Efficiency Tune-Up for Your Heating and Air Conditioning System

Home » Heating and Air Conditioning Efficiency Tune-Up

As a homeowner, you depend on your heating and air conditioning system year-round. When it’s 30 degrees outside and the windchills drop to single digits, or when the heat index climbs near 100 during summer, you need your system to be in peak condition to keep you and your family comfortable and operating efficiently. To ensure this, HVAC manufacturers and EnergyStar recommend that you have an annual HVAC efficiency tune-up.

Why Do I Need a Heating and Air Conditioning Efficiency Tune-Up?

Just like your car needs regular maintenance, so does your heating and air conditioning system. Over time, dust and debris can build up inside your system. If the coils, drains or filters get clogged, your system can’t operate efficiently and needs to work harder, increasing your energy costs and making it more difficult to achieve the desired temperature in your home. Regular maintenance keeps your HVAC system running better and increases its lifespan by ensuring it won’t wear out from working overtime.

The more time that passes between scheduled maintenance, the greater the risk of a problem requiring repair. With the average HVAC repair costing around $300, pre-season tune-ups make good financial sense.

Don’t wait until your heating and air conditioning system shows signs of problems to get it checked. Let BGE HOME’s trained and licensed technicians identify and address any problems so that your HVAC system keeps working for you when you need it most. Our tune-ups include an efficiency diagnostic test as well as tests and measurements to ensure the safe and proper operation of your unit.

It’s a good idea to have a HVAC efficiency tune-up performed before heating or cooling season so that any problems that are identified can be fixed before the season begins. In addition to the long-term savings, you’ll have peace of mind knowing that your heating and air conditioning system is operating in peak form.
