How HVAC Tune Ups Save You Money
It is common knowledge that we must take care of machines in order for them to work the way they were designed. If we don’t change the oil in our cars, bad things will happen, and the same truth applies to getting regular HVAC Tune Ups.
Isn’t it a bit annoying when the “change oil” light comes on? Now you will have to find time in your already busy day to spend at least 30 minutes having your car serviced, all so that you can continue to drive it without any problems.
We all know that our cars need maintenance but we turn a blind eye to the same logic when it comes to the necessary HVAC tune ups. We continue to use our heating and air conditioning comfort system year after year, even after it has spent months being unused because we don’t want to spend the money to have it serviced.
Unfortunately, not applying the same maintenance logic we use for our vehicles and applying it to our HVAC system is costing more money in the long run. Here's why.
Regular HVAC tune ups keep the equipment running efficiently. Did you know that the Department of Energy estimates that heating and cooling accounts for around 48% of the energy usage in a home? As the equipment ages, you'll get less and less efficiency unless you get your HVAC tune ups done regularly.
Sure, getting this twice a year HVAC tune up isn't so enjoyable, and you probably wish you could just keep using the equipment without paying for the maintenance. But, keep in mind that the real “reward” is the money you will be saving by keeping your equipment maintained as opposed to “letting it go” and then having to spend a ton in repairs.
Equipment Lasts Longer
Talk about saving a ton of money, replacing a worn out heating and cooling system is an expense that you want to avoid for as long as possible. Dirty machines don't last as long as they are supposed to. HVAC tune ups keep the machinery clean and in top condition so you can avoid an early replacement.
