I was seriously considering not having my air conditioning unit serviced this spring.
When I moved into this house three years ago, I was diligent about having my HVAC system serviced by an HVAC company at least twice per year.
I wanted to make sure that I was doing everything in my power to take care of my furnace and air conditioner. I didn’t have any expertise in HVAC systems, so the best way to keep my furnace and air conditioner running efficiently was to let a certified HVAC professional do all the work. While I appreciated everything that the HVAC company did for my HVAC system, I never had any problems with my furnace and air conditioner and I didn’t know if that was due to the HVAC company or luck. The HVAC maintenance wasn’t terribly expensive, but it was still an expense that I didn’t want to spend. This is why I thought that I’d try and skip my HVAC tune up this spring season. In my mind, I thought one HVAC tune up for the year would be fine. A few weeks into running my air conditioner though, I noticed that it wasn’t performing well. My mind began to think about all the horrible things that were going to happen if I didn’t call the HVAC company. An HVAC professional was able to come look at my air conditioner, and he told me that my air filter needed to be replaced. It was congested with dust and pollen, which was causing my AC system to work harder. If I had my HVAC system serviced, I could have avoided it.
