If you have done any online research for heating, cooling, or air quality, we’re sure you’ve seen maintenance promotions from HVAC companies in the Windsor-Essex area (us too probably). But what makes routine maintenance on your home’s heating and cooling system so important? Well… what if we told you a small investment could extend your system’s longevity, improve your home’s comfort, and actually save you money in the long run. Well, folks, that is why HVAC maintenance completed by a certified technician is so important for all Windsor-Essex homes! Let’s dive deeper.
1. HVAC Maintenance Saves You Money
Regular maintenance on your home’s HVAC system will significantly reduce the likelihood of costly breakdowns. System breakdowns often stem from simple issues that a certified service technician could have spotted and prevented during regular maintenance.
Beyond total system failures, playing hide and seek from the recommended maintenance schedule is costing you money every month. The manufacturer’s energy efficiency levels are only applicable when the system is running as intended, with the proper level of fluids, and properly cleaned. There is a reason your manufacturer warranty is often voided with frequent system neglect.
This is why we say a small investment now will lead to big savings in the long run!
2. HVAC Maintenance Extends the Life of Your System
This goes without saying – but regular maintenance will extend the life of your system by a large margin. Your HVAC system never stops even if you forget it’s there! Particularly with the seasons of Windsor-Essex County, your system does not get a rest. Now relate that to other machines you use daily… like your car. Your car requires frequent maintenance and oil changes to run for a long time. Your heating and cooling systems are in the same boat.
3. HVAC Maintenance Improves Your Home’s Comfort
A home is not a home without proper heating and cooling. You may not need a whole new system even if it feels like your home is always playing catch-up to the changing weather. Regular HVAC maintenance improves your system’s ability to distribute warmth and cold efficiently and effectively.
Absolute Comfort also looks beyond the system itself to ensure your home is as comfortable as possible. The issue could also lie within your home’s ductwork. Ductwork is responsible for transporting your central air throughout the entire home and into the appropriate rooms. Build-ups of dust and mold within your home’s ductwork can lead to unwanted discomfort, smells, allergens, and noises. We have seen far too many customer’s respiratory issues stem from poor indoor air quality. The air trapped within your home contains more airborne pollutants than the air outside your home whether you can see them or not! Proper HVAC system maintenance will improve the indoor air quality and comfort within your home.
4. HVAC Maintenance Gives You Peace of Mind!
Regular HVAC maintenance provides homeowners with peace of mind. Peace of mind in the knowledge that you are not paying extra every month for running your HVAC system for no reason. Peace of mind that you are lowering your carbon footprint by consuming less fuel to achieve indoor comfort. Peace of mind that your HVAC system will not suddenly crash when you have a house full of relatives staying for the weekend. Your HVAC system is important and it is a good feeling to know it is operating how it should!
If your home just doesn’t feel the same as it used to and you can’t put your finger on it, it may be time to have a certified technician take a look at your HVAC system! Your system could be impacted your daily comfort and you may not even realize it. Stay comfortable Windsor-Essex!
