Why should I get a No Cost HVAC Tune-Up?
Utilities in the states of Maryland and Virginia are offering new incentives for no cost building HVAC tune-ups. Energy and cost savings on your utility bill are estimated to reach up to 15%.
What’s more, a tune-up improves your HVAC equipment performance and gets you more years of service. Neglecting your system, resulting in a shorter system life, can cost you hundreds or even thousands in early replacement or repair costs. A tune-up will return equipment to its proper operational state, increase outside air control and indoor air quality, improve comfort for building occupants.
Even if you have an HVAC maintenance contract, we encourage you to take advantage of this service to, at the very minimum, get a 3rd party “savings focused” audit by our certified HVAC efficiency technicians. We provide a complete inventory of make, model, serial numbers, real-time data on malfunctioning equipment, and 23 point inspection – all at no cost to you.
How is it possible for it to be “No Cost”?
Through state mandates, YOU, the consumer, have been paying into a pool of funding set aside for energy efficiency programs. As highlighted in the image below, these charges are levied on your utility bills every month. These funds pay 100% of this service for you and everyone else in the state, so you might as well use it since you’re paying for it either way!
What does the service include?
- 23 point HVAC inspection
- Calibration of building systems and controls
- Replacement of equipment filters
- Cleaning of evaporator and condenser coils
- Sealing any compressed air leaks
- Rebalancing air handling systems
- Inventory of all major mechanical equipment
- In-depth analysis to determine other energy-saving upgrades and incentives
