Ask a Contractor: Is Maintenance Worth It?

AC-unitWe could not tell you what they encountered in their lives that would make them so distrustful, but there are homeowners out there that refuse to accept the necessity of routine HVAC  maintenance.

There’s nothing wrong with my heater, they say.

My air conditioner is running decently enough, they think.

Oh no, I need to schedule HVAC repairs! they eventually realize.

If we were really only interested in lining our own pockets, we’d actually be telling you to go ahead and skip over the maintenance that your air conditioner and heater need to succeed. That way, we’d make our money on lucrative replacements and frequent repair needs. When it comes to HVAC in Annapolis, MD, however, we are the company to trust. And trust us—

Routine HVAC tune-ups are most definitely in your best interest!

Don’t just take our word for it, though. Read on to learn more about the benefits of professional HVAC maintenance.

Protect Your Investment

If replacing your HVAC systems seems like your idea of a fun way to spend your money, you are in a fairly exclusive club. No, there is no amount of maintenance that is going to make your HVAC system(s) last forever. If you fail to schedule annual tune-ups, though, you’ll be doing so a lot sooner than you’d likely have to otherwise.

The wear and tear that your system suffers over time is unavoidable, but scheduling routine maintenance gives your technicians the opportunity to address that wear and tear and to keep the system in peak working condition. That means that you’ll get the longest lifespan possible from your system, and it also helps to keep certain warranties active so that your system is covered in the event that trouble does develop.

It Surfaces Problems (and Helps to Prevent Them!)

Your air conditioner and/or heater is not going to be problem free. No mechanical system can truthfully make that claim. What routine maintenance allows you to do is to keep those problems as infrequent as possible, though. In doing so, you help to keep your comfort uninterrupted, and to expose developing problems along the way.

There is no such thing as a problem that just gets better with time, nor are there problems that can develop with your HVAC systems that will just resolve themselves. Routine maintenance lets us get in there early on to help prevent problems—and to help prevent existing problems from doing more damage than is absolutely necessary!

Pay As Little As Possible (for Great Comfort)

One great way to cut back on your HVAC-related costs is to suck it up, use your systems less, and live uncomfortably. That doesn’t sound like a great pitch, does it? Of course not, and it is obviously not one that we’d ever make in earnest.

What we will say is that routine maintenance is, bar none, the best way in which you can keep your air conditioner working as efficiently as possible. Great comfort doesn’t have to come with great cost!
