Why Air Conditioning Maintenance Matters
Apr 15, 2016
Would you drive your car fifty thousand miles without an oil change? Of course not! So why would you do the same to your HVAC system? It doesn’t make sense, yet many homeowners have a tendency to skip out on air conditioning maintenance, calling for a professional only when something breaks down.
It’s one of the most common mistakes HVAC professionals see in the industry. While regular service visits may not be free, they can save homeowners thousands in costly repairs later down the road, plus they provide other additional benefits!
What Does Air Conditioning Maintenance Do for Me?
Annual air conditioning maintenance appointments are like a check-up for your HVAC system. A professional comes out and services your unit, replacing pieces that experience natural wear and tear before they become a major problem.
This preventative maintenance call has several other benefits as well. Through time, your HVAC system builds up dust, debris and other particles that slowly begin to obstruct the airflow in your home. Left unattended, these obstructions force your air conditioning to work harder in order to cool or heat your home, thus expending more energy than necessary.
Part of air conditioning maintenance includes freeing your HVAC system of such debris so that air can continue to flow freely through your home, allowing it to cool or heat your home quicker and more efficiently.
However, the greatest benefit can be broken down into a single word: savings! On top of extending your HVAC systems life span and efficiency, you’ll also be reducing your energy bill, too! Studies conducted by the EPA have shown that failing to conduct regular air conditioning maintenance on your HVAC system can cost you as much as 50% more a month to run!
