"I'll just wait until something happens!" That sounds like a lot of us! But let's look at this, when do things we put off always happen, when we least need them to.

"I'll save money by waiting until something breaks!" Sure, you will save some money right now, but let's compare some problems that would have been eliminated during a preventative maintenance check vs waiting until it’s a problem. One example is a dirty filter which will result in a dirty coil. The combination of these two can shut your system completely down leaving you cold in the middle of the night. During your preventive maintenance, these two things would have been noticed and corrected for free! Another example are clogged drain lines. This can cause major damage to your system and home. Most people are unaware that some furnaces require drainage, resulting in major water damage is those lines are clogged. But that would be taken care during your preventative maintenance! And let us tell you, the cost of these problems is the same as a preventative maintenance plan!
