Heating and cooling systems are among the most important things to maintain in your home. These systems keep your home comfortable in all seasons. There is nothing worse than coming home to find that the HVAC system has failed in the middle of winter or during a heat wave in July. Regular system maintenance is critical to keeping everything in proper working order. Here are some advantages to scheduling preventive maintenance for your HVAC system.
Fewer repairs– Regular maintenance allows technicians to catch small problems before they become a major expensive repair. This can save the homeowner money in the long run.
System Longevity– Maintaining the HVAC system can increase its lifespan. A unit that is regularly serviced and cleaned will run as it should with fewer break downs. Just as your vehicle will run longer with regular maintenance, so will your HVAC system.
Lower Energy Bills– Systems that are not well maintained don’t run as efficiently as they should. This can result in higher utility bills for the homeowner.
Better Air Quality– An HVAC system that is regularly cleaned and maintained will provide better air quality in your home. Regular maintenance includes changing the air filters.
Regular HVAC preventive maintenance can pay for itself by preventing future repairs or expensive break downs. There are many things the average homeowner is not trained to do. An experienced HVAC technician will perform a thorough inspection of the system and all its components. The technician will lubricate moving parts, check the condensation drain, check and repair any leaks in the system, check the system controls and thermostat, and clean the blower, evaporator, and condenser coils. Having a preventive maintenance relationship with an HVAC company may offer other benefits to the homeowner, such as discounts on repairs and priority service scheduling when there is a problem.
