There are plenty of reasons that you should reach out to your local HVAC company throughout the year apart from when your system isn’t working right. For instance, you should be contacting your local heating and air company at least once a year to schedule your annual maintenance.

Schedule Your Annual Maintenance
The most important reason you should call your local HVAC company other than when your system isn’t working right is to schedule your annual maintenance. Benefits of completing an annual maintenance with your local heating and cooling company include:
- Keeps your manufacturer warranties active. Manufacturers require that you have an annual maintenance performed on your system every year in order to keep any of their warranties on your system active.
- Reduces the chance of your system breaking down. Up to 90% of HVAC mechanical breakdowns are due to dirt. During an annual maintenance, your system is cleaned and the buildup of dirt is removed.
- Professional safety assessment of your system. A professional HVAC technician should perform a safety inspection on your system during the annual maintenance. He or she will let you know if there are any safety concerns that may impact your family as well as any repairs that may need to occur.
- Improves the efficiency of your system. Annual maintenances help to keep your system running efficiently, which gives your system a longer lifespan.
