Why is HVAC so Expensive?

September 22, 2017

Whether your home is getting a check-up on your existing heating and air conditioning system, or you are thinking of purchasing a replacement HVAC system, it’s likely that you are anticipating an expensive bill. But it’s easy to forget how central your system is for your indoor comfort when you’re only thinking about the cost. When everything is working perfectly, you don’t always stop to realize the work and efficiency that is coming from your heating and cooling equipment.

So where do the costs come from?

If you are in the market for a new system, remember the prices can vary quite a bit depending on which features you desire and what your personal home comfort entails. Strand Brothers Service Experts can help you choose a system that will balance your needs and fit with your budget.

However, heating and air conditioning systems themselves aren’t the only costs. There are some extra costs through the installation process that some people forget about.

Most of us rely heavily on our heating and air conditioning system to keep us at the right temperature all year long. So, it is realistic that you would like a trustworthy and qualified professional to install and maintain your system. Technicians go through special training and certifications and are constantly keeping up with the latest in HVAC systems. Strand Brothers Service Experts hires educated technicians that will appropriately install and repair HVAC systems.

The overhead expenses for HVAC technicians is fairly significant. They don’t remain in one place—their days are spent traveling in the service area to visit numerous job sites, which means that fuel costs can accumulate quickly. Effective maintenance and repair also includes additional tools and supplies to do the job.

Saving money is always nice, but you also don’t want to skimp on quality service. To help watch costs, keep your eye out during the year for special promotions that you can take advantage of.

If you are searching for a new HVAC system, or if your existing equipment needs repairs or routine maintenance, our experts are here to help. Before you make the call that it’s not worth the cost, talk with our team to figure out pricing and get an estimate.
