There are plenty of benefits to scheduling annual maintenance services, and below, we have listed some of them for you. All you’ve got to do is keep reading to find out more!
The Benefits of Annual Maintenance
As we mentioned above, there are plenty of reasons to schedule your heating maintenance sooner rather than later:
Better System Efficiency
Perhaps the most important reason to keep up with your heating maintenance services is efficiency. When your system is energy efficient, you won’t have to worry about costly repairs and sky-high energy bills. Instead, you can focus your attention on other things, like finding the best hot chocolate in town.
In fact, it has been estimated that your system loses 5% of its initial energy efficiency for each year that it misses maintenance. With annual maintenance, your system will retain 95% of its initial efficiency, making it one of the best ways to save money.
During your maintenance visit, your technician will thoroughly inspect your system for any signs of an issue. Additionally, he or she will make any adjustments needed to optimize efficiency and performance.
Without regular upkeep, you can expect that your heater is going to require more repairs than is typical. This is because an annual inspection allows professional technicians to locate and correct minor issues before they become major. With yearly maintenance services, you can be sure that your system will not require any more than just a couple of repairs every few years or so. Why pay for costly repairs if you have the chance to catch them ahead of time?
Extended Service Life
Annual preventative maintenance is key to ensuring the long and successful service life of your system. In fact, you can eliminate the need for an untimely replacement when you invest in maintenance regularly. Generally, the average lifespan of an air conditioner is anywhere between 10 and 15 years, but yours can last much longer with the right preventative services!
So, What Are You Waiting For?
Annual maintenance is more than just a thorough cleaning (though we do that too!) Therefore, you need a professional who can safely and accurately inspect your system, make adjustments, and repair any issues that may arise. And yes, there may be plenty of amateurs willing to perform these services for a fairly cheap price, however, sometimes an attempt to save money could end up costing you much more in the long run. It is always better to call in a pro and get the job done right the first time around.
