Your comfort in Sunland Park, New Mexico, depends on the efficient and effective performance of your HVAC system. Heating and cooling systems are complex machines, and they require regular tune-ups in order to operate at their peak performance level and without service interruptions. Here are three ways regular HVAC maintenance saves you money.
Lower Utility Bills
During an HVAC maintenance visit, our technicians perform multiple tasks that increase your heating and air conditioning system’s energy efficiency. These tasks include cleaning the coils, lubricating the motor and checking for refrigerant leaks. Our technicians also change the air filter. According to the Department of Energy, replacing a dirty HVAC air filter with a clean one increases the system’s energy efficiency by five to 15 percent. This important maintenance task could save you hundreds of dollars every year.
Another way regular heating and cooling maintenance saves you money is by preventing a lot of problems that require repairs. Proper maintenance reduces wear and tear on the system’s mechanical and electrical parts. During a routine maintenance visit, our technicians also inspect all connections, hoses and other system components. If your heating and cooling system has a worn part, we tell you and give you the option to replace it now. The early detection of a developing problem allows us to make a small repair that costs less and is simpler to fix.
Longer System Lifespan
According to ACHR News, a properly-maintained HVAC system lasts for five to 10 years longer than a system that isn’t well-maintained. The costs of installing new heating and cooling systems are substantial. By spending a little each year on tune-up visits performed by experienced technicians, you can save a lot of money from not having to prematurely replace your HVAC system.
