Useful HVAC Habits to Help Out Your Wallet

Schedule Seasonal Maintenance While changing your air filter and clearing your vents are important tasks to prepare your equipment for a different season, a professional maintenance visit is essential to conclude the process. During a regular maintenance visit, your HVAC technician will handle a series of tasks that maximize the energy efficiency of your HVAC. And while they’re around, your HVAC service pro will keep an eye out for more urgent complications for your system. That could save you a costly breakdown in the future.

Choose an HVAC company that offers emergency repairs. Even carefully maintained heating and cooling systems can have complications periodically. And it always seems to hit at the worst times. A company with 24/7 emergency service can manage the headache and trouble. The Service Experts Advantage Program offers that critical service to customers at no extra cost.

Make a plan for your HVAC system replacement. Some home comfort systems can last for 10 to 15 years, but they aren’t able to last forever. Create a strategy now to avoid last-minute pressure when your equipment takes its final bow. The Service Experts Advantage Program™ can help. It provides you a new high-efficiency heating and cooling system with no up-front costs. Even better, the program also has free maintenance and repairs.

Keep track of your monthly energy expenses and take note when they dramatically change. Your electricity bills can present more than your monthly expenses. If you’re observing a steady climb in your charges but no variation in home comfort, something is likely going on with your equipment. A new high-efficiency system can offer you peace of mind with more reliable energy usage—and that means fewer shocks on your bill.

Act when you hear an odd noise from your home comfort system. That noise is more than bothersome. It demonstrates something is amiss with your machinery. Even if it’s a seemingly small problem, left unchecked it could make for a costly repair down the road. Don’t try to regulate it yourself. Leave it to the Experts to check out and fix it.

Your home comfort system can cost you quite a bit when you don’t manage it. If you apply these tips, you could save time, added costs and disappointment. And if your HVAC just isn’t cutting it anymore, contemplate choosing one through the Service Experts Advantage Program. It can get you a new energy-efficient system with no up-front costs and free maintenance and repairs.
