Preventative HVAC Maintenance Saves Money in the Long Run Posted on April 20, 2015

Purchasing an HVAC unit is a big investment and it can be difficult to see the value in spending more money on preventative HVAC maintenance. At North Macon Heating & Cooling, we can’t stress enough the value and wisdom in regular professional maintenance for your AC and heating units. We’ll even venture to say that preventative HVAC maintenance will save you money in the long run.

Preventative HVAC MaintenanceRegular maintenance helps to keep your HVAC unit running efficiently which will lower your utility bills each month. An HVAC unit can easily have an unhealthy buildup of dirt, dust, and mold especially in the filter and evaporator coils. Research has proven that a dirty and unmaintained unit has to work 20% harder than a well-maintained HVAC unit to cool or heat the same space. It’s critical that your air conditioning unit and heating unit be cleaned regularly and inspected to keep them running as efficiently as possible and to avoid major breakdowns.

Inspecting parts regularly and making minor replacements when necessary will extend the life of your HVAC units. How well a unit is taken care of and how efficiently it functions directly correlates with its lifespan. Air conditioning systems always seem to break down when you need them most – the hottest day of the year – because they are having to work harder than normal and the wear and tear is greater during those hot, summer months. Preventative maintenance is the surest way to avoid those frustrating emergencies.
