So it seems we made it thru a milder than usual winter. And to think, you had your furnace tuned up just waiting for an extended cold snap.

What happens now? Do we just click off another year on the life-span of your furnace, or did you gain a little extra credit by not using it quite so much?

Turns out, if your hvac system is on a regular maintenance program, you did both.

First, you win because you had your system tuned up and ready for use. The more attention you pay to the upkeep of your heating and cooling system the better off in the long run that system will be, and the longer it will last.

And B, you win because your system didn't run as much meaning there was less wear and tear on the system itself. It's kinda like parking your car in the garage. If you don't use it as much, but keep it maintained, it will last longer.

So we benefitted from an unlikely win-win.

Isn't it nice that you caught a break for a change?

For now…
