It’s no secret the holiday season can strain your finances. From the gift shopping to the higher energy bills, you can start the new year off in debt if you aren’t careful. If you shopped for gifts on Black Friday or Cyber Monday, you likely caught a great deal or two. Another way to save money through the holidays and into next year is to gift your HVAC system an Energy Savings Agreement. Here’s why homeowners in Vero Beach, Florida, are investing in this preventive maintenance plan:

Lower Your Home’s Energy Bills

You should aim to maximize every energy dollar your household spends. Considering your HVAC system accounts for nearly 50 percent of your home’s energy usage, maximizing its efficiency is imperative to achieving that goal.

Changing your HVAC system’s filter every 30 to 90 days is one way homeowners can prevent high energy bills. Another is to let a professional service technician inspect your HVAC system at the start of the heating and cooling season. By signing up for an Energy Savings Agreement, you can rest easy knowing your unit is in good hands all year.

Reduce the Risk of Costly Repairs

An inefficient HVAC system has to strain itself to reach the temperature on the thermostat. This not only results in higher energy bills and uncomfortable conditions but also increases the risk of an eventual breakdown.

When you sign up for an Energy Savings Agreement, a service technician will have the chance to remedy any minor issues before they develop into major concerns. As a result, you’ll reduce your risk of paying for a costly repair.

Prevent a Premature Replacement

Forgoing preventive HVAC maintenance for an extended period can allow a minor issue eventually cause a breakdown that’s irreparable. That’s why it’s imperative that a service technician inspect your HVAC system at least twice per year. You want to catch these issues as early as possible. While an Energy Savings Agreement is an upfront investment, it’s more than worth it considering the cost of a premature replacement.
