The Importance of HVAC Maintenance

The Importance of HVAC Maintenance

Routine HVAC maintenance is so important to the health and longevity of your HVAC system. Similarly, the benefits of regular and consistent maintenance not only positively impact your system, but the amount of money you can save, the efficiency of your energy and the quality of your air.

More Energy Efficient

Routinely maintaining your HVAC system can help increase overall energy efficiency and decrease a system’s carbon footprint. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, air conditioners account for almost 6% of all of the U.S.’s energy consumption while almost 177 million tons of carbon dioxide is released into the air each year.

HVAC maintenance helps to lower the amount of energy required to functionally run a unit. By cleaning your system’s filters, coils and pathways, your system doesn’t have to work as hard to push out clean, smooth air. Additionally, regular maintenance helps catch and prevent faulty parts or equipment before they fail and helps to keep everything running properly.

Saves You Money

An efficient HVAC system means lower energy bills each month, with units not using as much power to run properly. Additionally, with regular maintenance, you can catch a problem before it happens, saving you money on costly repairs or replacements. In fact, IAQA even mentions that “regular HVAC maintenance can reduce the risk of costly breakdowns by as much as 95%.” (originally posted on IAQA website)

Paying for routine maintenance upfront is proven to be more cost-effective than having to repair or even completely replace your HVAC system every few years. Consistent maintenance prolongs your system’s life, making your dollar stretch further.

Improved Air Quality

A clean and healthy HVAC system will also produce cleaner air for your facility. EPA Studies have shown that indoor airborne particles, pollutants and allergens can be 2-5x greater than the levels of outdoor air, and in some extreme cases, as much as 100x greater.

Regularly cleaning different aspects of your HVAC system such as the coils and filters will keep your equipment free from dirt and debris, which causes pollutants and allergens to form when not properly addressed. Routine maintenance will allow you to enjoy higher air quality and gain peace of mind.
