4 Reasons Your HVAC Needs Annual Maintenance

post img

Midwestern weather is always unpredictable. Ensuring year-round comfort requires consistent maintenance of your HVAC system. Routine upkeep from a professional HVAC technician is important to keep your unit in optimal condition. Here are four reasons why your HVAC system needs annual maintenance.

Regular maintenance can prevent costly and unexpected repairs. 

Preventive maintenance is a proactive approach to preserving the functionality and longevity of your HVAC. Our team of skilled technicians is trained to meticulously inspect every component of your HVAC system, from the air filters to the ductwork, identifying any signs of wear, tear, or potential issues. 

We will expose underlying issues early on and address problems before they become costly repairs or full system replacements.

Preventative maintenance will increase the longevity of your unit. 

Most HVAC units typically last 10 to 15 years, depending on the frequency of servicing. Keeping your unit in top-notch condition will help your system operate efficiently and extend its lifespan.

We inspect your furnace by checking the heat exchanger, testing and adjusting burners, testing and adjusting the ignition, and much more. 

Our technicians can give you a comprehensive overview of your HVAC system and recommend repairs, replacements, or upgrades to enhance efficiency and lower utility bills. 

Save money on your energy bills every month with routine AC maintenance. 

A study conducted by the U.S Department of Energy showed a 20% increase in efficiency on regularly maintained units. 

Regular HVAC maintenance can determine whether your unit is running efficiently. Poor AC performance can result in a decline in air conditioning quality.

When a unit is not running efficiently, it means it’s not working at its best and using more energy than needed. This leads to a rise in energy costs as the unit uses more energy to perform its tasks. If your AC is inefficient, it will take longer to cool your home. This means that it will run for more time and use more electricity.

Poor-performing HVAC systems can lead to health problems. 

When dust and debris accumulate in your air filter, it can decrease the air quality within your home. The air filter catches and eliminates particles in the air but loses its ability to function properly if it becomes blocked. As a result, the air circulating in your home may contain a higher concentration of pollutants, allergens, and irritants.

The presence of dirty filters can have a significant impact on individuals who suffer from allergies. Air filters commonly trap allergens such as pollen, pet dander, mold spores, and dust mites. Dirty filters are less effective at trapping allergens, so allergens can freely move around in the air.

Your furnace’s heat exchanger transfers heat from the combustion chamber to the air around it, which is important. Damages or cracks in the heat exchanger can lead to the release of carbon monoxide into your home’s air and pose a serious health risk.

Regular maintenance and inspections by a qualified technician are crucial to reducing the risk of carbon monoxide emissions. During routine checks, our technicians examine the heat exchanger for any signs of cracks, corrosion, or damage.

Joining an HVAC service club is worth the investment.
