Routine HVAC Maintenance: Getting Ahead of the Heat
In Florida, summer gets hot… really hot. With heat waves hitting early and often this year, it’s important to brace for extremely harsh temperatures. As a result, you want your air conditioning unit to be working at its best to keep you and your loved ones cool and comfortable. To ensure that your AC unit is functioning properly during this time, schedule a maintenance appointment with a local HVAC professional.
Benefits to Regular AC Maintenance
A common mistake people make about air conditioning maintenance is that it’s not considered a necessity. If you don’t value air quality, saving money or durability when it comes to your AC unit, then you are on the right track. Your home is an investment, so shouldn’t you take care of it? The HVAC system is vital to the health of your home as a whole, especially in Florida. A well-tuned air conditioning system proves to come with many benefits:
You worked hard for your money, and it should work hard for you. Have a technician maintain your air conditioning unit to save you time, energy and money.
- Wear and Tear: Over time, erosion and corrosion is only natural with any home appliance. These cause strain on different appliance components, which causes the AC unit to work harder than normal decreasing performance efficiency, and as a result, increasing your energy bill.
- Fewer Repairs: Wouldn’t you rather pay $30 for an oil change than $3,000 to repair the engine? Just like a car checkup, small repairs add up to prevent any major damages you may have in the long term. If these small repairs are not made to maintain peak performance, then once small problems may alter and damage other parts of the system. This only adds more onto that bill you were avoiding in the first place.
You may not notice it, but a lack of AC maintenance can cause the air in your home to be filthy and uncomfortable. You and your family deserve to live happy and healthy in your own home.
- Better Air Quality: Trained and experienced professionals know the best methods to remove dust, dirt, and other harmful particles from the ventilation system. If the appropriate equipment or techniques are not used, then this exposes your family to the harmful debris that can enter throughout the home.
- Comfortable Living: Routine maintenance is the best way to ensure your air conditioner is running efficient and smooth. It provides assurance that cool air is being distributed equally all throughout your home.
The average lifespan of an air conditioning unit is 15-20 years, but this only happens when the AC unit receives proper professional care. Due to lack of attention, many AC units work hard in the Summer but end up breaking down when their owners need it most. Check for signs to see if your AC unit needs a maintenance checkup. For your own sake, have a system that lives a long and happy life!
Importance of Good Air Conditioning
Most families are unaware of the various impacts an air conditioning unit has on a home. Take a moment to think about the air in your home and what it makes contact with throughout the day. Your possessions and everything that you own are vulnerable, especially when it comes to the Florida heat and humidity. An AC unit that’s left unchecked causes wood to warp, leather to rot, and fabric to produce mold.
Since people spend the majority of their time indoors, your family’s health is also at risk. According to the EPA, air conditioning units can spread indoor pollutants such as mold, pollen, bacteria, mildew and more. Unmaintained AC units can cause respiratory aggravation, indoor air contamination and the spread of disease. Schedule a checkup with your local HVAC professional, your home should be a safe space for you and your family.
