If you want to get the most out of your major home systems like your HVAC system, water heater, and even your roofing system, then routine maintenance inspections are absolutely essential to protecting these components of your home and ensuring they are functioning properly year after year. You can think of annual home maintenance the same way you think of routine car maintenance—you shouldn’t skip changing your air filters, cleaning your HVAC unit, replacing shingles, patching roof damage, or inspecting your water heater for any issues that could need repair just like you shouldn’t skip oil changes and tire rotations on your car.

Our highly skilled Energy Division technicians have been thoroughly trained to inspect and identify key components of homes to ensure each major system is operating at its maximum potential while also making recommendations for correcting any wear and tear issues that are discovered during our Annual Maintenance Inspection to help you prevent more serious repair issues from occurring.

Why Annual Maintenance Inspections Are So Important

It is easy to say that routine maintenance is important to improve the overall efficiency of your major home systems from year to year. But what does that really mean?

  • Routine maintenance of your HVAC system will help you get the maximum lifespan from your HVAC system by keeping it clean and performing optimally.

  • Maintenance inspections of water heaters can identify components that are loose or worn, check for signs of corrosion or leaks, provide an opportunity to inspect the temperature relief valve, and identify when your water heater may need to be replaced.

  • An annual roof inspection provides an opportunity to check for any signs of leaks and water damage as well as identifying areas that may need to be resealed or reshingled, and provide an estimated lifetime for your current roofing structure.

  • Many manufacturers recognize the important role routine maintenance plays in protecting your unit from major repair issues and breakdowns, so most HVAC and water heater warranties require routine maintenance in order to keep your warranty active.

This means annual maintenance inspections save you money in multiple ways – it reduces your energy costs, minimizes the costs of repairs by catching minor repair issues before they can become major repair issues, and protect your investment by keeping your warranty in effect.
