If you have an HVAC system that’s over ten years old, you’re wasting money. Replacing your outdated system can save you up to $115 in your annual heating and cooling bill. 

But what happens when you get your new system or if your system is younger than ten years old? You need to have HVAC preventative maintenance performed to ensure your new system stays effective and efficient for as long as possible. 

You’ll enjoy these three benefits when you have a solid HVAC preventive maintenance program in place. 

1. Longer Useful Life 

Just as you would with any equipment, regular maintenance keeps it in better condition for longer. Routine HVAC maintenance protects your investment and ensures you get the most for your money. 

A well-maintained system will run smoother. This also reduces the stress on the system and components. The less wear and tear on the system, the slower it will age. 

2. Reduced Repair Costs 

Having an experienced technician inspect and service your equipment will catch potential problems before they become major issues. This will save you money in repairs and delay the need for a full system replacement. 

Routine maintenance may call for the replacement of a filter. This is much more affordable than replacing a motor that wore out trying to push air through a clogged filter that could have been replaced, but wasn’t. 

3. Save Energy 

Your HVAC system typically accounts for 42% of your utility bill. You’ll find that this percentage increases if your HVAC system grows older and becomes less efficient. With proper preventative maintenance, you can delay this decline. 

Dirty and clogged HVAC systems have to work harder to produce the same amount of heating and cooling effects as a clean system. This increase in effort means that it will use more energy to produce the same amount of output. 

A technician can also troubleshoot a sudden decline in efficiency. This can be a sign of a greater problem. Without regular preventative maintenance, this efficiency decline can go unnoticed or ignored. 

4. Breathe Better 

Not all of the benefits are financial. This one is about your health and enjoyment of life. This has to do with the air quality in your home. This is especially important if anyone in your family suffers from asthma or allergies.

As you run your HVAC system, pollen, bacteria, and fungi build up on the filters and in the system. A well-maintained system will clean the air better, remove contaminants better, and more effectively move air throughout the home. It will also circulate fewer contaminants back into your home’s air.
