While Vinton, LA, doesn’t experience temperatures as cold as other parts of the country, homeowners still rely on their heating systems to keep them warm during the fall and winter months. Many homeowners only call for a technician if there’s something wrong with their HVAC system, but there are many benefits to preventive maintenance. Here are four reasons to remember to schedule fall HVAC maintenance.
1. Better Indoor Air Quality
You may not see it, but your HVAC system is dirtier than it looks. When in operation, the moving air moves pet dander, bacteria, pollen and other allergens around your home. This impacts your indoor air quality and triggers symptoms in those who suffer from asthma or allergies.
2. Cleaner Home
Dust and dirt in the air don’t just impact your health but impacts the cleanliness of your home. Not only does it make it more difficult to keep your house clean, but it increases the wear and tear of your HVAC system. You can help your HVAC system by cleaning or replacing your filters or switching to a ductless AC, so you don’t need to worry about scheduling a duct cleaning.
3. Increases System Efficiency
When you don’t schedule regular maintenance for your HVAC system, not only are you at risk of a breakdown or having to worry about repairs, but you also have to worry about efficiency. When your HVAC system doesn’t receive the maintenance it needs, it has to work harder to keep you comfortable, using more energy and lowering its efficiency.
4. Lower Cost for Repairs
When you don’t provide your HVAC system with the maintenance it needs, it wears out faster. Instead of the typical service life of 10 to 15 years, you’ll cut the lifespan of your unit in half. Regular maintenance prevents small issues from becoming bigger problems and expensive repairs.
