One of the best and easiest ways to ensure consistently low heating and cooling bills — as well as adding many faithful and functional years of service from your HVAC system — is to simply make and keep bi-annual service and maintenance appointments with a reputable local HVAC technician.

As spring and fall tend to be the seasons in which your HVAC system is least likely to be working overtime, these seasons tend to be the best times to schedule service. The truth of the matter is that as long as you have your air conditioning system serviced once a year and your heating system serviced once a year, it doesn’t matter when. Preferably you would have them done about six months apart.

Be sure to schedule your HVAC maintenance appointments well in advance, and see if any local HVAC technicians in your area offer discounts for customers that are on a regular schedule for bi-annual service of their HVAC systems.

It is difficult to stress enough how important it is to keep these bi-annual maintenance schedules faithfully, as there can be many ugly consequences to forgetting to do so. Besides the obvious consequences of higher heating and cooling bills due to a system that has to work far harder than it needs to, many HVAC system warranties come with clauses that demand regular maintenance as a condition of continued warranty coverage. As the old saying goes, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
