For both our residential and commercial customers, we strongly believe in the importance of regularly-scheduled and consistently-performed maintenance.
In fact we almost insist that our customers have us provide Max Maintenance for their heating and cooling systems that we service and install because we know the value our customers get from properly taking care of their investment.
Heating and air conditioning involves complex mechanical equipment. Manufactures like Carrier for example put a lot of research and lab testing into the design of their products so that the result is equipment designed to operate for a certain period, a number of years, at a target Btuh output and efficiency rating.
Maintenance plays a key role in the performance of HVAC equipment. A neglected unit can cost 10% to 25% in energy savings loss as well premature replacement.
Larger mechanical components such as the compressor and the condenser and evaporator coils operate over the service life depending on how well the system as a whole is maintained.
Maintenance ensures that equipment stays in like-new from-the-factory condition and runs at designed efficiency and output for as long of a service life as designed and built by the manufacturer, happily even longer in many cases when properly taken care of.
