When it comes to their HVAC system, many homeowners may consider it a set-and-forget appliance. However, unlike your oven or clothes dryer, your HVAC system could be the hardest working piece of machinery in your home! Whether it’s blowing cool air in the summer or warm heat in the winter, it’s always in demand – ready at all hours of the day to keep your home cozy. Investing in an HVAC maintenance plan can help you prolong the life of your entire home’s HVAC system, saving you big money over time.
Why You Should Start An HVAC Maintenance Plan
Your HVAC system is a crucial investment in your family’s comfort, so you want yours to last as long as possible! Preventing system failure that requires things like a complete furnace replacement or even costly furnace repairs, can save homeowners thousands over the course of their HVAC systems life. Here are 5 things you can do to keep your system pumping clean and comfortably conditioned air longer:
Set Your Routine Maintenance Appointments
With our Energy Savings Agreement, it’s easier than ever to ensure regular HVAC checks! A simple phone call can get you set up for twice a year check-ups. Since you are not waiting until you need a trouble call, technicians could find problems the typical homeowner might not notice. These minor issues could turn into big problems down the line if not fixed in a timely manner.
Improve Your Indoor Air Quality
Who wants to breathe in dust, dirt, pet dander, or anything else besides clean, fresh air? If your filters are clogged up, these pollutants and allergens are stuck in your HVAC system and distributed throughout your home. Mildly annoying to most, these particles can be especially harmful to those suffering from asthma or other respiratory illnesses. Make sure to have regular maintenance checks and change filters to decontaminate your air. To further eliminate pollutants, consider asking your technician about installing an Air Scrubber to keep things fresh and clean.
Lower Your Energy Output
A dirty HVAC system works harder because of dust and dirt clogging airflow. This means it’s using more energy to bypass that grime to transport air inside. Save your system from working so hard and make it more efficient with regular cleanings.
Keep Your System Clean
We understand that making the difficult decision to purchase a brand new HVAC system potentially fills you with anxiety. A brand new system is a major investment and, like any home improvement, can leave your household disrupted during install. We get it. That’s why it’s crucial to extend the life of your current system with regular calibrations, cleanings, lubrications, and repairs. Regular maintenance and mindfulness can keep your system running smoothly for even longer than it’s expected lifetime.

At MSCO, we have technicians ready to serve 24/7. Don’t hesitate to call. Don’t wait until your HVAC system stops performing well, or worse – breaks down completely.
