With winter weather finally starting to feel like winter here in Maryland, it is important to make sure your HVAC system is up to the test. Just think about how horrible it would be to be without heat in the middle of January. Brrrrrrrr! So it is best to address HVAC Maintenance before the dead of winter, not during.
The Benefits of Preventive HVAC Maintenance
As we have already mentioned, no one wants to be left out in the cold. Preventive maintenance will help catch small problems before the snowball out of control.
Improved Energy Efficiency
Every year your HVAC system goes without service, it loses approximately 5% of its maximum operating efficiency. This means more and more money out of your pocket every year your forgo maintenance. So do the smart thing, the financially responsible thing, and invest in preventive maintenance.
During winter, HVAC companies are booming with business as HVAC system after HVAC system breaks down. While this is great news for the HVAC companies, it means you could be left out in the cold (literally) as you wait for service. This is why it is much better to invest in preventive maintenance to catch and fix small problems before they lead to costly and inconvenient breakdowns.
Finding the Right HVAC Contractor
In the heat of the moment (or, in this case, the cold of the moment), it is important to be cautious when choosing an HVAC contractor. For every good contractor out there, there are a handful of unscrupulous contractors. So, as we said, it is important to be cautious.
- Ask friends and family for referrals. If they have had a positive experience with a company, that is a better starting point than blindly researching companies online.
- Do your research. Once you’ve received a few referrals, begin to research the companies online. Search for reviews and consider checking the company’s rating with the Better Business Bureau (BBB).
