Is Preventative Maintenance for Air Conditioning, Refrigeration and Heating Equipment Cost Effective?
Preventive maintenance…is it worth it in the long run? Whether you’re a homeowner, landlord, restaurant owner or hotelier air conditioning, refrigeration and heating preventative maintenance create long-term savings, trouble-free operation and peace of mind. Would you lose business if your air conditioner, refrigerator or heater suddenly failed? Your cost in lost business for just one day could be greater than the cost of preventative maintenance for an entire year! Add to this the damage to your reputation, and HVAC preventative maintenance easily becomes a huge bargain.

Benefits of Preventative Maintenance:
HVAC equipment that performs at optimum efficiency results in considerable energy, emissions and cost savings: Between 10%-40%—according to Whole Building Design Guide, a program of the National Institute of Building Sciences.
Equipment clogged with dirt, dust and grime must work much harder and longer to create the same amount of heating or cooling. This leads to early burnout and failure. Preventative maintenance is the smarter way to go, extending the life of your heating, cooling and ventilation equipment while lowering daily operation costs.
Regular maintenance reduces the potential for a costly service down the road by as much as 95% while helping avoid unanticipated heating and cooling emergencies. Scheduling a pre-season maintenance visit allows enough time for repairs to be completed prior to a serious weather change like summer or winter.
Most HVAC manufacturers and homeowner warranty companies require proof of annual maintenance when a repair claim is submitted under warranty. Some of the components that make your HVAC system work are expensive, so investing in annual maintenance to keep them covered under your warranty can save you a significant sum if something goes wrong.
Preventive maintenance helps safeguard you and your family against the risk of carbon monoxide – the colorless, odorless gas whose effects can be deadly. Any exposure to carbon monoxide, even at low levels, is a health dangerous hazard. Cracked or failing heat exchangers are the main culprit causing most carbon monoxide leaks. Our HVAC maintenance checkup includes a carbon monoxide test that would detect any potential hazard. Ask our technicians about the benefits of installing a carbon monoxide detector.
