Maintenance agreements sometimes get a bad rap. The truth is that maintenance agreements can save you money, save on energy use, and even save your summer. Here are the 3 facts about HVAC preventative maintenance you’ve been looking for:
How Preventative Maintenance Saves You Money:
Have you ever had to call for emergency service on anything in your home when it stops working? Not only do you pay the off-hours fee, but you pay a pretty penny for parts and labor. When you have a preventative maintenance plan in place for your HVAC system, you know your system is getting inspected, tested, calibrated, and cleaned twice a year. When regular maintenance is done, many times HVAC technicians will catch developing issues before they become showstoppers. These issues can then be fixed, preventing breakdowns and expensive repairs.
How Preventative Maintenance Saves Energy:
A heating and cooling system that is running properly will use less energy than one that is dirty or has minor issues. Even if those issues aren’t impacting performance, as far as you can tell, friction from dirt and compromised performance from unseen problems make your system work harder than it should, using more energy and costing you more on your energy bills. Regular maintenance can prevent both of these issues.
How Preventative Maintenance Can Save Your Summer:
It’s hot out! And it’s not getting cooler anytime soon. If your air conditioner goes on the blink in the middle of a hot, humid night or weekend, it can wreck your plans…especially if you have to wait for repairs. Preventative maintenance can help you avoid breakdowns that put a wrench in your summer plans.
