When is the last time the HVAC system in your home received a thorough professional maintenance?

If you aren’t sure or unaware that preventative maintenance is necessary for your HVAC systems, you need to read this. Most technicians don’t want you to know that your HVAC systems can last a lifetime if maintained properly. These comfort controlling devices need care and attention regularly, just like a vehicle does. Just like most vehicles that are used daily need periodical maintenance, your HVAC system should have scheduled services performed by a professional HVAC technician.

There are many benefits to making sure preventative HVAC maintenance is scheduled as recommended by a professional HVAC service. Both your heating and your cooling systems will run efficiently and reward you with longevity and maximum efficiency with regularly scheduled maintenance.

Here are 8 benefits to scheduling preventative maintenance on your HVAC systems regularly.

1. Prevents Your HVAC System From Breaking Down Unexpectedly

Having your heating system go down in the middle of the coldest seasons or your cooling system stop working in the heat of the hottest weather creates an immediate emergency repair situation. It forces you to drop everything you’re doing and focus on hiring a professional HVAC contractor, at the busiest time of any given season to help troubleshoot the problem.

Preventative maintenance on your HVAC systems allows you the greatest peace in mind to avoid unfortunate scenario’s like this. By doing regular heating ventilation and air conditioning maintenance you can prevent unexpected breakdowns and increase the life of your HVAC systems. It’ll reduce the chances of your HVAC system randomly giving out on you one day at the worst possible time.

2. Catches Problems with Parts in Your HVAC System Early

There are dozens and dozens of parts located inside the average HVAC system. Over time, many of these parts will start to show signs of wear and tear and without regular preventative maintenance may eventually give out on you.

In some cases, your entire HVAC system can shut down when these parts begin to fail. In other cases, compromised systems can perform at an extremely low efficiency, resulting in the machine needing to work harder to achieve minimal results. Not only does this mean you are unable to achieve the comfort level you are expecting, but harder working, efficient systems use more energy which costs you more money.  All too often households spend way more money on HVAC systems due to not performing regularly scheduled maintenance.

For these reasons alone, catching problems with any parts in your HVAC system as early as you possibly can benefit you. You don’t want to let an issue with a part linger for months and months at a time. Having a licensed HVAC contractor on a schedule performing preventative maintenance will help you avoid unnecessary emergencies, system failures, and costly repairs.

3. Lower Energy Bills By Optimizing Usage  

Have you noticed a dramatic increase in your energy bills in recent years?

You might be under the impression that your utility company is charging you more for energy, it could be an inefficient HVAC system that’s to blame.

When your HVAC system is struggling due to a lack of proper HVAC maintenance, it’ll often have to work harder to achieve the same results. Inefficient HVAC systems stay on longer to produce the required result and often drive energy costs way higher than they should be. If you think you have an efficiency issue, call a professional HVAC contractor like AirTight Air, Inc to schedule an inspection.

4. Improve The Air Quality In Your Home

If the indoor air quality in your home isn’t good, it can cause you to sneeze and cough more often than usual. It can also cause those with allergies to suffer a great deal.

Simply replacing your home’s furnace filter can work wonders for your indoor air quality, but if you want to be sure your breathing in fresh clean air,  have an HVAC contractor like AirTight Air perform preventative maintenance on your HVAC system. You might be able to improve your home’s indoor air quality and identify quality issues resulting from under-maintained equipment.

5. Keeps Your Home Comfortable at All Times

You rely on your home’s HVAC system to keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer. It’s a luxury that allows control of your home’s environment regardless of what the weather is like outside.

But if your HVAC system isn’t working properly due to neglecting HVAC preventative maintenance, you might start to notice your home getting cooler in the winter and warmer in the summer.

You may even notice that you are unable to control the climate after a while. Your home won’t be comfortable, and you’ll wish you had hired an HVAC technician to help you.

6. Ensure Your Home’s Safety

Do you have any idea how devastating it could be to have your heater malfunction while you’re away on vacation or out of town on business for a few days?

When your HVAC system stops working, it can cause your plumbing pipes to freeze, which in turn can lead to some of the pipes bursting which could flood your home. Your home is unsafe if it is not being maintained regularly.

That’s not the only way your HVAC system can make your home unsafe. A malfunctioning HVAC system can also release dangerous gases like carbon monoxide wafting through the air in your home. It can potentially be deadly if you don’t have carbon monoxide detectors installed.

By doing HVAC preventative maintenance, you’ll avoid these scary scenarios. You should never have to worry about excessive water damage or carbon monoxide poisoning in your home.

7. Keeps Your Home Eco-Friendly

Do you have solar panels on your roof? What about triple pane windows throughout your home?

Eco-friendly solutions are extremely popular and many homeowners have invested in or plan to invest in eco-friendly solutions.

HVAC preventative maintenance is another solution you can use to keep your home eco-friendly. Preventative maintenance on your HVAC system can be one of the most rewarding solutions you implement into your eco-friendly environment.  

Your HVAC system might be wasting energy and/or fuel by running more often than necessary trying to heat and cool your home. Not overlooking this simple solution can help our environment and help your home stay green and healthy.
