Benefits of Having an HVAC Maintenance Program

Unpleasant events are known to be a learning experience one never forgets. They serve as reminders of the frustration and discomfort faced.

Having an HVAC system break down in the middle of a hot summer day (which is common in the Bay Area) with no HVAC maintenance program is one such unpleasant event. There is more to a maintenance program than meets the eye. Here are a few benefits of having an HVAC maintenance program:

1. Helps lowering energy bills

One of the primary concerns of all homeowners is to reign in expenses. A major chunk of your monthly income goes towards paying for utility bills. Having your HVAC system maintained can greatly reduce energy consumption. You can control costs by ensuring your HVAC system runs as efficiently as possible.

An HVAC system stands to lose approximately 5% efficiency for each year that it goes without maintenance. Taking into account the fact that HVAC units account for 50% energy consumption in a house, the loss can be staggering.

2. Avoid costly breakdowns

Generally, maintenance done at the right moment can prevent fatigue to the unit as a whole. This does not allow wear and tear to occur which can cause total breakdowns. Regular HVAC maintenance will cause fewer repairs. Technicians would check the entire unit during maintenance to identify small issues and take care of these cheap repairs before they can cause major problems.

Sometimes, small issues when neglected can blow up to become large problems with expensive price tags. These minor issues can quickly snowball and escalate into a major breakdown. Besides being costly to repair, a breakdown can also be highly uncomfortable, especially when it is the middle of summer or winter.

Things to Consider

While choosing an HVAC maintenance provider, you need to make sure that they carry out all tasks required to keep your system in top shape. Generally, providers offer different levels of service at different costs. The most basic maintenance plan should include:

  • Cleaning of coils
  • Cleaning or changing of filters
  • Cleaning drain lines and pans
  • Inspecting ducts
  • Replacing worn pulleys and belts
  • Checking refrigerant charge for leaks
  • Checking electrical system
  • Testing thermostats and controls
  • Checking fan motor
  • Lubrication of pumps and moving parts
  • Checking blowers and blades for proper airflow
  • Assessing overall condition of equipment
  • Inspecting cabinet for leaks
  • Checking cabinet hardware

There are many modernistic HVAC servicing companies that use state-of-the-art technology to render excellent service. You don’t have to physically follow the technician to make sure they are taking care of everything on the maintenance checklist. In fact, you don’t even have to be in the house when a technician calls.
