Importance of Preventative Maintenance
ENERGY STAR recommends a yearly HVAC tune up.
Just as a tune-up for your car can improve your gas mileage, a yearly tune-up of your heating and cooling system can improve efficiency and comfort. But it does much more than that.
A maintenance call is quite inexpensive compared to bigger problems that can develop. I have had several customers call for a repair , months after I had recommended a tune up. Most of the time, the repair costs are much higher than the cost of the tune up would have been.
Some of the issues that can occur without regular maintenance—and cost the homeowner money— are:
- system not properly charged
- clogged condensate drain
- dirty coil
- dirty filter
Even more expensive: a faulty reversing valve or metering device could cost you 10 times more than a maintenance call in just a few weeks time! All Around Home Air offers preventative maintenance at an affordable price. Check our Specials page for pricing.
