    HVAC maintenance agreements keep homeowners in and around Brunswick, GA, from suffering in the coldest of winter temperatures. How? They clear up the most common issues causing inefficient heating and cooling performance.

    Dirty Furnace Filters Restrict the Flow of Warm Air

    Changing or cleaning a filter is the easiest thing you can do for your HVAC system, and it’s also one of the most important. Dirty filters restrict air flow, making it hard for your furnace to heat the air in your home. It also forces your unit to use much more energy than normal to create and deliver warm air. Typically, once switched out for a new filter, your furnace efficiency will increase by 5 – 15 percent.

    Failing Sensors Confuse Your Thermostat

    Failing electrical components, like sensors, can fool your furnace into thinking it’s warmer in your home than it really is. This leads to quick system cycling and a need to crank the thermostat. This excess use will wear your furnace out sooner than later, but problems like these are warning signs that you could soon be without heating services. Avoid a breakdown with periodic assessments.

    When you count on a qualified HVAC company to perform your annual HVAC maintenance on a set schedule, you'll receive service you can trust and know exactly what kind of attention your heating and cooling equipment needs when it needs it most. Another benefit is there will be no need to worry you will forget to have your equipment properly maintained. Your HVAC maintenance program will handle all of that for you!
