Maintaining a new air conditioning and heating system is often the last thing on many homeowners mind. Many see a new system as perfectly fine, taking years before they will require maintenance or repair. While this may be true, this doesn’t take into account the constant weather strains and seasonal pressures your HVAC systems experience every year.
In this post, R.A. Biel Plumbing & Heating, Inc. explains why preventive HVAC maintenance is a must.
What most homeowners don’t realize is that equipment, such as air conditioning, weakens as soon as you first use it. You may risk never really knowing when the parts require repair and lubrication. An even bigger danger is leaving these risks as is.
Dirty coils, low refrigerant levels, and belt cracks can all progress into more serious concerns in just a matter of weeks. Preventive maintenance allows you to head off these problems, retain, and even improve the overall performance of your core HVAC system.
You Improve Indoor Air Quality
Preventive maintenance also allows you to improve the indoor air quality in your entire house. Dirty coils and clogged air ducts can cause the quality of your indoor air to dip significantly, and even cause more serious health concerns such as mold development.
This risk is one of the reasons why we always advise homeowners to plan their first preventive maintenance a month after their new heating system installation. A lot of things can happen during those weeks, and it’s always a good idea to have the air quality in your home evaluated.
You Save Money
Finally, doing preventive maintenance and repair is actually more affordable than a reactive repair as you’re addressing problems when these are still small and easier to fix. Compare this to a major HVAC problem, such as rusted coils or clogged air ducts, which would require more extensive and pricier repair work.
