Your HVAC system gets an occasional rest between seasons in Charleston, South Carolina, but it ages year-round. Outside HVAC parts like your compressor and condenser are subjected to the elements. Parts you can’t see could be aging to the point of failure. So even if you do your own basic HVAC maintenance on a regular basis, there are at least three good reasons to have your HVAC professionally serviced annually.

Ensure That Your HVAC System Is Running Efficiently

Many people don’t think about their HVAC system most of the time as long as it seems to be running OK. The problem is that even a running HVAC system may be operating inefficiently, working harder than necessary and adding to your electric and gas bills. Annual HVAC service can identify a host of efficiency issues from simple air filter replacement to home weatherizing opportunities.

Catch Problems Before a Breakdown Occurs

Why do HVAC breakdowns happen at the worst time, leaving you sweltering in summer heat or putting another sweater on to stay warm in winter? Having your HVAC serviced annually can help catch potential failures before they occur. Typical elements that maintenance service can uncover range from refrigerant leaks and compressor performance to flame sensor and heat exchanger health.

Reduce Operating Costs and Budget Service

The last thing anyone looks forward to is a large, unplanned expense which can happen when your HVAC system fails due to lack of regular service. An annual service check prolongs the life of your HVAC system by ensuring that it runs efficiently and addressing small problems before they become failures. And if a potential problem is found that may require a future repair or replacement, then you can schedule the work so it won’t interfere with something else on your calendar and adjust your budget to cover the repair.
