You don’t see them as much in older buildings, but newer buildings usually have HVAC systems (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) to control the climate. These systems help keep people comfortable by keeping the temperature regulated at all times of the year. During the winter, you have the heat you need, while in the summer you have air conditioning to keep you nice and cool. In order to keep your system running properly, you need to have regular HVAC maintenance. While you will have to pay for this service, having regular inspections will keep you from having to spend a lot of money on big repairs later on.
Choosing an HVAC System
When deciding on an HVAC system, you need to keep in mind the size of the building it will be used in. If you have a small house, you really don’t need to have a huge system. All this is going to do is jack up your energy bill because you will be using a lot more energy than is really necessary. On the other hand, if your home is larger, you don’t want a system that is too small. You won’t get enough heat or air conditioning, and it will have to work harder, which will increase your energy bills.
Maintaining Your HVAC System
If you want to keep your HVAC system in proper working order, you need to have regular HVAC maintenance checks done by an expert heating and air conditioning technician. Maintenance can save you a lot of money over the years, and extend the life of your system. You will know that your system is reliable, and that there are no safety hazards. Too many people wait until it’s too late. They don’t get the proper HVAC maintenance, and they end up having to spend a lot of money, either on repairs or installing all new systems.
Here is a rundown of how much money you can save just by having regular HVAC maintenance checks:
- Save as much as 35% on your energy bill through adjusting the equipment operating sequence
- Clean the coils and save up to 15%
- Changing air filters that are dirty can equal a savings of as much as 15%
- Cleaning the burner assembly can save you 15%
- Remove scale from condenser coils and save up to 30%
- You can save 15% by changing air/fuel ratios
- Cleaning soot from the fire side of the burner can bring a savings of 9%
- Get rid of V-belt slippage and save up to 20%
In addition to all of the above savings, there is one more way that HVAC maintenance will save you money: you won’t need to have nearly as many service calls, and there won’t be a lot of expensive repair bills.
