We all know the benefits of keeping up to date with servicing our cars. After all, a quick fix on a wearing part now can save you thousands if that part were to break and impact the whole mechanical system.
Your heating and cooling system is no different. It requires a regular service to keep it in optimal condition, and make sure it’s not costing you money needlessly in the future.
Here are 5 reasons to service your heating and cooling system every year…
- Detect small issues before they become big problems
When a part in your heating and cooling system is approaching end of life, replacing it isn’t expensive.
However, letting that part continue to wear down puts unnecessary strain on your entire system. By the time it eventually breaks, it may have caused irreparable damage to other parts which then also need to be replaced. In some cases, this may include the whole main unit which will set you back thousands of dollars.
Booking in for a service each year means a professional can check all of the parts to make sure they are in good working order. Where they’re not, they can be quickly and easily replaced for a small fee – which saves you big money in the long run.
- Your system will run more efficiently which reduces cost
Any heating and cooling system that has not been serviced for a long time is not running as efficiently as it can be. Dirt and dust build up, and this impacts your comfort as well as making the system work harder…which ultimately means it costs more to run.
During a yearly service, a professional will look for anything that could impact your system’s performance and address it immediately.
- Maintenance can keep your warranty active
Some heating and cooling system manufacturers place a clause in their warranty that the system must be serviced each year for the warranty to remain valid.
When a warranty could last up to 5 years, it’s a small price to pay to book in for an annual service to give you peace of mind that the system will be fixed or replaced for free if it breaks.
- Maintenance increases the lifespan of your system
The lifespan of your heating and cooling system depends on the type of system you have. Some systems last between 7 and 10 years – others for more than 20 years.
We generally find that the heating and cooling systems which last the longest are those that have been maintained well.
- Keeps you comfortable when you most need it
Cars always seem to break down at the most inconvenient times – like when you’re late for work or have an important event to get to.
The same can happen with a heating and cooling system that is not maintained well. You’ll often find it breaks down at the worst time, like right before a 35 degree day or a freezing cold night!
Regular maintenance significantly reduces the chance of this happening to you, so you can rest assured that your system will be there for you when you need it most.
