Your Titusville, Florida, home is your sanctuary. Therefore, you want it to feel as comfortable as possible all year long. When you run the HVAC system year-round, it’s vitally important to have regular maintenance on it so that your family is comfortable and stays healthy. Let’s look at several benefits you’ll receive with HVAC maintenance.
Reduce Allergy and Asthma Symptoms
Pollen, pet dander, and dust mites are major sources of triggers for those who suffer from allergies or asthma. When these contaminants build up in the air filters and ductwork of the HVAC system, they eventually infiltrate your home. Because these impurities cause allergic attacks to those who are sensitive to them, you need to try to eliminate them before they enter your home.
Regular maintenance includes cleaning and changing the air filters as well as making sure there’s no buildup of dirt, dust or pollutants within the system itself. You can greatly improve your home’s indoor air quality with preventive HVAC maintenance.
Your Home Stays Cleaner
Even if you or your family don’t have allergies or asthma, an unmaintained and dirty HVAC system allows all the accumulated dirt and dust to blow into your home where it settles on your furniture, shelves, carpets and even the kids’ toys. Regular maintenance as well as periodical cleaning of the ductwork helps to keep your home cleaner. As a result, you won’t have to dust as often.
No Inconvenient Breakdowns
When the temperatures soar and the humidity levels are high, the last thing you want is a breakdown of your air conditioner. And on those rare evenings when you do have the heater turned on, you want to know that it’ll keep your family toasty warm.With regular preventive maintenance, our service technicians can spot any issues and repair them immediately. As a result, you’ll prevent major breakdowns and costly repairs.
The System Runs More Quietly
Without maintenance, you may experience banging, clanking, squealing or other odd noises coming from the system. Strange noises usually indicate a broken or loose part. Not only does this create a racket in your house. But if left unchecked, it can cause further damage to the system.
During our regular maintenance inspection, we will notice any broken parts and repair or replace them before they become expensive repairs. Your HVAC system is a big investment, and you want to ensure that it runs well throughout its entire lifespan.
Better Humidity Control
Have you ever felt that no matter how cool you have the temperature set on your air conditioner, your home still feels muggy? One of the functions of your air conditioner is to extract excess moisture from the air and expel it outside.
Clogged air filters, dirty ductwork, low refrigerant or damaged coils can reduce the efficiency of your air conditioner, resulting in higher humidity levels. Keep your home from feeling muggy with regular maintenance.
Even Cooling and Heating
Do you notice that certain rooms or areas of your house aren’t evenly heated or cooled? There are a few reasons this might happen. But if your HVAC system is straining hard due to negligence, it won’t be able to deliver treated air evenly. With regular maintenance, your system will run efficiently and be able to keep your home evenly cooled or heated.
One thing that you as the homeowner can do for preventive maintenance is to make sure that all the air supply vents and registers are open and free from dirt and dust. Clean vents allow the conditioned air to flow freely. As a result, you’ll help to prevent system strain and poor IAQ.
As you can see, regular preventive HVAC maintenance provides lots of great benefits that help to keep your home healthier and more comfortable. Fall is a great time to have your air conditioner maintained. Give our professional team at Merritt Island Air & Heat a call today to schedule your appointment.
