Preventive Maintenance

Why is service / Preventive maintenance so necessary for heating and air conditioning equipment?

Preventive maintenance or service is essential to the proper functioning of air conditioning and heating equipment. If preventive maintenance is not performed regularly or if it is done haphazardly, the equipment will require extensive and costly repairs at a later date that is sooner than it should be. This is not just a case of "pay me now or pay me later." It is a case of "pay me now or pay me considerably more, later," and lost reliability while paying higher energy costs in the process.

Preventive maintenance programs of air conditioning and heating equipment include regular inspections each year. During these inspections, proper operation of the equipment is checked and verified. All mechanical equipment is designed to operate within certain limits. Air conditioning and heating equipment is no exception, and if not properly maintained, the equipment will exceed its design limitations with the result being equipment failure. Your best insurance against HVAC failure and cost containment is equipment preventive maintenance.

Even if your comprehensive preventive maintenance program is delinquent or deferred, don't forget one simple step: keeping tabs on the condition and age of the air filter. The air filter is important to the lifeblood of the building; a good air filter maintains the quality of the environment. The mechanical health of your building's HVAC system can also rest on the condition of the air-filtration system. Changing air filters frequently and using a quality filter can extend the life of your expensive HVAC equipment.
