With summer right around the corner in Glencoe, IL, it’s vital that you schedule HVAC maintenance for your cooling system. That way, you won’t have to worry about your air conditioner quitting on you and having to deal with the heat until a professional can fix it. Below are a few reasons spring HAC maintenance is worth the cost.
Improves Indoor Air Quality
HVAC air filters trap dust, pet dander, pollen and other particulates to keep them from contaminating your indoor air quality. However, clogged and dirty air filters no longer trap the contaminants and allow them to build up in your home and HVAC system. Maintenance keeps your air filters clean, which helps reduce allergens in your home.
When you have a well-maintained HVAC system, it operates far more efficiently. When your system runs efficiently, there’s less wear and tear, which also reduces the chances of a surprise breakdown.
Keeps Your Warranty Valid
If a manufacturer’s flaw causes your HVAC system to break down, you need to know you can rely upon your warranty. If you don’t have paperwork to prove that you had a professional HVAC service technician maintain your system regularly, you could void your warranty.
Longer HVAC Service Life
With regular annual maintenance, your HVAC system has an average service life of 10 to 15 years. Without regular maintenance, the wear and tear on the system components can shorten the lifespan of your system.
Reduces Energy Bills
When you have an inefficient system, you use more energy to keep your home comfortable. In turn, this raises your energy bills. The more inefficient your system becomes, the higher your energy bills.
Compared to the cost of rising energy bills due to an inefficient system and replacing your system before the end of its service life, maintenance is more than worth the cost. Contact Carefree Comfort Inc. today to schedule a maintenance appointment for your HVAC system.
