The Importance Maintaining Your Air Conditioning And Heating Equipment
Did you know that nine out of ten HVAC system failures are caused by dirt and rust? Just as a car needs oil changes and tune-ups every now and then to run efficiently, your HVAC system also needs periodic maintenance inspections to ensure that it is running most efficiently in cooling and heating your business. There are many other benefits in maintaining your HVAC systems.
Keeping your equipment in optimal condition can save you about 20% in utility costs. According to a study done by ASHRAE (American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers), if a large central air unit has a dirty coil, it costs approximately $600.00 more each cooling season. It also increases by another $480.00 if it has a clogged filter. That’s a big price to be paying when all you need to do is schedule proper maintenance of the unit.
There is a 70/30 rule when you think of the costs of a HVAC system. Seventy percent of the cost should be preventive in nature and thirty percent should be corrective. We all know that eventually anything mechanical will need to be repaired. Just Right Air’s Preventive Maintenance Program provides periodic inspections of your HVAC system.
