Believe it or not, spending that little bit extra on your heating and cooling system by way of preventative maintenance can actually help you save money. Now, it might not make sense that you should spend money to save money – in fact, that might seem downright ludicrous to you. However, preventative maintenance (PM) really does save you money – just keep reading to find out how.
A properly maintained system will help you see savings of up to 30% on your energy bills. When your unit has dirty filters or areas that are clogged up, it has to run even harder to keep up with the demands of cooling or heating your home. By the time it sucks air through that dirty filter, then has to force it past clogs, your energy bills will take a hit. Additionally, if your unit hasn’t been serviced, it could have a leak that may be undetectable to you, but causes the system to run even harder to push out the same amount of air. When you have a preventative maintenance plan such as our System Assurance Membership, your filters will be changed, and any leaks will be detected before they cause your system to work harder.
If you drive a car, there are some preventative maintenance measures that you take throughout the year to keep it running properly. Now, why do you do those things? We’re betting it’s because you know if you don’t, it is much more likely for something to fail when you’re out driving around. This same principle applies to your cooling and heating systems. When that temperature gauge hits the 80-degree mark, you expect to be able to just walk over and flip the switch. If you don’t have your unit maintained, you are running nearly a 75% chance of it not working when you need it most. However, with PM, all components are monitored, making sure that any potential problems are addressed before it becomes an emergency situation. This saves you money in a couple of ways. First, you don’t have to worry about losing time from work, or delaying your production crews. Second, when your system completely shuts down, it can mean an increase in repair costs, especially if one part of the system failing causes problems with another.
The most significant saving seen with preventative maintenance is that your current system will last longer. A well maintained system is proven to last longer than one that is not. When you consider just how much you pay for heating and cooling units, it’s easy to see how the cost of PM is much preferable over the cost of replacing an entire unit.
