Useful HVAC Habits to Help You Save

Arrange Annual Maintenance While swapping out your air filter and sprucing up your vents are useful tasks to prep your equipment for a different season, a professional tune-up is necessary to complete the process. During a maintenance visit, your professional technician will perform a series of tasks that boost the energy efficiency of your machine. And while they’re around, your HVAC technician will be on the lookout for more significant complications for your home. That could save you an expensive breakdown later in the season.

Choose a home comfort company that offers emergency repairs. Even meticulously maintained home comfort systems can have issues periodically. And it always seems to hit at the least convenient times. A company with 24/7 emergency service can save you the headache and distress. The Service Experts Advantage Program gives that vital service to homes at no additional cost.

Create a plan for your HVAC system replacement. Well-maintained home comfort systems can operate for 10 to 15 years, but they won’t last forever. Make a plan now to evade last-minute pressure when your system takes its ultimate bow. The Service Experts Advantage Program™ can be of assistance. It brings you a new high-efficiency HVAC system with no up-front expenses. Even better, the program also has free maintenance and repairs.

Keep track of your monthly energy expenses and call us when they radically change. Your power bills can reveal more than your monthly charges. If you’re seeing a regular escalation in your expenses but no difference in home comfort, something is definitely happening with your equipment. A new high-efficiency system can provide you peace of mind with more stable energy usage—and that means fewer surprises on your bill.

Call in the pros when you hear a strange noise from your HVAC system. That noise is more than aggravating. It illustrates something is off with your equipment. Even if it’s a seemingly small issue, left without a repair it could make for an high-priced repair down the road. Don’t try to fix it yourself. Leave it to the pros to check out and set it right.

Your HVAC 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.
