Avoid Costly Breakdowns With Preventive Maintenance

Posted by Paul Wadsworth on Fri, Nov 26, 2010 @ 01:14 PM

Is your HVAC system running optimally? Are you sure? One of the most inconvenient and expensive mishaps that can occur is when a furnace or air conditioner breaks down and needs repairs. Preventative maintenance is one way to avoid costly breakdowns in your heating, cooling and ventilating systems, and most people can’t afford to forget about it.

Annual preventative maintenance on your heating and cooling systems are much less expensive than having to get the appliances repaired and parts replaced. In fact, not maintaining your equipment is one way to ensure that you will need to spend a lot of money replacing your units well before you should have to.

Many systems these days are also covered by some form of extended warranty plan.  Almost all of these plans require that you perform regular maintenance on the system for the coverage to remain in force.  This makes sense in that if you ignore the care of your system, how can the warranty plan cover for your mistake?  Would your car manufacturer cover your engine warranty if your neglected to change the oil?  It is the same with your home comfort system warranty.

When you call your contractor for preventative maintenance, there are several things that they will do to keep your VC appliances running efficiently. These include lubricating motors, replacing filters, testing switches and voltages, and more. Each step that they take will help you to save energy, help your equipment last longer, and prevent breakdowns.They can also evaluate your ventilation system, as leaks could waste energy.

If you schedule annual maintenance you will keep your units clean and running optimally. This means that they will burn less energy when they are in use and reduce your energy bills.  Additionally, regular preventative maintenance will extend the life of your equipment and that means that you will get a better return on the original investment in your system.

It just makes sense to do what you can to avoid breakdowns and keep your heating, cooling and ventilation systems working well. Overall, you will only save money in the end.
