Home and business owners can reduce the chances of untimely air conditioning failures with these tips.
After months of sitting idle, HVAC systems can strain to keep up with higher temperatures as the summer season arrives. Some proactive maintenance can go a long way toward keeping your system running efficiently.
In addition to preventing costly breakdowns, HVAC tune-ups can help homeowners save money by reducing energy consumption. A system tune-up will keep your HVAC system working efficiently. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, an HVAC unit running close to peak efficiency can save you up to 30% on your energy bill.
The longer a minor issue goes undetected, the greater the chance of a breakdown. Small issues caused by normal wear and tear can usually be corrected if discovered early. If homeowners are not having their unit serviced regularly, minor problems will turn into costly repairs. Having your unit serviced will not only limit breakdowns but will also extend the life of your system.
Most HVAC manufacturers who provide warranties require evidence of annual maintenance to pay a claim. If you are not having your unit serviced annually and the system breaks down, your claim may be rejected.
An HVAC unit performing at high quality can help improve your home or office’s IAQ. One of the functions of an HVAC system is filtering pollutants in the air. If you haven’t been regularly servicing your unit, it may not be filtering all the allergens in your home. To increase comfort, ensure your unit is working properly.
