If you add up the heating and cooling costs for your Auburn, Alabama home, you may be surprised to learn that annual total accounts for more than half of your annual energy costs. Heavy use leads to parts wearing out and components that stop working. Avoid unpleasant and costly surprises by keeping up with heating and cooling needs through one or our HVAC maintenance plans.
It might seem counter-intuitive that a maintenance plan would save money since it does come at a minimal cost. But if you consider how much you could end up spending on repairs or the added cost of running your system inefficiently, it’s easy to see why this is such a great option. You’ll also enjoy lower heating and cooling bills throughout the seasons since your system will run at peak efficiency.
Fewer Major Repairs With an HVAC Maintenance Plan
Part of the standard HVAC maintenance plan includes a regular inspection of the furnace, air conditioner, and/or any other part of the system. If your technician notices that anything isn’t working quite right or is showing signs of wear, he or she will repair or replace it right then instead of waiting for it to have more serious issues. Your technician will also be able to give you a good idea of the overall condition of your system and an approximation on the balance of its lifespan. If your system will need to be replaced in the not too distant future, it's good to have some advanced notice, so your can budget appropriately.
Extend Life of the System
The HVAC system within your home is very valuable, so if you suddenly had to replace the furnace or a major component, it could put a financial strain on your household budget. But with regular HVAC maintenance, you can extend its life and keep it running efficiently. You can also include regular duct cleaning as part of the maintenance process, which will help keep the air in your home clean and healthy, decreasing allergies and other health problems for those in the house.
It’s clear that the benefits outweigh the cost of an HVAC maintenance plan. Contact Sensigreen Mechanical to schedule your service and get started with an HVAC maintenance plan.
