Most people don’t think about their heating and cooling systems until something goes wrong, so be sure to conduct proper maintenance before something happens. You wouldn’t want to suffer in 90-degree weather when your cooling system suddenly stops working — any more than you would want to nearly freeze in the winter when your heating system breaks down. Help prevent problems during peak cold and hot seasons by having your cooling and heating systems tuned yearly.
The best time to perform maintenance on your cooling system is in the spring, before warm temperatures make their appearance. No matter how new your cooling system, be sure to have it assessed each year. Maintaining your cooling system can significantly affect how well it performs. If you notice that your energy bill is creeping up or that the air in your home doesn’t seem as fresh as it should, your system might be in need of maintenance. And the same is true for your heating system — be sure to have it tuned before cold weather hits, and keep on guard for signs of underperformance.
Preventive maintenance can help you avoid costly repairs later on, and it can help extend the life of your heating and cooling systems. To learn more about the HVAC life cycle and the role that maintenance plays in it, read the following infographic, originally published by Aqua Plumbing & Air.
