Maybe you can get away with putting off your car’s oil change or with going to get a physical. But you shouldn’t put off the TLC your HVAC system needs. A preventive maintenance plan will guarantee that your system runs smoothly, saving you on repair costs, utility payments and system replacement costs. Here’s how homeowners in Woodbridge, Virginia, can benefit from a preventive maintenance plan:
Reduces Repair Costs
A preventive maintenance plan guarantees that your system receives the care it needs at all times. That means your local HVAC service technician will catch minor issues before they escalate and cause more damage. While you may need to pay to conduct repairs, those costs will be much lower than the costs required for the more extensive repairs that result from a lack of maintenance.
Cuts Utility Costs
Regular preventive maintenance doesn’t only help you save on the actual repair bill. It’ll also help you save from month to month. Your maintenance appointments will ensure your system works at its highest level of energy efficiency. And the higher your energy efficiency, the lower your utility costs.
After conducting maintenance, your service technician may also be able to suggest possible changes to your energy use habits. That will further cut your monthly costs.
Extends System Lifespan
Your HVAC system should last you between 10 and 15 years, after which you’ll likely need to replace it. However, a lack of regular maintenance can lead to an early breakdown. If you don’t want to endure a sweltering summer or a freezing winter, you’ll need to replace it as soon as possible, which will become a hefty surprise expense.
Regular maintenance will extend your system lifespan and put off that expensive replacement, allowing you to save and prepare for the expenses.
We know that spending any extra money can be stressful, but the money you’ll save as a result of an HVAC preventive maintenance plan will vastly outweigh the costs. To see what a preventive maintenance plan can do for you, call Brennan’s Heating and Air Conditioning at 703-783-0145.
