Why Should I Have Maintenance on my HVAC System?
Many people who make an investment in an HVAC system or a new home, fail to properly maintain the HVAC system, reducing system capacity, increasing energy usage and unnecessary repairs. An HVAC system is similar to a car. It needs proper attention and maintenance to stay efficient and keep the home comfortable year round. Research shows that a dirty or unmaintained HVAC system can cost an additional 20% in operating cost.
You would not run your car for a year without changing the oil and other necessary maintenance items, would you? Think about how many hours and how many miles you drive your car daily. How many hours do you think your air conditioning system runs in a day, a month, each year? Would you run your car that long without maintenance?

Saving money is why you should maintain your HVAC system. A unit that runs efficiently means less money spent on electricity, repair bills and more comfort for you in your home. Maintenance can also help keep your system from major repairs, and extend the life of the equipment.
Proper maintenance not only keeps your system efficient, reduces repair bills and provides a more comfortable home, it will also help prevent poor air quality. Clean filters and coils mean cleaner, healthier air for the whole family. A system that is not maintained can be a breeding ground for mold, mildew, and bacteria which can cause respiratory problems. Ask our technicians about other air quality products to enhance the removal of dirt, dust, bacteria and humidity control.
The better a person maintains their HVAC system, the longer the system will last. A well-maintained unit can last well over ten years. Considering the cost of new HVAC systems, doesn’t it make sense to want to keep your running as long as you can?
A well-maintained HVAC system has been proven to be less likely to need emergency service. In the event you do, after-hours service is available.
