To keep your HVAC unit functional for as long as possible, it is important to perform regular maintenance checks on it. Here are some other benefits you stand to enjoy if you do so:
A well-maintained HVAC unit can last for as long as 10 to 15 years. Given how expensive it is to procure and install a unit, it makes more sense to spend a little on maintenance every 6 months.
Studies show that units that are left without constant maintenance expend 20% more energy than well-maintained ones. The more you take care of your HVAC, the less energy it needs to consume to perform optimally; this reduces your utility bills and how much maintenance your HVAC needs in the future.
Better Air Quality
Regular maintenance means that the HVAC’s air filters and coils are clean. Clean filters and coils mean a better quality of air. This, in turn, means less respiratory problems (caused by dirt, mold, and bacteria that collects in air filters) for you and your family.
Fewer Impromptu Repairs
If you run maintenance checks on your HVAC twice per year, the technician will see potential issues and fix them before they turn into full-blown problems. Also, well-maintained units are less likely to break down during periods of intense use.
Some parts of your HVAC unit are covered under warranty and this makes it even more beneficial to perform regular checks. If during routine maintenance you find that a part is faulty and its warranty has not expired, you can get a replacement for free. All you need to do is pay a technician to help you install the replacement.
Given how complex the units often are, it is more advisable to employ the services of professional technicians for your HVAC maintenance.
