The air quality in your home or business is important. You spend the majority of your time at home breathing, right? Did you know that due to the buildup of debris in an HVAC system, if not properly maintained, the air quality in your home can be up to 70% worse than the air quality outside? We carry in dust, dirt and dander that finds its way into our ventilation and stays there. The forced air in your home or building circulates air throughout, but it’s also shuffling all of those nasty particles around your space. Some of these settle and form a layer inside your ventilation that you’re continually breathing. This is part of why odors are sometimes carried through your ventilation systems and can be smelled for weeks.

Each year you go in for your yearly exam, you get a physical and ensure that your body is working in proper order. Your home operates on the same basic principle. You won’t know if something isn’t working efficiently, if you haven’t had a professional check it over. An annual inspection will allow a professional to come into your home and inspect your system to ensure that things are running smoothly, and keep potential small problems from turning into large costly ones.
There is no real substitute for having your yearly inspection performed on your HVAC system, but you can make sure that you regularly change your air filters.

Here are some of the best reasons you should consider entering into an annual agreement, or at least scheduling your annual tune-up for the year:
Regular maintenance can extend the lifetime of your system by several years and save you money. It’s the best of both worlds, so why wouldn’t you want to sacrifice the little extra time it takes today to schedule the appointment! Systems that have their maintenance neglected can lose 5% of their efficiency year by year, meaning you’re making up for that in electricity and gas payments. It seems simple enough, but the choice is up to you. Save yourself the time, energy and money by scheduling your fall tune-up today!
