Is your air conditioner struggling to cool your home? According to Energy Star – a U.S Environmental Protection Agency voluntary program, most modern HVAC systems or air conditioners are built to last an average of 15 years, completely dependent on make & model, as well as your climate, how often you run the system, and how often your air conditioner is maintained.

Your air conditioner is something most of us take for granted, and never really give any consideration to until it breaks down & leaves us vulnerable to the elements. When this happens, you’ll rush to find an HVAC company to come to your home, and hope they provide a quick & easy fix. However, sometimes these “quick & easy fixes” can’t actually be completed easily, quickly, or even cheaply.

When this happens, you have a pretty big decision to make: repair or replace your existing air conditioner system? How can you know what the best decision is for you, your home, & your wallet?

Why You Should Have Your Heating System Maintenanced


As the weather starts to lower, it is a good time to make sure your heating system is running properly. The last thing anyone wants, in the middle of a cold winter, is to have to deal with a broken system.

Have your current system checked

There are a number of maintenance checks you should perform on your heating systems at the start of fall. This includes checking and changing your air filters (about every month or so), make sure the ducts are properly connected and that there is not damage, and clean out any dust and debris around the area of the system. You should try turning your system on, to ensure it is properly running.

When was the last time you had your heating system checked by a professional? Don’t wait until your system has problems; schedule a maintenance check with a professional today. This can help prevent your system from having problems. During this maintenance check, the HVAC professional will do a number of checks and maintenance including: lubricating moving parts, checking the voltage on the motor, and make sure all parts are function properly.

Benefits of maintenance

When your heating system isn’t maintained, the pieces, over time, will start operating at a lower standard. This can cause problems in the system, which might lead to it failing. Often times, it will also lead to it having to work harder to perform its task. This can mean more energy use and higher bills. Having annual maintenance done on your system can help lower your bills, and keep your heating system running at a higher standard.

Upgrade your system

If you currently have an older HVAC system, one that is over ten years old, it might be time to consider upgrading the system. This can be an energy efficient way, to make sure you stay warm this winter. The last thing you want is for your old system to stop working right in the middle of a cold night.

Having regular maintenance on your system can help prevent future problems. There are a few things you can do yourself, but you should also have a professional check your system. If your system is having issues, you might want to consider upgrading your system today.
