Here Are 5 Reasons Why
With fall in full swing and winter heading our way, it’s time to make sure your HVAC is all set to keep you warm and safe when the temperatures drop. A well-maintained heating and air conditioning system is far more efficient than one in need of repairs. Here are five reasons why regularly scheduled heating maintenance is important.
- Keeping Your Home Safe
In the wintertime, we use more heat and with that comes risks when you are living with a poorly maintained HVAC system. Leaks can lead to dangerous chemicals inside your home. Issues with electrical wiring or a burning out motor can lead to burning smells inside your home. Scheduled maintenance on your HVAC involves checking for all of these potential issues and handling them before they become a problem.
- Ensuring Proper Airflow
It is important to regularly check and have your air filters replaced multiple times a year. The air filter can get dirty and even become clogged, which will lead to a less efficient unit. Your air vents and registers should also be regularly monitored for any blockages. Dust can also gather on air vents, which can then enter the HVAC system and flow through your home. Schedule your heating maintenance before you switch from air conditioning to heating for the winter.
- Reprogramming Your Thermostat
During heating maintenance, your HVAC expert at E Dennis Air Conditioning & Heating will check to make sure your thermostat is working properly and accurately reading temperatures. It is also important to ensure consistent temperatures in each room of the home. You may also want to consider a programmable or smart thermostat to help better regulate the temperature and cut down on energy costs.
- Monitoring Energy-Efficiency of Your HVAC System
A spike in energy bills and obvious temperature differences in different rooms are two indicators that your HVAC unit may not be working efficiently. When your system is inefficient it can lead to malfunctions, expensive repairs, and higher monthly bills. Regularly maintaining the system can help cut down on these expenses and improve the function and longevity of your HVAC system.
- Save on Energy Costs
Regularly scheduled HVAC maintenance is like taking your car for regular oil changes: regularly investing in the health and safety extends the life of both your car, and the same goes for your home. Regularly maintaining an efficient HVAC unit costs you significantly less in the long run on replacements and repairs, and also consumes less energy. Following through on regularly scheduled maintenance can also help you maintain your HVAC system warranty.
