Saving Money with HVAC Maintenance

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Petri Plumbing & Heating, Inc., a family-owned home service company serving Brooklyn and Manhattan for more than 100 years, urges homeowners to service their HVAC system in anticipation of summer weather.

After months of sitting idle, HVAC systems can strain to keep up with higher temperatures as summer arrives. Some proactive maintenance can go a long way toward keeping them running efficiently.

“Nobody wants to pay sky-high cooling bills,” said Michael Petri, owner of Petri Plumbing & Heating. “Keeping your AC running at top efficiency is easy with a little annual upkeep.”

With summer coming, Petri offers some things to consider about HVAC maintenance to Brooklyn homeowners:

  • Saves energy and money: In addition to preventing costly breakdowns, HVAC tune-ups can help homeowners save money by reducing energy consumption. A system tune-up will keep your HVAC system working efficiently. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, an HVAC unit running close to peak efficiency can save you up to 30% on your energy bill.
  • Prevents costly repairs: The longer a minor issue goes undetected, the greater the chance of a breakdown. Small issues caused by normal wear and tear can usually be corrected if discovered early. If homeowners are not having their unit serviced regularly, minor problems will turn into costly repairs. Having your unit serviced will not only limit breakdowns but will also extend the life of your system.
  • Keeps your warranty active: Most HVAC manufacturers who provide warranties require evidence of annual maintenance to pay a claim. If you are not having your unit serviced annually and the system breaks down, your claim may be rejected.
  • Improves indoor air quality: An HVAC unit performing at high quality can help improve IAQ. One of the functions of an HVAC system is filtering pollutants in the air. If you haven’t been regularly servicing your unit, it may not be filtering all the allergens in your home. To increase comfort, ensure your unit is working properly.

“Having your HVAC system inspected ensures it’s operating in peak condition,” Petri said. “A quick annual tune-up will save you money in the long term.”
