Scheduling a tune-up for your air conditioner in the spring and furnace in the fall is a cost-effective way to keep your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning unit performing properly. During a maintenance checkup of your Estero, FL HVAC system, technicians examine and fine-tune major components including thermostats, filters, electrical connections, coils, fans, and refrigerant. Tune-ups save money on utility bills, result in fewer repairs, and help maintain comfort.
Better Energy Efficiency
Keeping HVAC units properly maintained results in improved energy efficiency. Well-maintained systems can cut energy costs by as much as 40%. In contrast, lack of maintenance can increase energy usage by up to 60%. Simply changing the filter can reduce energy consumption by as much as 15%. Using less energy results in lower utility bills and puts more money in your pocket.
A poorly maintained system must work harder to produce conditioned air. Your home may not cool evenly or have higher humidity. Keeping the unit in good working order helps the system cool and distribute air more efficiently.
Seasonal maintenance greatly reduces the risk of breakdowns and costly repairs. Problems identified during a tune-up can usually be corrected quickly. In addition, identifying small problems before they become big saves money on repairs.
Longer Service Life
Seasonal maintenance keeps equipment running efficiently. Components must function correctly both as independent units and part of a system. If the startup capacitor is not working properly, the compressor can be damaged. A capacitor is inexpensive and easy to replace. However, a damaged compressor may be too expensive to replace, requiring the purchase of a new unit. When units run smoothly, they last longer.
Keep Warranties Valid
Many manufacturers require seasonal maintenance to keep warranties valid. If your new unit requires repairs while under warranty, the company may ask for proof that the system was maintained. Demonstrating that you have kept the unit maintained should ensure that the manufacturer will replace components covered under the warranty.
