When you make a huge investment in something, whether it’s a new home, new car, or other major purchase, you don’t want it to give out halfway through its expected lifespan. If you want to prevent this from happening, you have to take care of your purchase. With your car, this means regularly changing the oil, tires, and brakes. With your home, this means carefully keeping an eye on your important systems. And with your heating and cooling equipment, that means having it regularly maintained by a professional Avon Lake heating and cooling expert.
Benefits of HVAC System Maintenance
Why is maintenance so important for your HVAC system? After all, if you’re like most customers you’ve probably had the same heating and cooling system for years and never experienced any issues with it. It’s true that it is possible for your system to run smoothly with little to no attention for an extended period of time, but what most people don’t realize is just how bad this can be for their system, and how much money they’re bleeding from their wallet by doing so.
First, without proper care, your system could lose efficiency. Dirty coils, dirty air filters, sluggish motors, and much more could all lead to a much higher power draw in order to heat or cool your home, and that means more money gets pulled from your pocket to do so. If you’ve noticed that over the last several years your energy costs have gone up significantly, it may not be simply because your utility company is raising rates on you—your appliances may be contributing as well.
Second, you’re actually shortening the life of your system. When your system is running without maintenance, it’s working harder. When it works harder, it shortens the lifespan of the various parts of your system. When these parts have their lifespan shortened, you start to experience serious breakdowns more often. That means you’ll be making service calls to a professional, who has to replace broken parts and take the time to get it working again. One repair ever so often may not seem like much, but two or three repairs per year can become extremely expensive in a hurry. Conversely, if you had your system maintained, you’ll avoid more of these breakdowns, which means less stress and fewer expensive repairs.
Recent Maintenance in Avon Lake
Recently, we were pleased to be able to help a customer in Avon Lake get the maintenance their home’s heating and cooling equipment needed. The decision to schedule their service proved to be a good one—our thorough and highly-trained technicians were able to inspect their system and found a severely-worn capacitor. Had this component given out, their system likely would have stopped working, leaving them shivering in the cold.
Fortunately, we were able to get the problem fixed ahead of time, which almost certainly prevented an inconvenient breakdown. Today, their system is keeping their family warm & toasty!
