Your heating, venting and air conditioning systems will give you long years of good service if you take care of them. Having them serviced at regular intervals will greatly prolong their life. Major components such as, furnaces, central air conditioners, heat pumps and boilers require annual maintenance checks. Hire a skilled technician to come to your home to inspect, clean and adjust your unit to keep it running efficiently. A comparatively low-priced professional evaluation can save you long term costs, by identifying problems when they are still small, and by maximizing the efficiency of the units to save on energy bills. The heating, venting and air conditioning distribution system; the ducts and pipes that distribute heat and air to your home, should also be checked periodically.
