Preventative Maintenance for HVAC Systems
Posted on January 10th, 2016 by carrolladmin
Preventative maintenance is critical to the performance and longevity of every HVAC system. Just like cars require oil changes to run properly, HVAC systems need tuning up to operate efficiently. Regular service is important for a number of reasons. Perhaps the most significant is that routine maintenance detects problems before they become major, costly repairs. The long and the short of it is that putting a little bit of money into preventative HVAC maintenance will likely generate long-term savings.
HVAC equipment and system types vary from home to home. Many newer homes are heated and cooled via heat pump. Older homes may feature original baseboard or boiler systems. Homes built mid-century are oftentimes equipped with separate heating and cooling elements, like a furnace and air handler. While every system is unique, one factor remains the same—all HVAC systems require maintenance.
Why perform routine maintenance?
Reliable Performance—Service is recommended twice a year, once before heating season and again before cooling season. This ensures your system is in optimal condition before peak usage months.
Energy Savings—HVAC is one of the top energy expenses in homes. When the system is clean and properly maintained, energy bills go down while indoor comfort goes up.
Indoor Comfort—HVAC systems also impact the air we breathe. Regular maintenance flushes out accumulated allergens like dust, dirt and pollen so that indoor air is cleaner and higher quality.
Cost Effective—The investment in preventative maintenance is minimal compared to costly repairs and equipment replacements on systems that are not well maintained. In the bigger picture, the cost of a maintenance plan will likely pay for itself.
