A penny in maintenance can save a dollar in repairs
A lot of HVAC problems start small and can often be unnoticed, but they worsen gradually over time, until the problem is no longer unnoticed and often results in a costly repair.
Fortunately, HVAC maintenance or “tune and cleans” is routinely simple and essential, while being cost-effective– In almost every case, the proper maintenance of air conditioners saves far more in energy and equipment-repair costs than the expense of regular maintenance.
Did you know that most manufacturers will not guarantee your warranty without an annual maintenance? If the manufacturer finds a part faulty from a lack of maintenance, then they are known to deny warranty to our customers.
Modern HVAC units are designed and built to last 15+ years, yet their reliability is only effective when customers perform routine minor maintenance tasks. Maintenance is necessary in order for the equipment to provide long-term service.
The benefits of regular, preventive maintenance
The best solution is to engage an expert HVAC contractor to provide regularly-scheduled maintenance for air conditioning, cooling, refrigeration and heating equipment before costly repairs become necessary.
Here are some of the benefits of preventive cleaning and maintenance for your HVAC system:
- Clean condenser coils save energy
- Well-charged coolant systems keep homes and offices cooler and more comfortable
- Regular maintenance saves money from labor and parts costs
- Regular maintenance ensures that equipment warranties remain in force
- Clean, well-maintained equipment is quieter during operation
