Hi, I’m Roger from Fire & Ice. As a residential sales professional, I have helped thousands of Central Ohio homeowners get the most out of their HVAC system. At Fire & Ice we believe in giving our customers as much information they need. In this video, we’re going to review why routine maintenance is important for your heating and cooling units.
Why Is Routine Maintenance for Your Heating and Cooling Unit(s) Important?
One of the most important reasons to have your HVAC system serviced twice a year, once for the heating season and once for the cooling season, is that it helps your HVAC system stay under warranty, but it also has several other benefits.
Saving Time, Money, and Effort
It will save time, money, and effort. One of the worst things that can happen is your home comfort system breaking down when you least expect it. Annual preventative maintenance can prevent this by catching potential problems before they become detrimental to your system. When a technician catches the issue before your unit breaks down, it saves time, money, and effort.
Extending the Lifespan of Your Unit
As a rule of thumb, a cleaner HVAC system will last longer. You can think of this like changing the oil in your car. Every 5,000 miles or so, your car needs an oil change. If not, your car will break down. The same goes for your HVAC system. If you don't invest in proper maintenance, you risk it breaking down, which will shorten the lifespan.
Improving Your IAQ & Overall Comfort
It improves your indoor air quality and overall comfort. A dirty air filter is one of the most common issues affecting indoor air quality and comfort within a home. Regardless of the type of air filter your HVAC system takes, you should check or replace your air filter every 30 - 60 days. Not only will clogged air filters severely reduce your home's indoor air quality, but they will also make your system work harder. This, in turn, shortens the life expectancy of your system. Moreover, when you routinely change your air filter, it also helps with your system's energy efficiency, which is a win for you and the environment!
