Proper maintenance of HVAC equipment lowers operating costs and equipment running at top efficiency will use less energy. Even though your furnace may have been 90%+ efficient when it was new, it takes annual service to keep it running at that level. Imagine if your system runs at 70%, which means that 30% of the gas that you buy is not used heating your facility or home. Some HVAC problems can even DOUBLE your operating costs without increasing comfort. Likewise a dirty coil does not run as “smoothly” as a clean one; this means that it has to work much harder to produce the same results. Just 1/100th of an inch of dirt or film on an evaporator coil can reduce its efficiency by 5%.
Prevent unexpected equipment failure, which often happens in the most extreme temperature conditions. Small problems that are not repaired can quickly turn into expensive repairs or replacement. Keep in mind that up to 80% of all compressor failures could be eliminated, if the problems that lead to failure had been corrected in a timely manner.
Longevity & Increased Equipment Life
Equipment that is properly maintained work much longer than if it is set on the roof and forgotten about; properly maintained equipment will last longer when it is cleaned and calibrated regularly. And using regular preventative maintenance has a proven record of adding 5-10 years to the life of HVAC equipment, if maintained from original installation.
Safety & Air Quality
Improperly maintained heating equipment can quickly become a fire and carbon monoxide hazard. The big concern with poorly maintained furnaces is carbon monoxide (CO). CO is a colorless, odorless, and tasteless gas that is formed by the burning of gas and can lead to carbon monoxide poisoning. In addition, many air conditioners are powered at over 220volts and any exposed components would pose as a fire, arc and/or shock hazard.ation.
Just like that old car on the highway pumping out black smoke, your furnace has an exhaust system that needs to be cleaned and checked. A poorly maintained system could emit an unnecessary amount of greenhouse gas as well as use much more natural gas than needed. Also, most refrigerants deplete the ozone and a leaking system will contribute to this problem. Refrigerant should never have to be replaced; if it must be added every year, there is an expensive leak in the system that should be repaired. Make sure that all refrigerant is properly recovered by a certified service technician and is disposed of in an environmentally responsible manner.
Using a PM agreement virtually eliminates the fear of having an expensive repair on your HVAC equipment when you least expect it; potential problems with HVAC systems can be identified before failure that requires emergency service, costly repairs and system downtime. Cleaning and checking your HVAC system regularly can not only prevent unexpected breakdowns, but can also help to catch major problems before they become castrophic or a complete system failure.
