While more people in the U.S. have heating and cooling systems than ever before, few of them schedule the recommended annual maintenance for their HVAC systems. Many people even view HVAC maintenance as an unnecessary expense, but we know better.
Here are a few ways that regular maintenance saves you money in the long run:
- Reduces Repair Costs- Preventive maintenance involves cleaning your condenser coils, changing your air filter, and inspecting other components like valves and electrical connections. These simple tasks keep your system in good condition and allow you to catch problems early before they get worse and cost more to fix.
- Lowers Energy Bills- Built-up dirt and worn-out parts cause your system to function inefficiently, meaning you’ll end up paying more for your heating and cooling than you should. Because routine maintenance addresses these problems, it helps your system to perform optimally and saves you up to 30% on your energy bills.
- Increases Your System’s Lifespan- HVAC maintenance is a minor expense, especially when you compare it to the cost of a new system. And since maintenance keeps your system in working condition for much longer, you can get your money’s worth out of your current system.
- Keeps Warranty Valid- A manufacturer’s warranty covers the cost of some faulty parts in a given period, but it’s usually applicable only if you get a professional to maintain your system. Getting maintenance means you won’t have to pay out of your own pocket to fix or replace those parts.
