Winter is coming to a close, and soon the heat of the summer will be here. Before the hot summer months arrive, it’s important to make sure that your AC is tuned up and ready to go. Here are a few reasons why regular maintenance on your AC is so important.

  • Lifespan: if you’re scheduling regular maintenance checks and keeping up with the maintenance an HVAC system needs, you’ll increase the lifespan of your system. Regular cleaning, air filter replacement, and tune-ups can all be beneficial for your HVAC system, and keep it running smoother for years to come.

  • Efficiency: regular cleaning and maintenance on your HVAC system will help it run more efficiently and save you money down the road. Maintenance can catch things that you don’t notice, such as a block in an air duct or a build-up of dust, and will keep your system from working too hard. If your AC is working too hard to keep your home cool in the summer, it can drive up your energy bills and make you pay more to cool your home.

  • Air Quality: if your system hasn’t been cleaned and maintained properly, the quality of the air in your home could be affected. Clogged or old air filters will only catch all the dust and other allergens in the air for so long before it’ll need to be replaced with a new one. With all that dust and other particles in the air, the air quality in your home will drop substantially, making allergies worse.

  • Repair Cost: if you start slacking on HVAC maintenance and tune-ups, the probability of something happening to your system increases. Parts can break, ducts can become obstructed, and your HVAC unit can even shut down or break completely. Always remember to schedule regular maintenance checks so that little problems don’t become big ones down the road.
