New Years Resolution: Maintenance Visits

Posted by Hannah Barney

What’s your New Year’s Resolution?

We all make New Year’s resolutions. And if you are all like me, you probably fall off the resolution band wagon after about 2 weeks. I always think I can do it, but I like sleeping, chocolate and eating out to much to give up much of anything. However, if there is one thing that people should never give up on, it’s their preventative maintenance.

There is a 70/30 rule when you think of costs of your furnace and air conditioning system. 70% of the cost should be preventive in nature and 30% should be corrective. We all know that eventually anything mechanical will need to be repaired. Did you know that 9 out of 10 furnace and air conditioner system failures are caused by dirt and rust? Just as a car needs oil changes and tune-up every now and then to run efficiently, your heating and cooling system also needs an annual clean and check to ensure that it is running most efficiently in cooling and heating your home or your business. Keeping your equipment in running conditions can save you approximately 20% in utility costs.

So – don’t fall off the New Year’s resolution bandwagon. Instead, determine when this year you are going to have someone come in to look at your furnace, air conditioner, and plumbing. These regular check-ups will end up saving you pricey repair costs. Eat the ice cream, work out less, watch trashy television, just don’t quit on your house. Make sure everything is tuned up and ready to go before peak seasons.
