Purchasing an HVAC unit is a big investment, and it can be difficult to see the value in spending more money on preventative HVAC maintenance. At North Macon Heating & Cooling, we provide regular professional maintenance for your AC and heating units, which will save you money in the long run.

Safety & Maintenance Tips

It’s critical that your HVAC unit is cleaned and inspected regularly to keep it running as efficiently as possible and to avoid major breakdowns. Consider the following tips to help keep your unit running smoothly:

  • Replace the filter
  • Clean air vents & ducts
  • Clean the area around your heater
  • Consider a maintenance program

An HVAC unit can easily have an unhealthy buildup of dirt, dust, and mold, especially in the filter and evaporator coils. Research has proven that a dirty and unmaintained unit has to work 20% harder than a well-maintained HVAC unit to cool or heat the same space. Over time, regular HVAC maintenance helps lower your utility bills each month.

Professional Maintenance from North Macon Heating & Cooling

Inspecting parts regularly and making minor replacements when necessary will extend the life of your HVAC unit. How well a unit is taken care of and how efficiently it functions directly correlates with its lifespan.

While preventative measures are crucial, maintaining your unit requires more than simply changing filters. At North Macon Heating & Cooling, we perform several steps in order to ensure the life of your HVAC unit such as inspecting electrical components, checking for leaks or other issues, measuring airflow, and more.
