HVAC Preventive Maintenance: What’s It Worth?

Preventive maintenance… is it really worth it in the long run? A question that most homeowners, landlords, and business owners alike contemplate when looking to hire an HVAC contractor. The answer?

Peace of mind, long-term savings, and trouble-free operation. It is important to note that you can prevent problems and costly emergency service requests by keeping your system well maintained. This is particularly poignant if you are a landlord or building owner, where your business is offering accommodations to paying customers. You can’t have an unreliable furnace or a constantly malfunctioning air conditioner. It just wouldn’t look good, or provide good customer relations.

Let’s take a deeper look at some of the potential benefits of preventive maintenance and quantify the importance of partnering yourself with the knowledgeable service technicians here at AZ Perfect Comfort.

Increased Energy Efficiency. The use of high-performance HVAC equipment can result in considerable energy, emissions and cost savings of between 10%-40%—according to Whole Building Design Guide, a program of the National Institute of Building Sciences. So, why not give your equipment the ability to run at peak performance, while benefiting from lowered monthly utility bills and increased annual savings with energy efficient operations?

Extended Equipment Lifespan. Equipment that is clogged with dirt, dust, and grime has to work much harder and longer to create the same amount of heating or cooling, which leads to early burnout and failure. Don’t spend more on preventable replacements and frequent component change-outs. Spend smarter on preventive maintenance to extend the shelf life of your existing heating, cooling and ventilation equipment.

Improved Air Quality. Indoor air quality can be affected by dirty coils and blower parts within your air conditioning unit. This raises many health-related concerns, such as pollen, fungi and bacteria buildup, that you could be breathing in on an everyday basis. This sort of buildup can trigger asthma attacks; eye, nose, and throat irritation; and flu-like illnesses. Regular cleaning of these components significantly reduces contamination of your airstream and makes for a healthier household and happier living environment.

Although it is impossible to avoid all HVAC repair situations, preventive care can save a lot of money on unanticipated heating and cooling emergencies.

Remember, prevention is always better than the cure. The benefits of preventive maintenance are certainly telling, with all leading to big savings in time and money. By scheduling a pre-season maintenance visit, it allows enough time for any repairs to be completed prior to the cool of winter, which is right around the corner.
