How HVAC Repair Can Save You Money on Your Energy Bill this Winter

Whether you use a heat pump, a furnace or an air conditioner during the Florida winter, HVAC repair can help you spend less on utilities. It can also save you money in other ways. How? Let’s review.  

HVAC Repair Increases Efficiency

All HVAC equipment loses efficiency as it ages. The best way to keep it operating as closely to brand new is to faithfully maintain it and perform HVAC repair as needed. During regular maintenance, for example, a technician performs an inspection from top to bottom.

This identifies any areas of concern. The technician also cleans, lubricates and tests all relevant components. This process detects any worn parts or belts, as well as areas suffering from an unusual amount of wear and tear.

The cause of this excessive wear and tear may be usage or circumstantial. It may also be due to an underlying problem which needs an HVAC repair.

It’s Better to Perform HVAC Repair Sooner

In most cases of any mechanical equipment, an ignored problem becomes worse. Imagine you notice what you suspect may be rodent activity around your home or exterior HVAC equipment in late summer. It’s perfectly understandable if this slips your mind.

If rodents get inside and nest in your HVAC system, however, it won’t be forgettable much longer. Rodents, other small animals and yes, snakes, gravitate toward sources of warmth as the days become cooler.

Once they’ve taken up residence, they like to chew on electrical wires and other components. One mouse can deliver as many as 10 litters each year. With an average of seven pups per litter, that’s a lot of mice in a short amount of time.

Another risk in HVAC repair delay is a buildup of debris. As Floridians, we are quite familiar with humidity. If condensation occurs within the debris, your system is at greater risk for mold development. This quickly becomes an air quality problem as well as a risk for parts damage.
