Spring is almost here in Westminster, MD, which means warmer temperatures and longer days. While you probably won’t need your air conditioner in March, chances are you might start using it by mid-April. Before you turn on your AC, you should schedule HVAC maintenance, and below are five reasons why.
1. Better Indoor Air Quality
The air filter in your HVAC system traps pollen, spores, pet hair, and other particulates. When you have a dirty or clogged air filter, it allows those particulates to contaminate your indoor air. During an HVAC maintenance visit, our technicians always check the air filter as part of our inspection.
2. Need Fewer Repairs
Spring maintenance helps ensure your indoor comfort all summer long. While your HVAC system might not need repairs now, maintenance helps prevent breakdowns during the hot summer months when repair requests are in high demand.
3. Longer Equipment Lifespan
One of the greatest benefits regular maintenance offers your HVAC system is an extended life expectancy. You receive more value from something that lasts a long time, and your HVAC system is no exception. Regular maintenance means you don’t have to replace such an important and costly system sooner necessary.
4. More Energy Efficient
Regular maintenance and cleaning for your HVAC system help it to run at optimal efficiency. When your system runs efficiently, this reduces wear and tear on the system and prevents it from working harder than it needs to. This, in turn, lowers your monthly utility costs.
5. Peace of Mind
When your HVAC system receives regular maintenance, this provides you and your family peace of mind that your AC will make it through the summer without breaking down. You don’t want to skip a tune-up only for it to break down in the middle of summer.
If you have an aging AC system that you’re not sure will make it through the summer, then don’t wait. Contact Siegman Forced Air Systems, Inc. today to have our technicians measure your cooling needs and assist with your next AC installation.
