It may seem like maintaining your HVAC System is an unnecessary hassle, and there is no reason to trouble yourself with it until something goes wrong. However, regularly scheduled maintenance can work wonders in prolonging the life of your Cooling and Heating System, meaning that you can put off costly replacements. Here’s how:
How often does my HVAC System need maintenance?
It is generally recommended to have your System professionally cleaned and inspected twice per year. These visits will ensure that your system remains in excellent working order throughout the cold winter months, hot humid summers, and beyond, year after year. Any problems can be resolved as they arise, so there is a smaller likelihood of disastrous surprises popping up during the Northern Virginia weather.
What is achieved through scheduled maintenance?
Yearly maintenance visits can work wonders in keeping your home clean and safe along with helping the life of your HVAC system. A series of checks on essential components (electrical connections, safety controls, defrost operations…) will ensure that your unit is functioning correctly and, most importantly, safely.
Another essential aspect of HVAC maintenance is checking the cleanliness of your unit’s evaporator coil. This will improve the efficiency of your system, helping the flow of air throughout your home. Other checks and cleaning operations of this nature will lower the possibility of harmful emissions.
Finally, lubricating the non-sealed motor bearings of your fan motor can work wonders in prolonging the motor’s life, allowing you to avoid costly repairs or replacements.
