We may be right in the middle of winter, but springtime is just around the corner. Getting your HVAC system ready for spring will help ensure optimal function and energy-efficiency throughout 2020. Reducing unnecessary repair costs, limiting your utility bill, and improving indoor air quality are three major reasons to have your system inspected and serviced.
Spring HVAC Maintenance Tips and Benefits
Home HVAC maintenance is something that most homeowners only consider when their system begins to fail. Maybe you turn on the heat and lukewarm air begins to come out of your vents, or the cool air just refuses to flow in the middle of the summer. Especially when you consider those vulnerable people like the elderly who depend on functioning HVAC systems, a failing system is nothing short of a disaster.
Winter is the exact wrong time to forget about your HVAC system. Soon enough, we’ll be having some pleasant spring days, but summer isn’t far behind. Getting your system inspected and maintained is key to achieving true peace of mind.
Reduced Future Repair Costs
The last thing most homeowners want to think about is repairs and maintenance for their air conditioner, furnace, or any other piece of their HVAC system. Particularly for new systems, residential HVAC maintenance and repair might be fairly minor for the first several years.
It’s not hard to just trust that your system is working and put concerns on the backburner. However, one day your system is going to run into issues. Wouldn’t it be better to extend your system’s healthy days by a few more years?
Having your system inspected in the late winter or early spring as a part of a regular preventative maintenance schedule is one easy way to extend the life of your system and mitigate future repairs. The process isn’t even a real burden, especially when compared to total failure. A technician will come out and take a look at your equipment, run some tests, do some maintenance, make minor repairs if necessary, and verify that your system will be good to go for the year.
Lower Utility Bills
This one is simple: a well-prepped and maintained air conditioning system is a more energy-efficient system. A more energy-efficient system will result in lower electric bills. A springtime inspection of your unit is all you need to be confident that every dollar you spend on energy is optimized.
It’s worth noting here that by improving the efficiency of your system and using less energy, your environmental footprint will be reduced. Sure, a single inefficient unit isn’t causing tremendous harm to the environment, but all of that saved energy adds up.
Improved Indoor Air Quality
Temperature isn’t the only factor you pay attention to when you enter a new building. If the air is too dry or too humid or if allergens and other toxins aren’t being properly filtered, your living space isn’t going to be as comfortable or as healthy as you’d like it to be. A well-functioning AC could mean the difference between suffering through the summer or getting much-needed relief when you walk through the front door.
Spring HVAC maintenance is a simple, unobtrusive step that can make a massive difference for the rest of the year.
Residential HVAC Maintenance
Yearly inspections in the springtime can be included as a part of a regular preventative maintenance schedule. If inspections are scheduled in this way, there isn’t even a major need for you to think about the problem. You can ignore the possibility of issues in the future and give yourself anxiety over the prospect, or you can essentially automate the process.
A preventative maintenance plan from John’s Service and Sales will give you the peace of mind that your system is being well taken care of. Any system with moving parts should receive regular maintenance, especially if that system impacts your comfort as much as the AC. From changing your air filters to clearing space around your outdoor units, it is a good idea to schedule an inspection. Reach out to us today and we’ll get a time on the calendar!
