Not sure about a maintenance agreement? Here are four ways it can lower your energy bill.
Some people are not sure that the up-front investment in a preventative maintenance agreement can actually save them money. Here are four ways those contracts can lower your energy bill.
#1 Energy Efficiency
Without a doubt, the best way to save money on energy is to keep your HVAC system operating at peak performance. If AC coolant is leaking, or loose joints in a ducting system are allowing air to escape into the walls, your system has to work overtime to keep your environment comfortable. That extra work translates into higher fuel and energy costs.
#2 Fewer Expensive Repairs
A skilled HVAC technician can identify small problems and address them before they become costly repairs. Left untreated, these little problems can result in major breakdowns. Imagine the cost if you had to shut down your office for a few days due to a lack of heat. Or as a homeowner, if you had to move your family to a hotel in the dead of winter.
#3 Increased Longevity of Equipment
Replacing an HVAC system is expensive. You want your system to last as long as possible. Regular maintenance is the best way to ensure that you get the longest possible life out of a system. Replacing worn parts, taking care of regular wear-and-tear, and regular cleaning will go a long way to extend the life of any HVAC.
#4 Manufacturer’s Warranty
Often, a manufacturer’s warranty will only apply if the system is properly maintained. In the unfortunate event that you do suffer a major breakdown, regular maintenance records are invaluable to getting the manufacturer to cover the expense.
