One of the best parts about living in a region where the temperature is moderate all year round is the fact that my HVAC system doesn’t carry a lot of stress.
There isn’t one season that is more drastic than the other and that benefits us greatly.
For example, the summers aren’t extremely hot and humid, forcing our air conditioner to run aggressively. The same can be said about the winter season. Since neither our furnace or air conditioner runs aggressively to keep our house comfortable, I feel like our HVAC maintenance is so much less. We still like to have our HVAC system serviced twice per year by an HVAC company in order to make sure that everything is running smoothly and there aren’t any unwanted problems. Doing this gives us peace of mind. Besides having our HVAC system serviced twice per year, we experience no other issues with running the air conditioner or furnace. I feel like this is a huge blessing because I have a lot of family members who live up North where the temperature is extreme during the winter months and they are constantly experiencing issues with their furnace. They have their HVAC system serviced by an HVAC company twice per year like we do and their HVAC equipment isn’t that much older than ours, but they still experience issues. I believe their issues come from having to heat their house for longer periods of time and at an aggressive rate. They are constantly battling winter snow storms and freezing temperatures and their poor furnace is constantly trying to keep up.
