How Annual Preventive Maintenance Benefits Your HVAC Systems

Your HVAC system is like your vehicle in that it needs regular maintenance to continuously operate at peak performance. You shouldn’t wait until you have a problem to have your system looked at; annual preventive maintenance can help you keep your energy costs down while extending your system’s longevity by several years.

The ideal times to have maintenance performed on your HVAC system are in the fall and spring before harsher weather sets in. This provides you with the peace of mind knowing that you won’t have to worry about losing your cooling or heating capabilities when you need them the most.

Annual preventive maintenance for either your heating or cooling system will include a detailed cleaning of all the components. All of the moving parts will also be lubricated so that they can operate with ease. This helps to minimize the work load for your system, lowering costs and reducing wear and tear.

All components will be inspected for signs of deterioration. By catching deteriorating parts before they fail, you can replace them and avoid an unexpected breakdown once you begin using your HVAC system more.

For your heating system maintenance, all of the gas connections need to be inspected and secured to make sure they aren’t at risk of leaking carbon monoxide — a deadly by-product of the combustion process. Annual preventive maintenance will help reduce the likelihood that your family will suffer exposure to this harmful gas.

There are also things you can do yourself to keep your HVAC system working efficiently:

  • Replace air filters regularly
  • Keep outdoor unit clear of debris
  • Clear out condensate pan
  • Don’t block air registers with furniture or curtains
