Regular maintenance for your HVAC system can help you save money and stay comfortable. You should have the heater and air conditioner in your Port St. Lucie, Florida, home checked by an experienced professional at least once per year. If you don’t get proper HVAC maintenance, you could have high utility bills, poor indoor air quality, or frequent breakdowns.
High Utility Bills
Common issues like a malfunctioning thermostat, leaky ductwork, or a refrigerant leak can increase your utility bills. By getting your system checked often, you can catch these problems before they start to waste energy. You can also extend your HVAC system’s life, get rid of uncomfortable warm areas or drafts, and learn about convenient ways to save energy like using ceiling fans.
Poor Indoor Air Quality
A dirty air filter can spread contaminants like dust, dirt, pet dander, or pollen instead of catching them. It also forces your HVAC system to use more energy by reducing airflow in your ductwork. Pollutants in your air can cause allergy or asthma symptoms, sinus problems, eye irritation, sore throats, and other health problems. They can also increase the amount of dust on your floors and furniture.
A sudden malfunction can make your home miserable. Having your system checked regularly is much more convenient than having to cancel your plans to wait for repairs. You can also catch many issues before more extensive, costly work is necessary. If you experience breakdowns often despite regular maintenance, you should replace your HVAC system before it fails completely.
