The health of your HVAC system is very important because it encourages home comfort and healthy indoor air quality. But a well-functioning HVAC system doesn’t happen spontaneously. Your furnace and air conditioner work hard all year-round, which exposes them to a wide assortment of common issues.
These issues are often simple enough that they rarely prevent your furnace or air conditioner from running. However, they could hamper energy efficiency—and your utility costs. If these issues expand, your entire system may be threatened. These are headaches and costs you can prevent with routine HVAC maintenance.
Why HVAC Maintenance is Necessary
If the furnace or air conditioner was recently installed or seems to be running just fine, you might question why HVAC maintenance is necessary. Here’s what this routine service can provide you.
Keeps Your Warranty in Tact
A warranty supports you when your HVAC system is in need of repairs. But ignoring yearly maintenance nullifies your warranty. Using a short amount on a tune-up now could help you avoid costly repairs that your warranty would otherwise cover.
Uncovers Minor Issues Ahead of Time
Avoiding huge issues in the first place is the ideal approach to care for your HVAC system. Consistent maintenance visits allow the opportunity to comprehensively check and lubricate important internal parts. It also provides a chance for repairs before the peak heating or cooling season arrives. You’ll spend less money across your system’s life span if issues are resolved as they begin.
Could Boost Energy Efficiency
Yearly maintenance is about more than minimizing breakdowns. It’s also about keeping your system performing as well as possible. The enhanced performance might lower your energy expenses by around 30%.
Might Help Your System Work Longer
When your HVAC system functions the way it should, it can last years longer. Many furnaces and air conditioners have a 15-year life span, but annual maintenance may extend this even longer.
