Your HVAC system helps to make your indoor environment comfortable. It’s a substantial investment that deserves regular attention if it is to last and deliver the performance you desire. Although preventive maintenance is the best way to safeguard your HVAC equipment, home and business owners in Ringgold, Georgia, often overlook this essential service. Here are three reasons you should sign up for an HVAC maintenance plan.

Preventive Maintenance Saves You Money

When you neglect annual HVAC maintenance, your equipment’s efficiency and your comfort will steadily decline. As performance declines, energy consumption increases. Regular maintenance can save you up to 40 percent on your energy bills. When you consider the expenses involved in purchasing and operating your HVAC system, you’ll quickly realize how critical preventive maintenance is to capturing those energy savings.

Residential and Commercial HVAC Maintenance Increases Safety

You probably haven’t given much thought to your HVAC system being a safety risk, but according to the National Fire Protection Association, fires attributed to faulty HVAC equipment caused $213 million in property loss in 2014. Leaking fuel lines, a cracked heat exchanger, and frayed wiring are leading fire hazards. Ill-fitting gas connections and carbon dioxide emissions do more than affect indoor air quality – they can have deadly consequences. Regular maintenance uncovers these safety hazards before they seriously affect your family, employees or property.

Maintenance Prevents Troublesome Breakdowns

Your HVAC equipment has to work hard to keep you comfortable throughout the seasons. Summer and winter can take a real toll on your heating and cooling units. The last thing you want to deal with is an unexpected, inconvenient, and possibly expensive furnace or air conditioner failure—especially when temperatures are at their extremes.
