Preventative maintenance is necessary for a lot of things. You get the oil changed in your car to prevent it from breaking down while you’re driving. You go to the doctor for annual check-ups to make sure things like your cholesterol level and blood pressure are where they should be. These things aren’t fun to schedule and take care of, but you do it anyway because you know it’s necessary for your safety and health.
Your HVAC systems also need preventive maintenance to avoid problems down the road. In order to try and avoid air conditioning repair during a heatwave, you get your AC tuned up in the spring before you start using it heavily. In order to enjoy the holidays with a working furnace, you schedule heating tune-ups in the fall. Or at least–you should be. Let’s go over the link between tune-ups and how they can prevent repairs.
