If you have an HVAC system, it’s important to keep it well-maintained in order to ensure proper functionality and ideal efficiency. Most of us don’t give our HVAC system a second thought until it isn’t working properly. At Premier Home Comfort, we encourage you to keep up on maintenance with your HVAC system to prevent problems from happening and to get better general use out of it. Regular HVAC cleaning will keep your system operating in top condition and help it last longer.
HVAC cleaning only needs to be done twice a year, once before summer and once before winter. A main reason many people look into an HVAC cleaning is to help improve the air quality in their home. The filters on your HVAC unit do a good job of blocking dust and debris, but they are not 100% efficient and become less so the longer between filter changes. The dust that gets through will be circulated through the vents and throughout the house. Many people notice an improvement in their allergy symptoms after an HVAC cleaning due to the reduction of extra particulate matter floating through the air.
Routine HVAC cleanings will also improve the efficiency of your HVAC. As dust accumulates on the coils, motors, and air handling units, the machine becomes less efficient at heating or cooling air. It makes your HVAC system work that much harder to maintain the temperature of your home, which decreases the life span of your equipment. It also takes more energy to run, which costs you more money.
In between HVAC cleanings, it’s important to change the filters every few months. This will go a long way in helping reduce the amount of gunk that builds up on the interior of the unit and in the vents. Please give us a call at Premier Home Comfort when you’re ready to schedule your HVAC cleaning.
