Which do you prefer: Periodic maintenance of an item or waiting until it fails and you need major repairs, maybe even a total replacement?
We could be talking about cars or dental care, but we’re talking about the equipment that heats, cools and ventilates your home or business.
Would you rather go through annual or semi-annual checkups of your HVAC system or wait until it beaks down?
The answer depends on your budget and your personality.
We recommend the maintenance approach, which keeps your system humming and almost always avoids the system crashing, often at the most inopportune time.
We’re not the only ones who feel that way. In his award-winning book The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, author Stephen Covey argues that it’s better to be proactive and eliminate problems before they appear.
“Be Proactive is about taking responsibility for your life. Proactive people recognize that they are "response-able,” he wrote.
Maintenance makes sense
Suppose you’re a homeowner and the heat dies. You’re uncomfortable and your spouse and children -- even the dog -- are glaring at you.
“Do something,” they say.
Naturally, you want to fix the problem, and you wish you had taken advantage of the maintenance opportunity that probably would have averted this issue three months ago.
Or you’re a landlord and your tenants are up in arms about the cold in their units because the boiler died. And the tenants vow to stop paying rent until they’re warm again!
Or you run a business, the air conditioner conks out in the middle of July and your employees are grumpy and nowhere near as productive as you wish. Oh, your customers and vendors aren’t happy, either. They wonder if you paid the utility bill.
All are good examples of why you need to make maintenance a part of your budget. Many of these breakdowns, incidentally, can be due to something as minor as a dirty filter or a defective part we would have fixed during a scheduled maintenance check.
A big added benefit for you: Maintenance gives you peace of mind, knowing you did everything possible to provide a safe, comfortable environment for your family, your tenants or your employees.
