Your heating and cooling unit can stay in tip-top shape with annual or biannual maintenance from a certified technician. Not only that, but it can also save you money both in the short- and long-term. Here are some ways it does that.

Lowers Energy Costs

One sign of a malfunctioning unit is inefficient performance combined with unusually high utility bills. It’s the kind of problem that a regular tune-up can prevent. For example, a thermostat that’s not calibrated misreads the indoor temperature and may cause the system to work longer than necessary.

The team at Hi-Tech Air Heating & Cooling can also replace air filters and clean evaporator coils as part of its maintenance services in Lakeside, CA. This allows for unimpeded airflow and smoother performance. Dirt and debris buildup restricts airflow and causes the system to work harder and longer to do its job, thus causing it to drain more energy.

Prevents Costly Repairs

Tune-ups always include an inspection of each component in the heating or cooling unit. When the smallest problems are pinpointed and corrected, this reduces the chances of a costly repair in the future.

Lubricating moving parts in the unit prevents overheating and breakdowns. Cleaning out an AC’s condensate drain pipe can prevent indoor flooding. Checking the gas or oil lines of a furnace can prevent leaks and fires.

Delays the Need for Replacement

Getting rid of obstructions to airflow and correcting those other issues that lead to repairs can keep the comfort unit from having to experience so much wear and strain, which are the very things that will make a unit rapidly age. This means that you can often avoid the need for replacement for longer when you have regular tune-ups.
