When you own a home, there are many unexpected expenses that pop up more regularly than you’d like. To save money, you may try to cut corners and avoid spending money in areas where it isn’t absolutely necessary. HVAC checkups are one item where you shouldn’t skimp. At Apollo Heating and Air Conditioning, we’ve seen many times where homeowners have avoided regular checkups and later wished they hadn’t. We want to advise you against making the same mistake. Check out these 5 reasons why HVAC checkups are definitely worth the money.

Avoid Stress

No matter the time of year, your HVAC system is a regular part of life if you live in Minneapolis. The winters are harsh, and the summers are hot enough where if you don’t have a working air conditioner, you’re not a happy camper. Unfortunately, your HVAC system doesn’t care how extreme the weather is when it decides to break down.

You don’t have to worry that it might break down in the dead of winter or in the heat of summer if it is regularly maintained. Not only would an unexpected breakdown cause extra stress, but you never know how soon you’ll be able to get a professional to your home during the busy season. You shouldn’t have to be uncomfortable in your own home!

Save Money

It may seem counterintuitive, but spending the small amount to get an HVAC tune-up at least annually will save you money in the long run. Our technicians are trained to pay attention to every detail to make sure your HVAC system is well-equipped to carry you through the season without any issues. You can be confident that when taking the time to schedule preventative maintenance, the rest of the time in your home will be just as warm or as cool as you need it to be.

Extend Your HVAC System’s Life

It’s no shocker that a full replacement of your air conditioner and heater can be pretty pricey. It’s a big investment, so why not help your system last to its full life expectancy and beyond? With regular checkups and routine maintenance, you will spend much less money on emergency repairs and you can have time to plan for a replacement when the time does come. HVAC systems don’t last forever, but with the right care, it might seem like they do!

It Fits Your Schedule

Just like avoiding stress, being able to schedule HVAC checkups when you want them allows you to take control of your schedule and make your HVAC work for you instead of the other way around. You are able to look at the time you have free and schedule a checkup at your convenience.

Ensure Safety

You put your family’s safety above all else, and scheduling regular HVAC checkups is a great way to do that. Especially if you have a gas heater, it can be potentially very dangerous is not cared for correctly. The technician will check gas levels, ventilation, insulation, ducts, filters, coolant, coils, and much more. You can rest easy knowing that with regular checkups, your family will be safe and comfortable at all times.
