Why Yearly HVAC Preventative Maintenance Is so Important

We Do Things Right The First Time.

hvac preventative maintenance

Joy to the world! The holiday season is upon us, bringing chilly weather and the seasonal spirit along with it.

If you haven’t scheduled your annual HVAC preventative maintenance check yet, you might want to soon.

Otherwise, you may find your season isn’t as cheery and bright as expected.

HVAC repairs and maintenance typically cost between $100 to $150 an hour. If it’s an emergency in the middle of the holidays, this cost can skyrocket. There’s also the chance you might find yourself without heat while friends and family are trying to celebrate the season with good cheer.

To ensure your system works year-round, you need HVAC maintenance. Keep reading to discover the benefits of scheduling your maintenance check every year!

Once you do, you can celebrate the season without worry!

1. Reduce Emergencies

What if you’re hosting a dinner party and your HVAC breaks down? Maybe you’re running late for work when it happens. Either way, there’s never a good time to need HVAC repairs.

You might also have a difficult time calling in a repairman when the appointment is last minute.

Instead of waiting for the worst to happen, schedule your HVAC preventative maintenance ahead of time.

Scheduling an annual checkup will help you avoid costly repairs. Instead, you can maintain your unit so it doesn’t crash unexpectedly. If repairs are necessary, you can schedule them on your schedule instead of when the timing is at the worst possible moment.

2. System Longevity

Scheduling HVAC preventative maintenance every year can increase your unit’s lifespan. Without proper maintenance, however, the unit will overwork itself. This can lead to the very repairs you’re trying to avoid.

A new system can also cost thousands.

Instead of paying for a new unit at the last minute, make sure your existing unit lasts.

Think of annual preventative maintenance like an annual checkup. The HVAC technician can take a look, note any problems, and suggest changes. Then, you can keep your system healthy and working at its best for an extended lifetime.

3. Healthy Air

Every day, we breathe in dust and other indoor allergens without realizing it. These often include:

These allergens can cause dozens of respiratory issues and harm your family’s health. For example, these allergens can irritate a family member’s asthma.

When you leave your HVAC unit unchecked or fail to replace your filters, these airborne pollutants will start to fill the air.

Improve your home’s air quality by calling an HVAC technician. They can check for these allergens and professionally clean your air ducts. Regular HVAC maintenance will also ensure your unit is working to limit these allergens.

Once your vents are clean and well-filtered, fresh air can pump through your home again.

4. Lower Utility Bills

In 2017, the average residential monthly electric bill was $111.67.

When you fail to clean your filters, your HVAC unit has to work twice as hard to push air through the system. As a result, this cost will slowly start to rise.

Annual preventative maintenance will ensure your unit is working at its peak efficiency. When your unit is working properly, it won’t have to use as much energy. As a result, you can cut your energy bills and start saving money.

Without AC preventative maintenance, however, your utility bills will only continue to increase.

5. Safety

Carbon dioxide is an odorless, poisonous gas. Without you realizing it, this gas can invade your living space when it’s not properly venting out of your home. Older furnaces that aren’t regularly maintained are also likely to produce additional carbon dioxide.

If not vented properly, this could put your family members at risk.

It’s important to schedule your annual HVAC maintenance to avoid this issue. Then, a technician can check to confirm your gas is venting and burning properly. After their checkup, you’ll have peace of mind that your home is safe for family members and guests.

6. Comfort

You expect your HVAC unit to keep your cool in the summertime and warm during the winter. When you neglect to schedule regular maintenance, however, your system won’t work at its best. As a result, your system might fail to keep you and your family members comfortable.

You might find your system doesn’t produce and distribute air evenly and steadily throughout your home.

If the system isn’t working properly, it might not respond to the settings on your screen, either.

Many people take HVAC preventative maintenance for granted until it’s too late. Instead of waiting for your unit to leave you chilly through winter weather, schedule a checkup. A technician can clean your ductwork and take other preventative steps to make sure your unit is working as it should.

7. Help the Environment

If you’re worried about your green footprint, make sure your HVAC unit is working properly. Otherwise, it could consume more fuel than necessary, which can hurt the environment.

You can speak to your HVAC technician about a programmable thermostat or switching to a natural gas system. Both steps can help minimize your impact on the environment.

8. Peace of Mind

Investing in regular preventative maintenance for your HVAC unit will also give you peace of mind. If something goes wrong, you’ll know you’ve already taken steps to make sure your unit is working at its best. When sometimes does happen, it will end up minor compared to the larger problems you avoid through preventative maintenance.

9. Warranty Requirements

Most HVAC manufacturers require evidence you’ve scheduled your annual maintenance check before you can make a claim. By keeping up with your HVAC checkups, you have an insurance policy in place.

Clear the Air: 9 Reasons You Need HVAC Preventative Maintenance

Now that we’ve cleared the air, when was the last time you scheduled your HVAC preventative maintenance? By scheduling an annual checkup, you can prevent disasters before they strike.

That means celebrating the holidays without a hitch, too!
