Your home has a number of expensive components. Repairing (and/or replacing) your roof, your washer/dryer, your central AC unit, furnace and HVAC can be very, very expensive.
As a homeowner you have two choices—you can either keep up with regular maintenance and upkeep, or you can ignore it. One of these choices will cost a little more up front but will save you quite a bit of money on the back end.
The other, well, let’s just say you should be prepared to write some large checks.
The hands-down best way to prevent costly repairs is to stick to the manufacturer’s maintenance guidelines.
Below are just a few of the ways that regular maintenance for your HVAC system in your Loveland, Colorado home can help save you money.
Keep an ear out for strange noises
A few years ago we had a client that hired a house sitter to stay with her pets while she was traveling. A day into the two-week trip, the house sitter called to tell our client that the living room ceiling had a leak. It had been raining all day, so they figured there was a problem with the roof.
When our client arrived home, she was quick to notice her HVAC system was making some terrible noises.
As it turned out, the supposed “leak in the roof” was not a roof problem at all—the problem had to do with her HVAC system. Since the problem had been ignored during the time our client was traveling, it became much, much worse. As such, it cost a heck of a lot more to fix.
If you notice your HVAC, your furnace or your central AC unit is making strange sounds, be sure to contact a Loveland, HVAC repair company right away.
Remember- ignoring a problem will not make said problem go away.
Clean air filters will help to keep the motor happy
When your air filters are clogged and dirty, your HVAC system is going to need to work a lot harder to push air through your ductwork. Not only will this put additional strain on the motor, the additional strain will materialize in higher electricity bills.
You should be checking the filters in your HVAC system on a monthly basis and swapping the filters out as often as necessary.
