Things That Should Be Covered with Your Home HVAC Checkup

You rely on your HVAC system for home comfort throughout the year. The last thing you want is for the air conditioner to shut down on a hot summer day or the heater to stop working on a cold winter night. The smartest approach to stop your heating and cooling system from malfunctioning is to set up a regular HVAC maintenance call with Stallion Heating and Air Conditioning 

Why Does My HVAC System Have to Have Maintenance? 

Your HVAC system exists behind ceilings and floors, so it’s easy to forget about it. However, an ignored system is likely to perform less efficiently, malfunction more frequently, and come to the end of its working life prematurely. 

The point of an HVAC tune-up is to keep your furnace performing smoothly all year. 

In the process, you could possibly: 

  • Reduce your utility costs 
  • Experience a smaller number of expensive repairs 
  • Add years to your system’s life

Besides that, it’s required by manufacturers to keep your warranty in good standing. Due to these benefits, the fee of protecting your HVAC system is an investment that pays for itself. 

It’s best to schedule maintenance annually for each HVAC system. This means booking an appointment for your AC every spring and having your furnace inspected and cleaned every fall. With this timing, you prepare the right system to work at its peak in the approaching cooling or heating season.
