Do I Really Need AC Maintenance?

Your HVAC system is probably one of the hardest working machines in your home. It keeps your family comfortable throughout the coldest nights of winter and the warmest days of summer. If you have ever questioned whether HVAC maintenance is really necessary, we completely understand, and that’s why we write this blog post to help you understand just how essential it is.

Here are some of the top reasons you need to schedule AC maintenance:

Increases Efficiency

A well-cared-for and recently inspected system will always run more efficiently than one that is neglected and forgotten. This is one of the main reasons we encourage all of our customers to schedule routine preventative maintenance.

We recommend scheduling your maintenance on a seasonal schedule, once in the spring and once in the fall, to make sure your system is ready for the high-demand times.

During a maintenance appointment, your HVAC technician will:

  • Inspect the system from head to toe
  • Clean the coils and fans
  • Replace the air filters
  • Check for leaks and more
  • Make sure your thermostat is correctly calibrated

Additionally, if your technician notices something out of the ordinary, they can provide recommended solutions or make any necessary repairs right there.

Alleviates Allergies

Does anyone in your home have allergies? If so, your home’s indoor air quality could be aggravating them. Contaminants like dirt, dust, bacteria, and mold all circulate through your home’s duct system and other HVAC pieces, so keeping them clean is incredibly important. Additionally, replacing your system’s air filters regularly will ensure that most debris is trapped and kept from traveling through your home.

Preserves Your System

Annual HVAC maintenance will also extend the lifespan of your system! In fact, regular maintenance can increase your system’s lifespan up to 15 years!
