The HVAC system in your King George, Virginia, home is an expensive investment, and its operational cost forms a substantial part of your monthly energy bills. Preventive HVAC maintenance helps you save money through higher efficiency, reduced number of breakdowns, and prolonged equipment life.

Higher Efficiency

Various parts and components of your HVAC system wear out, become loose, and gather dust over time. This makes the system work harder and affects its efficiency. Preventive maintenance involves tuning up the system and examining it for proper functioning. A trained HVAC professional checks the system for potential issues, like faulty or worn out wiring, leaky ductwork, refrigerant leakage, ventilation problems, and uneven distribution of air. Fixing these issues keeps your system working at peak efficiency.

In addition to professional maintenance, you can also take up yourself few simple tasks, like cleaning the system externally and changing the air filter.

Fewer Breakdowns

A stitch in time saves nine; so goes the popular adage. Preventive maintenance does exactly that. It helps you identify and fix simple issues in time, which if left unattended, may cause larger damage. For instance, fixing a small, misaligned part hardly costs you anything but can prevent the breaking of other costly components. Preventive maintenance brings down the instances of sudden breakdowns, saving you time, comfort, and money involved in emergency repairs and replacement.

Longer Equipment Life

Neglecting the system and ignoring its maintenance can often damage the equipment, warranting its replacement. Preventive maintenance, on the other hand, reduces load on the equipment and fixes the problematic parts before they cause any major damage. It extends the lifespan of the equipment, helping you avoid premature replacement.

Most of the HVAC manufacturers also require regular maintenance as a precondition to retain the product warranty. It’s important to keep the warranty valid since some of the components are very expensive and can cost you heavily if something goes wrong.
