Steps That Should Come with Your Home HVAC Maintenance

You count on your HVAC system for home comfort all year round. The last thing you want is for the air conditioner to shut down on a searing summer day or the heater to stop working on a freezing winter night. The smartest approach to keep your heating and cooling system from failing is to arrange for a regular HVAC maintenance call with Strand Brothers Service Experts

Why Does My HVAC System Require Tune-Ups?

Your HVAC system hides behind ceilings and floors, so it’s not hard to forget about it. However, a mistreated system is likely to run less efficiently, malfunction more frequently, and come to the end of its life cycle prematurely.

The reason for an HVAC tune-up is to keep your furnace and air conditioner running well throughout the year.

In the process, you can possibly:

  • Decrease your utility bills
  • Face fewer expensive repairs
  • Add years to your system’s life

Not to mention, it’s required by manufacturers to keep your warranty in good standing. Due to these benefits, the price of protecting your HVAC system is an investment that pays for itself.

It’s best to plan for maintenance annually for each HVAC system. This means requesting an appointment for your air conditioning every spring and having your furnace inspected and cleaned every fall. With this timing, you prepare the proper system to run at its best in the upcoming cooling or heating season.
