Preventive AC Maintenance

Regular AC maintenance is vital to ensuring optimal air flow and that all parts are working well. Ideally, you should have your HVAC system cleaned and checked twice a year, once in the fall before the heating season and once in the spring before the cooling season. Because air conditioners are expensive and complicated pieces of machinery, with both electrical and mechanical systems that need regular checkups, a twice yearly maintenance schedule will you help to avoid costly repairs by finding and correcting any potential issues before they become expensive problems. With proper maintenance, an HVAC unit can last well over 10 years. And, when you consider the cost of purchasing a new unit, you want your current system to last as long as possible.
