“If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” is a saying you’ve probably heard before. If your HVAC is broken, you’ll want to call a professional and get it fixed for your own comfort. But if your HVAC is working fine, you won’t notice when it’s struggling to regulate the temperature in your home.
Why, then, do we recommend regular maintenance for your HVAC?
The answer is twofold. One, a well-maintained HVAC unit is more energy efficient. This can save you up to 15% on energy costs for the unit. Two, a technician can identify problems with your HVAC before they become irreparable. Catching these problems in time saves you thousands of dollars you would have had to spend on a new HVAC unit.
With that in mind, let’s discuss how often your HVAC needs to get serviced.
How Often Should I Get My HVAC Serviced?
You’ll want to get your HVAC serviced twice per year: one session for the heating system, one for the cooling system.
Should I Get My HVAC Serviced at a Particular Time of Year?
It’s best to get your AC serviced in Spring. This way, you can rest assured that your unit is in working condition before the summer hits. AC technicians are particularly in-demand during the summer, so you don’t want to have an emergency call during that time of the year.
Following the same logic, it’s best to get your heating system serviced in Fall.
Are There Any Exceptions?
Of course, your HVAC may need to get serviced outside of your yearly maintenance schedule. If you hear strange noises for the unit – or if it isn’t regulating the temperature of your home correctly – it’s best to call a technician as soon as possible.
As well, yearly maintenance is for people who change their air filter regularly. If you don’t want to perform any maintenance tasks for the unit, you should speak with your HVAC maintenance technician to determine the right schedule for you.
