The old adage that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure applies to most things in life. The problem is that something always seems to get in the way of taking care of that prevention. Perhaps it is something that you didn’t have time to get around to, or maybe it is something that seemed to cost too much at the time. Whatever the reason, many of us skip prevention until something stops working, and we need a cure. In the case of HVAC, this is especially true, since it is often out of sight and out of mind. If this sounds like you, it is time to change your ways. Preventative HVAC maintenance is incredibly essential and provides many benefits in exchange for the investment.
Air Quality And Environmental Impact
One of the biggest benefits of HVAC maintenance is improved indoor air quality. Indoor air can be anywhere from 5 to 100 times as polluted as outdoor air. These pollutants range from mold and mildew to animal dander to pollen and dust to smoke, and they can be a huge problem for people with respiratory issues. Routine maintenance helps you keep your indoor air cleaner. It also helps you reduce your carbon footprint because a well-maintained HVAC unit runs more efficiently.
Comfort, Safety, And Peace Of Mind
Regular HVAC maintenance keeps your HVAC system running correctly so that you never come home to an uncomfortable house because it malfunctioned. Preventative tasks also make sure that your whole home is as comfortable as it can be, instead of some rooms just being too hot or cold because the system can’t get the cool or warm air to them. Preventative maintenance also keeps your system running safely so that your home doesn’t get too cold in the winter (causing your pipes to freeze) or build up dangerous substances like Carbon Monoxide.
A well-maintained system will cost you less money in the long run in a variety of ways. Repairing the system and any damage that a breakdown causes will certainly cost more than simple maintenance. If your system is under warranty, you will have to provide proof of required maintenance or your warranty could be voided. Finally, a well-maintained system will also save you money on energy costs because it runs more efficiently, and the system will last longer than a poorly maintained one.
