Better HVAC Habits to Help Protect Your Home

Book Seasonal Maintenance While changing your air filter and clearing your vents are useful tasks to ready your equipment for a season change, a professional tune-up is helpful to conclude the process. During a regular maintenance visit, your professional technician will complete a series of tasks that maximize the energy efficiency of your system. And while they’re in your home, your HVAC professional will look out for more significant issues for your home. That could save you a pricey breakdown later in the season.

Work with a home comfort company that offers emergency repairs. Even carefully maintained heating and cooling systems can have problems periodically. And it always seems to occur at the worst times. A company with 24/7 emergency service can fix the headache and trouble. The Service Experts Advantage Program provides that vital service to customers at no extra cost.

Have a plan for your HVAC system transition. Some heating and cooling systems can last for 10 to 15 years, but they aren’t able to last forever. Build a plan now to bypass last-minute pressure when your equipment takes its last bow. The Service Experts Advantage Program™ can be useful. It gives you a new high-efficiency HVAC system with no up-front costs. Even better, the program comes with free maintenance and repairs.

Keep track of your monthly energy expenses and don’t ignore it when they dramatically change. Your energy bills can tell you more than your monthly charges. If you’re seeing a regular climb in your expenses but no difference in home comfort, something is definitely going on with your HVAC. An updated high-efficiency system can give you peace of mind with more consistent energy usage—and that means fewer unknown amounts on your bill.

Take action when you hear a odd noise from your HVAC system. That noise is more than irritating. It indicates something is wrong with your system. Even if it’s a comparatively small problem, left unchecked it could make for an expensive repair later on. Don’t try to correct it yourself. Leave it to the Experts to diagnose and fix it.

Your home comfort system can cost you quite a lot when you don’t treat it right. If you utilize these tips, you could save time, added costs and annoyance. And if your HVAC just isn’t cutting it anymore, consider choosing one through the Service Experts Advantage Program. It can get you an updated energy-efficient system with no up-front costs and free maintenance and repairs.
