If you were to drive your car at 50 miles an hour for 2,700 hours, you would drive about 134,990 miles. If you wanted to keep that car on the road for that many hours of driving, you would have had kept it well maintained. In fact, after that many miles on the road your car would have needed:
• 45 Oil Changes
• 4 Tune-Ups
• 3 Sets of New Tires
Not to mention new brakes, timing belts, and a host of other things. All done as part of the required maintenance to keep it running smoothly.
So it makes perfect sense that after ‘driving’ your system for that many hours that your heating and air system would need maintenance to keep it running efficiently and problem-free.
And by the way, just like car manufacturers, manufacturers of heating and cooling equipment require annual maintenance to keep warranties in place.
Since replacing your heating and air conditioning system could cost $6,000-$9,000 dollars it is not something you want to do sooner than you have to. By keeping your systems properly maintained, you could add 5-7 years to the life of your system.
The Department of Energy, estimates the average home’s heating and cooling costs account for up to 48% of annual energy usage. With Minnesota’s cold winters your costs may be even higher. Properly maintaining your equipment will decrease the amount of energy used and save you money on your energy costs every hour your system runs.
During annual maintenance visits, each system will receive a thorough inspection and evaluation that takes from 1 to 1 ½ hours to complete—allowing us to catch little problems before they become big ones.
Improving the efficiency of your system will improve your comfort by reducing temperature swings and hot and cold spots in your home. Reducing the wear and tear on your system.
Most manufacturers required annual maintenance to keep warranties in place.
Maintenance for each system includes an Air Flow analysis, allowing us to address any safety concerns. Heating maintenance includes a Carbon Monoxide test, Combustion Analysis, and Heat Exchanger inspection to ensure your system is safe to operate.
We know that the number one reason maintenance doesn’t get performed on a regular basis is because people forget! With that in mind, we created our TMJ Discount Maintenance Plan the cost-effective, easy solution that offers our members annual maintenance service and additional time and money saving benefits.
