HVAC maintenance not only maximizes your system’s efficiency but also keeps your living space comfortable. Regular HVAC maintenance entails professional cleaning, inspection, and other necessary tune-ups. By observing a maintenance schedule, you benefit in the following ways:
1. Extended Lifespan of Your Equipment
An air conditioning unit is supposed to serve you for around 10-15 years or more depending on your usage. Having your unit maintained or otherwise positively affects its lifespan. An HVAC equipment that is clogged with dirt and debris works harder to heat or cool your home than one that is clean and well-maintained. This leads to its wearing off just as fast. Carrying out preventive maintenance not only saves you from the costly replacement of parts or repairs, but also extends your equipment’s shelf life.
2. Enhanced Energy Efficiency
Energy efficient systems use less energy to operate optimally. As already mentioned, a clogged unit works harder, which translates to higher energy consumption leading to significantly higher energy bills. A well-maintained unit has higher efficiency with less operation time and thus, lower utility bills.
3. Improved Air Quality
Over time, your system’s efficiency decreases mainly due to wear and tear. In such instances, home occupants are exposed to loose particles of clogged dirt as the conditioned air is let out of the unit. This negatively affects your indoor air quality and poses a health risk to your loved ones. Common health concerns include asthma attacks, allergies, throat irritation, and flu. A clogged unit also produces carbon monoxide, which is odorless but deadly. However, these risks can be eliminated by having your system regularly maintained by a professional contractor.
4. Lower Cost of Repairs
Emergency repairs can be quite costly, just as the costs associated with replacing a failed unit. While HVAC breakdowns are inevitable carrying out regular maintenance reduces the chances of emergency breakdown repairs. Minor problems can be identified and rectified before they become a major issue, hence, saving you the unnecessary costs that are mostly associated with emergencies.
Preventive maintenance ultimately leads to saving on resources such as time and money. Scheduling the pre-season maintenance ensures that there is time for serious repairs to be carried out before the onset of summer.
