Why Maintenance?

Maintenance for your homeThey say that a penny saved is a penny earned, and there’s no better way to save money than by keeping your home’s heating and cooling system in top shape through regular maintenance.

Your system will run more efficiently, saving you money and helping to extend the life of your system. Not only that, regular maintenance can help prevent costly and annoying air conditioner breakdowns.

Why is regular maintenance important?

Maintenance can seem like an unnecessary expense to some homeowners. So, they put it off as long as they can- until what would have been a maintenance call becomes a repair call. Like everything else in life, putting off maintenance only makes things more difficult, and costly, down the road.  As if the repair or replacement cost isn’t bad enough, the breakdown of your air conditioner is bound to happen on the hottest day of the year.

Like we tell our customers: maintenance isn’t expensive, but replacing your system can be.

More reasons why…

  • Dust and other particles in your home’s air build up in your system, causing it to become less efficient.
  • This loss of efficiency can leave your system unable to keep up with the warmer weather, leading to an uncomfortable home for your family.
  • Experts estimate that as much as half the energy used in your home is used for heating and cooling. Making smart choices about regular maintenance can result in significant savings on your utility bills.
  • Read your warranty – many manufacturers require routine maintenance to keep the warranty valid. Failing to do so can void your warranty.
  • Regular maintenance can add as many as 5 years to the service life of your heating and air conditioning system.
  • Parts in your system that require lubrication can wear out easily when not maintained. This can also lead to increased energy consumption. Your annual inspection includes lubricating these parts.
  • Systems can acquire air flow problems over time, which can reduce your air conditioner’s efficiency by as much as 15 percent. Your maintenance can take care of this as well.

You would never consider driving your car without regular maintenance. You need tune-ups to keep it running efficiently and trouble-free. You fully expect a car that’s not been properly maintained to sputter and leave you stranded on a busy highway. By the same token, you shouldn’t be surprised to find that an unmaintained heating and cooling system has left your family stranded with a hot, sweaty house in the dog days of summer. The surest way to prevent this is by scheduling a tune-up with FH Air Conditioning.
