Comfort Care HVAC Maintenance in Knoxville, TN

While all mechanical systems will eventually fail, equipment that is serviced and maintained on a regular basis will last longer and run more efficiently. Think of preventative HVAC maintenance in the same way as you would for your car—if you don’t change your engine oil and replace your belts and filters, your engine will lock up and your vehicle won’t operate. The same is true for your HVAC system! Maintenance is inexpensive compared to the potential cost of your system completely breaking down, resulting in full replacement or costly repairs. Proper maintenance over the life of a unit costs much less than to change out equipment on a more frequent basis.

Did you know?

  • A Freon (refrigerant) undercharge of only 10% can increase operating costs by 20%
  • Up to 80% of all compressor failures could have been corrected if the problem leading to the failure was fixed in a timely manner
  • A dirty evaporator, condenser, or blower could increase air conditioning or heat pump usage by 50% or more
  • Dirty blower wheels reduce air flow, causing longer operating time and increasing costs
