Why Regular Maintenance Is Essential for Your HVAC System
Getting maintenance for your Bonita Springs, Florida, home’s HVAC system will keep it working well and extend its life. It can also keep your system’s warranty valid. By checking your heater yearly, you can catch problems before they become costly. An expert can also tell you when it’s time to replace your system with a newer model. Regular maintenance will help you save energy, improve your indoor air quality, and increase comfort for you and your family.
Many HVAC issues such as clogged air filters, malfunctioning thermostats, dirty ductwork, and refrigerant leaks, can raise your power bills. You should change your system’s air filter at least every three months to keep pollutants like dirt, pollen, dust, biological growth, and pet dander from accumulating. These substances can reduce airflow through your ducts, forcing your HVAC system to work harder. You should remove debris such as twigs, grass clippings, or leaves to make sure that your outdoor unit has enough space around it.
Better Indoor Air Quality
The same problems that waste energy often impact your home’s indoor air quality. Contaminants that can clog your air filter can also spread around your house, causing allergy or asthma symptoms, headaches, sore throats, rashes, eye irritation, fatigue, or other issues. Maintaining your HVAC system can make your family members feel healthier, get rid of bad smells, and keep pests like cockroaches from leaving their droppings in your ductwork.
Leaks in your ductwork, poor airflow, and many other malfunctions can make you and your family uncomfortable. Poor heating or cooling, and strange noises such as banging whistling or rattling are all bad signs from your HVAC. Maintenance can prevent these problems, help you sleep better, and make your home more welcoming for guests.
