A system that is not maintained regularly will be more likely to breakdown when you least expect it. That could mean an air conditioner that calls quits on the hottest day of the summer. It also could mean a heater that throws in the towel on one of the chilliest nights of winter.
A maintenance service allows your technician to pinpoint small problems that might require a simple adjustment, cleaning, or part replacement. This can circumvent a problem from evolving into a major and costly breakdown that also sacrifices your comfort.
HVAC Maintenance Saves You Money
Some homeowners make the mistake of thinking they are saving money by skipping regular maintenance on their systems. But what they don’t realize is that it could actually be costing them more in energy costs. A system that is not running at its peak efficiency will use more energy. The result is higher utility bills.
Just the simple act of having your units cleaned will help prevent friction between parts that affects performance. Regular maintenance almost always includes inspecting and either cleaning or replacing the system’s air filters. This helps ensure proper airflow that positively affects your system’s efficiency and the indoor air quality in your home.
Maintenance becomes even more crucial as your HVAC system gets older. It can help your system to maximize its expected lifespan without the need for extensive and expensive repairs. But it can also alert you to when it is time to consider replacing your system. Sometimes it is more cost-efficient to replace an older system than it would be to make an anticipated major repair.
