HVAC units, like most appliances, are working at their best when we don’t notice them. When yours is running the way it should, then you’ll hardly, if ever, have to go inspect it or figure out what’s wrong with it. Any time you’ve got to go take a look, it’s usually because something has broken, gotten jarred loose or is otherwise operating incorrectly.

But if you invest in preventative maintenance, the frequency at which you’ll have to stop what you’re doing to go look at an ornery HVAC unit will drop dramatically. How exactly does that work? Well, let the heating and cooling experts at Acree Plumbing, Air & Electric tell you how!

Lower Repair Costs

The first and most obvious reason that preventative HVAC maintenance is a good idea is that it keeps you from having to shell out tons of money on expensive repairs and replacements. Your unit – just like everyone else’s – suffers from general wear and tear as you use it over the years. But without regular preventative maintenance, you don’t have any way of correcting those slight issues until it’s too late.

A comprehensive maintenance plan stops that problem in its tracks. It keeps your unit running effectively and dramatically decreases the chance that an emergency repair situation will spring up on you. So not only do you have to deal with fewer repairs, but the ones you do need won’t be as wide-ranging.

Higher Efficiency

Even if your unit isn’t showing any potentially troubling signs, a technician that performs preventative maintenance can help out in other ways. He’ll make small tweaks to help optimize your unit’s efficiency – things you wouldn’t be able to do as a DIY job.

These minor adjustments extend the life of your unit and help it function more smoothly. Over time, as the unit continues to heat or cool your home, the changes the technician makes will be reflected in your energy bill.

Ideally, you’ll notice a lower cost every month along with better performance. It’s a win-win!

It Extends Your Unit’s Life

As we’ve touched on earlier, investing in preventative HVAC maintenance drastically decreases the chance that you’ll have to pay for an expensive repair or replacement. Smaller problems are identified before they have a chance to grow and spread into more serious issues, so you don’t have to worry about an emergency as much!

But on top of that, the maintenance your technician performs will iron out the kinks in anything that might pose a greater problem down the road. By nipping operational issues in the bud early on, your HVAC unit will enjoy a longer life.

These appliances are already expensive to install – and ensuring that you get a lot of use out of a unit with a long life will relieve a lot of stress.
