People take around 20,000 breaths per day and spend up to 90% of their time indoors, according to Kenneth Mendez, president of the nonprofit Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America. This means you’ll want to keep the air quality in your Maitland, FL, home as good as possible. Part of ensuring high air quality is regular maintenance for your HVAC system, so check out these four benefits of a maintenance plan.
Improves the System’s Efficiency
When you run your HVAC system daily, the amount of airborne debris captured can accumulate inside over time. A dirty HVAC system must work harder to control the indoor environment, which means higher energy costs. Routine cleaning of your HVAC system can reduce your power bill.
Prevents HVAC Component Failure
Like any machine, an HVAC system consists of many parts that can wear down over the years. When one of these parts fails, the system can continue to run, causing further damage. A regular tune-up by a highly trained HVAC technician can prevent minor issues from escalating.
Maintains Good Air Quality
The EPA notes that indoor air can contain up to five times the pollution levels of outdoor air. Dust, pet dander, pollen and more harmful particles can recirculate in your home without routine HVAC maintenance.
When you schedule regular cleaning and filter replacement, you can rest assured that you’re breathing high-quality air. An HVAC technician can teach you more about how to improve your indoor air quality.
Prolongs the Life of Your System
Without intervention, minor issues in your heating or cooling unit could take a toll on the life of your HVAC system. If you commit to a maintenance plan for your HVAC system, knowledgeable technicians can catch problems early during routine inspections. An HVAC maintenance agreement lets you get the most out of your investment and prolongs the lifespan of your heating and cooling systems.
An HVAC maintenance plan offers you the advantages of lower energy costs, clean indoor air, prevention of equipment breakdowns and prolonged system operation.
