When was the last time you got your HVAC system checked by a professional?

It might have been a while, which is not great, especially if your HVAC system is older.  Home maintenance and care are essential for homeowners, and an HVAC system check is a big part of home maintenance and care.

Let’s discuss some key benefits to help you understand why it is so important.

Benefits of an HVAC System Check

While professional inspections have many benefits, here are the three key benefits of an HVAC system check.

1.      Efficiency

Complex machinery like heating and air conditioning can build up grime, dirt, and dust over time.  This build-up causes the machinery to become inefficient due to improper ventilation and blockage.

There is also a safety issue with the case of build-ups of unwanted materials in the system – furnace Puff Backs.  A puff back is a relatively common issue in homes with furnace-based boilers and happens when the oil or gas in your furnace isn’t ignited immediately.  Gas and oil fumes keep building up in the system while the spark plug or furnace ignition system takes time to catch the fumes.

When the spark eventually reaches the build-up, there is a small “explosion” in the boiler or a backfire.  The explosion forces a burst of soot-saturated air through the ductwork and out of the vents throughout the home.  A similar scenario can happen in homes with baseboard heat rather than forced air systems.

Moreover, improper HVAC ventilation and dirt build-up can also result in mold growth, which is detrimental to your home and the health of your household.  An annual check lets professionals clean the entire system, resulting in greater HVAC efficiency.

2.      Savings

Unmaintained and unchecked HVAC systems run harder and take longer to maintain our home’s temperature, resulting in higher energy bills.  On the other hand, a professionally checked and maintained HVAC system addresses any ongoing efficiency issues, resulting in smoother performance.

A well-maintained HVAC system works efficiently, lowering your energy bills and resulting in long-term savings of hundreds of dollars each year.

3.      Longevity

Machines don’t last forever, but they can last longer than their intended lifespan with proper maintenance and care.  HVAC systems are no different, and an annual professional check allows you to prevent problems and breakdowns that may hinder its lifespan.

Ultimately, your HVAC system lasts longer, giving you more bang for your buck.


Considering the mentioned benefits, checking your HVAC system annually is a no-brainer.  Ideally, you should have the maintenance done before the weather becomes damp or humid since mold growth is a major concern around this time.
