by so quickly already?? For many of us here in the Shenandoah Valley, it seems like summer only just left, and yet we’re already into October. Despite what you may be trying to tell yourself, heating season is already here.
If you’ve been in denial about turning on your furnace or boiler, or switching your heat pump from the cooling setting to heating, then you’ve probably put off scheduling an HVAC maintenance visit as well. Here’s why you shouldn’t be ignoring such an important aspect of your HVAC performance, from the local heating and cooling system experts at Excel.
How You’ll Benefit from Regular HVAC Maintenance
Preventative maintenance visits come with a number of benefits for your home’s heating system.
Lower Energy Bills
Maintenance visits help ensure that your system is working as efficiently as possible, reducing energy waste and keeping your heating bills under control over the course of the entire winter.
Healthier Indoor Air
Carbon monoxide leaks from furnaces or boilers with cracks in the heat exchanger are odorless, colorless, and can be deadly if left untreated. Every maintenance visit from an Excel HVAC technician includes testing for gas leaks and carbon monoxide levels for a safer home and higher indoor air quality.
Fewer Expensive Repair Calls and Unexpected Breakdowns
Experienced, certified heating and cooling experts are trained to spot problems with your HVAC system before they become big, expensive issues. If you wait until your furnace, boiler, or heat pump breaks down, you’ll not only likely have to pay more to get your system working again, but you could also have to deal with the inconvenience of being without heat in your home in the middle of a cold snap! Annual maintenance helps give you more confidence that your heating system will be working all winter long.
Longer Equipment Lifespan
Have you ever looked around online to try to find out how long your heating system will last for? If so, you’ve likely discovered that: the answer varies greatly! That’s because how you use your heating system every year will have a lot to do with how many years of service you’ll be able to get out of it. If your system isn’t well maintained, it’s likely incurring additional wear and tear that can shave years off the longevity and life expectancy of your system. With regular maintenance, you’ll extend the life of your furnace, boiler, or heat pump.
