An often-hidden, but always-essential part of HVAC system ownership for your Indian Wells, CA home is taking good care of the equipment that works so hard to take care of you. You might even view HVAC maintenance as the “silent requirement” you may have to remind yourself to tend to — because when things are going well, system upkeep can be easy to ignore. Yet, if you ignore it long enough, your system will eventually become more “vocal,” telling you in no uncertain terms that it needs attention. But, don’t wait that long to have your system serviced. By that time, you’ll most likely need more routine maintenance.

Here are five good reasons why heating and AC maintenance is something it pays to be proactive about:

More Consistent Comfort

A well-maintained system delivers greater dependability and better overall performance, which add up to more consistent comfort for you and your family in winter and summer.

Increased Energy Efficiency

Staying up-to-date on system tune-ups increases energy efficiency, making your system less costly to operate while boosting its effectiveness — a real win/win. A well-maintained heat pump, for example, requires 10 percent to 25 percent less electricity to keep you comfortable than a poorly maintained one.

Fewer Repairs

On the whole, HVAC systems that receive regular professional attention and conscientious homeowner care require fewer and less-expensive HVAC repairs.

Longer System Life

By reducing the amount of wear and tear on critical system components, routine maintenance keeps your equipment operating longer, translating to a much longer lifespan of the system.

Greater Peace of Mind

The fewer HVAC headaches you’re forced to contend with, the greater your peace of mind — and it’s hard to put a value on that. To learn more about the importance of system maintenance or to schedule your service, call us to schedule a maintenance appointment today.
