Why is Preventive Maintenance so Important?
Proper care of your equipment can save you real dollars in energy costs. Preventative maintenance often increases the lifespan of your AC and heating systems while stabilizing your energy costs as well as decreasing the potential for future problems. With preventative maintenance, you could benefit by:
- Sustaining your comfort level without increasing operating and/or energy costs.
- Retaining a 100% Freon charge can prevent an increase in operating costs (a 10% Freon undercharge can increase your operating costs by 20%).
- Maintaining a clean system helps you avoid an increase in electrical usage. (A dirty evaporator, condenser, and blower could increase air conditioning or heat pump electrical usage by 50% or more).
- Keeping a clean evaporator coil keeps your system operating efficiently. (Just 100th of an inch of dirt or film on an evaporator coil can reduce efficiency by 50%).
