Preventative maintenance is a necessary task for all HVAC system owners. Manufacturers recommended that air conditioners and furnaces be serviced once per year; twice a year for heat pumps, as they serve as both heating and cooling systems. Why is preventative maintenance so important? Read on to find out!
As the name suggests, preventative maintenance prevents your system from encountering serious issues in the coming months. With a trained eye looking over your system as its serviced, your technician can pinpoint system elements in need of repair, which could cause damage if your system is operated with such issues present. Having small issues fixed early can prevent serious damage and more expensive repair issues.
Efficiency and Performance Boost
Preventative maintenance fine tunes your heating and cooling systems, like a tune-up for your vehicle. With components cleaned, oiled, and tightened, your HVAC system will perform at peak levels. When your equipment is working optimally, it uses less energy to produce the temperatures you desire. Preventative maintenance has the power to reduce energy consumption and your energy expenses. Plus, you benefit from precision performance which creates a comfortable indoor environment for your family.
More Years of Service
If you maintain your air conditioner, furnace, or heat pump properly each year, there’s a good possibility that your system will reward you with more years of service than expected. Preventative maintenance reduces wear and tear to the system, which over time leads to breakdowns and repair needs. Eliminating harmful wear and tear and keeping your system operating efficiently can keep your HVAC system in service for longer.
