Why HVAC Maintenance is Important Year Round

At Allied Air Conditioning & Heating Corp., we understand the importance of year round maintenance because we see the benefits every day when we’re out on the job. We want to share just some of the ways that year-round maintenance will benefit you.

Be ahead of the game.

Let’s face it, HVAC issues never come at convenient times. Stay ahead of potential issues rather than playing catch up. If you’re only reacting to problems when they arise, you are at the mercy of your HVAC system, your technician’s availability, parts on-hand, the weather, etc. Plus, not taking the steps to put preventative measures in place could lead to more frequent repairs and expenses down the road.

Ensure efficiency.

Regular maintenance also helps ensure that your system is working at its peak efficiency all year round. Even if you’re working with state-of-the-art equipment, dust and other harmful pollutants will build up over time and force your system to work harder than normal to regulate the temperature and humidity in your home. It’s best to schedule maintenance cleanings during off-season times to get ahead of the crowd and the seasons. Remember, your equipment does not know seasons. Like a car, bicycle, or airplane, your HVAC equipment should be maintained after a certain number of hours of operation. Doing so will extend the life of your equipment and ensure you experience the best quality air conditioning and heat that your system can offer.

Save money.

Like any home project, HVAC repairs and replacement equipment can be expensive. You can save a significant amount of money by having regular tune ups. Regular maintenance means you can address minor issues before they turn into big issues. This will not only save you money by warding off costly repairs, but it will also save you money on your monthly energy bills. Additionally, many manufacturer warranties offered on new equipment are contingent on annual maintenance being performed. If you aren’t maintaining your new system annually, you could forfeit your warranties. Allied offers annual maintenance contracts that give you scheduled maintenance, discounts on repairs, priority service, and waived diagnostic charges.

Breathe better.

Regular maintenance means improving your air quality. According to the Indoor Air Quality Association (IAQA), regular HVAC maintenance helps ensure that air pumping through the vents in your home is as clean and well-filtered as possible. Mold and bacteria thrive in dirty, neglected environments. The negative effects of poor air quality can range from eye, nose, and throat irritation to long-term respiratory issues. Protect yourself and your family with a routine cleaning and tune up.

Reduce your carbon footprint.

Proper HVAC maintenance contributes to the well-being of the environment. Without regular maintenance your system has to work harder to keep the air clean and control the temperature, which means it’s using more energy. This costs you more money and has negative effects on the environment, such as harming the ozone layer and pollution caused by burning fossil fuels.
