Why an HVAC Maintenance Plan Can Save You Money

Why an HVAC Maintenance Plan Can Save You Money

Regular maintenance makes everything last longer. Think about it. You prevent cavities by maintaining a regular tooth brushing schedule. You prevent your car from breaking down with regular oil changes. An HVAC maintenance plan serves the same purpose. You can prevent breakdowns, and make the system last longer by taking care of it. .

We take our air conditioning and heating systems for granted. Out of sight, out of mind, as they say. But regular maintenance can save you money in the long run, by preventing problems from occurring, and by catching problems while they’re still small issues instead of big money issues.

You, as a homeowner, can take care of the easiest HVAC maintenance task: Change your filters on a regular basis. Did you know a dirty filter can cause your air conditioning or heating system to burn out? Granted, the filter has to be pretty bad before that will happen. A dirty filter can also cause sneezing, coughing and congestion.

Consider upgrading from the cheapest one inch filters to the three inch filters for better quality air. Check the filter monthly with the thinner filters. The thicker filters can go for 2-3 months before you need to change them.
