There’s no doubt that regular maintenance is beneficial to your HVAC system, from heating to cooling. You get tune ups for your vehicle on a regular basis, so why wouldn’t you do the same for your HVAC system? Regular maintenance includes periodic checks of your HVAC system to make small repairs, clean the unit, test it out, and spot any potential problems before they worsen.
Signing up for a maintenance plan is a wise move because it ensures your system is running optimally at all times of the year so there are no surprises. Here are five benefits of HVAC maintenance plans to think about.
1. Maintenance Plans Help to Prevent Costly Repairs
Preventive maintenance can catch small degrees of damage to your HVAC system before things get out of control and lead to very expensive repairs. It makes sense that when you catch issues early on, you save money on repairs and ensure your system is ready in the case of emergency.
In addition, a well-maintained HVAC system simply works more efficiently, which saves you money on energy bills.
2. Maintenance Plans Extend the Life of Your HVAC System
Most HVAC systems last about 15 years, with well-maintained ones lasting up to 20 and beyond. Poorly-maintained systems may only last five years or less. Routine maintenance keeps your AC and furnace running at peak performance.
3. Maintenance Plans Increase Air Quality
Did you know that indoor airborne contaminant levels are often higher than outside levels? Those levels can get dangerous if you have neglected your HVAC system. You should be especially concerned about this if you have respiratory conditions such as asthma or allergies. Common indoor allergens include pet dander, cigarette smoke, dust mites, pollen, mold, and just plain dust. By maintaining your HVAC system, you can prevent an overabundance of these allergens as well as musty odors.
4. Maintenance Plans Ensure HVAC Performance
Your HVAC system keeps you comfortable throughout the seasons, distributing warm or cold air more evenly when you engage in routine maintenance. Regular maintenance also makes it less likely that your system would break down without warning in extreme temperatures. Cleaning your ductwork and taking preventative measures ensures your house has even heating and cooling for the utmost in comfort.
5. Maintenance Plans Give Homeowners Peace of Mind
Preventative maintenance gives you peace of mind because you know that your home is well-equipped to handle the rigors of the weather. When you know your system circulates only fresh, clean air when you need it, you can concentrate on other important household tasks and rest easy.
