Taking care of your HVAC system is just as important as taking care of your car. While your unit may not have a check engine light to tell you when something isn’t working the way it should, it’s important to schedule tune-ups to maintain your system’s health.
Island Airco is here to walk you through some of the benefits of regular HVAC maintenance.
Lower Breakdown Risk
System breakdowns are a huge headache any time of the year, but especially during sweltering summers and frigid winters. Over time, different system components will start to wear down and eventually break. Since all of these components work together to cool and warm your home, one worn component can put stress on other parts of the system. This leads to the need for more extensive and costly repairs.
Regular preventative maintenance will reduce the number of breakdowns and necessary repairs by identifying worn parts early. This allows them the time for replacement well before they break, minimizing repair costs.
Longer System Lifespan
When your system finally calls it quits, replacing the unit can be a costly and time-consuming process. On average, HVAC systems can last between 15 to 25 years. With regularly scheduled maintenance, your unit is more likely to reach the upper part of that range!
Saves Energy And Money
An HVAC system that requires frequent repairs and isn’t maintained regularly won’t run efficiently. An inefficient unit will have to work harder to maintain the set temperature in your home. As the unit works harder, it requires more energy to do the same amount of work over time.
While you might not see a huge rise in your energy bill right away, the increased energy usage will add up over time. An increasing energy bill can be an indicator that you might need a system tune-up if you haven’t had one done in a while.
Healthier Home Air
Along with keeping your home at a comfortable temperature, your HVAC system also handles your indoor air quality. If your system is functioning the way it should, most of the pollutants in your home get filtered as the air circulates. This can include things like pet dander and household allergens. If your system isn’t properly maintained, these pollutants will linger in the air and negatively impact your health
Ensuring that your system is filtering the air properly will improve your indoor air quality and home health. Scheduling a tune-up before seasons where allergens are higher will help you breathe easier!
Eureka Springs HVAC Maintenance
For most systems, we recommend scheduling a seasonal HVAC tune-up twice per year. You can schedule a tune-up at any time, but the best time is at the beginning of each hot and cold season. This will ensure that your system is ready for the peak lows and highs of each season.
