Hiring a HVAC company to perform seasonal inspections of a heating and cooling system is the most cost efficient way to maintain a system’s longevity while not spending radical amounts of money.
The owner of a car would never drive the vehicle a hundred-thousand miles without changing the oil. Regarding a property’s home comfort systems, this logic stands true.
“Frequent seasonal maintenance is the most cost-efficient way to achieve optimal performance for all residential appliances, and this speaks best for the hard-working furnace or air conditioner units.” says Ron Potter, Head of Sales for Laird & Son. “A well-maintained furnace can last up to twenty years! That’s trouble-free, peak performance as opposed to lengthy and expensive repairs or possibly a new installation of a system.”
It’s a recommendation to hire a professional HVAC company, one with credentials, testimonials, insurance, and a functional website; the telltale signs that this company is legitimate and growing. A small operation with inefficient tools and knowledge working on a family’s home comfort system could bring unforeseen issues.
Continuing with the car metaphor as an example, there are personal touches the car owner can do without becoming an auto mechanics technician. Changing the oil does require a garage and experience, but the topping up of other fluids and maintaining the cleanliness of the vehicle does help it age well. Same applies to HVAC systems. Due to electrostatic charge, the new high-efficiency pleated air filters work like a magnet would to attract and grab the smallest of particles. And even those particles carry germs and bacterium.
The main responsibility as a homeowner is to stick to a maintenance plan or schedule. Families are saving thousands of dollars longterm by planning ahead.
“Be prepared to spend the money at the start of each season to hire a professional company. Like all appliances and possessions at that, the most simplistic rule applies: the more they are serviced and took care of, the longer they last.”
