3 Reasons HVAC Maintenance is Important
3 Reasons Why the Department of Energy Recommends HVAC Maintenance
Choosing the right HVAC system to cool and heat your home is extremely important for maximum efficiency, it is equally important to properly maintain your HVAC system.
According to the Department of Energy:
- Your HVAC system requires regular maintenance to be efficient and run smoothly.
- Neglected maintenance will cause your HVAC system to consume more energy and reduce its lifespan.
Here are 3 reasons why the Department of Energy recommends regularly scheduled HVAC maintenance:
- Optimal Performance with Fewer Breakdowns
When your HVAC system receives proper maintenance, there is less wear on the components. Keeping your equipment tightened & properly lubricated will reduce friction and wear and tear on your HVAC system’s parts. During our maintenance appointments, our experienced team of HVAC technicians can identify any potential issues that can cause system breakdowns. Fixing minor issues early can reduce the chance of major breakdowns at a later date.
- Increased Energy Efficiency
If there are parts that are loose or have dust and debris build-up, or parts that need lubrication, the entire system’s efficiency is compromised. Your HVAC system is required to work harder and longer, consuming more energy to achieve the same level of comfort within your home. This will lead to larger utility bills.
Your air conditioner’s evaporator coil and condenser coil are especially prone to collecting dust that hampers the cooling process. Similarly, your furnace’s burner and heat exchanger can also collect dust that inhibits the heating process. It’s important to get these parts cleaned annually to keep your energy costs low.
- Extends the Life of Your HVAC System
HVAC systems are expensive. Replacing and repairing these systems is expensive as well. Preventative maintenance will extend the lifespan of your HVAC system by reducing the wear of system components.
