Pitfalls of Unmanaged HVAC Systems

July 23, 2018

An HVAC system that is not routinely maintained can lead to a host of problems, including high energy bills and even health issues. If you or your family suffer from unexplained ailments like shortness of breath, asthma, coughing and sneezing and other such symptoms, it is possible that the air quality in your home could use some improvement.

Most people never think about the air they breathe indoors. The good news is that this can be easily corrected by joining a maintenance service program for your HVAC system. Regular HVAC “tune-ups” will ensure that the air circulating inside your home is clean and safe for everyone.

Is Your Utility Bill Too High?

Your home and your wallet will thank you when you join an HVAC maintenance program. Besides providing good air quality inside your home, regular HVAC maintenance is also energy efficient.

When there is dust and other debris in the air, your HVAC system is forced to work harder and uses up more energy. You will notice a drop in your utility cost when you have a well-maintained HVAC system.

Pay Attention to Your Dust

If there is too much dust inside your home, you might also have poor air quality. Dust accumulation and other toxins in the air force your HVAC system to work unusually harder.

Other products in your own home, such as disinfectants, glues, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), tobacco smoke, perfume, mold or fungi, fumes, and pesticides can obstruct your HVAC system and create a host of problems. These issues are addressed and eliminated in every routine system inspection.

Regular HVAC Maintenance Is Important

Is your HVAC system operating as it should? You will never know without regular HVAC system maintenance. Without regular maintenance, your home is susceptible to unhealthy levels of air quality indoors.

A system “tune-up” will keep it running smoothly year-round and you will never have unexpected breakdowns. If an issue is found during maintenance, it will be addressed and resolved immediately. Regular maintenance ensures that your HVAC system performs at peak efficiency and that your home is comfortable year-round.

Regular HVAC maintenance is key to prolonging the life of your HVAC system. It is the smartest thing you can do for the health and safety of your home and loved ones. You also have the added peace of mind that if a problem should arise in the future, you will receive priority service without the extra cost to
