Once your HVAC system is installed and running, as long as it keeps your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter, you might not give much thought to maintaining it. We understand how for many who don’t know the importance of HVAC maintenance, it can be an easy idea to dismiss. But home safety, long-term savings, optimal operation of your HVAC system, and more, all depend on routine professional HVAC maintenance.
Here are some of the many reasons why HVAC maintenance is important:
Increase HVAC Lifespan
The life span of an HVAC system is highly varied and depends on several factors such as brand and level of use. But, one of the factors that most significantly impact the lifespan of an HVAC system is maintenance.
An HVAC system from a quality brand that is properly maintained can last you well past the manufacturer’s guarantee. An HVAC system that isn’t properly maintained, regardless of brand, has a rare chance of lasting longer than the manufacturer’s warranty. Without proper maintenance, many HVAC systems will need to be replaced even earlier.
Prevents Costly Breakdowns
Unexpected HVAC breakdowns can be a massive headache, cost a ton, and leave you without air conditioning or heat during the hottest parts of summer or coldest days of winter. The smallest issue with your HVAC system if left unattended to can lead to costly damages, and unfortunately, many of these issues are easy to miss by the untrained eye.
With routine HVAC maintenance, a professional will catch small problems and solve them before they turn into anything to stress about.
Improve Indoor Air Quality
Did you know that according to the EPA, the concentration of pollutants in indoor air can be two to five times higher than outdoor air? Viruses, bacteria, mold, mildew, and fungus when combined with stale, unventilated air in your home can lead to sickness, worsening of asthma conditions, new and worsened allergies, and more.
The air that you and your family breath at home runs through your vents and HVAC system, so routine HVAC maintenance is essential to improving indoor air quality.
Regular HVAC maintenance will ensure your HVAC system and vents are clean and functioning optimally, so they do their part in removing pollutants from the air. This means your family can enjoy fewer allergies, fewer asthma attacks, reduced spreading of illnesses, better skin conditions, and more.
Save Energy and Reduce Electricity Bills
There are so many seemingly insignificant factors that can lead to the reduced efficiency of your HVAC system. When your heating and cooling system doesn’t function efficiently, it can lead to issues like hot and cold spots throughout your home and higher electricity bills.
Regular HVAC maintenance ensures that your system is always running optimally, allowing you to cut back on energy and costs. Some studies show that proper HVAC maintenance can reduce energy use by up to 40%.
Many homeowners don’t realize how easy it is to void HVAC warranties with small mistakes. One of the mistakes that will void most HVAC warranties is a failure to keep up with routine maintenance performed by a licensed HVAC professional. Regular maintenance helps ensure that in the event of a repair, the expensive parts of your HVAC system are still covered under the manufacturer’s warranty.
Enhance Home Saftey
Some problems with HVAC systems can lead to costly repairs and stress, but other issues can lead to far worse; putting the health and safety of you and your family at risk. For example, an unexpected HVAC leak can release carbon monoxide that can cause lung infections, hospitalization, and in extreme cases, even death.
Through routine maintenance, you get the chance to develop a relationship with your local HVAC technician, and in return, they can become familiar with your home and HVAC system. Through this familiarity, they can more easily and more quickly find solutions to problems that arise, saving you time and money.
