How Often Should I Have My HVAC Inspected?
Your HVAC plays an integral role in heating and cooling your home or business, and it’s necessary for this vital piece of equipment to be maintained throughout the year to keep it in good condition. The better maintained your HVAC is, the fewer repairs and maintenance you’ll have to do for it over the long run. Additionally, a well-maintained HVAC has a longer average lifespan than those that aren’t maintained, which results in lower costs at the end of the day.
While you probably know that your HVAC should be inspected by a professional at some point, you came to this blog to figure out how often that should be, and we have an answer for you: every 6 months. You may have seen that your HVAC unit only needs to be inspected once a year, but it’s best practice to have it inspected every 6 months - once in the spring to check your cooling system and once in the fall to check your heating system. Let us explain.
Getting your HVAC inspected, serviced, and maintained before you start heavily using one system or the other will minimize your chances of running into serious problems with your unit. By having a professional inspect and perform routine maintenance on your unit before you start kicking it into high gear, you start off the season knowing exactly what the current status of your HVAC unit is and how up to date everything is. This puts you in a good position to proceed with heavily using your heating or cooling system for the upcoming seasons with peace of mind.
However, if something does come up after you get your HVAC inspected, you can get the problem looked at with a fresh slate, knowing exactly what your last inspection within the past six months showcased about your unit.
While you may be able to do some HVAC maintenance on your own, like changing the filter (especially if you have a filter you need to change every month), it’s often easier to trust your HVAC maintenance and inspection in professional hands.
