why hvac maintenance is important

A good HVAC system ensures better indoor air quality and a comfortable home. But to make sure your HVAC unit is in decent condition, it needs to be well-maintained, either by you or a professional (or both!). HVAC maintenance can prevent malfunctions and pinpoint any deeper problems. For more detail on HVAC care, keep reading this blog by Roman Electric on all the reasons why routine HVAC maintenance is important.

1. It Reduces Heating and Cooling Costs

One of the main reasons why HVAC maintenance is so important is because it can save you a lot of money on your energy bills. According to the Department of Energy, by simply changing your air filter, you can reduce your cooling bills by up to 15 %! Imagine the savings you might see if you maintain other components of your heating and cooling system.

2. It Prevents Malfunction in the Long Run

 If you leave your trusty HVAC unit ignored, you might not notice the leak in your refrigerant lines, the clogged ductwork, or the frozen evaporator coil. Taking the time to inspect various parts of your heating and cooling system such as your vents, indoor handler and outdoor condenser can prevent sudden breakdowns. Bonus points if you have a professional HVAC technician stop by to tune-up your system and pinpoint any issues!

3. It Can Prevent Expensive Repairs

The last thing you need to worry about are your HVAC unit’s expensive repairs. By having consistent tune-ups and maintenance check-ins you can prevent countless repairs in the long run.

4. It Improves HVAC Efficiency

By taking even the smallest step to maintain your HVAC unit (such as changing your air filter monthly), you can improve your unit’s efficiency. Your indoor air quality will improve, and your system won’t have to work harder to provide the heating and cooling you need. Improve HVAC efficiency means more comfort for you, longevity for your system and fewer repair visits.

5. Improvement of Indoor Air Quality

When your HVAC unit is not well-maintained, it won’t be able to dehumidify and condition your indoor air well. This means an increase in excess moisture as well as pollen, allergens, dander, dust etc. A properly functioning HVAC unit that has been consistently taken care of will contribute to healthy indoor air quality and a healthy quality of life!
