SafeGuard™ Key Advantages
Proper maintenance helps your HVAC equipment remain efficient, which reduces energy consumption and lowers your facility’s operating costs. Even though your furnace may have been over 90% efficient when it was new, it takes annual service to keep it running at that level. Just imagine— if your system runs at 70%, then 30% of the gas you buy is not being used to heat your facility!
Some HVAC problems can even double your operating costs without increasing comfort. Likewise, a dirty coil does not run as “smoothly” as a clean one; this means that it has to work much harder to produce the same results. Just 1/100th of an inch of dirt on an evaporator coil can reduce its efficiency by 5%. With SafeGuard preventative maintenance, we’ll keep your equipment operating as efficiently as possible, reducing your costs in the long run.
Minor HVAC problems can quickly become expensive damages when left unattended. For instance, up to 80% of all compressor failures could be eliminated if the smaller problems that led to failure had been corrected promptly.
Unexpected equipment failures often happen in the most extreme temperature conditions. With SafeGuard, you can better ensure your facility’s HVAC will be operational when you need it the most.
Properly-maintained equipment lasts much longer than equipment left forgotten on a rooftop. Regular cleaning, calibration, and maintenance after installation promotes longevity, potentially adding 5-10 years to the life of your HVAC system.
Safety & Air Quality
Improperly maintained heating equipment can become hazardous over time. In some instances, poorly maintained furnaces can produce carbon monoxide (CO). CO is a colorless, odorless, and tasteless gas that can be very dangerous to people and animals. As such, CO poisoning is the biggest concern associated with old or damaged HVAC equipment.
Additionally, many air conditioners are powered at over 220 volts. Exposed components could pose a fire, arc, and/or shock hazard. To minimize health risks when operating your HVAC system, regular preventative maintenance is critical.
Just like that old car on the highway pumping out black smoke, your furnace has an exhaust system that needs to be cleaned and checked. A poorly maintained system could emit an unnecessary amount of greenhouse gas and use much more natural gas than needed.
Additionally, most refrigerants deplete the ozone, and a leaking air conditioning system will contribute to this problem. Refrigerant should never have to be replaced, so if yours must be added every year, there is an expensive leak in the system that should be repaired. Make sure that all refrigerant is properly recovered by a certified service technician and is disposed of in an environmentally responsible manner. With SafeGuard, we’ll help you keep your system running efficiently to protect the environment and your budget.
A preventative maintenance agreement nearly eliminates the fear of paying for expensive HVAC repairs when you least expect them. With SafeGuard, we’ll help identify potential problems with your system before they require emergency service. This preventative step can help you avoid the costs of major repairs and HVAC system downtime.
