We’re a few days into the New Year and maybe the best thing about that is the chance to start fresh and decide on a few resolutions that you can do to improve how the year ahead will go.
Here at Carolina Climate Control, we’re all about finding ways for you to improve your home or business’ comfort levels and save you money on HVAC costs during the year. While there are many things you should think about doing with your HVAC system in 2017, here’s the smartest resolution you should do this year:
Invest in an HVAC maintenance agreement.
Many people say, “My A/C and furnace are working fine, why would I need a maintenance plan for it?”.
Well, much like your car and other equipment, HVAC systems need consistent maintenance in order to operate efficiently and fend off major breakdowns. If you didn’t change your car’s oil, various filters, or didn’t replace any fluids, how long do you think your car would last? The answer is not very long.
Similarly, HVAC systems include various moving parts, electrical devices and filters that help you keep cool in the summer, warm in the winter and your air quality clean at all times. If not properly tended to, these parts can significantly reduce the lifespan of your central air conditioning and furnace system and can lead to declining air quality in your home.
Not having a proper maintenance plan for your HVAC system will cost you money two ways:
1. Your system will run with less efficiency, driving up your energy costs on a monthly basis, and —
2. System breakdowns can’t be found and fixed quickly, leading to, in many cases, total HVAC system replacement.
With regular visits that are included with your plan, small but very important things can be found and fixed or replaced to ensure your system operates with maximum efficiency, that can help drive your electric bills down. Also during the visits, major issues can be found and in many cases, remedied before they cause overall system failure.
Signing up for a maintenance agreement with a highly rated HVAC company is not only affordable up front, but you’ll also receive discounts on repairs and replacements should the time ever come for those.
Invest a little today, to say of a lot later — a smart New Year’s resolution for any savvy homeowner in Charleston.
