Why Keeping Up With Regular Maintenance Is So Important

Everyone’s HVAC systems need to be cared for or it’s guaranteed to cost you more in the long run. From more money spent to system failure on a hot summer night, when your HVAC system isn’t maintained, you’ll face some costly and uncomfortable consequences. Read on to find out more reasons why keeping up with regular maintenance on HVAC systems is so important!

Prevention of Costly Repairs

HVAC issues can cost some major money and can easily be avoided when you make regular maintenance a priority. A skilled HVAC technician will often spot problem areas in a maintenance checkup before they become a costly surprise. Many malfunctions or normal wear and tear can be corrected for less money when detected early. If you are not regularly servicing your HVAC system, small issues can quickly turn into large problems. Imagine having a small $50 issue and then it turns into having to replace your entire HVAC system! Have your expert technician at ACE come out regularly for maintenance checkups on your HVAC, to ensure that costly repairs don’t happen to you.

Improvement of the Quality of Air in Your Home

One of many functions of your HVAC system is to filter out pollutants in the air. When your system is broken or dirty, the rate of this function can decrease and the quality of air in your home can be infected. You may not think that the danger of pollutants indoors is anything to worry about, but the EPA estimates that indoor pollutant levels are generally 2-5 times higher than outdoor levels. Your HVAC system has to work hard to filter out allergens and pollutants, therefore the more efficient the system, the better your air quality will be.

 Extension of your HVAC system life

Just like a car, the better you take care of it the longer the life of the car will be. This is the same for your HVAC system. With proper HVAC maintenance, a unit can last well over 10 years. HVAC units aren’t cheap to have installed, so it makes sense anyone would want to make their system last as long as possible. With proper maintenance, you can push paying for a new system well into the future.

Higher Efficiency

A maintained HVAC unit will run more efficiently, no surprise there. Research shows that dirty or unmaintained units need to work 20 percent harder to produce the same amount of cooling or heating as a well-maintained system. In conclusion, less energy will be expended when it is running, which means less stress and less money spent. Future maintenance will be much quicker and smoother if a person keeps up with regular maintenance throughout the year.
