While Guyton, GA, is a beautiful place to live, the heat and humidity over the summer become oppressive. This makes running your air conditioner not only important, but potentially expensive with breakdowns or inefficiency. Here are five reasons to sign up for a preventative maintenance program today.
1. Fewer Breakdowns
As the heat and humidity climb, so do HVAC system breakdowns. Airflow restrictions and suboptimal components strain a system to begin with, and then the heat and humidity compound the effect. Preventative maintenance removes many common sources of strain, reducing the need for many AC repairs.
2. Better Efficiency
Your system naturally collects airborne contaminants on the evaporator coil, circulating fan and air filter, reducing the circulating airflow. Without the proper amount of air flowing through your system, it takes longer to cool your home. During a maintenance visit, a technician will clean components, ensuring air can circulate unrestricted.
3. Longer Service Life
The average air conditioner lasts 10 to 15 years, and furnaces tend to serve 15 to 20 years when properly maintained. However, with the additional strain caused by neglected maintenance, your system may fail prematurely. On the other hand, a properly maintained system has a much smaller chance of catastrophic system failure.
4. Warranty Protection
HVAC manufacturers recognize the importance of routine maintenance to keep their units operating. Therefore, many require professional maintenance as a term of maintaining a valid warranty.
5. Repair Bill Savings
Should your system break down, there are many ways in which those repair bills climb. First is the normal cost of parts and labor, followed by overtime charges for emergency repairs. When you enroll in Byrd’s preventative maintenance program, you avoid overtime charges and get a discount on equipment repairs.
Don’t get caught paying more to run or repair your HVAC system. Call to sign up for the preventative maintenance program with Byrd’s Heating & Air Conditioning today.
