What if we told you that a small investment could save money, breathe cleaner air, enjoy increased safety and comfort in your home, and help the environment while boosting your overall peace of mind? Keep reading to learn more about how regular HVAC maintenance can be a worthwhile investment.
Regular HVAC maintenance is said to reduce the risk of costly breakdowns by as much as 95%. Chances are you wouldn’t drive your car for 50,000 miles without getting an oil change; you’d be asking for trouble. This analogy holds true for your heating and cooling system (and any mechanical system).
If a musty odor has you concerned about mold, it may be time to consider having the air ducts professionally cleaned. Generally speaking, preventive maintenance helps ensure that the warm or cold air pumping through your vents is as clean and well-filtered as possible.
Regular maintenance helps your system produce and distribute the warm or cool air more evenly and reduces the odds that you’ll come home to warm air blasting through your vents. Regular maintenance will also minimize the chances that HVAC noises or smells will disrupt your quality of life.
For those concerned about their green footprint, keep in mind that a well-maintained HVAC system consumes considerably less fuel – and that’s good for the planet. Such homeowners will also want to be aware of what kind of refrigerant is used in their system since the EPA has been working to phase out substances that harm the environment.
Preventive HVAC maintenance also helps safeguard you and your family against the risk of carbon monoxide as well as other dangerous gasses.
Finally, investing in a preventive maintenance plan gives you the comfort of knowing that if something goes wrong, you’re in good hands with an HVAC contractor that knows you and knows your system.
