Finding yourself wondering if furnace maintenance is really all that important? It’s a fair thought—we get asked about it all the time. Plenty of folks tell you you need it, sure. But rarely does anyone really tell you why. Well, here at BVS Air Conditioning & Heating, we’re all about giving the right answers!
Is Fall Maintenance Actually Important?
It’s really very easy to just say “yeah, it’s important” and move on. And that’s what tons of HVAC specialists do. But at BVS, we don’t want you to just take it at face value. We’re about answers, and we’re about bringing you the right service to meet your needs. So, yes, it is absolutely important. But we’re also going to tell you why.
Think about anything you should maintain. You maintain a car with oil changes, tune-ups, and tire rotations. You maintain your body with good eating habits (usually), exercise, hygiene, etc. Why do we do these things? Because stuff works better when it is maintained. Your car goes farther and gets better gas mileage. And in a way you can say the same about the human body. Your HVAC system is pretty much exactly the same. When it gets proper care, it works better, for longer, and at less cost!
The Benefits of Fall Furnace Maintenance
So what exactly are the benefits of annual maintenance? There are actually quite a few, and some of them you may have never even considered! When you get maintenance from the experts at BVS, you get:
- Lower energy costs. Getting routine maintenance can directly impact your energy costs in a big, big way. This is because a system that is not well maintained tends to be dirty and often has loose electrical connections/poorly working components—all of which lead to more energy consumption from your HVAC system.
- A lower risk of breakdowns. Tons of the furnace repair calls we get could be completely avoided if the owner had gotten maintenance on a regular basis. And by tons we mean the majority of them. No joke! Most breakdowns are a result of damaged or loose components, dirt buildup in the furnace, or bad air flow—all of which are addressed with routine professional care.
- Better home air quality. It might not have crossed your mind, but your furnace picks up loads of dust, grease, pollen, and even mold spores. With routine maintenance, all of that is taken out of your furnace and thus out of circulation within your home. And you can even take this benefit a step further by ensuring you get yearly duct cleaning!
- A longer-lived furnace. A clean, well-maintained furnace system can be expected to last a decade or more, sometimes even up to 15 years depending on the system. But without maintenance, that number can be cut in half.
