Routine HVAC Maintenance: Why You Shouldn't Ignore It

August 3, 2015 | Blog

Routine HVAC Maintenance: Why You Shouldn't Ignore ItThe mechanical equipment that comprises the HVAC system needs regular preventive care to stay in good working condition. Annual maintenance keeps the equipment operating efficiently so it uses less energy, but it can also prevent unnecessary repairs, premature failures and protect your family from safety and health issues. Here’s a closer look at the problems you can avoid by scheduling routine HVAC maintenance.

Higher Monthly Utility Bills

If you ignore yearly professional maintenance because the HVAC system seems to be working fine, the equipment’s energy efficiency can decline by about 5 percent each season. In contrast, having the system inspected, cleaned and tuned up once a year by a knowledgeable HVAC pro ensures it’s consistently working at maximum efficiency, which keeps your monthly utility bills under control.

Costly Breakdowns and Repairs

In addition to lower operating costs, routine HVAC maintenance can save you the inconvenience and extra expense of untimely breakdowns and repairs. Properly maintaining the equipment not only helps prevent performance problems from developing in the first place, but the in-depth inspection the system receives also gives the technician an opportunity to find and address any minor issues before they become serious.

Compromised Health and Safety

Ignoring yearly preventative maintenance can also allow issues to arise that impact the health and safety of everyone in the household. Leaks in the ductwork can pull allergens, bacteria, viruses, mold and other unhealthy particles lurking in unfinished areas into the air supply. It can also draw in carbon monoxide via exhaust fumes from a backdrafting gas furnace or water heater. Hazards like loose electrical connections, faulty wiring or leaks in the fuel lines leave you vulnerable to an increased risk of fire.

Premature Equipment Failures

HVAC components that don’t receive regular maintenance have to work harder, and the additional wear and strain can shorten their life and leave you facing costly, premature replacements. By keeping the equipment well maintained, you’ll help extend its expected service life instead.

Great company. Contacted my current AC company to check on my warranty before charging me anything. Saved me a bunch of money and headache if dealing with anything. Would definitely recommend them and use them again.
