An HVAC maintenance plan is an investment that pays for itself. It enhances comfort in your Montgomery, Alabama, home and it saves you money by improving your system’s efficiency. Additional benefits include lower energy costs and the reduced need for repairs.
A maintenance plan will boost the efficiency of your HVAC unit. Your technician will perform routine tasks like cleaning your air conditioner’s condenser and evaporator coils or checking the coolant level.
Dust or grime that has collected on your coils can affect the heat transfer that is required for good airflow. Your coolant level is important, too. If it’s too low or too high, it can create problems including damage to your system and poor airflow or inadequate cooling.
These conditions will force your system to run harder and burn more energy. A good tune-up will address these types of concerns and return your unit to peak efficiency.
Lower Energy Costs
Regular maintenance can also translate to lower utility bills. A system in need of maintenance won’t operate efficiently, possibly creating problems with indoor air quality and irregular cooling. These issues, along with ordinary wear and tear, significantly reduce comfort and increase energy consumption. Apart from higher energy bills, you will also likely see the need for more service calls and possibly even higher repair costs. Taking care of your system will reduce costs all round.
The other clear benefit of a maintenance plan is its preventative aspect. By giving your equipment a regular tune-up, you can catch small problems before they snowball into costly damage.
Major repairs on your air conditioner can cost you hundreds of dollars. A burnt out fan motor alone can cost you up to $500 while replacing a malfunctioning AC compressor can cost up to $2000 depending on the damage. With these costs, it makes sense to keep your HVAC system perfectly tuned.
