What Happens If I Don’t Get My HVAC System Regularly Serviced?

What Happens if I Don't Get My System Tuned Up Regularly?

During the hot summer months, an air conditioned home is one of the simplest, yet greatest, luxuries in North Carolina. And, in the winter, a warm and cozy house is the equivalent of a comforting hug. We would never want anything to jeopardize either of these things for you or your family.

Because Morris Heating & Cooling is a family-owned business that cares about your family just as we care about our own, we want your HVAC system to function optimally all throughout the year, without any hiccups – whether those hiccups are minor or major. And the best way to make that happen is by signing up for our precision tune-up agreement, an agreement that promises that we’ll come out and do a routine service check for your HVAC system every six months to make sure that everything is running as it should.
Skipping the precision tune-up agreement

While Morris Heating & Cooling tries to make everything extra convenient for our customers (we do offer 24/7 service, after all), we prefer to be proactive rather than reactive. The reason why we lean towards proactiveness is because the consequences of not getting your HVAC system serviced every six months are too notable to ignore.

Here’s what could happen if you forego your HVAC routine maintenance:

You Might Notice Higher Utility Bills

When you skip regular HVAC maintenance, you’ll likely notice higher utility bills – no matter the season. While a healthy air conditioner and a healthy furnace have no issues cooling and heating your home, respectively, a system that has gone without maintenance for a while needs to work harder and, therefore, has a tougher time cooling and heating your home.

This extra work means more money out of your pocket regarding your utility bill. There could be many reasons behind why your HVAC system isn’t functioning properly, and it takes a professional to diagnose those reasons – which is exactly why we offer service every six months.

You’ll Have Low-Quality Indoor Air

You might not know it, but your HVAC system does a lot more than heat up and cool down your house. It actually plays a big role in removing contaminants and odors, all the while keeping your indoor air healthy and clean. If someone in your family has asthma, allergies, or other respiratory issues, clean indoor air is crucial.

A common issue that non-serviced HVAC units have are dirty air filters. If your air filters are clogged, they aren’t doing their job to remove dirty and polluted air from inside your home and, instead, that’s the air that your family is breathing.

Loud, Irritating Sounds

Your HVAC system should run so silently that you forget it’s there. You might hear a slight hum when it kicks on, but that’s about it.

When you skip a service appointment, or a few service appointments, the sounds that your HVAC system makes will start to become noticeable – so noticeable that they might just interrupt your concentration as you move throughout your day.

Moving Part Breakdown

Your HVAC system functions like any other machine. Without adequate maintenance, it’s much more likely to break down. It requires regular tune-ups, just like a car, to keep it from experiencing errors.

There are a lot of moving parts that keep your HVAC system functioning optimally. The more you use it, the likelier it is to malfunction with all of those moving parts working together.

If you have the AC or furnace on all day, you should most definitely sign up for Morris Heating & Cooling’s precision tune-up agreement so you’ll have guaranteed maintenance from our trained team of professionals every six months.

Failure to Heat and Cool

There’s almost nothing more annoying than being sweaty in your home during the summer, or shivering in your home over the winter. In order to prevent this from happening, make sure that your HVAC system is working as it should.

If, instead, you neglect your HVAC system, there might come a day when warm or cool air stops coming out of your vents. And, even though Morris Heating & Cooling offers our services on a 24/7 basis, you probably don’t want to be scrambling to contact us while feeling uncomfortably warm or cold.

You’ll Experience Costly Repairs

The main reason that people don’t sign up for our precision tune-up agreement is because they think they’re saving money when, in reality, that couldn’t be further from the truth.

Proactive homeowners know that, by investing in our precision tune-up agreement, they’re preventing the astronomical amount of money it would cost to remediate major and unexpected breakdowns. With our six-month service checks, nothing will catch you off guard.

Choosing Morris Heating & Cooling

The best time to get your HVAC system serviced is before extreme temperatures hit, like during the spring and fall. To avoid these detrimental consequences, talk to Morris Heating & Cooling about signing up for our Precision Tune-Up Agreement today.
