You might have heard of preventative maintenance agreements before, but may not quite understand what they are. They might initially seem like a waste of money, but they're far from it. The following is a list of just a few of the reasons getting a maintenance agreement should be something you do this upcoming new year.
More Efficient HVAC Operation
A heating and cooling system will have some crucial electronics and moving parts. Over time, these can start to degrade. Assuming the wear and tear doesn't result in an outright failure of your HVAC unit, you will usually notice a drop in heating or cooling performance. When your heater doesn't heat as well and your air conditioner doesn't get as cool, you're more likely to run them longer and harder. This, in turn, makes the problem worse and leads to further inefficient HVAC operation. Preventative maintenance aims to prevent this vicious cycle of wasted energy.
If you don't suffer from loss of efficiency in your HVAC system, then you'll probably suffer from a full breakdown instead. This will take your heater or air conditioner out of commission until a professional HVAC technician can make repairs. You can reduce the possibility of experiencing this inconvenience by completing routine maintenance of your system.
Longer HVAC Life
With a more effective and energy-efficient running of your HVAC unit, your system will have a longer lifespan. This is important given the cost of installing a brand new HVAC unit. Not only can you get more out of your current unit, but you can also have the flexibility to purchase a new HVAC unit on your timetable.
Preventative maintenance agreements provide an array of advantages for anyone who owns an HVAC system. To learn about other ways they can help your HVAC system in 2018, contact our team at Wilson Refrigeration and A/C Service.
