When you need heating and air conditioning repairs, it can seem like a frustrating time. An HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) system rarely breaks down when it is convenient to call a technician, and the sudden unexpected repair costs are certainly unwelcome. The best way to avoid such repair needs from occurring is by getting your system on a regular maintenance schedule. Here’s how a maintenance visit helps your system.
- Improved Efficiency – Annual maintenance can help keep your air conditioning and heating system running more smoothly, decreasing energy use and saving you money. If your air conditioner or heater has worn down or dirty parts, the unit cannot run as efficiently as intended. While any system will lose some efficiency over time, regular maintenance for each system each year may help retain 95% efficiency with a thorough cleaning, adjustment, and inspection.
- Better Performance – A unit that runs more efficiently will also cool or heat the home more quickly, and there will likely be fewer breakdowns over time. If there is a problem with your system, you will find out about it early on, and then you can schedule the necessary repairs on your own time, when it is most convenient.
- Longer Lifespan – If you are on top of repairs and keep your system in good condition through the years, it may even last months or even years longer than it would have. In fact, many manufacturer warranties are void unless you get on a maintenance program.
- Additional Benefits – Finally, many maintenance programs come with additional benefits which can help you to save on repair and labor costs in case anything is in need of professional attention.
