In many aspects, your home’s central heating and air system is comparable to a car. Much like a car, your HVAC system needs regular maintenance to operate at peak performance and efficiency. If you don’t maintain your system, not only will its performance begin to suffer fairly quickly, but you’ll actually experience a major breakdown far quicker and your system will finally wear out for good much faster.
Therefore, it’s important to have your system maintained regularly in order to make sure it’s both running at its absolute best and free from any defects or issues that may be about to cause a major breakdown. Even if you’ve just had a brand-new HVAC system installed, maintenance services are still necessary, as manufacturers require you to have your system serviced at least once a year to keep all parts warranties valid.
Also not unlike your car, it is probably safe to say that many of you have never disassembled or looked in great depth at our home’s HVAC system. If you have, there is a strong chance you didn’t know too much about what you were looking at, aside from maybe a few basic parts. While this isn’t abnormal, the point is if you don’t have a professional look at it every now and again, you may be oblivious to problems that exist.
This is where regular preventative maintenance can be extremely valuable. Having a highly-trained and certified technician maintain your system will allow them to inspect and some of its most critical components, ensuring that they are in good working order and free from any potential signs of trouble. This is particularly important for your coils, blower motor, fans, belts, and more.
A maintenance service will not only check these parts, but include cleaning, tightening, and lubrication of moving parts to make sure they’re in peak working condition and your system is ready for the long haul of the season ahead. This means that even though you’ll be putting many hours of use into your HVAC system, you can have the confidence it will be up to the task and sustain as little wear and tear as possible. In the long term, a high-quality maintenance service can extend the life of your system for several years, saving you thousands of dollars on a replacement system.
Regular maintenance, to a certain extent, can also help protect the environment. Air conditioning refrigerants are chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), which contribute to ozone depletion. Not only can early detection of a leak stop these CFCs from escaping into the atmosphere, where they can do serious harm to the planet, but you won’t have to replace the expensive Freon that escaped. The government started phasing out R-22 Freon back in 2010 and would like to see it completely out of use by 2020. As the phase-out process continues, simple supply and demand states it will only get more and more expensive to charge your unit as this deadline draws near. Most importantly, leaking refrigerant is also one of the leading causes of system failure; leaks often leading to Freon lines freezing up and icing over, potentially causing other damage including total system failure.
