Why Preventative HVAC Maintenance is Worth Your Investment

Posted by Paul Wadsworth on Wed, Sep 22, 2010 @ 08:49 AM

Some people may not feel that preventative HVAC maintenance is worth the money it costs.  The fact is, the cost of annual maintenance is often offset or even exceeded by the savings to homeowners in the form of reduced energy costs, discounts, fewer breakdowns and longer equipment life.

Here at P.K. Wadsworth, we believe that HVAC maintenance is well worth the investment.  We encourage our customers to sign up for annual preventative maintenance because we feel that it’s the most important thing they can do to ensure their home comfort over time.  We even offer incentives in the form of discounted rates and special savings for participating customers.  With these incentives, the costs of preventative HVAC maintenance can be met or even exceeded by savings!

According to www.energystar.gov, almost half of the energy used in your home (about $1,300 per year) goes to heating and cooling.  Regular maintenance has been proven to cut those costs by as much as 30%!  Other costs associated with poor HVAC system maintenance include the short and long-term costs of repairing and replacing equipment, damage done to your home by excessive moisture and health costs related to poor indoor air quality.

All of these problems arise from lack of proper maintenance on your HVAC system.  Your technician will come out and do multiple points of inspection on your HVAC equipment, and show you how simple do-it-yourself steps can make a big difference in your system’s performance.  A few dollars worth of the proper filters, for example, will prevent damage to your system and protect you and your family from dust and contaminants that lead to respiratory problems.  Clogged air filters prevent good airflow, a common cause of system failure and a major reason why your energy bills are too high.

If you’d like more information about how HVAC maintenance is worth your investment, contact us.  We can help you pick the plan that suits your needs and budget, and gives you the peace of mind that comes from knowing that your HVAC system won’t let you down when you need it most.
