What’s the best way to get the most life out of your heating and cooling equipment? The answer is preventative HVAC maintenance. A simple investment of time and money can keep your home comfortable and your equipment costs to a minimum.
Here are a few of the top reasons why you need to invest in preventive maintenance for your HVAC system:
- Maintenance costs are small in comparison to replacement costs. Let’s say you spend $250 or $300 a year on maintaining your home’s HVAC system. Compared to the thousands you might spend on replacing a system, those maintenance costs are quite reasonable.
- Routine maintenance is often tied to your HVAC system warranties. All new systems come with a warranty with certain provisions. If your system isn’t properly maintained, many companies will not honor the warranty if your system breaks down.
- System breakdowns are expensive and a real hassle. Let’s say your A/C breaks down in the middle of a summer holiday weekend when you have a house full of guests. You’ll be paying a premium price for the repair service. Plus, your family and guests won’t enjoy being hot and sweaty in the meantime.
- Your system can tell you if a larger problem is brewing. When an HVAC technician inspects your system, he’ll run a calibration test. If something is not right, he may recommend a preventative repair that will save you time and money in the long run.
- Preventative maintenance can keep energy costs down. A poorly maintained HVAC system can have multiple issues causing your system to run inefficiently. The longer you go without maintenance, the more inefficient it’ll get.
Preventative HVAC maintenance is a smart move to make if you want to get the most efficiency out of your system. For more information on how you can prolong the life of your heating and cooling system, contact Powers Heating & Cooling in Peachtree City.
