How Regular Maintenance of Your HVAC System Saves You Money
The expenses of having a home add up quickly, from roof repairs and plumbing problems to redecorating. You never know what new expense might pop up next, so it feels good wherever you can save a little.
But how can you start saving without giving up something?
Stretch your paycheck a bit further by joining Ideal Air’s regular service plan ! It may seem counterintuitive, but regular maintenance of your HVAC systems actually saves you money immediately and over time.
What’s Involved in Regular Service?
Our regular maintenance includes an entire check of your HVAC system twice a year.
In the fall, get a thorough inspection and cleaning of your heating equipment, no matter what it is, including:
- Boiler systems
- Heat pumps
- Ductless heaters
Then each spring, our team cleans and inspects your air conditioning system.
During both maintenance visits, our team checks for problems that could require repair, performs efficiency and safety tests, cleans coils and other areas that collect dust and debris, and makes minor adjustments that boost the overall performance of your system.
This small amount of maintenance delivers a lot of cost savings to you.
Boost Energy Efficiency
Those performance tests and minor adjustments allow your HVAC system to continue running as efficiently as possible.
Your A/C or heater won’t draw as much electricity or fuel to run when tuned up regularly, keeping your energy bills low.
Clean for Better Performance
One problem that often occurs in your HVAC system is an accumulation of dust, dirt, debris, pollen, and other pollutants.
Not only do these particulates get into your indoor air reducing your indoor air quality, but they also gunk up your system. Too much gunk will slow down your heating and cooling system and force it to work harder to heat or cool your home.
That means using more energy and spiking your energy bills!!!
Regular maintenance cleans your system and prevents a buildup of particulates that could slow your system down. Your energy costs will stay low.
During a routine service call, our techs evaluate all of your equipment to ensure each component is doing its job correctly. Sometimes parts need adjustments or recalibrations that our team can make on the spot.
Other times, our techs will notice minor issues that, if repaired or replaced immediately, will prevent a major or expensive repair later. A minor repair is always less expensive than a big repair, and any repair is less expensive than replacing your equipment.
So do the cheapest thing and have a minor maintenance fix performed quickly!
Replace or Add New Technology
Technology is always changing, especially in the HVAC industry. New parts and appliances are being upgraded yearly for higher efficiency and performance.
And sometimes, those better parts can be swapped into your HVAC equipment to improve the quality of your heating or cooling system!
Regular maintenance allows us to keep your equipment on the cutting edge without you having to pay to replace the whole system.
Increase the Lifespan
Regularly maintained HVAC equipment also lasts longer. In some cases, years longer.
While most heating and cooling appliances come with a 10-15 year life expectancy, that doesn’t happen without care.
By keeping your system clean, replacing parts as needed, and checking its overall performance, you may be able to push that lifespan to 20+ years. This means you won’t have to fork over a lot of money for a new HVAC system as frequently.
