Why You Shouldn’t Skip HVAC Maintenance
The beauty of living in Florida is that, unlike most of the country, the weather stays nice all year long. Which means that your air conditioner sees a lot more activity. Could you imagine not having your air conditioner even during the winter months? Not a pleasant thought—but without proper maintenance, it might be a reality. Here are three reasons you shouldn’t skip HVAC maintenance.
Extend the Life of Your HVAC System
As with anything else, when you take proper care of your HVAC system, you help prolong its lifespan. When you neglect little problems, they eventually become bigger problems—which can result in costly repairs.
Having a reliable HVAC partner such as the Air Hawk team ensures that your system is working and running as it should. With one of our maintenance plans, you can have peace of mind that your HVAC system is up to the task of keeping your home comfortable all year.
Minimize the Risk of Emergency Repair
There’s nothing quite like having an air conditioner emergency on a hot night. Probably something you’d much rather avoid. HVAC maintenance can help. As discussed above, ignoring small problems with your HVAC system can eventually result in much bigger problems. The result is usually emergency repair. That’s why it is important to stick to a maintenance schedule to ensure you recognize any issues that arise with your HVAC system.
When our technicians come out to do your annual maintenance, we can identify potential issues before they have a chance to become major points of concern. We can also make recommendations to help you avoid issues in the future. The truth is, an annual maintenance plan is less expensive than a costly emergency repair.
Increase Energy Efficiency (Cost Savings)
Running your AC year round can be a bit of a hurter on the wallet. But there are ways to help reduce those expenses—one of which is regular HVAC maintenance. Changing your air filters regularly helps keep your system from overworking. In fact, it can improve your system’s efficiency by 5%–15%. We recommend changing your filters every 30–60 days—if you’re spending more time at home, opt for every 30 days.
Having your duct work cleaned ensures that there is no blockage in the air flow which also prevents your system from overexerting itself. With our maintenance plans, we also clean your condenser coils, check for and remove debris, check your blow motors, and more. Combining all of these efforts together not only keeps your home cool and comfortable, it also keeps your utility bills from breaking the bank.
