Things That Should Be Covered with Your Home HVAC Maintenance

You depend on your HVAC system for home comfort in every season. The last thing you want is for the air conditioner to power down on a scorching summer day or the heater to malfunction on a cold winter night. The smartest approach to prevent your heating and cooling system from breaking is to plan an annual HVAC maintenance call with Fras-Air/General Service Experts

Why Does My HVAC System Have to Have Tune-Ups?

Your HVAC system hides behind ceilings and floors, so it’s not hard to forget about it. However, a neglected system is likely to work less efficiently, stop working more regularly, and come to the end of its life cycle more quickly.

The purpose of an HVAC tune-up is to keep your furnace and air conditioner working smoothly all season long.

In the process, you might potentially:

  • Reduce your heating and cooling expenses
  • Experience fewer expensive repairs
  • Add years to your system’s life

Not to mention, it’s required by manufacturers to keep your warranty valid. 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 once a year for each HVAC system. This means setting an appointment for your AC every spring and having your furnace inspected and cleaned every fall. With this timing, you prep the right system to perform at its best in the coming cooling or heating season.
