A preventive maintenance plan can go a long way to ensure energy savings – over the entire life of the system. And that’s important for homeowners who live in the Phoenix Valley, where a long summer season means big energy bills.
Developing a preventive maintenance plan is as simple as scheduling HVAC service each year. In the spring, maintenance for your A/C keeps it humming all summer long, and in the fall, service for your heating system ensures that you’ll have heat when you need it. Why is regular maintenance so valuable?
A preventive maintenance plan ensures efficiency
In order to operate as manufacturers designed them, cooling and heating systems must be inspected and cleaned on a regular basis. If these systems aren’t serviced annually, dirt and pollutants will begin to build up inside the system. This buildup eventually causes the internal HVAC components to work harder. For instance, without maintenance, buildup will gather on the air handler’s motor, the motor’s belt will become loose, and the motor’s lubrication will decrease, all of which causes HVAC systems to work harder to produce heated and cooled air.
A preventive maintenance plan leads to energy savings
When your cooling and heating systems are regularly serviced and inspected, and the system operates efficiently, you are almost guaranteed to see savings on your utility bills.
A preventive maintenance plan increases the life of your systems
When a system is kept in peak condition, it lasts longer, because the internal components and parts are less likely to break down. When belts are replaced, fan blades cleaned and so forth, the systems will last longer. In fact, experts agree that regular maintenance can extend the life of a system by as much as three years.
