Why Your HVAC Checkup Is Important

While it’s true that modern HVAC systems are more efficient, it’s still a good idea to have seasonal inspections to ensure the system will be working when you need it in the cold Ann Arbor winters. Below are some additional reasons why it’s important not to skip your seasonal checkups.

Increase Energy Efficiency

When your HVAC system isn’t properly maintained, it can become less efficient over time. This in turn results in higher energy consumption and increased utility bills. An HVAC checkup addresses the issues that were causing your system to work harder than needed.

Add to the Lifespan

Regularly cleaning coils and lubricating moving parts can all help increase your HVAC unit’s lifespan. You’ll reduce premature wear and tear on the unit and reduce the need for costly repairs or replacing parts. All of this results in a dependably comfortable home environment.

Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

A well-maintained HVAC unit can reduce the amount of pollutants in your indoor air. When you regularly change the air filters and clean the ducts, you’re taking extra steps to ensure that the air circulating throughout your home is fresh and healthy. This is especially important for families with pets.

Added Safety

Your furnace or other heating systems can easily become a safety risk if not properly maintained. For example, it could leak carbon monoxide from a cracked heat exchange. There’s also the matter that a heater not working on a frigid Michigan winter morning could lead to dangerous interior temperatures. Regular inspections can help you anticipate problems before they become emergencies.

Increased Comfort

An HVAC system operating at peak performance doesn’t have to work as hard to maintain consistent temperatures throughout your home. You can rely on added comfort year-round from the air conditioner and the heat.

Overall Cost Savings

Preventative maintenance on your HVAC system will cost you less overall than emergency repairs – and it’s a less stressful approach. When your HVAC is running more efficiently, you’ll also be saving money on your utility bills.

Peace of Mind

Knowing your HVAC system is regularly inspected and maintained helps you breathe a little easier as you enter the winter season.

Preservation of Home Value

When you sell your home, potential home buyers want to know what appliances will need to be replaced, and when. A well-maintained HVAC unit can be a difference maker in a home sale, due to the cost of the investment for the homeowner. They can rest easier knowing they won’t need to replace it or make any expensive repairs.

Schedule Your HVAC Checkup, Before the Winter Weather Sets In

It’s helpful for Dexter area homeowners to feel assured that their HVAC system is in proper working order before the first frigid temperatures set in. Homeowners can take simple measures such as changing air filters and making sure vents are unobstructed to ensure that their heat and air are working properly.

But regular seasonal checkups are necessary to ensure the health of the system as the weather sets in. It helps to have a maintenance agreement in place. If anything is wrong with the system, it helps to have an HVAC company you trust for repair and replacement.
