Spring maintenance of your HVAC system should be a part of your yearly spring cleaning routine. You only need to clean your evaporator coil in Potomac Heights, MD, once a year, and that should be in springtime before summer heat sets in. The benefits of spring HVAC maintenance include the following.
1. Increased Efficiency
A well-maintained HVAC system operates at optimal efficiency without the hindrance of dirt and particulates, worn parts and inadequate lubrication. When running at peak efficiency, the HVAC system requires less energy to cool your home. This lowers your monthly utility bills.
2. Validate the Warranty
Most manufacturers require that a certified contractor maintains your HVAC system annually for your warranty to stay active. HVAC maintenance involves visual inspection, thorough cleaning, inspection of the electrical components and running a functionality test on the system.
3. Enhanced Indoor Air Quality
When the filter clogs, it no longer traps dust, pollen and fine particulates. These substances enter the ductwork, coat the components of your system and reduce the flow of air into your home. Further, the pollutants can circulate in your indoor system, spoiling the indoor air quality.
During spring HVAC maintenance, our AC technician will check and replace the air filter and clean the entire system. You’ll reduce the effects of dust and allergens.
4. Prolonged Lifespan
Failure to maintain your HVAC system leads to the buildup of rust, and the system components might corrode. Wear and tear also affect system components, and this might cause unexpected breakdowns. Through spring maintenance, you can reduce the agents of rust and corrosion on the system.
Through routine spring maintenance, we can catch major underlying issues that may stall your system when summer comes. You avoid costly repairs and uncomfortable indoor temperatures in spring and summer through a seasonal maintenance schedule.
