Saving money – it’s something everyone strives for but not everyone is able to achieve easily. While the bad news is that economists predict inflation will return in 2016, the good news is there are still ways to save money around your house. While conserving energy during the long, hot, and humid summers in Pensacola, Florida isn’t exactly an easy task, investing in a maintenance plan can help curb those costs. Here’s how.
Improve Efficiency and Save on Your Electric Bill
Although an HVAC maintenance agreement is an upfront investment, the savings you’ll accrue over time will more than pay off. When you invest in a maintenance plan, you essentially sign up for routine inspections, regular tuneups and on-the-spot repairs without ever having to think about it. Considering that a tuneup can save 5 percent of the energy you’d lose throughout the year without one, allowing a professional HVAC technician to carefully monitor your system is the best way to ensure it operates efficiently without spending more of your money to do so.
Extend the Life of Your HVAC System
When your HVAC system works at peak efficiency, it doesn’t have to strain to provide your home with the cool or warm air you require. As a result, it lasts longer, which means you don’t have to spend thousands on a new system prematurely. HVAC experts state that systems without maintenance generally have a lifespan of 15 to 20 years, while those with regular maintenance can much longer. When you crunch the numbers and do the math, maintenance plans become quite an intriguing way to save money.
Receive Discounts on Service and Repairs
While having an HVAC technician watch over your system throughout the year will help it operate at peak efficiency and last longer, breakdowns are eventually inevitable. Fortunately, if you’ve invested in an HVAC maintenance plan, those breakdowns will be rather minor instead of something major that could lead to even costlier repairs. Not only that, but a maintenance plan also allows you to save on those minor repairs with a 10% discount.
