Tips, Tricks & Insights About HVAC

Major reasons why home and business owners should invest in HVAC maintenance.

Why you should invest in preventable maintenance

An HVAC unit is a major investment for home and business owners everywhere. A typical HVAC will be a major expense, and last its owner about a decade; which is why you need to take care of it. At Lee's, we extend our services past the installation process, to make sure we provide homeowners with everything they need. We offer a lot of great maintenance plans that provide a plethora of benefits to HVAC owners across Acadiana.

In this blog, we are going to discuss the main advantages that regular, professional HVAC maintenance presents and prove why it’s such a valuable investment. It’s our hope that you come away with some more HVAC knowledge and realize the short and long term benefits regular maintenance has in store for you.

 

Energy Efficiency

You can count on an HVAC professional to optimize your unit, and make sure it’s inner-workings run smoothly. A quick tune-up from one of our professionals can reduce overall mechanical stress the unit may have. A unit that isn’t mechanically sound will naturally use more energy to compensate its struggles, so fixing the inner workings will rectify any issues that lead to excessive energy use.

HVAC optimization also leads to enhanced indoor air quality as well. Because energy efficiency and HVAC cleanliness go hand-in-hand, an HVAC tech will clean your unit to make sure it is ready to be energy efficient. You can look at your energy bill every month and see first hand the benefits of optimizing your HVAC’s energy intake.

 

Elongated Lifespan

Increasing mechanical efficiency has benefits that go beyond the monthly energy bill. As we alluded to earlier, a system that has mechanical inefficiencies will compensate by using more energy or increasing its work rate. This stress may not seem like a big deal, but for a system that can last a decade, the buildup of stress can be very problematic.

After awhile, stress build-up can have a direct effect on how long your unit lasts long-term, and be the main cause of a shortened lifespan. Through professional maintenance, you can make sure your HVAC lives as long as it is designed to, if not longer. And better yet, it will function at a high rate the entire time.

 

Eliminate Repairs

As we just mentioned, minor stress on your HVAC can build over time and lead to major issues like a decreased lifetime. Part of what causes an HVAC to have a shorter life is major problems that require significant repairs. With regularly scheduled HVAC maintenance you can eliminate costly repairs by preventing major problems altogether.

HVAC technicians are highly trained and experienced enough to recognize problems the untrained eye would not see. They can quickly fix that issue before it grows into a significant problem.Having to stop using your HVAC so it can be repaired can be a major hassle that costs you time, money, and convenience. Don’t let that happen to you, invest in preventative HVAC maintenance.

 

Gain Peace of Mind & Avoid Scams

Another major benefit you can obtain from regular HVAC maintenance is peace-of-mind. Knowing your HVAC is well taken care of is something every homeowner should be able to enjoy. If your HVAC has a bad history of repairs, or if it is old, the knowledge that your HVAC is only a moment away from a problem can be very stressful.

If you purchase a maintenance plan you’ll also become familiar with the state your HVAC is in, and the HVAC technician who serves you. Knowing the status of your HVAC and being familiar with the person who takes care of it is a great way to keep from falling for an HVAC scammer looking to trick you into paying for a non-existent problem.
