The clever homeowner takes advantage of any and every opportunity to plan ahead and save money over time. Did you know that one of the most under-utilized tools in home development is your annual HVAC inspection? It’s true! In fact, most people don’t even know how to use inspections correctly. Follow these three tips, and you’ll quickly rise above other homeowners!
Pro Tip #1: Be Proactive, Not Reactive
Most homeowners take their HVAC system for granted, and only schedule an inspection reactively when they suffer an emergency. They only take action during emergencies, typically during the summer and there isn’t time to weigh different options. The savvy consumer however, knows to schedule an HVAC inspection once every year or two. This practice prevents the majority of emergencies and expands your list of options when it comes to repairs or part replacement.
Pro Tip #2: Ask Your Questions
Every time you schedule an inspection, you gain another opportunity to access professional insight from your local HVAC technician. Start asking questions! “When will this part of my system need replacement?” “How can I save on monthly energy costs?” Your technician is a valuable source of information about the latest efficiency technology, such as smart thermostats or ambient air heat pumps.
Pro Tip #3: Start Planning Expenses Now
Remember, the majority of homeowners don’t plan their investments until an emergency comes along. Your family, on the other hand, can start saving now so you will have access to more (and better) options when it’s time to replace an important part of your HVAC system. You’ll be amazed how much money intelligent investment saves in the long run. All you need to get started is a little insight into your system from your local HVAC technician.
