Why Is HVAC Maintenance Important?

Extended Life Expectancy

As your HVAC system ages, its performance declines. On average, the life expectancy for a heating and cooling unit is around 15 years, although it could be as low as 10 years or less without proper maintenance. An HVAC maintenance plan can extend the life of your system by several years or even a decade.

Lower Utility Bills

In sunny Auburn, CA, families can pay thousands of dollars every year on utility bills — much of that consumption is attributed to heating and air conditioning. Since maintenance plans keep your HVAC system at its peak efficiency, you could save money every year on energy costs. This is better for the planet and your budget.

Improved Air Quality

Between seasonal wildfires and city pollution, your family doesn’t need any more sources of poor air quality. Yet dirty air filters, vents, and ducts can degrade indoor air quality by introducing dust, mold, and pathogens into your living space. HVAC maintenance helps keep your household safe and your loved ones healthy.

Peace Of Mind

When the AC unit stops working on a sweltering summer day, that’s usually because the system lacks maintenance. Avoid missing out on the conditioned air that keeps everybody cozy warm or comfortably cool and content. Make sure your unit is in top shape with planned HVAC maintenance.

What Our Customers Are Saying

We have been very pleased with the service and support that Spoor’s Heating and Air Conditioning has given us.  We are now on our third heating and air conditioning system in three different houses, and each them has improved our energy efficiency and reduced our electric bills.  Spoor’s has been very willing to work with us and our timeline to get the jobs done and their personnel are the best. Each and every one has been courteous and professional.  

We use them to continue to maintain our systems to keep them in tiptop working order.  They go the extra mile by also replacing the batteries in smoke alarms and filters in the systems when doing the check-ups.  When something has gone wrong with the systems, they go the extra mile to verify any warranty coverage that may still exist.

I recommend them for all your air conditioning and heating work.

I can not say enough good things about Spoor's Heating & Air! I not only use them to maintain my system at home but I also use them in my real estate business. They help me inspect and/or repair systems for my clients during crucial times in a real estate transaction. They truly go above and beyond for their customers. I highly recommend them!

–Margaux Sindoni

We had another company try to sell us the sun, moon and stars and drive us to a brand new unit. Spoor’s was able to fix the problem at a fraction of the cost. Our next call was a pre-winter check up of our furnace, which was done quickly and efficiently. I was so pleased with their work that I have decided to sign up for their very reasonably priced pre-summer and pre-winter service contract. I would highly recommend Spoor's for all of your heating and air conditioning needs.

Great company with fast response times! Our restaurants ac went out around 12pm and we open at 5! called a few heating and air companies and they were the first to get back to me. All of their employees were currently out on other jobs but the owner Jeff himself came out and fixed our miner problem by 3pm leaving us with a fresh dinning room for the busy night shift. highly recommend them!! family owned and operated!

There honest reasonably priced and have a great work ethic! I can't say enough of how they bend over backwards to help their customers.

-Christine Riley

We recently replaced a heating and air conditioning unit at our rental. Spoor's Heating and Air presented a very reasonable bid for the work with higher end equipment than what their competitors offered. They were extremely timely and professional, both when the old heater needed servicing, as well as installing the new system. The new system had some difficult placement issues and they did an excellent job strategizing the best installation solution. My husband used to install these types of systems (retired). He observed the work, and was extremely pleased with the end result. We highly recommend Spoor's Heating and Air.
