One of the best things Lubbock area homeowners can do to keep their heating and cooling units healthy is to have regular HVAC preventive maintenance performed by a professional technician. This should be done twice a year, once before the heating season and once before the cooling season. A car that’s well-oiled and serviced runs better, so there’s no surprise that your heater and a/c will do their job more efficiently when they’re given the same level of attention. During preventive maintenance, a technician will inspect and evaluate your unit and make any needed adjustments and repairs. There are many benefits to having this done, and we’ve listed four of the best ones below.
Top 4 benefits of HVAC preventive maintenance
  • 1. Save Energy. A lot can happen to your heating and cooling units over time that prevents them from performing efficiently. When a technician inspects your system, he or she will ensure that they are running as smoothly and efficiently as possible, which will cut down on the amount of energy used through out your systems lifespan.
  • 2. Avoid Unnecessary Repairs. When you have HVAC preventive maintenance twice a year, you can stop potential problems before they start. This will minimize the amount of times a technician comes to your home to make repairs which in turn saves you lots of money and time.
  • 3. Keep your Home Safe. If you have a gas furnace like many homeowners in the Lubbock area, there is a chance that CO Carbon Monoxide can leak into your home. When performing preventive maintenance, a technician can identify safety risks such as a cracked heat exchanger and fix any problems before they pose a threat to your family.
  • 4. Extend the Life of your Units. One of the best benefits of HVAC preventive maintenance is that it will extend the life of your heating and cooling systems. Just like oil changes and tune-ups keep your car in good shape, preventive maintenance will keep your heating and cooling units healthy for years to come.
