HVAC Seasonal Maintenance Saves Money


One of the most frequently asked questions in the HVAC industry is “If I’m currently not having any problems with my HVAC system, do I really need to service it?” The answer is, yes. Much like owning a car and taking it in for regular maintenance and tune-ups, your HVAC system needs to be maintained in order to get maximum use. Here’s how seasonal heating and air conditioning maintenance can actually save you money.

1. Lower Monthly Utility Bills

Lower energy usage is required when your HVAC system is well maintained and running efficiently. This in turn equates to a lower monthly utility bill. Seasonal HVAC maintenance keeps your system in check and running effectively at all times.

2. Reduce Wear and Tear

Wear and tear can cause parts to malfunction more quickly. Routine HVAC maintenance keeps your system running smoothly. It is harder for your system to run efficiently if parts are worn down, broken or dirty. Seasonal maintenance keeps your system clean from dirt and debris which reduces the wear and tear on the system.

3. Catch Developing Problems

With seasonal maintenance, any problems that may be developing can be caught early to prevent a system breakdown. It’s important to have a certified technician check your system for any signs of malfunctioning or worn out parts. Catching a developing problem can save you from having to pay for more serious problem in the end.

4. Reduce Compound Repair Costs

Neglect of your HVAC system can lead to compounding repair issues. A needed repair left unattended for too long can turn into a complex and costly repair. Minor problems may never turn into major repairs if they are detected early.

5. Reduce Costly After Hours Repair Calls

All too often, when an HVAC system is not seasonally maintained, repairs are required after hours for system failures. After hour repair calls can add additional expense and finding an HVAC technician can be difficult during rush periods such as the freezing winter or blistering summer months. With seasonal HVAC maintenance, problems can be detected early and resolved in a timely manner for much less money.

6. Extend the Life of the Unit

Seasonal HVAC service can extend the life of your system by keeping it running at peak operating condition. By keeping your system clean and well lubricated there are less frequent repairs and replacement costs involved and you make it easier for the equipment to do its’ job while you enjoy the continual year round comfort of your home.

HVAC systems should be serviced at least twice a year, at the end of fall and the end of spring. With regular HVAC tune-ups, your home can remain comfortable year round and last for many years. Preventative maintenance is key to keeping your HVAC system running well and averting system failure. Seasonal maintenance can lower the day to day operational cost of your system and save money for you. Contact Nelson Comfort today to hear more about their seasonal maintenance packages!
