Why HVAC Maintenance Programs Save You Money Over Time


Your HVAC system is designed to last for upwards of 15 years with proper care. But that care extends beyond using your system as it’s meant to be used and changing the air filter regularly. Think of it like your car. You have to drive your car carefully, but you also have to invest in regular maintenance like oil changes. 

Your car requires an oil change every so many thousand miles. Having your HVAC system needs similar service annually. Sure, you can skip annual HVAC maintenance, but if you do then you may shorten the life of your unit. But if you do invest in annual maintenance, then you may benefit from an HVAC maintenance program in San Juan County, NM.

Reduce Future Repair Costs

Your air conditioner has problems for a long time before they become obvious. Big problems don’t happen overnight. They start out as much smaller problems that build and worsen until you can’t ignore them. An annual maintenance program is a great way to save money over time.

Annual maintenance helps you save money on future repair bills by preventing major problems. An HVAC maintenance program saves you money on the maintenance portion because you’re committing to caring for your unit across the course of its entire lifespan.

Longer System Life

And speaking of system lifespan, your HVAC unit will last much longer with annual maintenance. The average lifespan of an HVAC system is between 10 and 15 years. Maintenance makes the difference in that five-year average. Without an HVAC maintenance program, your heater might last around ten years. But with regularly scheduled maintenance, your HVAC system can last for 15 years or more. When you look at a 30-year span, you can save money on an entire replacement if you only have to replace the system twice instead of three times. 

Save on Energy Bills

An HVAC maintenance program is a great way to win back some of the energy efficiency that your system loses each year due to regular wear and tear. But when you invest in an HVAC tune-up you won’t lose as much of that efficiency. This means that you won’t spend more and more on energy use as the years pass. It may not seem like a loss of 5% efficiency is much, but it can quickly add up over time.
