Cut Energy Costs by 40% with Preventive HVAC Service and Maintenance

Cut Energy Costs by 40% with Preventive HVAC Service and Maintenance

Feb 12, 2020 | Insights, White Papers

Save Money, Time and Resources

Did you know that many HVAC systems contain over 100 components? That’s a lot of moving parts. And the minute any of them run into a problem, system performance, efficiency and effectiveness are impaired. The key is to conduct regular preventive HVAC service and maintenance to ensure everything is running smoothly. Consequently, this will save money, time and resources.

The Criticality of Preventive HVAC Service and Maintenance

Why is preventive HVAC service and maintenance so important? 

Consider these facts from the Building Efficiency Initiative:

  • Maintenance can decrease HVAC energy costs by up to 40%, depending on the system or equipment involved. 
  • Best practices in building maintenance and operations reduce energy use 10-20% across all climate zones in the U.S.
  • Poor maintenance practices can increase energy use by 30-60%.

And these facts from the Indoor Air Quality Association (IAQA):

  • Regular HVAC maintenance can reduce the risk of costly breakdowns by 95%.
  • Consistent HVAC maintenance extends the life of the system.
  • Most HVAC manufacturers require proof of annual maintenance when a repair claim is submitted under warranty. Conducting ongoing maintenance keeps systems under warranty.
  • A well-maintained HVAC system consumes considerably less fuel, which supports sustainability and the bottom line.

Extend the Life of Your HVAC System

When an experienced service technician takes a look at an HVAC system, it’s similar to when a doctor visits a patient. Both types of “check-ups” exist to bolster health and longevity. By conducting preventive maintenance, any problems can be identified before they become serious issues. Therefore, costly performance failures are avoided, which optimizes system life, effectiveness and efficiency.

Time Is of the Essence

Conducting preventive HVAC service and maintenance is always an urgent matter. The longer it’s put off, the more challenges that will arise down the road. The optimal scenario is to set up ongoing appointments at consistent intervals with expert technicians. Doing so will create peace of mind and a better-running system, and it will prevent expensive and time-consuming circumstances.
