Any machine with moving parts needs preventive maintenance, and your HVAC system is no different. Regular, preventative HVAC maintenance should be a priority for any home or business looking to extend the life of their unit. While breakdowns cannot be entirely prevented, HVAC maintenance is an excellent safeguard that can give you peace of mind and help your wallet.
Avoid Costly Damages
Have you ever put off a small issue a little too long and watched it grow into a much bigger issue? With regular HVAC maintenance, you can catch small issues before they snowball into larger, more expensive ones. Not only will this give you peace of mind but also save you money in the long run.
Better Air Quality
When you think of pollutants, your mind probably goes straight to the outdoors, but according to the Environmental Protection Agency, the level of indoor pollutants is likely to be 2-5 times higher than those outdoors. The pollutants could be anything from pet dander and mold to dust and dust mites, which can all be contributing factors to respiratory issues and/or allergy flare ups.
Lifespan of HVAC System
The average life expectancy of a HVAC system is between 10-15 years, depending on several factors. The best way to extend this is by investing in regular, preventative maintenance for your system. Think of your HVAC system as a car… the better you take care of it, the longer it will last. Keeping parts lubricated and clean will help the system to function properly and stay in peak condition longer.
All in all, there are many benefits to preventative HVAC maintenance (even more than we listed here). Your HVAC system is a largest investment and periodic inspections keep your investment running at peak performance and efficiency. For just a small investment of time and money, you can avoid costly damages, give your home/business better air quality, and maximize the lifespan of your unit
