An air conditioner and the heating system is one of the hardest working of all appliances in a home. The heating system works through the late fall and winter season to bring warmth to your home. During the summer the air conditioner will run three, ten minutes cycles per hour and the same is true for your heating system. That is a lot of cycles that both the air conditioner and the heater will do in one day. With each cycle, your cooling or heating system wears down just a little bit at a time. If it is never maintained, your heating and cooling system will develop more problems and more often. Additionally, your air conditioner and heating system will need replacements much sooner than is necessary. Absolute P&M Services would like to share the results of poor HVAC maintenance.
Poor Indoor Air Quality
When you do not maintain your air conditioner or heating system, one of the common results is poor indoor air quality. Part of maintaining an HVAC system is changing out the air filters, the furnace filter, and keeping the air ducts clean. Failure to have these areas of the HVAC properly maintained will result in air pollutants, allergens, and other contaminates. As a homeowner, it is important to change out your air filters and have your air ducts cleaned about every 3 to 5 years. With maintaining these areas of the HVAC system, you will have cleaner air in your home.
High Utility Bills
An air conditioner and heater, whether it is a boiler or furnace, will all require maintenance and tune-ups. A tune-up is when an HVAC technician comes to your home and inspects the entire HVAC system, clean the coils, and remove dust and debris as well as lubricate moving parts. A tune-up can greatly improve your air conditioner’s performance. When the HVAC system is never tuned-up it just doesn’t run with the same level of performance, which means it will need more and longer cooling cycles. As a result, you will have a higher power bill in the summer and for those with a gas fueled heating system, a higher gas bill in the winter season.
AC Repair & Premature Replacement
When you do not maintain or have your HVAC tuned-up, you can expect to have more repairs and an earlier air conditioner replacement. When you never properly maintain your HVAC system the components wear down. Even one faulty component can add stress to the entire HVAC system. As more and more stress occurs within the air conditioner or heating system, it will eventually break down and a total unit replacement will be needed. Repairing and replacing an air conditioner or heating unit can be expensive. Simply by maintaining your HVAC properly, you will reduce the need for major repairs and prolong the life of your air conditioning and heating system.
