It’s easy to let routine maintenance fall to the wayside, especially if your HVAC system is in good working condition. Regular maintenance is a vital part of keeping your home comfortable and ensuring that you find any small problems before they turn into big (expensive) ones. The pros at Patrick’s Heating & Air Conditioning have the experience and knowledge to help you keep your system working well, all year long.
Why Is It Important to Get My HVAC System Serviced?
Getting your HVAC system serviced regularly is good for your home, your budget, and your peace of mind.
- Lower heating and cooling bills. A system that isn’t being maintained properly is less efficient over time, either due to wear and tear on the parts, clogged filters and ductwork, air leaks, or all of the above. Regular maintenance catches these issues before they become bigger problems.
- Extend the life of your HVAC equipment. Having your system maintained and inspected regularly ensures that all of the parts are checked to make sure that they’re working as they should. An experienced technician knows what to look for and can repair or adjust anything that isn’t working as it should.
- Comfort and reliability. The main function of your HVAC system is to keep your family comfortable. A poorly maintained system won’t keep your home as warm or as cool as you’d like it to be, and it’s more likely that the equipment will break down just when you need it most. Regular maintenance ensures that your system is working properly and that any small problems will be less likely to become bigger issues.
How Often Should My HVAC System Be Serviced?
Ideally, your HVAC system should be serviced twice per year – in spring and in fall. Since we use our HVAC systems most during summer and winter to cool and heat our homes, it pays to make sure they’re in good working order before their peak working seasons.

How Much Does It Cost to Service an HVAC System?
An average maintenance visit could cost anywhere from $75 to $200, but that depends on your system and how extensive the work will be. Of course, additional repairs will add to the overall cost of service.
