What do maintenance agreements have to do with my energy bills?
Maintenance agreements and your utility bills have more in common than you might think. If you’re looking to improve your energy efficiency, don’t dismiss regular maintenance. There are so many ways it can affect your monthly bills. Here are just 3 of them:
1. Improved Airflow
One of the main causes of reduced efficiency is airflow issues. One of the primary causes of airflow issues is having dirty or blocked air filters. Regular maintenance will ensure that your air filter is checked and changed regularly. This will help keep the air flowing properly which will help your HVAC run with less effort and use less energy, resulting in lower utility bills.
2. Keep It Clean
A clean machine is a happy machine and a happy machine is an efficient machine. This is totally true when it comes to your heating system. When parts get dirty there is extra friction, and when there is friction, the unit uses excessive energy to do what it needs to do. Regular maintenance includes cleaning and lubricating moving parts and components. Your HVAC system will run smoothly and use less energy.
3. Improved Performance
If you have parts or components that are starting to wear out or are malfunctioning in some way, you may not know it by the temperature in your home, but it will make your system work harder to do the same job. When your HVAC has to work harder it uses more electricity, which raises your utility bills. When your heat is running smoothly it will also be running at its most efficient. Regular maintenance will ensure it’s running at its peak.
Instead of worrying about your utility bills and the amount of energy you’re using, do something about it with regular maintenance. For more information on the right maintenance agreement for you, contact the team at H.H. Hovey Heating and Cooling by calling 336-768-2703 or by clicking here.
