Many homeowners don’t give so much attention to their air conditioning and heating systems, until it’s too late. Did you know that 9 out of 10 HVAC system failures are caused by dirt, rust, and lack of proper airflow? Just as a car needs oil changes and a tune-up every now and then to run efficiently, your HVAC system also needs periodic maintenance inspections to ensure that it is running most efficiently in cooling and heating your home. A preventative maintenance helps you stay on top of repairs and part replacements so you can prevent equipment failure before it ever happens.
BENEFITS OF AN HVAC PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE
Improved Efficiency - As your HVAC system runs, it accumulates dust and dirt in key areas that affect its efficiency, like the condensing coils and air filters. Left unchecked, your A/C system can lose 5 percent of its operating efficiency each year, resulting in higher energy bills.
System Longevity - A low efficiency unit would also make the system work harder just so it will be able to achieve the desired temperature. If this happens on a constant basis, it would shorten the lifespan of your HVAC system. Industry studies have proven that regular maintenance increases a system’s life by 30 percent. On average, you can get six more years of operation with regular professional maintenance.
Reduces Repair Needs – A well-maintained unit is more likely to last longer than the one that’s left neglected. Having a routine maintenance helps identify worn-out or faulty parts to be repaired or replaced before they affect other parts of the system. More than 40 percent of service calls for repairs can be avoided with regular maintenance.
