Why Do I Need Maintenance on My Air Conditioner or Heat Pump?

Posted by Howell's Heating & Air on August 24, 2017

Time and Money Involved in HVAC Tune Up.jpgYou've probably heard an HVAC technician say to "tune up your air conditioner or heat pump about twice a year." But why? These service visits from Richmond's in-demand AC service and repair providers cost time and money, something nobody wants to give up freely.

So what's in it for you, the customer?

HVAC Tune Ups Help Avoid Costly Repairs

Emergency HVAC repairs, in the middle of winter or summer are going to cost more money that it would have cost to repair that item during a routine HVAC tune up.

In other words, that item is going to break, one way or the other. Would you rather have it break on the hottest day of summer or the coldest night in winter?

In fact, it's during these temperature extremes that your system will be pushing itself the most and will be most likely to experience a breakdown.

Regular HVAC Maintenance Will Save You Money

In the short run - and the long run.

Aside from helping to avoid costly repairs, regular maintenance can help your system run more efficiently, which can have an immediate impact on your monthly electric bills. These efficiency benefits can really add up over the years.

Schedule Your Tune Up

In addition, regular maintenance can help HVAC equipment last longer, sometimes by several years. If year after year, your system is operating at peak efficiency, it's likely to last longer than a system that isn't getting regular HVAC maintenance visits.

So, What Happens During an HVAC Tune up?

Every season, we get hundreds of calls from folks having trouble with their heating and cooling system. From water leaks to low refrigerant levels, the result is always the same: you are inconvenienced!

After the repair, we almost always determine that a regular, "planned" tune-up program could have prevented it. Frankly, the repair is usually triple the cost of an HVAC tune-up (which is why many service companies don't promote them very much.)

And, if the equipment is beyond help, a replacement is about 50 times as much! Starting to get the picture?

Here's What To Look for in an HVAC Maintenance Visit

  • Twice annual "Energy Savings" tune-ups, cleaning and adjustment
