First, a quick story for today’s edition: My favorite car I ever had was my Toyota Matrix, which I named Josie. I loved that car so much, but I didn’t treat Josie well. Oil changes were done far past when they should have been, and maintenance was an afterthought. My lack of attention cost me one day on the highway, when Josie began to let out a frightening amount of smoke. I barely made it to the breakdown lane!
An important lesson was learned that day: maintenance is the key to preventing a big, expensive mess. That applies not only to cars, but also HVAC systems! Working at Lawrence, I’ve seen what happens when systems aren’t regularly cleaned, and it’s not pretty or cheap. Up to 90% of HVAC system failures can be attributed to lack of maintenance.
Just like a trip to the auto shop, yearly maintenance on your HVAC system includes an inspection, testing, and sometimes repairing or replacing components. And much like the peace of mind you get from driving a freshly approved car, you get the same with an HVAC check-up: you’ll be keeping your home a safe and comfortable place for your loved ones, and your system’s life expectancy will drastically improve. Plus, if it’s running at peak efficiency, you’ll also save money on your electric bill!
Sounds good, right? But we know: life gets in the way, and it’s so easy to forget to make those appointments until it’s too late. That’s why Lawrence offers an Annual Maintenance program; when you enroll, you not only get priority service, but also discounts on repairs and replacement. Reach out to our Service Manager Jackie, and she’ll explain what being a member includes. Be sure to ask about the payment plan (and tell her I sent you!)
Talk to you soon,
