What if we said, for a relatively small investment, you could save money, improve your indoor air quality (IAQ), help the environment, and receive increased safety in your home all while enjoying peace of mind?
These are just a few of the benefits you receive with preventative maintenance. This small investment will increase the longevity of your HVAC system, saving you money in the long run. Without maintenance, your system can lead to inefficient power usage or breakdown.
1. Saves you Money
Preventative maintenance benefits your bottom line for many reasons. Here are just a few:
- Prevent costly breakdowns
- Extend the life span of your system
- Reduce energy bills
- Priority service and discounts
Regular bi-annual HVAC maintenance is said to reduce the risk of costly breakdowns by as much as 95%. For example, you wouldn’t drive your vehicle 15,000 miles without getting an oil change or your tires rotated. This would lead to many issues in your car. Well, the same is true for your HVAC system. Performing routine maintenance yearly on both your heating and cooling equipment is essential for the longevity of your system. This maintenance reduces the likelihood that you’ll have to completely replace your HVAC system soon.
Preventative maintenance helps to ensure that your HVAC system runs at peak performance. One way you can help increase the efficiency of your system apart from preventative maintenance is by changing your filter every 2-3 months depending on what filter you have, if you have any pets, and if anyone in your home suffers from allergies. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, this can mean savings of up to 30% on your energy bill just by allowing proper airflow.
With our Comfort and Convenience Maintenance Plan there are added benefits and savings including: 10% discount on parts & labor for repairs, 30 day labor warranty on repairs, and service priority request. The components of your HVAC system are fairly expensive, so investing in annual maintenance to keep them covered under warranty may save you money later down the road if something goes wrong.
2. Improves your Indoor air quality
It is true that the indoor levels of airborne pollutants may be 2-5 times higher than outdoor air levels. This is especially relevant if you or your family members suffer from allergies or other respiratory issues such as asthma. Common indoor allergens such as dust mites, pet dander, mold, pollen, and smoke are all around our home without us even noticing.
One way to improve your indoor air quality is to get your air ducts cleaned. Since the air in your home gets distributed through these vents, it’s important to get them cleaned so they are free of dust and other particles. Another way to improve your air quality is by changing your filters on a routine basis. A clogged filter doesn’t allow for proper air flow, and does harm to both the air quality in your home and your HVAC system. This is a quick and efficient fix if you remember to change it often.

3. Gives you peace of mind
You depend on your HVAC system to keep you comfortable year round. Regular routine maintenance helps your system distribute the air in your home more steadily and evenly. It even reduces the odds of an expensive breakdown just when you need your system most.
We’ve all heard it before, someone you know went on vacation and returned to a freezing cold or extremely hot home. If this occurs to you, be sure you fix the issue as soon as you find out. These issues are a domino affect and can cause many more issues with your home as well. And, it can be very costly to fix all of these repairs.
Preventative maintenance also protects you against the danger of carbon monoxide. This is a colorless and odorless gas whose symptoms can be deadly to you and your family if inhaled. Even if slight amounts of gas are consumed, it can cause serious health issues and side effects. A carbon monoxide leak can be a result of a broken or cracked heat exchanger. Our technician would be able to troubleshoot this issue giving you peace of mind. We can even install a carbon monoxide detector to ensure you are taken care of.

4. Helps the environment

This way in the off times, you can rest assured that you are saving as much money as possible and helping the environment!
