While you’re likely looking forward to those long summer days, it’s best to prepare for the summer heat before it arrives. While it’s easy to lose track of the days when you’re busy, you shouldn’t forget your regular spring HVAC maintenance. These are five reasons why spring HVAC maintenance is important in your Jackson, NJ, home.
Better Indoor Air Quality
One part of maintenance includes changing the filter on your HVAC system. A dirty air filter no longer traps pollen, pet dander or other particulates that impact your indoor air quality. According to Better Home Guides, most professionals recommend changing your home air filter every 60-90 days.
Higher Energy Efficiency
A system that receives regular maintenance works with greater efficiency than one that doesn’t. When your HVAC system has adequate lubrication and no worn or damaged parts, it doesn’t have to work as hard to keep you comfortable.
A Longer Lifespan
You want your HVAC system to last as long as possible since it’s expensive to replace. The longer you have your system, the more value it provides and the more money you save. Preventive maintenance keeps your system running longer, so you don’t have to deal with costly repairs or replacements.
Lower Electric Bills
When you run your air conditioner all summer, you likely brace yourself for higher energy bills each month. A system that runs inefficiently uses more energy to keep you comfortable, which raises your bills even more. Regular maintenance increases efficiency, which helps keep utility costs lower.
A Valid Warranty
Your warranty protects your HVAC system in case your air conditioner malfunctions or breaks down due to a manufacturing fault. Therefore, it only makes sense that you do everything you can to protect your warranty. Without regular maintenance from an HVAC professional, you risk voiding your warranty.
