New HVAC Habits to Help Protect Your Home

Arrange Annual Maintenance While replacing your air filter and clearing your vents are essential tasks to ready your equipment for a different season, a professional maintenance appointment is helpful to finish the process. During a maintenance visit, your professional technician will handle a series of tasks that maximize the energy efficiency of your HVAC. And while they’re in your home, your HVAC service technician will be on the lookout for more serious headaches for your home. That could save you a pricey breakdown in the future.

Find an HVAC company that offers emergency repairs. Even precisely maintained home comfort systems can have trouble occasionally. And it always seems to happen at the least convenient times. A company with 24/7 emergency service can save you the headache and trouble. The Service Experts Advantage Program offers that vital service to homeowners at no additional cost.

Devise a plan for your HVAC system upgrade. Well-maintained HVAC systems can function for 10 to 15 years, but they can’t last forever. Create an idea of what you want now to evade last-minute pressure when your machine takes its last bow. The Service Experts Advantage Program™ can help. It offers you a new high-efficiency home comfort system with no up-front expenses. As an added bonus, the program also has free maintenance and repairs.

Keep track of your monthly energy bills and call us when they greatly change. Your power bills can show you more than your monthly costs. If you’re observing a stable escalation in your bills but no change in home comfort, something is likely going on with your system. An updated high-efficiency system can give you peace of mind with more consistent energy usage—and that means fewer unknown amounts on your bill.

Act when you detect a weird noise from your home comfort system. That noise is more than bothersome. It indicates something is amiss with your HVAC. Even if it’s a relatively small problem, left without a repair it could make for a high-priced repair down the road. Don’t try to correct it yourself. Leave it to the professionals to figure out and set it right.

Your HVAC can cost you big when you don’t maintain it. If you apply these tips, you could save time, extra costs and disappointment. And if your equipment just isn’t helping anymore, think about installing one through the Service Experts Advantage Program. It can get you an updated energy-efficient system with no up-front costs and free maintenance and repairs.
