Better HVAC Habits to Help Protect Your Home

Book Seasonal Maintenance While switching out your air filter and sprucing up your vents are essential tasks to prepare your system for a different season, a professional tune-up is critical to conclude the process. During a routine visit, your pro technician will manage a series of tasks that help out the energy efficiency of your HVAC. And while they’re there, your HVAC technician will keep an eye out for more significant complications for your equipment. That could save you a pricey breakdown later in the season.

Work with a heating and cooling company that offers emergency repairs. Even meticulously maintained HVAC systems can have trouble periodically. And it always seems to crop up at the worst times. A company with 24/7 emergency service can handle the headache and distress. The Service Experts Advantage Program offers that vital service to homeowners at no added cost.

Make a plan for your HVAC system transition. Well-maintained home comfort systems can work for 10 to 15 years, but they aren’t able to last forever. Make an idea of what you want now to avoid last-minute pressure when your equipment takes its final bow. The Service Experts Advantage Program™ can be of assistance. It offers you a new high-efficiency heating and cooling system with no up-front charges. As an added bonus, the program also offers free maintenance and repairs.

Keep track of your monthly energy costs and don’t ignore it when they greatly change. Your electricity bills can present more than your monthly expenses. If you’re noticing a steady increase in your bills but no change in home comfort, something is definitely occurring with your HVAC. An updated high-efficiency system can offer you peace of mind with more constant energy usage—and that means fewer surprises on your bill.

Call in the pros when you hear a odd noise from your heating and cooling system. That noise is more than bothersome. It indicates something is off with your equipment. Even if it’s a comparatively small issue, left alone it could make for an costly repair in the future. Don’t try to correct it yourself. Leave it to the pros to diagnose and fix it.

Your home comfort system can cost you quite a bit when you don’t treat it right. If you apply these tips, you could save time, added costs and annoyance. And if your system just isn’t doing its job anymore, consider installing one through the Service Experts Advantage Program. It can help you get an updated energy-efficient system with no up-front costs and free maintenance and repairs.
