Avoid HVAC Emergencies
If you could stay ahead of a complete HVAC system breakdown, you definitely would. Well, that is exactly what regular HVAC maintenance does. It helps to prevent larger problems. After all, no problem just pops up overnight. HVAC repairs start out as very small issues like a loose screw, or lack of lubrication. Over time the small issues grow into bigger ones that can damage your HVAC system to the point of a breakdown. When you invest in maintenance, you are almost guaranteeing that you won’t face an HVAC emergency in the near future.
Extend the Lifespan
Similar to staying ahead of emergencies, you would probably also do you anything you could to make your system lasts longer. Thankfully, regular HVAC maintenance does just that. It’s like anything else, when you take care of your belongings, they’re going to last longer. HVAC systems last around 15 years on average. Some can last for 20 years or more, and regular maintenance is the ticket to that extended life. If your system is working great, scheduling maintenance can seem like overkill; but it’s not when your system lasts for years longer than you expect.
Improve Air Quality
When your HVAC system loses efficiency, it can really harm your indoor air quality. But when you take care of your HVAC system, you can help to keep contaminants and allergens at bay. During our maintenance appointments at clients’ homes, we wipe down the inside of your HVAC system and address any problems like holes in your ductwork that can allow dust and dirt to get into your system. We can also look for signs of mold and mildew, because once those begin growing they can spread quickly.
Improve Energy Efficiency
Without regular maintenance your HVAC system is going to lose around 5% of its energy efficiency each year. But, when you invest in regular maintenance, you can make small tweaks year after year to keep your HVAC system running at its best. In fact, the energy savings you benefit from may just pay for the maintenance so that it all evens out at the end of the year. Spending 5% more may not seem like a whole lot, but it is when you add it up over five years. Without maintenance, you could be spending 25% more on your energy costs for the same (or worse) results.
