Servicing your unit every year, or even every couple of months, can seem costly and excessive. It is very important, however, as it keeps your unit in good condition and saves you money in the long run. Ignoring a small noise now, can result in a new unit next year.
What are some problems that can occur if you don’t have your HVAC system serviced yearly?
Neglecting HVAC maintenance can lead to an inefficient system that raises energy bills, breaks down frequently, and will most likely need to be replaced before its anticipated lifespan has passed. The air conditioner should be checked regularly to ensure that wear and tear do not damage and decrease its performance. Servicing your air conditioner regularly also allows you to eliminate any possible issues before they appear and become costly repairs. Several, frequent circumstances might cause leaks in an HVAC unit such as the drain hole becoming clogged or blocked, the condenser pump malfunctioning, the seals on your unit aren’t tight, or when your hose is clogged or blocked. All these problems can happen if your HVAC equipment isn’t properly maintained. A well-maintained HVAC system should operate quietly and efficiently. When the air conditioner turns on, you should hear nothing but a faint hum. Otherwise, your HVAC system should run quietly in the background while you go about your day. You can notice loud or distracting noises coming from your HVAC unit if you don’t maintain it properly. Maintaining your air conditioner might help you avoid this problem and keep it working as it should. Pollen, allergies, dust, and other airborne particles that can harm your health are filtered out by an HVAC air filter. A decent air filter will provide you with high-quality indoor air that will not only minimize but also prevent the duration of illnesses. Airborne particles aren’t filtered when your air filter is unclean, instead, they enter your home through your ductwork and are breathed in by you and your family. An air filter is changed by a professional during maintenance, making it important to be on time with your maintenance schedule.
