With an efficient HVAC system, you can save on energy costs and improve your indoor air quality. Performing regular maintenance can help you catch small problems before they turn into expensive repairs; however, many homeowners don’t get in touch with their HVAC contractors unless something goes wrong with their unit.
Here are the main reasons air conditioner maintenance is important.
Keep Your HVAC System Efficient
Your air conditioner will start to deteriorate without proper maintenance and regular inspections and tune-ups. Even as little as 0.042 inches of dust buildup in your unit can reduce its efficiency by up to 21 percent. When your system is properly maintained, breakdowns can be avoided, especially during the warmer months when it’s working its hardest.
You may have leaky air ducts or clogged filters if the air that your AC vents is producing is cool but not flowing properly from the air registers. If you’re experiencing this problem, make sure to hire a reliable AC repair and duct cleaning company.
Maintain a More Comfortable Home
Temperature variances from one room to another can have different causes, such as sunlight exposure, insufficient insulation or leaky windows. An experienced technician can determine the best solution for this problem by carefully inspecting the components of your AC unit.
Improve Indoor Air Quality
A leaking outdoor compressor or a broken drain tube can cause mold to grow in your unit. Fortunately, this issue can be fixed during a tune-up before mold growth has a chance to occur. Also, when not removed immediately, these microorganisms can quickly spread around your home, which can be harmful to your family’s health. You’ll notice that some rooms in your home become more humid when your unit can’t properly dehumidify them.
