As a homeowner, your air conditioning system is one of the biggest investments you will ever make. But as with any other large home investment, your HVAC system needs routine maintenance to function efficiently, and so you can get the most bang for your buck.
Fortunately, many reputable air conditioning and heating businesses offer convenient maintenance contracts, which work to keep your AC in tip-top shape while garnering homeowners energy savings and a slew of additional perks. Not convinced? Read on to learn four of the biggest benefits of signing an AC maintenance contract.
1. Energy Savings
If you’re like most homeowners in the Sunshine State, your electricity bill is probably the most expensive utility you dish out cash for each month. While it’s no surprise that running our air conditioners is the primary source of energy consumption, signing a maintenance contract can help you use less energy. Why? Put simply, when your air conditioning system isn’t properly maintained (think air filters changed, moving parts lubricated, a comprehensive inspection of your unit, etc.), your AC won’t run as efficiently as it could. As a result, your system has to work harder to maintain comfortable temperatures and humidity levels in your home. The result? More energy used and higher bills. In fact, the Department of Energy reports that homeowners can reduce energy consumption by as much as 15 percent!
2. Fewer Repairs
All air conditioning systems will need repairs here and there — but you can help reduce the amount of repairs your system will require over time by signing a maintenance contract. When your air conditioning system is routinely inspected and tuned, you lessen your risk of encountering a more serious problem along with a costly repair. Considering the average AC repair costs between $165 and $507, routine inspections and tune-ups via a maintenance contract can help you avoid these costs.
3. Improved Indoor Air Quality
Did you know the indoor air quality is ranked as one of the top five environmental risks to public health? This is because studies found indoor air pollutants were generally two to five times greater than outdoor pollution levels! With statistics like that, making efforts to improve the quality of the air indoors should be a top priority. When it comes to improving indoor air quality, your HVAC system is one of your biggest allies. Air conditioners are often a home’s first line of defense against many pollutants, but in order to promote good air quality, the system needs to be efficient. When your AC is professionally maintained on a regular basis, it will function at its highest capacity, improving indoor air quality in the process.
4. Extra Perks
When you sign an AC maintenance contract, you typically get more than just routine maintenance checkups. While every company offers different incentives, many offer additional discounts on repairs and other perks.
