Preventive Maintenance: The Key to HVAC Efficiency

Preventive Maintenance is Key to HVAC Efficiency

If you want to maximize your HVAC system’s lifespan in your Chesapeake, Virginia, home, you must invest in preventive maintenance. Doing so will ensure that your unit operates at peak efficiency, helping you avoid frequent breakdowns and a premature replacement.

Maintain High Efficiency Longer

Your HVAC system becomes less efficient as it ages, especially if you crank it up or down during extreme temperatures. Although losing efficiency is inevitable, regular preventive maintenance can help prolong how long your unit operates efficiently.

Preventive maintenance on your HVAC system is akin to tuning up and changing the oil in your car. The more you invest in taking care of it, the more it’ll pay you back with lower energy costs.

Catch Developing Issues Early

If there are issues causing your system to lose efficiency, a service technician will discover them through a preventive maintenance check. Leaks and loose parts often go unnoticed. You might notice your bills are a little higher than normal. Or you might hear a funny sound in your unit. By scheduling an HVAC tune-up at least once a year, you’ll uncover any small issues before they turn into big problems.

Improve Your Home’s Resale Value

Home buyers care a lot about efficiency. Investing in annual or seasonal maintenance does a few things to help the value of your home. 

Since it improves the HVAC system’s efficiency, it keeps utility bills lower, which home buyers will like. When a potential home buyer feels that you’ve taken good care of your system, he or she will also assume that it won’t break down soon after moving in. Maintaining your HVAC system also indicates that you’ve taken good care of other areas of your home.
