Investing a small amount of money into preventive HVAC maintenance can help you save on utility costs and HVAC repairs over the life of the system. Additionally, keeping up with routine HVAC maintenance can help your Clinton, SC, heating and cooling system to last longer before it needs to be replaced.
Improved Energy Efficiency
A properly maintained HVAC unit runs more efficiently than a system that’s been neglected. For example, when the air filter becomes clogged with dust and dirt, the HVAC system has to work harder to push air through the vents. This requires extra energy and means higher utility bills every month. It only takes a few minutes each month to check the condition of the air filter.
Fewer HVAC Repairs
When the HVAC system has to work extra hard to keep you comfortable, it takes a toll on the components of the system. Parts wear out faster, connections loosen and dirt accumulates. When the system stops working, you must call for emergency HVAC repair. Rather than neglecting the system, stay on top of preventive maintenance and head off the most common HVAC repair scenarios.
Longer Operating Life
A properly maintained furnace can last more than 20 years. A heat pump or AC system typically lasts about 15 years. Neglected systems, however, have been known to fail in the first decade. Don’t let this happen to you. Get the most value for your dollar by keeping up with annual tune-ups on your heating and cooling systems.
