HVAC Maintenance | Heating and Air Conditioning
Winter weather takes its toll on our home’s heating and air conditioning systems. During either extreme heat or cold, HVAC systems work harder. As a result, energy bills climb, and breakdowns are increasingly likely to occur, especially when age is a factor in your home’s heating and air conditioning. However, you can reduce the frequency of breakdowns, and the energy bill by scheduling routine HVAC maintenance of the system.
The fact is that a number of homeowners do not want to pay for a service call unless there is a serious problem. However, the truth is that scheduling routine annual maintenance can save you money, in both the short-term and the long run.
Here is how: Maintenance service by a certified HVAC technician ensures a clean system, which reduces wear and tear on system components. By reducing wear caused by friction secondary to dust and debris, the frequency of repair is reduced, and the lifespan of the system is extended.
In addition, routine maintenance offers the opportunity to identify developing problems and to provide any necessary repairs. When ignored, less severe problems will add up over time, affecting other components and resulting in additional repairs that can be prevented with early intervention.
Furthermore, the thermostat is an additional component the technician will check during maintenance. As with any other device, thermostats will eventually experience wear and require replacement. While some thermostats are adjustable, temperature inconsistencies can be a sign of the need for replacement.
While maintenance consists of numerous checks, and potential adjustments, cleaning and other tasks, in the end your system will last longer, operate more efficiently, and experience greater reliability. This adds up to money saved on repair, replacement, and energy. The small amount you pay for maintenance pays for itself in multiples.
Paying attention to the HVAC system can prevent additional problems. Inconsistent temperature, reduced air from the registers, unusual odors, and odd noises can all be signs your system is in need of repair.
Unfortunately, repair is not always the best option. When your heating and air conditioning system is 20 years old, replacement is likely the logical choice. When repairs are required twice a year or more often, and energy costs are rising, replacement will provide reliability and energy savings. In fact, modern HVAC systems are more efficient than ever. Chances are, even the lowest grade system will be an improvement in energy efficiency due to the routine upgrades required in efficiency. For homeowner’s who are dedicated to top efficiency, Garland Heating and Air Conditioning offers a solution for you, as well as homeowner’s with a budget.
