Why Regular HVAC Maintenance Is A Must

Why Regular HVAC Maintenance Is A Must

What if we told you we could help you save money on your utility bills? What if we told you we could help save you from making a large equipment purchase? Like the sound of that? Well, keep reading for tips on how to keep your HVAC equipment running smoothly and efficiently!

FILTERS

According to the Department of Energy, replacing dirty filters can lower energy costs by as much as 5-15%! 5-15%!! Something as simple as changing the filters every few weeks can keep more money in your pocket. Dirty filters prevent airflow and force your unit to work harder.

When your unit works harder, your energy costs rise. This could also lead to your equipment overextending itself and, thus, shorten its lifespan. If you check your filter and it has turned gray or if your home seems dustier than normal, it is time for a change. If you are using your heat or air conditioning on a near constant basis or if you have pets that shed, check your filters monthly to ensure they are not dirty or clogged.

If you have your filter handy our technicians will gladly replace it for you during your scheduled maintenance check. Spending a few minutes and a few dollars can save you time and money down the road!

TRIMMING

Ever notice any yard shrubs or plants surrounding your outdoor condenser? Perhaps you have some vines creeping into the unit? If you answered “yes” to either of these questions, it is time to put on some gloves and get to trimming! No debris or foliage should come within 2’ of your unit, which requires air to breathe and function properly. When you clean your yard, you are also giving your condenser a breath of fresh air!

Our technicians go the extra mile to help our clients with their trimming if necessary during scheduled maintenance checks.

REGULAR MAINTENANCE 

Would you ever consider not changing the oil in your vehicle? Of course, not. That is just silly.

Our vehicles are investments and must be maintained. We all know that. Well, think of your HVAC equipment in the same manner. If you do not maintain it, the life can be shortened and then money must be spent to make repairs or to replace a unit.
