Without HVAC preventive maintenance, the lifespan of your HVAC equipment may be reduced by half. On route to an early grave, your Conyers, GA home’s system may require one expensive repair after another. Indoor comfort will suffer; utility bills will rise. Here’s what happens when you skip HVAC tuneups:
Grit in Your System
After a year of hard work, your equipment will be coated with dust that slows down the system, makes it overwork and drives up utility bills. Over time, the dirt can penetrate deeply into the system and seriously damage the unit.
Clogs in the Drain Line
The condensate drain line provides an exit for the moisture your AC extracts from the air. It can get clogged over time. The moisture backs up into the unit and can make the cooling coils freeze up. Clogs can cause the drain pan to fill then overflow damaging drywall and flooring.
Frequent HVAC Breakdowns
Industry studies confirm that most HVAC repairs and emergency equipment replacements are due to poor maintenance. As worn parts, minor equipment malfunctions and unnecessary friction go untreated, issues that could have been treated early on morph into serious problems that are expensive to fix.
Without regular equipment checks, a faulty furnace connection or a cracked heat exchanger can cause fires, indoor air pollution, improper burner operation and carbon monoxide leaks. Loose electrical connections in your AC can create additional safety hazards. Dangerous refrigerant leaks can develop.
Weak airflow can undermine indoor comfort and reduce the efficiency of your HVAC by up to 15 percent. Clogged filters can cause the unit to freeze up and the motor to overheat. Dirty blower components can weaken airflow and harm the system.
