The Benefits of HVAC Maintenance

A Simple Way to Protect the Planet & Your Family

We all know the saying “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” and many may be tempted to apply it to HVAC maintenance. However, just because you can’t see damage inside your air conditioning unit doesn’t mean there isn’t something going on behind the scenes!

Even if the system is functioning, it loses efficiency with each unmaintained year of operation. This means your unit is not only wasting energy, but also causing your power bill to increase unnecessarily.

See how HVAC system maintenance helps the planet—and your wallet—stay green!

Saves You Money

Though we may think we are saving money by not maintaining a system that appears fully functional, this is not the case. In fact, you can save up to 30% on your energy bill simply by ensuring your system is running efficiently! This is because your HVAC system will suffer wear and tear over time and will need to use more energy than an well-maintained system to deliver the same level of comfort.

Additionally, seasonal HVAC maintenance can save you from paying for costly repairs or a premature replacement. Just like our own bodies, our home comfort systems need regular checkups to make sure everything is functioning the way it should be.

Keeps You Safe

Though your air conditioner may not seem like anything that can cause real harm, damaged appliances can put you and your family at risk in surprising ways. If your heater or AC is damaged, it could cause temperature fluctuations that can be dangerous for infants and the elderly.

There may also be even less obvious, yet equally harmful, issues that must be addressed. For example, indoor air pollution caused by a dirty HVAC system can have a significant impact on your health, including sore throats, congestion, and sneezing.

Home Value

If you are selling your home, or think you may want to in the future, it is important to make sure your house is in good shape. Renovations and long-term upkeep can significantly raise the resale value of your house, and that includes HVAC maintenance.

If your HVAC system looks dirty and run-down, buyers will take that into account and may ask for a lower selling price or request that you replace the unit as a condition of sale. Both of these options result in you losing money. But if you keep your air conditioner in good condition with regular maintenance, there should be no problem selling the home for top dollar.

If you haven’t scheduled your annual maintenance checkup, give us a call at any of our five North Carolina locations, and we’d be happy to answer any questions you may have! You can also contact us online to get started today!
