I think cats have it a bit easier when it comes to planning for their heating and cooling needs during the year: they don’t really care. Was their food put down? Fine, then everything’s great. Sometimes I really envy cats for that sort of attitude. I have a much harder time keeping cool when the heat rises (it involves panting, a lot of it) and so I’m concerned that the humans around me have planned ahead to see that the air conditioning system lasts all summer. My black coat makes it easier to get through the winter, but I want my human companions to be happy during that time as well with a heater that keeps them cozy.
For these reasons (and because somebody told me I needed to get off my favorite couch and do some work) I’m here to explain to you why scheduling regular preventive maintenance for your home heating and cooling is so important. I’ve come up with 8 reasons, but with my short attention span (tennis ball!) I’ll only be able to do one at a time. Here goes…
Reason #1: It’s an inexpensive investment
Human money confuses me, but I do know it takes more money to fix an air conditioner or heater over and over again, a couple times a year, than it does to have a technician make annual visits to a home for maintenance that will prevent future repairs. And this regular maintenance saves money in other ways as well: the HVAC system will work more efficiently and cost less to run thanks to routine cleaning and tune-ups, and some equipment will have its warranty voided if it doesn’t receive semi-annual maintenance. All around, it’s smart to put a small investment into maintenance in order to prevent other expensive problems.
I’m going back to the couch. Somebody better not have taken my favorite spot while I was gone.
