So why do it?
Performing regular routine maintenance allows your system to work at peak efficiency year in and year out – and saves you money by reducing your power costs!
A system that is maintained on a regular basis will also experience considerably fewer breakdowns, reducing the need for costly, unnecessary repairs.
Here are some reasons why it’s important to maintain your heating and cooling system:
- Extending the life of your unit – When you unit is properly maintained, you can add several years to the life of your air conditioning system.
- Ensuring your warranty is protected – Most manufacturers require routine maintenance in order to validate the warranty of the unit. Without regular maintenance, you may be voiding your warranty! Routine maintenance will protect you from major system repairs and protect your manufacturer’s warranty, so if you do have a problem you’ll still be covered!
- Ensuring consistent air temperatures throughout your home or office – If the Heating, Ventilation Air Conditioning (HVAC) unit is not running properly it may be working too hard, resulting in inconsistent air temperatures and reduced comfort.
- Reducing your bills, and saving you money – Your heating and cooling system becomes less efficient and reliable as it accumulates dust and dirt throughout the year – which costs you money in increased utility and repair bills. In fact, as much as half of your energy used in your home goes to heating and cooling. It stands to reason that making smart decisions regarding your heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) system can have a large effect on your utility bills.
- Making sure all the parts move the way they should – Part of your yearly inspection involves lubricating all moving parts in your system. Parts that lack lubrication cause resistance in motors and increase the amount of electricity you use. This resistance can also cause equipment to wear out more quickly, requiring more frequent repairs or replacements.
- Getting the best Airflow – Another part of routine system maintenance is inspecting the fan components, cleaning and adjusting them. Doing so on a regular basis helps to insure proper airflow for greater comfort levels.
