While our outdoor temperatures belie the season somewhat right now, make no mistake: cooler air is on its way. One of the best ways to make sure you have the heat you need is to schedule annual heating maintenance for your HVAC system in St. Johns, FL. Why maintenance? Let’s take a look.
Do you want better energy efficiency?
This may seem like a pretty silly question, because pretty much every homeowner wants better energy efficiency. What may be surprising is how much more efficient your system will be after a maintenance appointment. To give you an idea of what this looks like, the EPA has determined that for every year you don’t have your heating system properly maintained, you’ll lose 5% of your system’s overall efficiency. 5% may not seem like a lot, but if it has been 3 years since your last heating maintenance appointment, you are losing 15% of your system’s overall efficiency.
Do you want to be comfortable?
Again, another question that may seem silly, but the reason we ask it is because a system carrying the wear and tear of season’s past will struggle to meet the temperature set on the thermostat. With proper maintenance, this won’t be an issue.
Do you want to reduce the incidence of repairs?
Of course you do, and we want you to! Maintenance helps in this area because during a maintenance appointment, your entire system undergoes a thorough inspection. This allows our technician to find any outstanding problems and get them addressed before they can turn into big problems that may be costly.
Do you want to see your equipment last as long as possible?
Maintenance keeps your heating system in good working order. A system in good working order doesn’t age prematurely, which helps it to last as long as possible.
We are officially in late fall, heading toward winter. If your heating system needs maintenance, it’s time to give the experts at Climate Masters a phone call!
