Jane Austen once said, “there is nothing like staying home for real comfort.” We couldn’t agree more. Home is our place of respite after long days, the place where food is cooked and family and friends gather, and a safe haven. While we love our homes, there are certain things we must do throughout the year in terms of maintenance.

The heating and cooling system in your home is one of the most critical components to keep maintained and in great working condition, no matter what season we’re in. It helps keep you cool and comfortable in the summer and warm and cozy in the winter. Besides purchases such as a car or your home itself, your HVAC system is one of the largest investments in your home so it’s wise to protect it with a regular maintenance schedule. Here are just some of the many benefits to routine checks and keeping your home comfort system in optimal condition.

Lower Energy Bills
If you haven’t looked at your energy bill lately, you may want to take a peek at it. Looking at your energy bill can give you a hint as to how your HVAC is running efficiently, and if you see something off, it could mean you need routine maintenance. Your heating and cooling will run better after regular checks, just like a car would.

Fewer Repairs
Checking your HVAC system on a more frequent basis leaves less room for pesky repairs, and can catch them before they even happen. If you notice an odd noise or odor coming from your furnace, having someone come out and service it can catch a problem before it starts, and save you money down the road.

Lower Chance of Breakdown
The last thing you want is to have your air conditioner break during a heat wave. Having a professional routinely check your AC or furnace leave less room for it to break down, especially at the most inopportune times.

Longer Lifespan
If you want to get your money’s worth out of the HVAC system you purchase, regular checks are one way to do it. Being regularly serviced and clean will ensure your system runs as it should, and will prevent an event that could lead to your entire system shutting down.

Safer Equipment
Regular checks can find problems with your system that could potentially be hazardous to your health. For example, if something is wrong with your furnace and you don’t catch it, it could lead to carbon monoxide poisoning and harm your family. Make sure you schedule a maintenance check this year before winter to help avoid events like these.
