Is your air conditioner struggling to cool your home? According to Energy Star – a U.S Environmental Protection Agency voluntary program, most modern HVAC systems or air conditioners are built to last an average of 15 years, completely dependent on make & model, as well as your climate, how often you run the system, and how often your air conditioner is maintained.

Your air conditioner is something most of us take for granted, and never really give any consideration to until it breaks down & leaves us vulnerable to the elements. When this happens, you’ll rush to find an HVAC company to come to your home, and hope they provide a quick & easy fix. However, sometimes these “quick & easy fixes” can’t actually be completed easily, quickly, or even cheaply.

When this happens, you have a pretty big decision to make: repair or replace your existing air conditioner system? How can you know what the best decision is for you, your home, & your wallet?

Top Benefits of Planned HVAC Maintenance

Top Benefits of Planned HVAC MaintenanceNorthwest Arkansas’ weather may not be predictable, but with planned HVAC maintenance, you’ll at least know you can rely on your furnace and air conditioner to be ready for whatever comes. Along with that peace of mind, you’ll get a few other benefits from a maintenance plan.

Benefits of Planned HVAC Maintenance

  • Convenient checkups – With normal use, the furnace and air conditioner collect debris and sustain wear. If not cleaned and tuned up every year, these systems can end up with problems that impair performance and efficiency, eventually causing components to fail before their normal life expectancy ends. With an HVAC maintenance plan, you won’t be tempted to skip routine inspection because you forgot to budget for it.
  • Lower energy bills – Dust on the A/C evaporator, a dirty blower motor, loose wires, a bad capacitor, and numerous other easily overlooked issues can really lower system efficiency and raise energy bills. Staying on top of furnace and A/C care keeps these systems running at optimal efficiency so they’ll cost you as little to operate as possible.
  • Favorable pricing – Even with attentive maintenance, every now and then a problem can pop up somewhere in your HVAC system. That can mean paying for repair work and/or new components. When you invest in planned HVAC maintenance, you’ll enjoy discounts on parts and labor, and you’ll never have to pay for overtime.
  • Priority scheduling – If your A/C or furnace breaks down on a hot summer day or icy winter night, having a maintenance agreement means you’ll be given priority over those other unprepared homeowners calling in about their malfunctioning system.
  • Reliable service – The last thing you need when your heating or cooling system is giving you trouble is the added headache of calling around to find an available HVAC technician who seems trustworthy. When you already have an agreement with a company you trust, you can relax knowing the problem will soon be taken care of.
