Preventative Maintenance

Since many minor air conditioning and heating system problems lead to other more expensive repairs, all problems should be resolved promptly. Because many small problems go unnoticed, routine system checkups by an expert are vital. A typical air conditioner and heating system runs enough hours in one year to experience wear and tear equal to what a car might experience in traveling 75,000 miles. Some heating and air technicians claim that half of all emergency service calls could be avoided through routine service. Routine safety checks on gas systems are especially important; each year many people in the U.S. die from carbon monoxide poisoning. Regular service can also eliminate the need for a contractor during peak seasons, such as the first hot spell of the summer, when good contractors are in high demand.
