Importance of Regular HVAC Maintenance
We cannot stress enough the importance of regular HVAC maintenance to keep your unit running efficiently, while also extending its lifespan. Having a unit that is regularly maintained can result in immediate benefits while others prevent future problems from developing. Some of those benefits are discussed below.
Lower Utility Bills
A properly maintained HVAC system will save you money on utility bills because an efficient system requires less energy to cool and heat your space. A system that is not properly maintained will slowly start to lose its ability to keep your home at a comfortable temperature at the same level of efficiency it once did. After maintenance an HVAC system will use less energy to operate efficiently therefore lowering your utility bills.
Cleaner Indoor Air
A properly maintained unit will not only keep your space at a comfortable temperature but will also prevent any issues with air quality as well. By replacing the air filter on a regular schedule, it keeps the air cleaner and healthier. A clean air filter will remove dust, mold, dust mites and other pollutants from the indoor air providing cleaner and easier breathing conditions for those in the home or business.
Fewer Emergency Repairs
Everyone wants a fully functioning and efficient system during the summer and winter months and a properly maintained unit is less likely to fail when you need it the most. Regular tune-ups of your system will be able to detect problems that can be repaired in time before they result in a disastrous and expensive fix.
Safer Equipment Operation
A system that is not properly maintained could also result in dangerous conditions for your home or business. For example, a crack in the heat exchanger can result in a carbon monoxide leak. An HVAC system can also develop a short circuit which is a serious fire hazard if ignored. It is important for those in your home or business to properly maintain and regularly have your HVAC system inspected to prevent any safety hazards.
Longer Equipment Life
The average lifespan of a properly maintained and efficient HVAC system is 10 years. If not maintained properly there could be a need to replace it sooner. If there is even one malfunctioning part in the system and it is not fixed in time it could result in a domino effect of issues causing the entire system to break down.
