What’s The Purpose of Spring HVAC Preventative Maintenance?

What if you could breathe cleaner air and experience more comfortable temperatures in your home, all while saving money every month on your energy bills? While it may sound too good to be true, those are really just a few of the benefits you’ll experience when you get regular preventative maintenance performed on your comfort system. 

Why get spring HVAC preventative maintenance?

The purpose of having preventative maintenance performed on your system in the spring is to get your air conditioner ready for warmer weather. After months of sitting stagnant while your heater does its job, your air conditioner needs an inspection to ensure it runs properly when it’s time to start it up again. This prevents you from needing emergency repairs when the heat is on the rise.

What are the benefits?

On top of preventing costly breakdowns, spring HVAC preventative maintenance also improves your system’s efficiency (lowering your energy bills each month), protects your system warranty, and extends the life of your system so you won’t need a replacement for years to come. Spring HVAC preventative maintenance also includes professional cleaning to improve your indoor air quality.
