Your HVAC is an important part of your home. Keeping your house warm in the winter and cool in the summer is a vital part of keeping your family happy and healthy—and a happy and healthy family means less stress for you.
Like any vital appliance in your home, your HVAC system requires regular maintenance in order for it to continue running at full capacity. If you see or hear signs of heater damage such as strange noises, foul odors, or your HVAC not heating and/or cooling properly, you probably need a repair or replacement for your unit.
However, regularly scheduled, preventative maintenance can prolong your HVAC’s life and keep you from having to worry about the repair or replace argument for a while.
Lower Your Bills
When your heater or air conditioner has to work harder to heat or cool your home, you’re spending extra money to power the unit for longer periods of time. Dust and dirt can build up inside your system and can prevent air flow from efficiently and effectively reaching all the areas of your home.
When your heater and air conditioner has been properly maintained and cleaned regularly, the unit has less work to do to heat or cool your home, because air is able to freely move throughout your home to all rooms.
Keep Your System Operating Longer
Regularly scheduled maintenance will keep your system operating better thanks to a technician being able to spot potential problems before they cause any issues with your system. Additionally, some manufacturers require proof of regular, annual maintenance to maintain their warranty. Warranties can help you out in the long run as they can cover the cost of service and parts for repairs you may not be expecting to need.
Overall, paying for an annual maintenance check will ensure that your system performs to its peak all year long and keeps your warranty valid in case of emergency failures.
Improved Air Quality
Dust and dirt accumulate in all areas of our homes. While it may be on the chore list to dust the bookshelves every so often, indoor air quality is unlikely to be high on the list of priorities for many homeowners. However, poor air quality can affect every moment you spend in your home. If you have poor air quality, you may wake up feeling groggy after a full night of sleep and asthma or allergies may be triggered more easily.
Poor air quality can be caused by dust, dirt, pet dander, and other contaminants in the air getting stuck in your air ducts or other areas of your HVAC system. When you turn your system on to heat or cool your home, the air forces out over all the accumulated dust and debris and pumps it back out into your air supply.
Regular maintenance will ensure your system is clear from anything that could create a problem for your HVAC and your home later on.
Regular maintenance is as important for your HVAC as it is for any other large investment, like your car. If you don’t make it a priority to change the oil in your car, eventually it will stop working entirely and you’ll be stranded. Taking care of your HVAC unit won’t leave you waiting for AAA on the side of the road, but it will leave your family without a way to regulate the temperature in your home.
