How Important is HVAC Maintenance?

A dependable and efficiently operating HVAC system creates more than a comfortable environment in our homes; heating, ventilation, in many areas, a functioning heating, ventilation and/or air conditioning system is vital. When the temperature dips below freezing, heat becomes a necessity.

Therefore, HVAC maintenance needs to be included in a homeowner’s budgeting and planning process.

Validating your Warranty

If you have a newer HVAC system that is under warranty, check the details of your purchase agreement. Often, to maintain the validity of your warranty, manufacturers will require that work performed on your units are completed by trained HVAC technicians.

Additionally, many manufacturers expect that you will have annual preventative maintenance completed on your HVAC system. Failure to schedule annual tune-ups with trained HVAC professionals can jeopardize your warranty. Be sure to keep your receipts!

Improve the Air Quality in your Home

We spend many hours inside our home. Working from home, attending online school, and just enjoying the comforts of our houses keeps us indoors. This means that we need to have clean air circulating throughout our homes.

HVAC maintenance will help ensure that the quality of the air that you and your family breathe is safe. Trained HVAC technicians will change the filters in your HVAC system. They will also monitor the carbon monoxide levels in your home. A thorough cleaning of your vents, ductwork, and registers will remove any risk of dust and moisture buildup in your HVAC system.

Reduce the Potential for Unexpected Breakdowns

Annual tune-ups and analysis of how efficiently your HVAC system is operating will help reduce the need for unplanned repairs. Not only will you be able to work with your HVAC company to plan for upgrades to your system, but you will also dramatically reduce the potential for a midnight emergency repair call.

Control Repair Costs

A finely tuned heating and cooling system will operate efficiently. This reduces uneven wear and tear on your HVAC units. Also, your units will not strain when they are running because of worn out parts. HVAC maintenance will note potential issues with your units. Small and minor repairs can be performed before a problem causes a major malfunction of your HVAC system.

Reduce Utility Consumption

Energy costs continue to rise. One way to reduce your utility bill is to reduce the amount of energy that your home consumes. Issues such as clogged filters cause your heating and cooling units to work harder, which takes more energy. Your HVAC technician will analyze your entire system and work with you to identify other ways to reduce and control the amount of energy your units consume.

This will not negatively affect the comfortable temperatures in your home provided by your HVAC system.

Lengthen the Lifespan of your System

HVAC systems that have not been properly maintained will often need to be replaced sooner than those that have been maintained. The longer you can safely operate your current HVAC system, the more money you save. New HVAC units can be an expensive investment.
