It’s easy to ignore your heater and air conditioner when they’re working but the moment something breaks, you will likely regret not keeping up with maintenance. After all, if something goes wrong, you may be stuck with a repair that will take longer and be more expensive than simple maintenance.

So, with the weather starting to cool, it’s time to get a check on your heating system.

“The best time to think about doing your heating maintenance is before you want to use your heat,” says local HVAC company Day & Night. “Don’t wait until that first cold morning when you want to turn the heat on and realize that you haven’t had your heating system treated yet. To catch problems before they become bigger during routine maintenance can save money on repairs for those larger components through preventative maintenance.”

The great thing about doing maintenance is you can have your heating system and air conditioner checked at the same time. You may wonder why you need to have your A/C checked when you’re not planning on using it again for months, but it’s something you should be doing twice a year.

“Proper preventative maintenance for your A/C is one of the best investments you can make,” Day & Night says. “Treating your A/C to a tune-up is like visiting the doctor for a regular checkup. It gives our pros the chance to see how ‘healthy’ your air conditioning is.”

Here are a few of the benefits:

  • Better energy efficiency
  • Improved air quality
  • Increased cooling output
  • Less wear and tear of essential parts
  • Lower electricity bill
  • Fewer A/C breakdowns or problems

While your system may be fine, there is a chance a technician will find an issue that will only get worse if ignored.

“Preventative maintenance lets us detect and correct issues right away,” Day & Night says. “Fixing small problems can prevent future breakdowns, keeping your air conditioner running smoothly. With proper A/C maintenance, you can potentially save thousands of dollars in repair costs and electricity.”

As for energy efficiency, your air conditioner’s parts can degrade over time without care.

“An air conditioner’s filters, coils, and fins require regular maintenance for the unit to function effectively and efficiently throughout its years of service,” according to the U.S. Department of Energy. “Neglecting necessary maintenance ensures a steady decline in air conditioning performance while energy use steadily increases.”

Heating your home also takes a lot of energy, which translates into higher utility bills

“Heating your home uses more energy and costs more money than any other system in your home — typically making up about 29% of your utility bill,” the Department of Energy says. “No matter what kind of heating system you have in your house, you can save money and increase your comfort by properly maintaining and upgrading your equipment.”

A maintenance appointment will include an inspection, cleaning, tune-up, and repair, if necessary.

“At Day & Night Air Conditioning, Heating & Plumbing, we have decades of experience in taking care of HVAC systems,” the company says on it website. “As certified professionals, we can detect problem areas before they get serious, saving you the trouble of worrying about repairs. Our goal is to help you select the best option for your lifestyle and budget.”
