Just as you maintain your car to avoid more costly damage, you need to routinely service your heating and air conditioning system to keep it running its best. Without regular maintenance, heating and cooling systems use more energy and are more likely to break down frequently. But with Current Mechanical's Preferred Maintenance Plan, you can prevent costly repairs and experience peace of mind and climate control comfort for years to come.
As much as half of the energy used in your home goes to heating and cooling. Making sure your heating and air conditioning system is performing efficiently can save on your monthly utility bills.
When your furnace and air conditioner are properly maintained, you can add several years to the life of that system. A heating and cooling system is designed to operate at a certain SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) or AFUE (Annual Fuel Utilization); when it’s not kept clean, its efficiency decreases, and it costs much more to operate.
Improperly maintained heating equipment can create an unsafe environment and lead to health risks or even death from poisonous, odorless carbon monoxide. Holes in your system's heat exchanger can leak carbon monoxide or allow flames that are normally contained inside the system to reach your living space. A typical maintenance checkup will include inspecting heat exchangers, burners, proper drafting and safety controls on your furnace, checking your air conditioner’s refrigerants charge and making sure electrical components such as blower and inducer motors are measuring proper voltage and current. Faulty electrical connections can cause unsafe operation of your system and reduce the life of major components
Many of us avoid routine maintenance to our heating and air systems because we fear the expense. Often homeowners will wait until their air conditioner or furnace stops altogether before they call for help. But emergency repair or replacement often costs far more than regularly scheduled maintenance. An annual maintenance plan that includes air conditioning service in the spring and furnace service and inspection in the fall saves time and will pay for itself in lower repair costs and more efficient operation.
Today most if not all manufacturers require routine maintenance in order to validate the warranty. Regular service will protect you from major system repairs and maintain your manufacturer's warranty.
Routine, scheduled maintenance by Current Mechanical not only allows for a more efficient and trouble-free operation, but it’s also a matter of safety and peace of mind. For all of your climate control questions or needs call Current Mechanical today at 260-420-8138 or contact us online.
