Why is HVAC Maintenance an Investment Rather Than an Expense?
Paying for a service technician to come to your home twice each year for HVAC maintenance could seem like a superfluous expense. You might assume that since the system is running fine, it will stay that way. However, HVAC maintenance is a cost-effective way to assure your comfort and safety. Consider these three reasons you should think of it as an investment rather than an expense.
Reduce Monthly Utility Bills
You probably don’t want to pay any more than necessary for heating and cooling your home. If you’d rather use your money for other things, schedule a springtime and an autumn tuneup for your HVAC system. A well-maintained heating and cooling system costs 15% less to operate. That’s savings in your pocket every month.
Avoid Costly Repairs
Coming home or waking up to a broken air conditioner during a summer heat wave isn’t just a disruption of your comfort. You might have to wait for a repair or pay extra fees for an emergency service call. Keeping up with regular HVAC maintenance allows our service technicians to find worn parts before they fail. Up to 85% of heating and cooling system breakdowns can be avoided with preventive maintenance.
Extend System’s Lifespan
A typical air conditioning system has a lifespan of about 12 years. Heat pumps last for around 10 years, and furnaces have a lifespan of around 15 years. Buying a new system is a significant expense. HVAC maintenance by our skilled service technicians could extend your system’s lifespan by several years.
Your home’s heating and cooling system is a complicated setup. Licensed and certified service technicians have the knowledge and experience to identify worn parts and potential issues that could lead to a comfort disruption or sudden breakdown of the unit. Keeping up with routine maintenance for your HVAC system will save you hundreds of dollars each year. For more information or to schedule an HVAC maintenance visit, get in touch with E.M.
