The long, hot summers and occasional chilly winter nights of Las Vegas mean that you need a reliable cooling and heating system. Regular HVAC maintenance is an essential part of avoiding an air conditioning breakdown. Here are the top three reasons why you should invest in an HVAC maintenance plan.
Increased System Efficiency
Routine heating and cooling maintenance ensure that the system operates as efficiently as possible. Part of a maintenance visit includes replacing the dirty disposable air filter. This action alone boosts the system’s energy efficiency by 15 percent. Lubricating the motor and fan, cleaning the coils and sanitizing the condensate line, further boost the system’s efficiency. Maintenance plans for your cooling or heating system could lower your utility bills by hundreds of dollars every year.
Early Detection of Problems
According to the Indoor Air Quality Association, a heating and cooling maintenance plan reduces the risk of a system breakdown by 95%. This is because issues are detected while they are minor and easier to fix. Early detection of problems, such as a worn part or loose connection, means that the repair is usually less expensive. Fixing a minor problem before it becomes a major issue also extends the lifespan of your heating and cooling equipment. Most HVAC system manufacturers require that you keep up with maintenance in order to maintain a valid warranty.
Priority Repair Services
Even with regular maintenance, a heating or cooling system can malfunction. On a hot Las Vegas summer afternoon, you do not want to wait long for a repair technician to arrive at your home. Participating in an HVAC maintenance plan means priority repair services on the same day as your call. There isn’t an additional emergency service fee for evening, holiday or weekend hours for maintenance plan participants.
