Keeping your air conditioner in tip-top shape is beneficial in every season, especially in the summer. You do not want your air conditioner to break in the peak of the summer heat, so it is important to have regular HVAC maintenance. Here are five reasons why regular HVAC maintenance is important:

Fewer Repairs

Annual maintenance on your HVAC system helps reduce potential repairs in the future. A professional technician can spot any problems before they spiral into larger problems that could be a lot worse for your HVAC system. Getting your HVAC system inspected allows the technician to replace any worn-out parts because they break and cause problems later. Technicians can inspect the air filter and wiring, and lubricate all parts that are necessary. Professionals know exactly what to look for to make sure your HVAC system is ready to operate in the summer heat. Having an emergency repair in the summer is never fun if your air conditioner is not able to produce cool air.

Units Last Longer

Regular HVAC maintenance helps keep your unit lasting longer. A good HVAC system should last up to 10 years, but if you keep up with annual maintenance, it can last up to 15 years. By replacing worn-out parts and keeping your air conditioning fans clean, you will extend your unit's lifespan. If you do not keep your fans clean, this means the HVAC must work harder which stresses out the motor. Making sure your belts are lubricated and do not cause friction or corrosion will ensure your belt lasts longer.

Safety

No one wants their air conditioner to break in the middle of the summer when the temperature has hit triple digits. Regular maintenance will help prevent any potential dangers caused by a broken air conditioner unit in the summer. Your technician can also check for carbon monoxide leaks which can be fatal to anyone. If it is not properly vented to the outside of the building then it can invade the living spaces and be dangerous. Around 50,000 people go to the emergency room every year for carbon monoxide poisoning, so it is important to take precautions while you can. Electrical fires are another danger that regular HVAC maintenance can detect.

Lower Utility Bills

A well-functioning HVAC system means lower utility bills. If everything in your HVAC system is working properly, then your HVAC system will not have to work harder to cool down the rooms in your building. A technician can calibrate your thermostat controls to make sure your air conditioner is working properly. Thermostat temperatures can gradually drift, so it is important to have regular tuneups because a two-degree difference can cause a change in your utility bills.

Improved Indoor Air Quality

A clogged air filter in your HVAC will not be able to trap all the harmful particles in the air. The particles will just continue to circulate throughout your building and trigger symptoms for those with sinus problems, allergies, and asthma. Pet dander, dust, pollen, or bacteria will circulate throughout your building reducing your air quality. Having regular HVAC maintenance to change the dirty air filters will significantly improve the air quality in your building and promote a healthy atmosphere.
