Top 10 Benefits of HVAC Maintenance
In the same way that all major appliances have upkeep requirements, the HVAC maintenance of your unit is critical to ensuring the health of your heating and cooling systems. If you haven’t had any maintenance completed on your units, your system could break down prematurely. Don’t neglect your HVAC unit when spring cleaning rolls around – protect your investment by having a professional clean, inspect, and repair your unit once a year.
Healthier HVAC System
When you make an appointment for HVAC service with Minnick’s in Laurel, Maryland, our technicians don’t simply give your unit a quick once-over. We meticulously clean the components of your system, make repairs to parts, and check for leaks or other forms of wear and tear that could limit your system’s performance.
Lower Utility Bills
The more efficiently your system is working, the lower your utility bills will be because your system isn’t fighting through accumulated debris inside the unit or overcompensating for other issues you may not even be aware of. The less your HVAC system is running, the smaller your bill will be!
Reduces Humidity in Your Home
Mold and mildew aren’t just a smelly nuisance but can be a health hazard. When your HVAC system is working correctly, it pulls water out of the air being drawn through the system. This reduces humidity levels in the home, reducing the risk of mold and mildew growth and providing a more comfortable atmosphere inside the house.
Reduced Risk of Breakdowns
It’s easy to forget about your heating and cooling system when it’s operating correctly, but when it fails, winter isn’t cozy, and summer isn’t so fun anymore. Not only that, emergency repairs or fixes can be costly.
HVAC service providers such as those at Minnick’s are trained to do more than simply clean your machine. We are trained to spot and repair weak areas that could lead to a need for more severe repairs in the future. Prevent disruption to your life by proactively scheduling a maintenance appointment for your unit with Minnick’s.
Extend The Lifespan of Your System
Anything you spend your hard-earned money on is worth taking care of, but the purchases that are essential to the quality of your life, not to mention costly, are the most important to upkeep. When cared for properly, your heating and cooling system have the potential to last for over 15 years! Protect your investment by having a professional clean, inspect, and repair your unit annually.
Better Air Quality
When the ventilation of your HVAC system isn’t working properly, you and your family inhale contaminants that are detrimental to the respiratory system. Symptoms could be relatively mild such as eye, nose, or throat irritation, but long-term exposure to indoor pollutants can bring on symptoms like headaches and dizziness that can severely impact your quality of life.
As you’ve likely noticed, your HVAC system shuts off when your set temperature is reached. While your heating and cooling system is one unit, they have different elements and care requirements. Testing the operation of your heat pump can prevent cold spots within your home when winter sets in.
During a maintenance appointment, your service provider will check refrigerant levels and test the airflow to ensure your home stays cool even on the hottest of days.
More Energy Efficient
Energy efficiency is good for the environment and your wallet. It consumes the most energy of anything in your home, so keeping it in tip-top shape will result in less energy consumption. If you want to be more energy-efficient, look at your HVAC system.
Makes Your Family More Comfortable
Having your HVAC serviced by a professional isn’t just crucial to the physical comfort of your family but is essential to preventing fires or leaks that emit harmful chemicals into your home.
When you have your unit inspected, you’re protecting more than just your investment. Keep your family comfortable with the peace of mind that your unit doesn’t pose a risk to their safety.
Between work, kids, and all the other demands of everyday life, scheduling an appointment for the preventative care of your HVAC unit may not be at the top of your list of priorities – but it should be! Ensuring your HVAC system is operating at peak performance will not only save you money in the long run, but it will help avoid unnecessary interruptions to your routine.
