The HVAC system can make up 29% or more of your home’s energy bill. The longer your HVAC system goes without being serviced properly, the more energy it can start to consume due to excessive wear and tear. With an annual HVAC system, homeowners can save thousands of dollars on repair or replacement costs down the road. With energy consumption on the rise, take the time to do your part to lower your energy usage by keeping your HVAC system tuned up and running properly. Here are some reasons why an HVAC tune-up can benefit your home;
- Save Money
- Reduce Energy Consumption
- Increase HVAC System Lifespan
- Avoid Expensive Repairs or Replacement
- Prepare for Peak Usage
- Improve Your Home
Save Money on HVAC Costs
When you take the time to have your HVAC system tuned up annually, you will benefit from a lower monthly utility cost. We often find that simple upkeep and maintenance work helps the entire system run efficiently and reduces strain on the fan, motor, and more. Simple things like a clogged air filter can lead to a complete system failure as it forces the blower motor to work harder to continue circulating the air. Taking the time to change your air filter frequently is a small thing you can do to keep your HVAC system running at its peak level. During an HVAC system tune-up, R&D Heating and Air will perform a complete system test and look for signs of concerns that could impact your HVAC system in the future. We want to help our customers be prepared for repairs or replacement needs, so they aren’t blindsided by the costs of installing a new furnace or air conditioner.
Reduce Energy Consumption
Debris, dust, mold, and other airborne particles can cause your HVAC system to work harder. Excessive blockage within the system forces everything to work harder, causing parts to wear out quickly. Without effective maintenance, ongoing system stress can increase energy consumption and eventually force the system to break down and wear out sooner than it could.
Increase HVAC System Lifespan
An outdated HVAC system struggles to work as efficiently as it could. Outdated systems can increase your energy bill as they work harder to heat and cool your home. Simple updates can help an older system perform better, such as installing a new programmable thermostat. Our experts can identify common energy pits with regular maintenance that cause your HVAC system to use more energy than it needs. On average, furnace and air conditioners last 12-15 years, but we see some last upwards of 20 years due to proper maintenance.
Avoid Expensive Repairs or Replacement
Procrastinating simple things like changing a furnace filter will eventually take its toll on your HVAC system. Most homeowners do not think about their heating and cooling system until there is a problem. Failure to deal with minor tune-ups will eventually snowball into a major issue, often requiring a complete furnace or air conditioner replacement. Avoid future issues by having R&D Heating and Air test your HVAC system annually and fix problems before they become expensive and overwhelming!
Prepare for Peak Usage
When you schedule your HVAC tune-up in off-season hours, you can benefit from faster service and lower rates. During peak season, it can take several days before experts can repair the problems you are facing. Preparing ahead of time allows you to maintain your system and limit the risk of the HVAC system crashing during holidays or in the middle of July and August heat!
Improve Your Home
With annual HVAC system tune-ups, R&D Heating and Air can improve your home by detecting serious issues like harmful gases that leak into the home. Also, dust, dander, and mold can circulate through the home if it is not cleaned and kept free of debris.
