Seasonal HVAC maintenance is the most effective way to keep your system running efficiently all year round. It helps to prevent unexpected breakdowns, lowers energy costs, and improves indoor air quality.

How Important is an HVAC System?

HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) systems are essential for maintaining temperature, humidity, and air quality in residential and commercial settings. System components collaborate to control heating and cooling, ensuring proper function. But when components fail due to lack of proper maintenance, you may face breakdowns or expensive repairs.

Spring Into Action

Your furnace has worked hard all winter, so give it a thorough clean bill of health to ensure there is no damage, dust or debris buildup. A spring pre-season checkup is also ideal for identifying any issues that may have arisen over the winter and addressing them through repairs or replacement by certified technicians.

As you prepare to adjust your thermostat for the changing seasons, remember that programmable thermostats are intelligent climate control upgrades that can save you money, improve air quality, and boost energy efficiency.

Schedule Regular Maintenance

Maintain your regular bi-annual HVAC maintenance appointments, regardless of the season. This keeps your system up to date on critical components such as coils and drains, electrical components, ductwork, filter replacements, thermostat testing, and more.

Improving Indoor Air Quality

As Spring approaches, Mother Nature’s favorite mass of microspores in a seed plant, also known as pollen, can have an impact on your indoor air quality. Your home’s indoor air quality (IAQ) is critical for keeping allergens and pollutants at bay while allowing for consistent clean air flow throughout your home.

HVAC maintenance includes an extensive inspection of air handlers and ductwork for potential leaks or damage. Dust and dust mites, pet dander, secondhand smoke, and particle matter are just a few examples of air pollutants that can be harmful to your health. Just an important reminder that replacing dirty, clogged filters with clean ones,  can reduce your air conditioner’s energy consumption by 5% to 15%.

Have an experienced HVAC professional inspect your home’s indoor air quality to ensure that there are no toxic airborne irritants present. Also consider investing in an air purifier system to provide year-round protection from harmful pollen and toxins.

Extend the HVAC lifespan

HVAC manufacturers design strong, powerful and durable units that, with proper routine maintenance and inspections, should provide years of dependable service. There are several proactive steps you can take to help ensure long-term durability, including regular maintenance, a programmable thermostat, sealing your home, avoiding overworking the unit, checking for leaks, upgrading insulation, and more.
