Keep Your A/C Running At Peak Performance
That’s not a wholly insignificant sum of money, and it’s safe to say a consumer who spends that kind of money wants to see the maximum return possible on their investment. Who wouldn’t?
Today, we’re going to talk about how to do just that. Of course, this is assuming you: (a) Want to keep your A/C running at peak performance, (b) Wouldn’t mind spending a little less on monthly utility bills, and (c) Don’t enjoy paying steep emergency rates due to preventable system failures.
Luckily, there’s a straightforward solution to what seems to be a somewhat complex problem:
Sign up for an annual maintenance plan
Signing up for an annual maintenance plan is a great way to make sure you don’t forget to schedule an annual service from a qualified technician.
Here’s a look at what an annual HVAC service typically entails:
- Clean the condenser and evaporator coils
- Lubricate all moving parts
- Check the start and run capacitors
- Inspect the evaporator drain
- Monitor refrigerant levels
- Clean or replace air filters
- Tighten electrical connections
- Check and adjust burners
- Check the thermostat settings and controls
All of these annual HVAC services provide you with benefits, which make the service technician’s visit to your home well worth it. Some of these benefits include:
Clean, tight, well-lubricated parts help your system run smoothly, allowing it to consume less electricity. You’ll save money on monthly utility bills, which means that annual HVAC service just paid for itself!
Better, Longer-Lasting Performance
A trained technician is able to identify problems early and prevent system breakdown, which saves you money on additional (and more costly) repairs. Additionally, poorly maintained equipment will perform poorly. Your friendly, neighborhood service technician will know how to help you make the most of your investment.
Improved Air Quality
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Department of Energy (DoE) both work tirelessly to educate homeowners about the importance of maintaining an annual maintenance schedule for their HVAC systems. They state poorly maintained ventilation systems can be directly connected to severe allergies, asthma, respiratory infections, heart disease, and even cancer.
Overall, it won’t take long for you to notice the short- and long-term benefits of maintaining a well-serviced HVAC system. In addition to the benefits mentioned above, many annual maintenance plans include discounts on repairs (parts and/or labor), priority service in the event of an emergency, and more!
