The maintenance you do today impacts the future of your home, whether you realize it or not. This is especially true when it comes to your home’s heating systems.

Here are five benefits of seasonal preventative maintenance, according to Warner Service of Frederick, Maryland.

Lower Energy Bills

One of the worst parts about the winter season is seeing an increase in heating costs. In fact, the average household sees a nearly 30 percent increase during the winter compared to other seasons.

Thankfully, common HVAC maintenance procedures like checking airflow and regularly changing out filters increase energy efficiency by up to 15 percent. This directly translates to a lower electric or natural gas bill for you and a warm, comfortable home for your family during the winter.

Eliminate Surprise Repair And Replacement Costs

The last thing you want to spend your hard-earned money on is unexpected repair and replacement bills. Maintaining the HVAC system eliminates the need for sudden repairs and ensures the heating system continues to perform well. Instead of dealing with a last-minute heating problem, keep up regular maintenance tasks and eliminate the possibility of a pricey bill in the future.

Optimal Heating Function During Cold Weather

In Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, and West Virginia, it’s possible for ice and snow to strike at nearly any time during the winter. One benefit of regular HVAC maintenance on your home is that the heating systems continue to work well during cold weather.

Nobody wants to deal with an unexpected heat pump problem in the middle of an ice storm or wake up during the holidays to discover the hot water heater went out.

Less Allergen And Pathogen Exposure

Another valuable benefit of preventative maintenance on the heating system is a decrease in allergen and pathogen exposure by changing out the air filters monthly. This basic HVAC maintenance task is the easiest way to improve your family’s health, and stocking up on air filters when they’re on sale or in bulk is too easy. It makes life easier and safer for your family.

Retain Resale Value In Your Home

Most real estate agents tell you that home maintenance (or lack thereof) has a strong impact on the resale value of the home. Keeping the heating systems in top condition assists in retaining a high future sales price. As a homeowner, you should always keep this important consideration in mind, even if you don’t have plans to sell in the near future.
