Preventive maintenance is a cost-effective way to keep your heating and cooling system in excellent working order. A well-maintained unit costs less to operate, prolongs the life of equipment and experiences fewer breakdowns. Seasonal tune-ups identify small problems before they become big. A well-maintained unit not only saves money, it keeps you more comfortable throughout the seasons.
Fewer HVAC Repairs
Having a professional heating and air conditioning repair company examine the furnace before first use in the fall and the air conditioner before first use in the spring, keeps your entire system in tip-top shape. Each element of the system, from fans to coils to refrigerant, is checked and adjusted. When a system is tuned regularly, it is less likely to stop working. Fewer repairs save you money.
Lower Fuel Bills
Well-maintained equipment works more efficiently. The average American household spends approximately $2,200 each year on heating and cooling. Seasonal tune-ups lower utility bills by at least 15 percent, saving both energy and money.
Longer Heating & Cooling Equipment Life
An efficient system that needs fewer repairs means longer equipment life. Older models of HVAC equipment typically last between 10 and 15 years. Poorly maintained equipment tends to break more frequently, requiring early replacement of components or an entire system. As long as your equipment keeps you comfortable with moderate fuel use, replacement can be at a time you decide. New systems use up to 40 percent less energy than older ones. Some types, such as geothermal heat pumps, last up to 25 years. If your fuel bills are high, it may be time for an upgrade to save even more.
