HVAC Maintenance to Increase Energy Savings

HVAC MaintenanceMost homeowners not only in Miami but across the globe operate in a reactive mode when it comes to their HVAC systems. As compared to waiting until your heating, ventilation and air conditioning unit breaks down to be repaired, it’s far much better to schedule regular maintenance services with a reputable and reliable HVAC company. Keeping your HVAC unit operating properly and at its peak efficiency will go a long way in helping you manage your energy consumption.

It’s worth noting that proper HVAC system maintenance will not only help you save on energy consumption but also in prolonging the longevity of your system. You will also enjoy enhanced indoor air quality with properly maintained and serviced HVAC equipment.

Reactive Maintenance versus Preventive Maintenance

Proper maintenance and servicing of your HVAC system requires proper planning and forward thinking, which becomes lost when maintenance is not given the priority it deserves. Most HVAC units are out of sight and as such tend to be forgotten until something goes wrong. Maintenance at this point is reactive and is one of the most costly way of maintaining your heating, ventilation and air conditioning system.

On the other hand, homeowners who have implemented a comprehensive predictive and planned maintenance program experience dramatic decrease in maintenance costs. A well-maintained system will not only save you money on energy bills, but also has less frequent downtime and extended equipment lifespan. As a matter of fact, homeowners who have implemented a comprehensive preventive maintenance program reduce their HVAC operational costs by almost 50% compared to those who continue maintaining their units reactively. Dollars spent on comprehensive maintenance will result in an improvement in the operation and efficiency of the system and this will save you a significant amount of money in the long run.

Energy Savings

One of the most significant benefits of regular professional HVAC maintenance is enhanced energy efficiency. Heating and cooling equipment in which proper maintenance is done on a regular basis will consume at least 15 to 20% less energy compared to those units that are left to deteriorate before repairs are done.

It is a fact that heating and cooling of your home accounts to the highest use of your electricity. To keep the heat pump or furnace operating as efficiently as possible, maintenance work must be conducted on a weekly, monthly and annual basis. If you leave your heat pump unattended for long, the efficiency will significantly decrease thus increasing energy use.

It’s crystal clear from the above discussion that regular inspection and maintenance of your HVAC system will keep it operating properly and at its peak efficiency; minimizing energy use. Document what maintenance needs to be done on a regular basis and how much it will cost and compare it with how much you will save in terms of energy use. You will be amazed by the results.
