Why HVAC Maintenance is Important

Your HVAC is one of the most important pieces of equipment in your home (and likely one of the most expensive).  As a homeowner, maintaining your heating and cooling system is paramount in keeping it in optimal working condition. Without regular maintenance, your HVAC will not be able to keep up with the heat as summer temperatures soar, and your unit may break down prematurely. Learn more about the importance of HVAC maintenance below.

Indoor Air Quality (IAQ)

If your HVAC has not been cleaned, your system may spread pollutants like pet dander, dust, and pollen throughout your home, triggering allergy or asthma symptoms, sore throats, eye irritation, and rashes. It’s also important to note that if your filters are dirty due to lack of replacement, this will block the airflow in the ductwork and force the system to work harder, which shortens the lifespan of your HVAC. You should ensure professionals clean your HVAC system regularly and consider replacing your system’s air filter at least once per month.

Enhanced Comfort & Reduced Cost

Residential HVAC maintenance will prevent drafts and keep temperature across rooms consistent. You will save more energy, and you can avoid an increase in your utility bills. Further, an optimized system will use less energy to cool and heat your home, keeping more money in your pocket. Regular inspections identify problems to prevent unexpected bills when the system fails.

Fewer HVAC Repairs & Prevention of System Breakdowns

Annual HVAC preventative maintenance will lead to fewer repairs in the future. An expert HVAC technician can spot any issues early before the issue has time to escalate to a large-scale, very costly, HVAC replacement. What’s more, identifying problems early on can help you plan financially for repairs, instead of incurring the cost unexpectedly. Additionally, while having your system inspected by an expert tech, they will replace any worn-out parts that can cause potential problems in the future. If the air filter is the issue, they will replace that for you, too.

Another benefit of regular HVAC maintenance is that your unit will last longer. An HVAC unit lasts about 10 years, however; with regular tune-ups, you can extend that to roughly 15 years. Replacing worn-out parts (something that can be done with regular HVAC maintenance) will extend the system’s entire lifespan.
