How To Save Money With An HVAC Tune Up

There’s an adage that says “you have to spend money to make money.” It often seems counterintuitive. 

With your heating and cooling systems, an HVAC company will always tell you that the best way to save money is by scheduling an HVAC tune up each year. 

How does spending money on an HVAC tune up help you save? 

What are HVAC tune ups? 

An HVAC tune up moves beyond repair work, and allows you to schedule a time for a technician to ensure your furnace, air conditioner, and ventilation system are all working properly. It includes scheduled inspection and maintenance visits twice per year – once in the fall to ensure your furnace is operational, and again in the spring to evaluate the air conditioner. 

How To Save Money With An HVAC Tune Up

A furnace tune up

For a furnace, a tune up checks things like:

  • Changing the filters
  • Inspecting the thermostat to ensure it’s communicating with the furnace
  • Check for loose, burned, or damaged wiring and electronics
  • Evaluate drain blockages
  • Look for pest infestations
  • Inspect the heating element and gas burner
  • Check overall operation

An air conditioner tune up

For an air conditioner, a tune up checks things like:

  • Proper refrigerant levels
  • Check filters and ventilation
  • Inspect the thermostat
  • Check for loose, burned, or damaged wiring and electronics
  • Watch for condensate drank blockages
  • Check for buildup of humidity, and evidence of mold
  • Inspect and clean outdoor condenser unit

How a tune up will save you this year

As you watch the temperatures climb in the summer or fall in the winter, you might hear friends and neighbors complain about broken equipment. By having an inspection before you rely on the equipment more each day, you’ve spotted concerns and fixed them long before they escalate. That allows you to fix problems before they escalate into bigger issues. And it keeps the cost you spend on larger equipment issues and emergency visits from an HVAC company to a minimum. 

It doesn’t stop there. When you inspect your HVAC systems, you ensure they are working as efficiently as possible. This means they require less energy to provide you with the same service. It’s nice knowing your utility bills are as low as they can go. 

If your equipment is operating as efficiently as possible, and remains in top condition, you’re ensured a long life. Your HVAC equipment won’t break down, or escalate to bigger problems that can’t be fixed. You’ll stop problems before they can spiral out of control. 

You’ll also be ensured you have a safe home. When an old HVAC system wears out, it’s more likely to experience safety problems. This can include electrical issues, or concerns with carbon monoxide leaks. 

By scheduling an HVAC tune up, you ensure your equipment is in the best possible condition. That saves you money in the long run.
