I know people have a lot of horror stories about their HVAC systems and things going wrong, especially at the worst critical of times. I’m not one of those people. I don’t want to jinx it by saying that, however, ever since I moved into my home I haven’t had any troubles with my heating or cooling system. I know I should be better about how often I get the HVAC system looked at, but, to keep the trend going, however, my parents always told me that “if it’s not broken, don’t try to fix it”. I absolutely don’t have an specialist out unless something goes wrong, and I don’t think that I am supposed to be like that. I think the smart thing to do is to have routine maintenance done on the system at least once a year. I think that in my head, however in practice, I find that I tend to push my luck in the this department. I haven’t had any troubles,and part of me wonders if I just don’t mess with it, if it will stay that way. Obviously, I know better than that. For this reason, it is on my list of things I would like to do, is to get better at having my HVAC system tuned up once a year. I don’t want to get to the point where everything starts going wrong at once. Especially since winter isn’t too far away. I don’t want my furnace to fail in the middle of the night when I need it most! I’ve had really good luck so far but I know if I don’t start being proactive, I may be pushing that luck too far.
