Better HVAC Habits to Help Out Your Wallet

Schedule Annual Maintenance While switching out your air filter and clearing your vents are essential tasks to ready your equipment for a new season, a professional maintenance appointment is critical to complete the process. During a regular maintenance visit, your pro technician will manage a series of tasks that help out the energy efficiency of your system. And while they’re around, your HVAC service pro will look out for more severe headaches for your system. That could save you a high-priced breakdown later down the road.

Choose an HVAC company that offers emergency repairs. Even precisely maintained home comfort systems can have trouble on occasion. And it always seems to happen at the worst times. A company with 24/7 emergency service can manage the headache and trouble. The Service Experts Advantage Program offers that crucial service to homeowners at no other cost.

Make a plan for your HVAC system upgrade. Many HVAC systems can operate for 10 to 15 years, but they can’t last forever. Create a plan now to evade last-minute pressure when your machine takes its ultimate bow. The Service Experts Advantage Program™ can help. It offers you a new high-efficiency heating and cooling system with no up-front costs. Even better, the program also offers free maintenance and repairs.

Keep track of your monthly energy charges and call us when they radically change. Your electricity bills can reveal more than your monthly expenses. If you’re observing a stable escalation in your charges but no variation in home comfort, something is probably occurring with your system. A modern high-efficiency system can give you peace of mind with more consistent energy usage—and that means fewer surprises on your bill.

Act when you hear a weird noise from your home comfort system. That noise is more than bothersome. It indicates something is off with your system. Even if it’s a relatively small problem, left without a repair it could make for an expensive repair later on. Don’t try to correct it yourself. Leave it to the Experts to check out and set it right.
