With average winter temperatures as low as 21 degrees Fahrenheit, it’s vital for Branson area residents to have a fully functional HVAC system. After all, no one wants to wake up to a heat emergency, especially on a frigid morning. Utilizing regular preventive HVAC maintenance is a proven way to reduce your risk of suffering from a heat outage. Being proactive can also save you a lot of money and may even save your life.
Reduces the Risk of Carbon Monoxide Leaks
Any house with a gas furnace is at risk of developing a carbon monoxide leak. Fortunately, you can minimize this risk by signing up for regular maintenance checks. This is a much safer approach than simply relying on a carbon monoxide detector to alert you when there’s already a problem. During a preventive maintenance check, an experienced HVAC contractor will look for signs of future trouble. Cracked heat exchangers are a prime example and need to be repaired right away to avoid a carbon monoxide leak.
Reduces Energy Costs
If any portion of your HVAC unit isn’t working properly, it’s going to force the rest of the system to work harder. As a result, your indoor air comfort will suffer, and your heating expenses will increase. HVAC maintenance technicians look for any signs of broken or deteriorating equipment. Getting any existing problems repaired early on will keep your heating costs from spiraling out of control.
Increases Your HVAC Unit’s Lifespan
The average cost to replace and install a new HVAC unit ranges from almost $5,000 to more than $12,000. Although every unit will need to be replaced eventually, you can dramatically increase your HVAC system’s lifespan with regular maintenance visits. Failure to do so would be similar to never getting an oil change. Eventually, you’re going to end up with a big repair or replacement bill that could have easily been avoided.
