Your Home HVAC Tune-Up Should Cover These Tasks

You count on your HVAC system for home comfort throughout the year. The last thing you want is for the air conditioning to power down on a scorching summer day or the heater to stop working on a bitter winter night. The best method to prevent your heating and cooling system from shutting down is to schedule an annual HVAC tune-up with Finch Air Conditioning & Heating

Why Does My HVAC System Have to Have Maintenance?

Your HVAC system hides behind ceilings and floors, so it’s simple to forget about it. However, an ignored system is liable to work less efficiently, stop working more regularly, and meet the end of its life span prematurely.

The purpose of an HVAC tune-up is to keep your furnace and air conditioner working smoothly throughout the year.

In the process, you might potentially:

  • Reduce your heating and cooling expenses
  • Have a smaller number of costly repairs
  • Add years to your system’s life

Besides that, it’s required by manufacturers to keep your warranty valid. Due to these perks, the fee of tuning up your HVAC system is an investment that pays for itself.

It’s advised to schedule maintenance annually for each HVAC system. This means requesting an appointment for your air conditioning every spring and having your furnace inspected and cleaned every fall. With this timing, you prep the proper system to run at its peak in the upcoming cooling or heating season.
