If you ask any expert, the yearly maintenance for most types of HVAC units is a pretty big deal. Not only is the risk quite pronounced if you avoid annual maintenance, but most units will also operate less efficiently as time goes by and use up a greater amount of fuel or energy. Having Denver AC repair done in early Spring is recommended, as well as furnace repair in early Fall.
It doesn’t necessarily matter what type of HVAC you own, since some tasks, like cleaning the ducts, will be required every year regardless. When the ducts gather too much dust and dirt, the transfer of heat no longer works properly, and no matter how powerful or efficient your unit might be, it will still need to produce more heat to get the job done.
The biggest reason why annual maintenance is needed is to avoid the risk that the unit might break down completely when you need it the most. This usually happens in harsh winter conditions, when the HVAC has been working overtime for quite some time.
There were many cases in the past when homeowners wanted to save a few dollars by avoiding maintenance, and they ended up having to pay a much greater amount on HVAC repairs – not to mention that they’ve also exposed themselves to the cold for at least a day or two, before the unit was brought back online. To avoid all that, it’s definitely worth paying for annual maintenance.
