Importance of HVAC Tune-Ups

There are a lot of northern Illinois homeowners who shrug off getting their furnace or air conditioner tuned up each year. However, it is important to realize that regular annual maintenance of a heating and cooling system may help to extend its life, and help to make your home more comfortable and energy efficient.

Preventative maintenance can help to ensure that your air conditioner or furnace runs smoothly all season long without any unexpected breakdowns. We realize that there are a lot of homeowners who may neglect scheduling time for a tune-up because if everything seems to be working OK, then there is no reason to call for an appointment, right? Wrong. Think of your car. You don’t forget to schedule yearly maintenance for your car, truck, or van. So, you shouldn’t forget to schedule it for your air conditioner and furnace, as well.

Benefits of Heating and Cooling System Tune- Ups

  • Fewer breakdowns – during a maintenance appointment, the local and experienced technician sent to your home will be able to catch problems early on before they result in total breakdowns of the system.
  • Extended life – research has shown that heating and cooling systems that are properly maintained tend to last longer than systems where tune-ups aren’t regularly scheduled each year.
  • Safer home – your technician will check the systems thoroughly for any issues which could become a threat to the safety of you and your family. For example, electrical wiring will be checked, and so on.
  • Efficiency - the appointment will also include the technician removing built-up dust and dirt from the system. This can help to make the unit run much more efficiently. This could potentially help to save you money on your energy bills each month, as well.
