Energy Saving Maintenance Agreements
Why Preventative Maintenance?
Anyway you look at it, Preventative Maintenance is a smart investment. Manufacturers, contractors, independent publications and homeowners all agree… if you’re looking to save money on utility bills while extending the life and efficient performance of your Home Comfort System, then Preventative Maintenance is your answer!
On the road to Comfort
Consistent maintenance is critical to the efficient and trouble-free operation of all mechanical systems. To put it into simpler terms, think of your HVAC system as a car sitting in your driveway. You would never leave the oil unchanged in that car for a full year! Just the same, your HVAC system MUST be maintained in order for it to keep you comfortable inside your home, especially in the extremes of North Texas weather. In fact, many manufacturers of HVAC Equipment stipulate that the equipment must be properly maintained in order for their product warranties to remain in effect. The evidence is clear. Maintaining your HVAC equipment helps keep your equipment clean and running efficiently the way it was designed to run, enabling your system to keep you comfortable and saving you money on utility costs.
Thoughts on the Value Of Preventative Maintenance
- A research study by Gulf States Power and the Louisiana Engineering Extension Center found that an air conditioning tune-up saved an average of $32.76/month on air conditioning costs. Furthermore, system capacity increased by 9,520 Btuh or 0.79 tons (1 ton = 12,000 Btuh). The study was repeated a year later on the same homes to find out if tune-ups were needed every year and savings of over $24/month were found. In other words, tune-ups are needed every year.
- The EPA says that 0.042 in. of dirt on an air conditioning coil can reduce its efficiency by 21%.
- According to Honeywell, the pressure drop across an indoor coil doubles in four to seven years without proper maintenance, resulting in an 82% degradation of performance.
- From EPA Publication “A Guide to Energy Efficient Cooling and Heating” Maintain your equipment to prevent future problems and unwanted costs. Keep your cooling and heating systems at peak performance by having a contractor do annual preseason check-ups. A contractor gets busy once summer and winter come. It’s best to check the cooling system in the spring and the heating system in the fall
The evidence is clear. Maintaining your HVAC equipment helps keep your equipment clean and running efficiently the way it was designed to run, enabling your system to keep you comfortable and saving you money on utility costs.
