HVAC Preventative Maintenance
Maintaining a home can be expensive but there are ways to cut costs – especially when it comes to heating and cooling your home. One of the most effective ways to save money is to have routine maintenance completed on your HVAC system. There are a few things you can do on your own, but having a professional complete the job will ensure that everything is completed correctly. Trained HVAC specialists know what to look for and can save you money in the long run. Contact us at Weather Crafters, we are proud to offer preventative maintenance contracts. These contracts provide many benefits – not just routine maintenance.
A well-maintained system costs less to operate
HVAC systems need energy to operate and can make up a large part of your energy bill. If a system is not working efficiently, it will use more energy. Leaky air ducts, clogged filters, a loose blower belt, or a myriad of other issues could cause your system to work harder. Preventative maintenance contracts ensure that your system is well-maintained and working optimally. Our trained professionals make routine visits to keep your unit running smoothly.
Identify and solve problems before they become costly
Having issues with your HVAC unit is no fun. Preventative maintenance contracts allow you to stay comfortable throughout the year because we will make sure that your system is operating optimally. We prevent issues from occurring by catching problems before they happen. Our HVAC specialists are trained to note the warning signs of potential problems, and fix them. Without preventative maintenance, a small issue, like a blocked or unchanged filter, can cause a much bigger and more costly issue. Blocked filters could put too much strain on the motor, decreasing its lifespan, or even cause a fire.
Increase the life of your expensive heating and cooling system
You should have routine maintenance completed on your car – changing the oil, rotating the tires, checking the brake pads, and so on. Your car will still run if you neglect these things, but it’s lifespan will be significantly decreased. When the car dies, you are looking at spending a lot of money to purchase a new car. An HVAC unit is the same thing – it needs routine maintenance to run properly and it costs a lot of money to replace it. The longer your current HVAC lives means you don’t have to come up with thousands of dollars to replace it. The average HVAC unit’s lifespan is between 15 and 25 years. A system that has been well-cared for can last much longer, giving you almost a decade more before it needs to be replaced.
Prevent breakdowns in extreme conditions
There is nothing worse than your HVAC unit breaking down on the hottest or coldest day of the year. By opting for a preventative maintenance contract, we will ensure that your system is running smoothly at all times. When temperatures soar, we turn to the thermostat to keep us cool. But if your system isn’t operating efficiently, it can quickly become overworked and useless on those scorching days. The same is true in freezing temperatures. No one wants to be uncomfortable at home. This is especially true if you have a loved one that is older, or an infant in the home.
10% off repairs
Preventative maintenance is something that your HVAC should have done on a routine basis. This will improve the lifespan of the unit and the efficiency that it operates with. At some point your system will probably need a repair to keep it running. If you have a preventative maintenance contract with Weather Crafters, this will save you 10% off any repair your system might need. So not only do our contracts help you save you money on your energy bill and help to extend the life of the unit, you also save money on repairs that will need to be made anyway.
HVAC units make our lives more comfortable throughout the year, and it is important to maintain them. Why not take that off your To-Do list by signing up for a preventative maintenance contract? It ensures that you will have routine maintenance scheduled by a trained professional. Save yourself some money and some peace of mind – let Weather Crafters handle it for you.
