Heating and Ventilation Air Conditioning (HVAC) systems require regular maintenance to function properly. Maryland weather entails some hot summers and cold winters, so you need your HVAC system to be working properly. Most HVAC companies suggest fine-tuning your HVAC system twice a year – in the fall and the spring. But in addition to having your HVAC system serviced by a professional HVAC contractor, it’s also important to maintain your HVAC system on your own. Here’s why.
Fewer Repair Bills
When you stay up to date on maintenance for your HVAC system, you can expect to see fewer repairs. That’s because all HVAC systems, even the most reliable ones, will occasionally have problems. But regular maintenance means fewer repair problems because any issues will be spotted early. That means you can spend your time doing preventative maintenance rather than repairing your HVAC system, which is often more costly.
Maximize the System’s Lifespan
Replacing parts or even an entire HVAC system can be costly. That’s why it’s important to take good care of the HVAC system you have now. With regular maintenance, you can make your HVAC system last a long time. Not only will you prolong your HVAC system’s lifespan, but you will also lengthen the time between replacements, and keep it in better condition longer.
Routine maintenance can reveal safety issues that could endanger you and your household. If you have an electrical-powered HVAC system, an experienced technician can alert you to any short circuits that could cause a fire. Experienced HVAC technicians can also alert you to any excess carbon dioxide inside your home if you have a gas or oil-burning HVAC system. No matter if you have an electric, oil, or gas-powered HVAC system, professional routine maintenance will help keep your home safe.
Lower Utility Bills
A well-functioning HVAC system means lower utility bills. Doing simple maintenance tasks like changing filters and cleaning its parts will ensure that your unit doesn’t have to work harder than it should to make your house comfortable. Since your HVAC unit doesn’t have to work hard to keep your home comfortable, you can expect to see lower utility bills. Additionally, an HVAC technician can calibrate your thermostat controls to ensure they are working properly.
Better Indoor Air Quality
If you have a clogged air filter, your HVAC unit won’t be able to trap all the harmful particles in the air. As a result, your home will have those contaminants circling and hindering your home’s indoor air quality. While having good indoor air quality is important for every home, for households with people who suffer from allergies, asthma, and sinus problems, it’s especially important.
