You may be asking what the advantages of a properly executed Preventive Maintenance plan are. What if, for a relatively small investment, you could: save money, breathe cleaner air, enjoy increased safety and comfort in your home, building or facility and help the environment while boosting your overall peace of mind? Let’s examine the benefits
Decreased Costly Repairs- Scheduling regular maintenance can greatly reduce the potential for a costly service down the road by as much as 95%. Although it is impossible to avoid all HVAC repair situations, preventive care can save a lot of money on unanticipated heating and cooling emergencies. Chances are you wouldn’t drive your car for 30,000 miles without getting an oil change; you’d be asking for trouble. This analogy holds true for your heating, cooling and ventilation systems.
Improved Air Quality- Indoor air quality can be affected by dirty filters/coils and blower parts within your HVAC unit. This raises many health-related concerns, such as pollen, mold, fungi and bacteria buildup, that you could be breathing in on an everyday basis. Regular cleaning of these components significantly reduces contamination of your airstream and makes for a healthier and happier environment.
Extended Equipment Lifespan- Equipment that is clogged with dirt, dust and grime has to work much harder and longer to create the same amount of heating or cooling, which leads to early burnout and failure. Don’t spend more on preventable replacements and frequent component change-outs. Spend smarter on preventive maintenance to extend the shelf life of your existing heating, cooling and ventilation equipment.
Decreased Utility Bills- Preventive maintenance helps ensure that your HVAC system runs at close to peak efficiency. This can mean savings of up to 30% on your energy bill, according to the U.S. Department of Energy.
Remember, prevention is always better than the cure. The benefits of preventive maintenance are certainly telling, with all leading to big savings in time and money. By scheduling a pre-season maintenance visit, it allows enough time for any repairs to be completed prior to a serious weather change.
