Your HVAC system is a big part of your home or commercial building. It carries the weight of making sure that the building remains comfortable. In the most extreme weather, such as the polar vortex cold snap or extreme heat that we see in midsummer, your HVAC system is actually keeping you and your family safe. So it makes sense to keep that system running as well as possible. The best way to do that is with regular maintenance. Read on for great reasons that spending the money on preventative maintenance is worth it in the long run.
Comfort and Safety
Your HVAC unit keeps you comfortable year round, but without proper maintenance, it will start to fail. What feels like a single room that just doesn’t get as cool or warm as the rest of the house, could actually be a sign of vents that need to be cleaned. Preventative maintenance like this keeps your system working a peak condition. It also keeps the system working safely, keeping your family safe from Carbon Monoxide and the extremes of the weather. If a storm has ever caused a power outage in the middle of summer, you know how quickly your home can become uncomfortable and even dangerous without your HVAC working correctly.
The Green Choice
Preventative maintenance keeps your HVAC operating efficiently. This means that it burns less fuel to do the work that it needs to do, resulting in a greener home and a smaller carbon footprint.
Often the air inside your home has more contaminants than the outside air, which can make people with respiratory issues really sick. Preventative maintenance of your HVAC and ducts can help improve indoor air quality and rid your house of issues like mold and mildew.
There are many ways that preventative maintenance actually saves you money. A system that runs efficiently will cost you less on your utility bills. A system that gets regular maintenance is also less likely to break down, which often costs a lot in repairs. Well maintained systems also have a longer lifespan, so you decrease the number of times you need to replace the unit. Finally, most HVAC manufacturers require proof of annual maintenance for your system to stay under warranty, and without it, they won’t cover issues.
