How Can a Maintenance Program Save You Money?

two outdoor ac units with tools on top of oneWe’re going to start by saying, not only can a Santa Fe, NM HVAC maintenance program save you money, but it will. And given how much we tend to use our cooling systems the majority of the year, that’s really good news! Your heater benefits from maintenance too, as a tune-up helps it perform more efficiently than it would have otherwise. After all, when temperatures drop in Santa Fe, you’ll be grateful for an effective heating system.

Obviously there are many differences between your heater and your cooling system, but one thing they have in common is that they require maintenance—once a year for each system. If you have a year-round heat pump system, then you should be scheduling maintenance twice a year for the same system.

Is Preventive Maintenance Really Necessary?

Also referred to as a tune-up, maintenance is vital to the longevity of your HVAC systems. Whether we’re talking about your heater or air conditioner, maintenance enables our technicians to thoroughly clean, inspect, and adjust anything deemed necessary.

At the end of this service, you’ll have an HVAC system that works at peak efficiency, won’t break down on you suddenly, and will last its manufacturer’s estimated lifespan—and possibly beyond. Without maintenance, you may not even notice small problems that can turn into much bigger emergencies later on.

The Benefits of Enrolling in a Maintenance Program

You might wonder how enrolling in a maintenance program can save you money. After all, it will cost money to enroll in the program. Ultimately, however, this will help you cut down on overall costs. Keep reading to learn more:

  • You Won’t Need Repairs As Much: If you neglected taking your car to a mechanic for a routine oil change, alignment, or any other important maintenance service, you probably wouldn’t expect that it would operate reliably, right? Well, apply this same logic to your home’s cooling and heating systems. When you run your HVAC systems, they accumulate wear and tear. This is a natural part of operation, however maintenance allows us to address this wear and tear and make small adjustments so that they never turn into huge repair needs.
  • Improved Energy Efficiency: Your HVAC system has a rating on it that indicates a certain level of energy efficiency. This is called SEER for air conditioners and AFUE for furnace systems. Regular maintenance won’t magically raise the efficiency rating. However, it can keep your system operating as close to its peak efficiency as possible for as long as possible.
  • Member-Only Benefits for Our Preferred Comfort Club (PCC) Enrollees: First off, enrolling in a maintenance program puts the onus on us to call and schedule your tune-ups, rather than you needing to rely on writing it down in your calendar every year. In addition to this, however, enrolling in our Preferred Comfort Club membership saves you a great deal of money, with our discounts such as 15% off repairs and 5% off of most installations.
