Even in Marietta, it may seem early to be thinking about the summer heat. However, in a few short months, your kids will be out of school and the AC will be turned up. To get the best performance from your air conditioning system, schedule an HVAC preventive maintenance now to avoid a mid-summer system failure.
HVAC systems account for more than 40% of monthly energy bills nationwide. When a system starts to fail or is not producing enough cool air, the financial ramifications are very real. The difference in heating and cooling bills for a properly-maintained HVAC system vs. a neglected system can be as high as 25 percent annually.
Air conditioners, heat pumps and furnaces all conduct their job, based on free airflow through several stages – refrigerant, heat, electric, filtration and ventilation. While you are able to change out the HVAC air filter every month, it’s important to have a professional NATE-certified HVAC contractor perform an in depth cleaning, adjustment, and system test.
HVAC Performance and Longevity
A little tightening and cleaning today, will improve overall performance and help to ensure a longer life span. When you are ready to purchase a new HVAC system, there are many energy efficient, high-tech options on the market. Until then, treat your old system to a little pampering and have it inspected and serviced twice a year.
Understand Your HVAC Maintenance Plan
Talk to your HVAC contractor to see what kind of semi-annual maintenance plans works for your particular system. Based on the age, model, and brand, plans may have options for priority service in the event of an emergency, extra small tune ups or filter changes throughout the year, or savings coupons.
