As winter winds down here in Tomball, TX, it’s time to contact your HVAC contractor for maintenance services. By doing so, you prevent any possible failures that may occur when you need the system most. Here we’ll discuss a few benefits of investing in spring maintenance.
1. Improve Air Quality With Spring HVAC Maintenance
Your family could suffer from air quality-related illnesses, such as asthma and allergies. That’s because your HVAC system accumulates airborne particles that lower your indoor air quality. Through routine operations, the condenser coil accumulates dirt and debris, causing bacteria to grow.
As the unconditioned air blows over the coil, it collects these pollutants and distributes them across your home. The contaminated air poses a health risk to you and your loved ones. For this reason, we recommend preventive maintenance to keep your family safe.
2. Reduce the Need for Repairs
Through maintenance, your technician can identify possible problems before they become serious issues. For example, your system may have a slow refrigerant leak. If left un-noticed, you may find yourself needing repairs when temperatures are in the 90’s and everyone in the house is uncomfortable.
As a result, you not only experience disruption of your daily activities, but you could also incur expensive replacement and repairs. However, through spring maintenance, you prevent such problems by identifying them early on.
3. Reduces the Cost of Heating and Cooling With HVAC Maintenance
High-efficient systems use less energy, helping you reduce your expenses. On the other hand, a neglected system experiences wear and tear of its components, which reduces its efficiency. It works more than it should and consumes more energy.
However, routine maintenance improves the system’s efficiency and reduces your monthly bills. In fact, according to the U.S. Department of Energy, regular maintenance may reduce your bills by 30%.
4. Extend the Service Life of Your System
Although your HVAC system can serve you for a long time, it requires regular maintenance to keep it in top shape. It can provide heating and cooling services for about 10 to 15 years, depending on how well you take care of it.
If neglected, though, it could experience frequent failures that reduce its lifespan. Bi-annual maintenance services help protect the system from breakdowns.
If you want to protect your investment, ensure you schedule maintenance, preferably in the spring and again in the fall. For more information about HVAC tune-ups, contact the team at Davis AC.
