The summer heat and winter cold snaps the Coastal Bend area sees take their toll on your heating and cooling system. Preventive HVAC maintenance helps your system stand up to our climate’s demands.
Lower Energy Bills, Better Performance
Normal use places a certain amount of wear and tear on your furnace and air conditioner. The fan assembly, furnace burner, and A/C evaporator collect debris. Wires work loose, capacitors wear out, and the circuit board can malfunction.
Issues like these don’t always cause obvious problems, but they reduce your system’s energy efficiency. During a preventive HVAC maintenance, your technician will take care of these problems so your system can reach its maximum energy efficiency and you can enjoy low heating and cooling bills.
A system that’s in top condition also performs better. Your A/C will do a better job of cooling your home when the evaporator is free of dust and the compressor is operating with proper pressure and voltage. Your system won’t produce excessive noise, so you can enjoy a quiet home.
Fewer Repairs and Replacements
Common minor issues place wear on your components and, if ignored too long, can cause serious damage. Dust on the motor can harm the bearings and windings. Loose wires stress the motor. Dust on the A/C evaporator coil places strain on the compressor and can eventually cause it to fail.
By investing in annual professional maintenance, you’ll prevent minor issues from turning into major ones. That means less money and time spent on repairs. Your components will last longer, so you won’t end up with unexpected replacement costs because a component failed early.
In fact, with routine maintenance, your whole system will last years longer than it would without proper care, so you’ll get the greatest return on investment possible out of your heating and cooling equipment. You’ll also gain the peace of mind of knowing your A/C won’t suddenly die on you in the middle heat wave.
