It’s tempting for Bath, Pennsylvania, homeowners to ignore HVAC concerns, but it can cause you a larger headache later. When your system is acting up, however small, it tends to symbolize bigger problems ahead. Ignoring heating or cooling issues could lead to major breakdowns and safety concerns for your family.

Utility Spikes

If something is up with your HVAC system, it often reflects in your utility bills. People avoid calling their HVAC contractor mostly because of the costs associated with repairs. What you might not realize is you are going to be spending that money month after month when your utility bills spike. Ignoring a problem won’t make it go away when it comes to your heating and cooling system, and it’s not going to save you money either.

Emergency Maintenance

In all likelihood, if there is a problem with your HVAC system, it could eventually result in a total breakdown. When your system breaks down, it tends to do it at the worst possible moment. Most HVAC companies charge a premium for emergency maintenance, and those rates go even higher if it happens at night or on the weekend. Delaying the inevitable with your HVAC system just puts you in a place to incur high costs for emergency maintenance.

Safety Concerns

Your heating and cooling system is crucial in the coldest winter months and the hottest summer months. If your system breaks down in the dead of winter or the heat of summer, your safety could be at risk. A home without heat or with a broken furnace is susceptible to frozen pipes, carbon monoxide concerns, and poor indoor air quality. A home without AC or ventilation is sensitive to mold, high humidity, and poor IAQ as well. It’s not worth the risk to let your HVAC system run like normal when things aren’t working properly.
