Many people I know have had terrible experiences when it comes to their HVAC systems. One of my friends, in particular, can tell you horror stories about endless repairs and expenses. I feel fortunate that I’m not one of those people. I don’t want to wish ill on myself by saying that, but ever since I moved into my house I haven’t had any issues with my HVAC system. I know I could be better about how often I get the system looked at, but, doing that might change my luck. Right now I only have an HVAC specialist out if something goes wrong, and I know I’m not supposed to be like that. I think the smart thing to do is to have routine maintenance done on the HVAC unit at least once a year. I think that in my head, but in practice I find that I’m spoiled by our good luck in the HVAC department.because I haven’t experienced any issues to date, my mind wonders if I just don’t mess with it, if it will stay that way. Obviously, this doesn’t make any logical sense and I know that I need to be more diligent about maintenance. I don’t want to get to the point where everything starts going wrong at once. Especially since winter weather isn’t too far away. I don’t want my heating to fail right in the middle of a cold snap when I need it most! I’ve had good luck, yes, but if I don’t start being proactive, I’m afraid things will turn. I don’t want the tide of good fortune to change and leave me up the creek without a paddle!
