Studies show that regular HVAC maintenance in Atlanta cuts energy costs, reduces the potential for system repair and replacement, improves indoor air quality and extends equipment lifespan. If you want to enjoy these benefits, schedule AC and heating maintenance every spring and fall. Here are four ways your HVAC will reward you:
1. Lower Energy Costs
Annual maintenance optimizes equipment performance and can save up to 40 percent on Atlanta energy bills. Without service, system performance declines, indoor comfort diminishes and energy bills increase. Your system will be at risk for heating and AC repair or replacement.
2. Longer Equipment Lifespan
After a year of normal operation, HVAC equipment gets clogged with dust, dirt and grime. In this condition, it must work harder to keep you comfortable, and it’s likely to break and stop working. Heating or AC repair will likely solve the problem, but it will cost more than maintenance. In a worst-case scenario, you’ll be looking at system replacement.
3. Cleaner Indoor Air
Indoor air quality is closely tied to the condition of your HVAC equipment. The AC evaporator coil can get corrupted by mold. Dirty fans will blow pollutants into your home 24/7. Mold spores, bacteria, pollen, dust mites, viruses and dander can all be present in the air you breathe every day. These irritants can make you sick; they worsen respiratory disorders, aggravate allergies, and can cause flu-like symptoms and irritations of the eyes, nose and throat. Maintenance includes a thorough system cleaning that greatly reduces the presence of these toxins in your home.
4. Fewer Repair Calls
HVAC maintenance can reduce heating and AC repairs by up to 95 percent. Your technician will replace any worn parts, inspect and repair ailing electrical connections, and alert you to potential problems. Left unattended, these issues can escalate and seriously harm your equipment.
