Football, pumpkin spice lattes, and the holidays are on the horizon. However, we can’t say goodbye to the Alabama heat just yet. In fact, temperatures are estimated to stay in the upper 80s and lower 90s well into September. If your HVAC unit has been working hard all summer (we’d be willing to bet it has) without regular maintenance, you may be at risk for expensive repairs, poor indoor air quality, and more.
But don’t worry; you can easily schedule HVAC maintenance with Guin Service before the summer is over. We’re discussing all the benefits of regular maintenance, including avoiding emergency repairs, so you can find peace of mind while keeping your HVAC unit in tip-top shape for the remainder of the year.
Top 5 Benefits of Regular HVAC Maintenance
At Guin Service, we understand you’re busy. We know your to-do list is neverending, and we’re here to help you prioritize essential home care like HVAC maintenance. Keep on reading to learn all the pros of regular HVAC maintenance and how it can help you have a happier, healthier home.
1. Avoid Expensive Repairs
While we can’t guarantee you’ll never run into any HVAC snafus, scheduling regular maintenance often catches any potential issues before they become real problems. A trained professional, like the licensed, insured, and certified pros at Guin Service, can notice any leaks, damaged parts, or failures, saving you money in the long run.
2. Promote Longevity
Similar to your car, regular service can extend the life of your HVAC system. If certain parts deteriorate without repair, like the belts, it can cause the system to work harder than usual, creating a vicious cycle of wear and tear. Most units last around ten years, but with proper maintenance, you can extend the life of your HVAC upwards of 15 years. From heat pumps and spit systems to furnaces and air conditioners, Guin Service is helping you get the biggest bang for your buck.
3. Lower Utility Bills
Regular HVAC maintenance allows you to work smarter, not harder, for a healthy, energy-efficient home. As we mentioned, if your system isn’t tip-top, it must work harder to circulate clean, cool air. Not only does regular maintenance enhance your system’s lifespan, but it also can ensure your unit is running at peak efficiency, effectively lowering your energy bills. Plus, an experienced technician can evaluate and calibrate your thermostat to ensure a seamless and cost-effective heating and cooling cycle.
4. Boost Indoor Air Quality
If you’re not careful, your AC unit can quickly become a hotspot for mold during the summer months. As your unit cools your home, it generates moisture, which isn’t a problem—unless dirt and debris accumulate. While most homeowners can spot a dirty air filter, inspecting your HVAC unit for mold can be more challenging if you’re not a trained expert. With regular maintenance, you can find peace of mind knowing your and your family’s air is crisp, cool, and free of mold.
