When it comes to your home’s heating and cooling system, you may be tempted to set it and forget it. And while that certainly is possible, you will be missing out on these important benefits of regular HVAC maintenance.
Like your car or truck, a furnace and air conditioner both have moving parts, use fuel and should be looked at before they break down. If you never take your vehicle in for an oil change or regular maintenance, you know that one day, in the not to distant future, it will leave you stranded somewhere on the side of the road.
How does regular maintenance on your HVAC system help you?
Here are the top five benefits of keep your system well maintained.
1. Improves Your Overall Health
It makes sense that breathing clean air is better for your lungs and health than breathing dirty air. Your home’s HVAC system circulates the air throughout your home. If filters are clogged with dirt and allergens, or if the furnace or air conditioner are not working properly, the air you breathe is not the cleanest it can be. A professional can replace filters and ensure the entire system is working properly so you’re breathing the best air possible for your health!
2. Raises Your Comfort Level
There’s nothing worse that coming home after a long day of work or play and your home is too hot or too cold. You just can’t relax and enjoy your private space when you’re not comfortable. When a technician inspects and performs regular maintenance, your comfort system will be more efficient at keeping your home at the correct temperature, letting you enjoy your family and your space.
3. Saves Energy (and Money)
It’s no secret that things become less efficient as they wear out. The same goes with your furnace and air conditioner. Regular maintenance will keep your HVAC system working at peak efficiency, so it uses the least amount of energy – and saving you money!
4. Reduces Maintenance Problems
If you never had your vehicle looked at by a mechanic when you heard a squeak from the brakes, you’d likely have really large brake repair bills because the damage would be serious by the time they quit working altogether. The same goes with your HVAC system. When a professional performs regular maintenance, small problems can be uncovered before they become big (expensive) problems. By scheduling HVAC maintenance every six months, your technician can find issues before you even notice them, so your equipment is less likely to break down when you need it most.
5. Maximizes Your Air Conditioner’s Lifespan
Regular maintenance will also help keep your HVAC system in great working order, helping it last longer. That means you won’t have to replace expensive components earlier than you have to.
Have your furnace, air conditioner and duct work inspected and maintained by a professional at least twice per year. You’ll be saving yourself time, trouble and money in the long run.
