There is a saying that a small amount of prevention can go a long way to preventing a major problem down the road. The saying holds true for health, vehicles and HVAC systems. Having preventive maintenance can extend the life of your heating and cooling systems and save money on repairs and replacement parts over the life of HVAC systems. Below you will find how preventive maintenance can save you money and why it is important.
Have Your AC’s Refrigerant Levels Checked
You can expect to save money and have greater comfort from an annual preventative maintenance contract from an AC dealer. How exactly will you save money and get more comfort from your system? The answer lies in air conditioning system operation efficiency. With a maintenance program, technicians will routinely clean your air conditioning unit and inspect it. One of the things they will do is check the refrigerant level in the AC unit. Refrigerant is a gas that is vital for proper cooling operation. Too little refrigerant levels or too much will result in ineffective cooling that can lead to a lack of comfort and higher energy bills. During the annual maintenance program technicians will check the refrigerant level and adjust it if necessary so you can stay cool and not have to worry about high energy bills from your air conditioner.
A Clean AC Unit Runs More Efficiently
A clean air conditioner will operate more efficiently and save you money. It will also last longer, saving you even more money over an extended period of time. A technician will clean your air conditioner from the inside and out. Some of the parts that the technician will check and clean include drain openings, evaporator and condensing coils, blower components, circuit boards, motors, capacitors, fan blades, relays, control boxes, wiring and insulation. Technicians will replace and repair any internal parts that are damaged or worn during their annual checkup.
Have Your Furnace Inspected
Furnaces are what keep us warm during the winter. As part of an HVAC preventative maintenance program, your furnace will be inspected annually or bi-annually in some cases in the fall before peak heating season. HVAC experts will check the gas connections and make sure they are safe and properly fitted. They will also clean and inspect your furnace. Damaged or dirty parts in a furnace will lead to inefficient operation and can pose a fire hazard. Technicians will spot and repair any issues during the maintenance inspection.
