It’s officially summer, which means that the majority of homes in our area will be using their air conditioning on full blast for the next few months ahead. In a hot and humid climate like ours, not to mention beaches filled with vacation homes and rental properties, it is more important than ever to ensure that your air conditioning system will be able to carry you through the hottest months of the year.
One of the best ways you can make sure that your AC is prepared is through annual HVAC maintenance. If you haven’t had your system cleaned, inspected, and had necessary repairs made this year, now is the time! Here are just a few of the reasons why HVAC maintenance is so important.
System Efficacy and efficiency: One of the most important reasons to have your HVAC system properly maintained is to ensure that your air conditioning will run at maximum efficiency and effectiveness. Simple things like cleaning or changing air filters, cleaning air ducts, and performing basic repairs can go a long way to keep your system running at peak performance and increase its lifespan.
Save Money: By keeping your system running at maximum efficiency, you’ll be saving a lot of money in the long run. Not only is an efficient system able to keep your home cool using less power and strength, lowering energy bills, but performing annual maintenance will also help to ensure that you won’t need to replace your HVAC system as quickly, and you’ll save money in major repairs over time by catching small issues as they arise and addressing them accordingly.
Avoid Emergencies: No one wants to deal with their air conditioning suddenly giving out on one of the hottest days of summer! It may seem unlikely, but we see it all of the time, and with summer being one of our busiest seasons of the year, it can be tough to deal with these kinds of emergencies immediately, which means that you and your family may be left to sweat it out for hours. The best way to avoid this type of debacle is through regular maintenance of your air conditioning system, where a professional can ensure that your system will be able to make it through the summer.
Happy Vacationers: If you do rent your property out during the summer, it’s vitally important that your vacationers have a pleasant experience in your home to ensure they return summer after summer. A huge component of their stay will be their comfort in your house, which means that keeping your air conditioning in good working order is key. Even if it will just be you and your family during the summer months in your home, there’s no excuse to be uncomfortable as the temperatures continue to rise!
Warranty: If you have a new HVAC system, it’s important to be aware of the system’s warranty. HVAC manufacturers’ require annual maintenance by a licensed professional to keep the warranty of the system valid. If you miss an annual check-up for your system and it breaks, there’s a chance it will no longer be covered under warranty, so be sure to keep up to date on your HVAC check-ups!
