When the sun dips below the horizon in Arizona, it can get down-right cold at night in the desert.
It’s at this time that your home’s heater will usually kick on automatically to keep your home nice and warm, but what would happen if your heater shut down unexpectedly?
In this article, we present Three Benefits to an HVAC Maintenance Program!
Benefit #1 – A Routine HVAC Maintenance Program will Help Reduce Monthly Energy Bills
Did you know that one of the easiest ways to reduce your monthly utility bill is to simply have a few small things inspected in your home’s HVAC system? Believe it or not, there are two things any home owner can do too; all designed to keep your home clean, improve the indoor air quality and also save money on electricity each month.
- First – Replace your filters every month. The leading cause of energy usage inside a home is the Heating or AC unit when used in Summer time. And when the system is blocked by dirty air filters, it causes the HVAC unit to work harder to achieve the desired temperature. In fact, dirty air filters can cause a HVAC system to work up to 50% harder than it should. This is why it’s advisable to replace your air filters as often as possible.
- Second – Have the HVAC System Inspected Twice Per Year. There are other factors involved in reducing your monthly energy bill including having the HVAC system inspected prior to optimal use. A great tip is to schedule a HVAC maintenance program early in spring for AC system and early Fall for heating system. This will ensure every belt is tight, all lubricants are filled and your system is free of obstructions.
Benefit #2 – Routine HVAC Maintenance Will Improve Indoor Air Quality
Do you live with constant allergies? Or does somebody in your house struggle to live with COPD? If so, you’re among the 48% of all Arizona residents who live with some sort of breathing condition caused by poor air quality. And believe it or not, the leading cause of allergy flair ups and COPD issues is indoor air quality. A great way to improve this is to follow the above two simple steps:
- Replace air filters every month
- Have your system inspected bi-annually
It has been shown that simply replacing filters each month can improve the indoor air quality by up to 50% in many cases. This leads to breathing much cleaner air, free of harmful pollutants and dust that often leads to many chronic breathing conditions.
Benefit #3 – A HVAC Maintenance Program will Increases Longevity of HVAC System
Finally, when you take care of any mechanical device, the net result is that the system will last longer. This is why having your HVAC system inspected every six months is a great way to save money on costly repairs that are often caused by lack of a solid HVAC maintenance program. It’s well known that paying a little money and taking a little time today can pay huge dividends in the future.
