Dealing with the summer heat in Sneads Ferry, NC, without a properly working air conditioner isn’t something you want. It’s imperative to have a functioning AC system capable of handling your cooling demands. Here are five more reasons you can’t afford to miss spring HVAC maintenance:
Improved Indoor Air Quality
As part of routine HVAC maintenance, a service technician replaces or cleans the HVAC air filter. The air filter traps pet dander, pollen and other particulates that contaminate your indoor air. Unfortunately, a clogged air filter or dirty ductwork also causes your HVAC system to work harder to provide you with the comfort you need.
Keeps Warranty Valid
It’s important to keep your warranty valid as it protects your air conditioner in the event of a breakdown or malfunction due to a manufacturing issue. The warranty protects you for about 10 years but only remains valid if a professional service technician inspects and maintains your system to provide proof of maintenance.
Longer HVAC Lifespan
Typically, an HVAC system has an average lifespan of 10 to 15 years, but the lifespan will be only half that without regular maintenance. Since it’s expensive to replace HVAC systems, it’s best to keep them going as long as you can.
Maintains Energy Efficiency
When your system has to work harder to provide the same comfort level, this decreases its energy efficiency. Not only does this cause more wear and tear on your system, but it also shortens the lifespan of your HVAC unit.
Reduced Utility Bills
Another benefit that increased energy efficiency provides is that it lowers utility bills. In addition, regular maintenance increases energy efficiency, which means your system uses less power to keep you comfortable.
