You also want to make sure your equipment is functioning correctly and catch any problems before they become major expenses. Regular maintenance will often pay for itself in lower repair costs. Lastly, you want to make sure that your heating and cooling system is functioning properly to avoid any safety problems that could endanger your home and family, i.e. loose electrical connections or holes in your system’s heat exchanger can cause a carbon monoxide leak.
