Why It’s Important to Get Annual HVAC Maintenance
Like any other household appliance, HVAC systems require annual maintenance to operate effectively. HVAC maintenance is critical to avoiding the need for costly, significant repairs or whole replacements. The majority of HVAC experts advise tune-ups twice per year, once in the autumn before you put on the heating and once in the springtime before you turn on the cooling system.
During these visits, an HVAC technician will go over a checklist of items that need to be examined and cleaned, as well as propose any repairs that are required to avoid a breakdown. Here are several reasons why you should schedule annual HVAC maintenance.
Prevent Expensive Repairs
When you perform preventative maintenance, you will be able to prevent emergency AC repairs. During a preventative maintenance service call, a trained HVAC expert will be able to identify problematic areas. This will help you to address any concerns before they become major difficulties.
Typical wear and tear, as well as numerous faults, can be repaired if recognized early. And they are less expensive and less stressful to repair. HVAC systems are serviced in the spring and autumn months when the temperature is mild so that any repairs will be less disruptive than during winter or summer.
Small problems can soon worsen if your HVAC system is not maintained annually. When the weather is bad, the demand for professional HVAC service calls is generally high, so you might have to wait a while.
In an HVAC emergency, you will be left vulnerable to the summer heat or the winter cold while the repair or replacement is being made. You’ll significantly lower your likelihood of encountering emergencies by doing appropriate maintenance.
Reduce Energy Usage
When you hire Revival Heating & Cooling to maintain your HVAC equipment, we will keep it running efficiently. The stages in preventative maintenance carefully test, examine, and clean the various components of your HVAC system. This will ensure that the system runs as efficiently as possible.
When your HVAC unit is operating at peak efficiency, it won’t have to operate as hard to keep your home comfortable. This means you’ll use less energy and save money on your power bill.
If you do not maintain your HVAC equipment, it will have to work more and harder over time to deliver the same level of output. For instance, filters will become blocked with dust and dirt if they are not cleaned and replaced annually. This will significantly reduce airflow and cause your heater and AC to work extra to heat or cool your house. It may also cause components to wear out faster than they would ordinarily.
Enhance Indoor Air Quality
A well-maintained HVAC system can guarantee that you have improved indoor air quality in the house or workplace. Your HVAC system’s purpose includes filtering contaminants from the air so that you and your household or coworkers breathe in clean air.
U.S. citizens spend around 90% of their time indoors. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the concentration of many contaminants indoors is two to five times higher than the typical outdoor concentration. If you don’t keep your HVAC system in good working order, you won’t be filtering out many dangerous particles that can cause lung irritation, asthma, and headaches.
A clean filter will perform a better job of capturing air particles and preventing indoor air pollution. A clean heat pump or AC coil will also provide you with a healthier house. A whole-house air purification device or in-duct purification system may keep your system clean while actively filtering the air to a better quality.
Maintain Your HVAC Warranty
If your HVAC components are still covered by warranty, you should be aware that many manufacturers need proof of annual maintenance before they would pay out a claim. When you perform annual HVAC maintenance, you’re really purchasing insurance for yourself.
If a problem occurs and it’s covered by your warranty, your HVAC technician would be able to submit a claim easily and confidently if you’ve got maintenance records. If you continue to use the same HVAC firm, they may retain all of your maintenance documents and warranties on record to simplify things for you.
When it comes time to sell your property, an HVAC yearly maintenance record might help you sell it faster. Prospective home buyers prefer homes with properly maintained HVAC systems.
Longer System Lifespan
Because a new system might cost you thousands of dollars, you want to get as much life as possible out of your current unit. Unfortunately, your HVAC equipment will eventually wear out unless you plan frequent tune-ups.
Most HVAC units are built to endure 10 – 15 years. Registering for an HVAC maintenance plan will help you meet or even exceed this milestone. Don’t take a gamble with such a significant investment. Give your unit the attention it needs so it can continue to perform for years to come.
Save the Environment
Global warming is a big concern in our modern age, and we all have a duty to protect the ecosystem. The energy we use to run our HVAC systems emits carbon into the environment, but when they are properly maintained, their energy usage is reduced dramatically, resulting in less carbon being produced. Furthermore, if your air conditioner leaks refrigerant, it will emit greenhouse gases that are harmful to the environment. By scheduling HVAC maintenance, you will also contribute to environmental preservation.
Healthy and Safer Home
You may keep your Vancouver house and family safer by performing annual HVAC maintenance. This is due to the fact that an HVAC professional will test for carbon monoxide leakage, which may be dangerous to everyone within the property. Electrical hazards are another problem that HVAC maintenance may prevent.
Furthermore, regardless of efficiency, all gas-burning furnaces emit some carbon monoxide. Carbon monoxide is deadly and odorless. Without maintenance, your system may produce excess carbon monoxide, putting you and your family at risk.
Every year, around 50,000 individuals in the U.S. visit the ER due to carbon monoxide poisoning. It also kills over 400 individuals. For this reason, whenever we install new HVAC systems, we also always add carbon monoxide and smoke detectors.
Leave It to The Pros
HVAC maintenance should be left to experts since they have the appropriate tools and skills. You have no way of knowing if the system controls are operating correctly if you don’t know anything about them, so you should get them checked by a professional HVAC specialist.
