Any way you look at it, Maintenance is a smart investment. Manufactures, contractors, independent publications and homeowners all agree, if you are looking to save money on utility bills while extending the life and efficient performance of your Home Comfort System, then Preventative Maintenance is your answer!

Your Home Comfort System is like your car – both are mechanical systems that require consistent and regular maintenance. You change the oil in your car every 3,000 miles because it helps keep your car running safely and reliably. Much like your car, your Home Comfort System must be cared for throughout its life, in order for it to continue keeping you comfortable inside your home efficiently and effectively. If you were to get in your car and drive it for 2,500 hours at 55 miles per hour, you would put 137,500 miles on your odometer and changed the oil 45 times. Well, the average family “drives” their Home Comfort System an average of 2,500 hours per year at full speed! With all that stress put on your Home Comfort System, you can see why it is a good idea to have your unit tuned up at least once a year.

Thoughts on the Value of Maintenance – “Maintain your equipment to prevent future problems and unwanted costs. Keep your cooling and heating systems at peak performance by having a contractor do annual pre-season check-ups. Contractors get busy once summer and winter come, so it is best to check the cooling system in the spring and the heating system in the fall.”
