Keeping your cool is easy with the right maintenance agreement. Can a maintenance agreement help you use less energy and save money this summer? You bet! There is consistent evidence that regular HVAC maintenance can cut the costs of running your cooling system during the hot months of summer. Let’s take a look at two ways regular service can keep your home cool while keeping your utility bills in check.

#1: Preventing Wear and Tear

Homeowners use the heating and cooling systems pretty much year-round. The more they use them, the greater the potential for wear and tear. As the parts and components wear out, the system has to work harder to keep up with demand. Regular maintenance can help identify parts that need repair or replacement before your energy bills start going up. Reducing wear and tear on the parts that keep your system running is one of the biggest benefits of twice-yearly maintenance.

#2: Ensuring Proper Function Means Lower Energy Bills

During a spring service call your HVAC company will use this checklist:

  • Replace air filters
  • Clean condenser coil
  • Clean and inspect evaporator coil
  • Clear condensate drain
  • Inspect blower and fan belts for wear and tear
  • Check refrigerant levels
  • Test and calibrate the thermostat
  • Check the power switch and electrical connections

Taking care of all of these tasks during a spring service call will help your cooling system run more smoothly and consistently all summer long. An air conditioner that runs properly is going to use less energy, which means lower energy bills without sacrificing a cool house.

You don’t have to suffer through the summer in a too hot house just to save on your energy bills. You can have a home that’s cool and energy efficient. Talk to our pros at Wilson’s Refrigeration and Air to learn more about how maintenance agreements can help you do both.
