Lee Hill, Vice-President of Weather Master says, “Don’t skip maintenance!
According to the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency), as much as half (often times more than half!) of the energy used in your home goes to heating and cooling, so it makes sense to keep your equipment working as efficiently as possible. Hill states, “Regular maintenance on your heating and cooling system can increase the efficiency of your system and have a large affect on your utility bills.” In fact, studies show that properly maintaining your heating and cooling system improves efficiency and can reduce energy bills by up to 35%!
“The build-up of dirt and dust in your air conditioning system, if left unchecked, will eventually lead to equipment failure,” says Hill. According to the EPA, this build-up is the #1 cause of air conditioning system breakdowns. And increased breakdowns mean higher maintenance costs to you. Hill reminds homeowners that their systems will last several years longer with proper maintenance.
According to Hill, routine maintenance not only increases the longevity of your system but it can also gage the “age-correctness”
And lastly, we all expect our heating and cooling system to be able to deliver the temperature we want, to be comfortable in a variety of conditions, and to deliver it all day long – which is the case most of the time. Hill states, “If your system is not maintained properly, it may be working too hard or inefficiently to effectively deliver the comfort of a consistent air temperature.”
So don’t wait to hear the “squeaky wheel” before deciding on regular system maintenance. Having your air conditioning system regularly maintained will pay for itself in lower repair costs, less aggravation and more efficient operation, not to mention increased home comfort. And most of the time the money spent on a tune-up you more than save with lower utilities and fewer repair bills!
