There’s no denying saving money takes discipline; it requires a conscious effort on your part, and it’s not always easy. Many people turn to practical ways to curb their spending, like choosing to enjoy nights at home rather than going out, driving less and walking more, buying fewer drinks from Starbucks, and so on. If you’ve already made some adjustments but want to get to your savings goal a little faster, consider looking inward – at your home. One way in which you can cut costs is by maintaining your HVAC equipment. Here are 5 ways a maintenance checkup can save you money.
1. Lower Energy Costs
There are numerous ways to reduce your monthly energy bill without necessarily having to sacrifice comfort, including upgrading to a programmable thermostat, improving insulation, sealing air leaks, changing out the HVAC filter, and of course, maintaining your heating and AC equipment. If your system hasn’t been cared for in years, or at all, the innerworkings are likely worn out, dirty and frayed. When this happens, your system has to kick into overdrive to try to keep up with your comfort demands, leading to higher energy costs. By keeping your HVAC equipment in check, you can save up to 30 percent on your bill!
2. Avoid Costly Repairs
Your heating and cooling systems are among the most expensive appliances in your home, which means if you neglect them, expect to spend upwards of several hundred dollars or more on repairs. If you want to avoid a potentially expensive repair, have a licensed technician perform regular maintenance on your equipment. When you hire Bardi to provide routine care, we will look at all the ins and outs of your system to ensure everything is working properly and at optimal efficiency. It also gives us the opportunity to catch any minor problems before they become much larger – and more expensive, issues.
3. Extend the Life of Your System
We’ve met too many homeowners who unfortunately had to replace their furnaces well before they intended to. If you want to give your HVAC equipment a long, happy life, annual maintenance is an absolute must! When you neglect your system, it can cut its lifespan by up to half. Don’t risk that! With proper care, your systems can provide you with constant comfort for 15 to 20 years!
4. Enjoy A Healthier You & Get Back Your Time
Let’s face it: you are what you breathe in, and when you breathe in polluted air, you can experience a variety of side effects, including irritation of the eyes, nose and throat, as well as dizziness, severe headaches, fatigue and more. When you’re ill, it can be difficult to go to work, maintain a normal life, or just be efficient in general. If you want to restore your health and stop using your sick days at work, we recommend addressing your indoor air quality. During your routine check-up, we can go over the types of air filters available and help you determine the best one for your budget and needs. All in all, time is money.
