Scheduling regular maintenance on your heating and cooling systems may seem, at first glance, like an unneeded expense. However, spring HVAC maintenance can actually save you money by ensuring your systems are operating as efficiently as possible. At one affordable cost, a tune-up can help ensure your home stays cool all summer long and prevent costly repairs down the line—which is especially important in the middle of a hot, humid Maryland summer. It can even help to extend the life of your AC systems!
Benefits of Spring HVAC Maintenance Include:
- Improved indoor air quality– One of the most important benefits of spring HVAC maintenance is that it allows you to eliminate the dust, dirt, and debris that have accumulated in your air conditioner throughout the year. A dirty system is one of the primary reasons that cooling and heating systems fail. Keeping yours clean and changing the air filters regularly can make your home more comfortable, improve the indoor air quality, and reduce symptoms of asthma or allergies in the process.
- Early diagnosis of repair issues – Spring HVAC maintenance allows you to identify any issues with your system early on, so that you can have them fixed before the weather starts to turn—saving you the stress and costs of a major AC repair in the middle of summer.
- Reduced energy bills – A mechanical system that has to push air through a clogged air filter or layers of dust uses more energy and runs less efficiently. This waste translates directly to higher natural gas and electric bills. A spring AC tune-up removes the dust and allows professionals to check out all aspects of system performance, resulting in lower energy bills through the cooling season.
- Mid-season breakdown prevention – Perhaps the most important reason to schedule spring HVAC maintenance is to prevent your systems from breaking down in the middle of a hot, humid summer day. A well-maintained system is much less likely to have service interruptions than one that only sees an HVAC service technician when there’s a repair problem.
Fall HVAC maintenance is recommended as well (for many of the same reasons) to check the functionality of your heat after it’s been dormant through the year.
