If one thing holds true for our industry, it is this: HVAC maintenance is crucial. Such a simple phrase, to be sure, but here’s the thing – it is a vast understatement.

The importance of regular and effective maintenance can never be overstated. It’s one of the gospels we preach here at Mast Heating & Cooling, and it’s one of the reasons that so many people in the Holland and Zeeland areas turn to us for all of their HVAC needs.

Regular maintenance is perhaps more important in our area because we get the wicked winters, the hot blistering summers, and everything in between. This means your system gets good workouts in both heating and cooling, so keeping all the equipment in tip-top shape will prevent HVAC breakdowns and keep your system ready to answer the call.

The benefits of heating maintenance are many, but here are the top reasons you should make sure to have those regular tune-ups and/or repairs made:

  1. Improved energy efficiency. Over time, filters become clogged, electrical connections loosen or fray and parts become dry and in need of lubrication. Regular maintenance resolves all of these issues, which allows your system to operate more smoothly and efficiently, saving you money on your energy bills.
  2. Longer equipment life. Most heating systems will last 10-15 years, depending on the quality of the equipment, usage and … maintenance. Taking care of your system will definitely result in a longer lifespan.
  3. Less costly repairs. System breakdowns occur at the worst times and often will result in costly repairs, or even replacement that could have been avoided or delayed with regular maintenance.
  4. Peace of mind. If a heating system is not functioning properly, it could result in a number of safety issues, most notably carbon monoxide (CO) leaks. As part of our heating system maintenance, our certified technicians will check CO levels and make sure your family is safe.
  5. Improved comfort. If you are dealing with hot and cold spots in your home, that means your comfort level is probably taking a hit. Regular checkups and tune-ups will help identify those problem spots and what needs to be done to fix them.
