If you’re having trouble remembering, it’s probably time to call Dixon Energy. We’ve kept HVAC systems humming in Morris, Somerset, Union, and southern Sussex Counties for decades. We know from experience that HVAC service is crucial and how often you should have it done.

How often should I service my heating and cooling systems?

Generally speaking, you should have your heating and cooling equipment serviced once a year. There are occasions when you can get away with a less frequent tune-up, like when your home sits vacant for part of the year and your system doesn’t need to run as often.

Why is HVAC service important?

HVAC service is like a check-up for your heating and cooling equipment. It’s an opportunity for our technicians to see how your equipment is doing. We can clean and calibrate anything that needs it and confirm how efficiently your system is running.

There are some significant benefits to regular HVAC service, including:

Overall, the benefits of regular HVAC service are well worth the cost of a yearly tune-up.

When is the best time to schedule HVAC service?

The best time to get a system serviced is when you aren’t using it.

Consequently, the winter is an excellent time to have your air conditioning serviced, and the summer is a good time to service your furnace or boiler. Maintenance doesn’t “wear off.” You can rest easy knowing you’ve already taken care of your routine maintenance well before your equipment needs to click on.

That said, if you’ve neglected maintenance for your heating system, don’t hesitate to arrange heating service in the winter. It’s better to get it done than to face a system failure instead.
