The Importance of an HVAC Maintenance Plan
If you're human, you know the importance of having heat or air conditioning. Without it, and especially on hot and humid, or below freezing, Virginia days, you feel miserable. HVAC units are an investment in your home and to those living in the home, so it only makes sense to ensure the longevity of your unit, as well as the efficiency overall.
To get the most out of your HVAC, you should invest in a maintenance program. These programs are meant to help you save money both in the short term and long term.
Lower Utility Bills
An HVAC unit that is not properly and/or regularly maintained has to work about 20% harder than well maintained units. This increase in how hard the unit has to work to keep up causes your utility bills to increase. This costs you additional money that can be avoided, and the cost of a maintenance program is much cheaper than the increase of utility bills!
Healthy Air Quality
Air quality is crucial to your health, so it's wise to ensure that the air you're breathing in your home is clean. HVAC units that are unkept are a magnet for inviting mold, mildew and bacteria. Ensuring that your filters are changed as scheduled and that your coils are clean is critical to the air quality in your home.
Avoid Emergency HVAC costs
If your HVAC unit is not properly maintained, your unit runs a higher risk of something breaking that could cost you much more than you may anticipate. By investing into a maintenance program you gain the security of knowing that your unit is being cared for, that it's running efficiently and the air you're breathing is clean. Should something occur or break while under a maintenance program, you will continue to save by getting discounts on your emergency services, and free priority scheduling with Comfort Source HVAC.
Think of it like this; You don't buy a car and expect it to run forever without routine maintenance, right? Absolutely not. If you did that, the engine would eventually fail, and there would likely be other damages within as well. You care for your car because it is an investment and because you want it to last, therefore you protect it. The same holds true with your HVAC unit.
