The Consequences of Ignoring Regular HVAC Maintenance

HVAC MaintenanceMany of us don’t pay much attention to our heating and cooling system until there’s an issue. We take them for granted, simply assuming they’ll continue to keep us comfortable throughout the year. However, it’s extremely important that you have regular HVAC maintenance performed by a professional. If you don’t, sooner or later you’re going to have to deal with a problem that will not only be extremely inconvenient, but also potentially very expensive. These are just some of the risks you take by not having your system maintained.

Energy Waste

Failing to have HVAC maintenance performed at least once a year is just like throwing money out of your windows. Systems can easily become clogged with dirt and debris that rob them of their efficiency, forcing them to work harder to keep you warm in winter and cool during the summer. The harder they have to work, the more energy they consume – and your bill will be unnecessarily high each month as a result.


Not only will you be paying too much for your energy bill each month, you’ll also be at risk of needing expensive repairs. Regular maintenance can uncover minor issues before they turn into major problems.

Safety Issues

If you have a gas furnace and you don’t have it checked regularly, you could have a potentially deadly problem on your hands such as a cracked heat exchanger, which would allow carbon monoxide to seep into your home. Please don’t let this happen to you.

Reduced Lifespan

Would you drive your car 50,000 miles without getting the oil changed? Of course not. If you did, that car wouldn’t last very long. It’s the same principle with a heating and cooling system. Having it checked on a regular basis can help add years to its lifespan.

People who ignore regular HVAC maintenance do so at their own risk. Don’t be one of them. Schedule your maintenance today by calling Metro Express Service at 972-263-2500 or contacting us online.
