Heating, Ventilation and Cooling (HVAC) systems are like any mechanical device: they improve life when properly maintained, but cause major headaches if allowed to break down.
"Your AC can be a real lifesaver during the summer months when they’re working properly," says Rob Mitchell, owner of Mitchell Heating in Colorado Springs. “However, when they break they can quickly make your home miserable.”
With this in mind, here are 4 great reasons for keeping your HVAC system running smoothly this summer:
1. This year has already been a scorcher
June 2016 was a brutal month for heat in Colorado Springs. Of the month's 30 days, the mercury reached:
• 80 degrees or higher on 25 days
• 85 degrees or higher on 16 days
• 90 degrees or higher on seven days
• a sizzling 101 degrees on June 21
The 101 degree Fahrenheit reading matched the hottest temperature previously recorded in Colorado Springs, equaling the temperature recorded during the Waldo Canyon fire of 2012. And it’s just the beginning of the season!
2. You like to save money
Servicing your unit costs a couple hundred dollars. Repairing or replacing it can cost thousands and leave you without heat or air conditioning while it’s being serviced.
In addition, your unit will run more efficiently, make less noise and pump out cleaner air for you to breathe. Annual HVAC servicing is just as important as changing the oil and getting a tune-up on your car.
3. Your system will last longer
The natural life of HVAC units is usually 10-15 years. Preventive maintenance helps avoid costly malfunctions and systemic breakdowns that reduce the life of the unit.
“A small annual investment can add years to the life of your HVAC," says Mitchell.
4. Fall and winter will be here before you know it
Maybe you think you can live without your air conditioning for a week or two. But your house can’t live without heat in the Colorado winter. Water freezes. Pipes burst. A malfunctioning unit is an emergency come cold weather, just four months away.
Part of being a smart homeowner is protecting your investments through proper maintenance. Plus, by investing today, you can save a lot of hassle in the future. And all it takes is one phone call to a reputable HVAC service provider like Mitchell Heating, LLC.
