HVAC: Top reasons for routine maintenance

by Julia Brown and Barry Weiss Weiss 09/21/2022

Your HVAC system is responsible for keeping your home feeling as warm or cool as needed, so it's important to keep it in good condition. Wear and tear can occur as your HVAC system runs over the years, which can result in damage or inefficient heating and cooling. Having routine HVAC maintenance done can help keep your system operating properly. When you have HVAC maintenance done once or twice a year, you can expect the following benefits.

Better energy efficiency

Parts of your HVAC system can become worn over time, resulting in reduced energy efficiency. Having maintenance done, which includes cleaning, tightening and inspecting components as needed, helps ensure your system runs as efficiently as possible. This leads to lower energy usage and a decrease in your energy bills, which can add up to significant savings throughout the year.

Healthier indoor air quality

HVAC maintenance visits include having your HVAC equipment cleaned. You might not realize how much dust and other debris can build up inside your HVAC system over time. These particles then enter your home when you have your air conditioning or heat running.

A clean HVAC system helps boost your home's indoor air quality, resulting in healthier air and a lower the risk of respiratory illnesses and other health problems.

Decreased risk of costly repairs

When you have HVAC maintenance done, technicians check for any signs of problems that should be handled sooner rather than later. These minor problems can turn into major HVAC repairs if they're not found and fixed early.

Routine HVAC maintenance helps lower the risk of costly repairs or total breakdowns. HVAC technicians can repair or replace worn or damaged components before they cause bigger problems with your HVAC system.

More comfortable interior

HVAC maintenance can help your home feel more comfortable during the year. Technicians can thoroughly check your HVAC system during maintenance visits and search for any issues that could affect your home's comfort level, which helps ensure your home feels warmer during winter and cooler during summer.

Longer HVAC system lifespan

Scheduling routine HVAC maintenance once or twice a year can help your HVAC system last longer, preventing you from having to purchase a new HVAC system earlier than expected. Instead, you can enjoy having a reliable HVAC system that continues to run efficiently for years to come.
