In my experience, not everyone thinks of their home the same way. Some people see their home simply as a place they live their lives. I personally am in a different boat. For my preference, I see my home as an investment in my retirement. Because of this, I am very preoccupied with every aspect of my home’s cleanliness and maintenance. I can be a little bit over the top at times, and sure enough my wife Trisha lets me know. Although my obsessive tendencies tend to drive my wife nuts, she can at least see some of the upside. As is, even more than myself, she loves having a reliable and fully efficient air conditioner for the summer. As well, she feels just the same about our furnace when it comes to the winter season too. Of course, with how much time I put into our home, our HVAC system is going to be running in top shape. To help keep everything in working order, I signed up for an annual HVAC service plan. Thanks to the annual HVAC service plan both my wife and myself can rest assured each year our heating and cooling equipment will run reliably, especially when it is needed the most. The HVAC service technician is extremely helpful too, as he gives us energy saving tips that help us save even more money throughout the year. One example is his instructions on when we should replace the air filter. Being that we had a larger house with several kids and pets, I had no idea that I should be changing our air filters out more often. Either way, thanks to our local HVAC company, keeping up with my home’s heating and cooling is a breeze.
