HVAC systems have many moving parts and require regular maintenance to avoid breakdowns and costly emergency repairs. A residential or commercial HVAC system can function for up to a decade with proper service and routine maintenance. Scheduling preventive, routine maintenance with a Spoor's Heating & Air Conditioning technician ensures your system operates correctly and efficiently, helping you achieve maximum comfort while saving money on utility bills and repairs.
Our HVAC technicians at Spoor's Heating & Air Conditioning are trained to identify, service, and repair a variety of residential and commercial HVAC systems. Contact us today to schedule service from our technicians!
How Often Do You Need HVAC Maintenance & Tune-Ups?
For most homes and businesses, we recommend conducting routine HVAC tune-ups once a year. Be aware that both your heating system and HVAC system will need to be serviced and inspected. These systems can be checked at the same time or at differing times if you would prefer to have your HVAC system serviced before summer and your heating system serviced before winter.
Older Units Need More Maintenance
A general rule of thumb to follow regarding HVAC maintenance and tune-ups is once a year. But, if your home or business has an older unit, we recommend maintenance twice a year. Our team can help determine the proper amount of maintenance needed based on your unit.
Check The Calendar
Knowing when your AC unit was last serviced can help you determine whether you should call to schedule your HVAC tune-up. If you have recently purchased a new unit, it is standard to have a new unit serviced around the start of spring.
Why Get HVAC Maintenance & Tune-Ups
When your AC unit isn't causing you any trouble or presenting any issues, it can be easy to forget that your unit exists. That is until your unit has suddenly stopped blowing cold air into your home in the middle of a hot summer day. With regular maintenance, an emergency air conditioning repair can likely be avoided.
Fewer Emergency Repairs
Emergency HVAC repairs can be costly, especially if you require these services several times throughout the year. Conducting regular maintenance and tune-ups can help to identify and repair any issues that could worsen over time and cause further damage to your unit.
Your HVAC system is a major investment, and when properly maintained, a system that should last for a while. Keeping your existing unit running efficiently through routine maintenance can ensure you get the best return on investment possible for your HVAC unit.
Reduced HVAC Bill
When your HVAC system is functioning efficiently, your system won't be straining to keep up with your home or business's cooling or heating demands. In turn, this can help to reduce your HVAC bill as your system will be functioning properly and efficiently.
One of the most important aspects of HVAC tune-ups is to make sure that your home is safe. Your home and business's smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors are put in place to protect your family from serious risks like a fire or carbon monoxide poisoning, both of which can be deadly.
