Regular maintenance will extend the life of your HVAC system and keep it operating at peak efficiency. But sometimes it can be tempting to put off this essential task. You may be too busy to make an appointment, or you may be trying to save a little money by putting it off. In this article, we'll examine why an HVAC maintenance plan for your HVAC system is a smart way to save money while ensuring that you maintain your HVAC system on a regular schedule.
HVAC maintenance plans (also known as HVAC membership plans) are highly recommended by HVAC contractors. That makes sense since they're locking in business for themselves. But they're not just being greedy when they make that recommendation.
Professional maintenance is one of the keys to keeping your heating and cooling systems operating at the peak of energy efficiency and avoiding costly repairs. By ensuring that your heating and cooling system receives routine maintenance, you've ensured that your heating and air conditioning system will operate properly when you need them the most.
Here are three reasons why an HVAC maintenance plan for your HVAC system is a great idea.
If you own a home or rental property, you know the service calls to an HVAC contractor for heating and air conditioning service and repairs can be expensive. Even worse if overtime fees are involved!
But the point can't be made strongly enough that annual maintenance (or more) is the best way to save money, by ensuring that your furnace or air conditioner lasts longer, all while providing better indoor air quality and keeping energy expenses lower.
Here's a simple example. On average, HVAC maintenance visits will cost between $75-200. Yet a basic membership package offered by Team Enoch costs $20 a month. And that package includes such perks as priority service scheduling, discounts on equipment, and low financing rates for new equipment.
All in all, a maintenance plan like that can pay off over time.
An HVAC system that receives regular HVAC maintenance will work more efficiently than a system that is neglected. That means that your furnace or air conditioner can perform its designed function - circulating warm or cool air around your home - more effectively.
So no matter the weather outside, your family will enjoy a comfortable home. And here's another reason that your home will be more comfortable when you take advantage of an HVAC maintenance plan.
When performing regular HVAC maintenance, an HVAC technician will clean the coils and blower, plus change the filter. This will reduce the amount of dust, pollen, and bacteria that circulate through your home. Clean air is important for everyone's health, and it's particularly important to have clean air in the home if you suffer from allergies.
As a side note, if you're interested in really keeping the air clean in your home, consider installing a whole-home air purifier. They're very effective in removing pollutants, viruses, and bacteria from your home's air, and they may be less expensive than you think.
Depending upon the type of furnace you have, your HVAC system may have some potential hazards associated with it. Furnaces that burn natural gas, propane, or fuel oil produce carbon monoxide (CO) as a byproduct. This colorless, odorless gas can be deadly if it leaks into your home.
One of the most common causes of carbon monoxide leaks is a broken or cracked heat exchanger. A regular service call will inspect the heat exchanger, eliminating this hazard. Of course, regardless of inspections, your home should have a carbon monoxide detector installed to ensure your family's safety.
In addition, a furnace or air conditioner breakdown during extreme weather conditions can create potentially hazardous conditions in the home, as you try to handle cold or hot weather without a functioning HVAC system. The possibility of a breakdown is much less if your system receives regular maintenance.
