Why Preventive Maintenance Matters
A lot of homeowners don’t want to spend money unless they absolutely have to. But part of the responsibility of being a homeowner is to keep your home safe and comfortable. A properly functioning HVAC system is a must to provide your family a comfortable indoor environment all year round. As such, it is important to have your HVAC system checked and inspected every year.
Let’s take a look at the benefits of preventive maintenance and why it is worth it in the long run.
Avoid big, costly repairs
A well-maintained system is less likely to experience serious problems. During the inspection, the HVAC technician will check various parts of the system to ensure that it’s in good condition. This allows them to catch minor problems before they grow into major ones; hence, preventing breakdown and costly repair services. This gives homeowners peace of mind.
Extend lifespan of your HVAC equipment
Considering the amount of money you have spent on your HVAC system, you want to keep it running for as long as possible. For it to last and function properly, it needs proper care and maintenance.
By hiring an HVAC company to inspect and do maintenance on your system, you can be sure that the HVAC system remains in good repair. It will help keep your home cozy or cool throughout the year and extend the life of your equipment.
Increase energy efficiency
Your HVAC system can be a big energy hog. In fact, as much as half of the energy used in your home goes to cooling and heating. Proper maintenance can go a long way in reducing your energy cost.
Dirty air filters and coils lead to poor airflow. As such, it has to work harder to produce the same amount of heating or cooling a well functioning equipment provides. This is often attributed to an extra 15% in electricity cost.
Keeping your system well maintained will help keep it operating as efficiently as possible. This means less money will be spent on electricity. Carbon Valley Heating and Air’s Safety and Efficiency agreement can help your home run smoothly. Please contact us for more information.
