HVAC Maintenance 101

Why Use Professional HVAC Services?

Summer is approaching. As we all know, this is the season when we use our AC systems most. In order to make sure that we will not have any problems with our cooling units during the hot summer days, it is a good idea to book professional HVAC services for expert inspection and maintenance, if needed. This should be done every year before the high season in order to extend the life of your AC and make sure that it is functioning properly without consuming more energy than expected. This is valid especially for cooling units which are older than 5 years.

  • In fact, some AC manufacturers even recommend that your HVAC unit gets maintained not only once but twice a year.
  • Keep in mind that maintaining your air filters clean can lower your AC unit’s electricity use by 5%-15%. This is why you’d better change your filters once every 2-3 months.
  • If you maintain your heating and cooling unit on a regular basis, your repair costs as well as your electrical bills will be about 50% lower than those of the homeowners who fail to book any professional maintenance. Ideally, the ratio of spending for HVAC systems should be: 72% for preventative maintenance and 28% for corrective maintenance.
  • The older your AC gets, the higher its electrical consumption will become without proper maintenance, so make sure that you keep your air conditioning unit functioning economically as long as possible. If you do not know how to do it, you’d better ask a specialist in HVAC services.
