The Importance of Preventative Maintenance
With spring just around the corner, now is the perfect time to schedule your spring Preventative Maintenance appointment with ADE Heating and Cooling! After a long, cold winter, spring's bright sun and warm weather is almost here! The scheduling of spring Preventative Maintenance is important for several reasons: It eliminates unexpected expenses and breakdowns, keeps costs down because repairs are not made on an emergency basis, extends the lives of common elements and stops problems before they occur.
The better a person maintains their air conditioning unit, the longer that unit will be able to function well and provide cooling to a home or building. With proper AC maintenance, a unit can last well over 10 years. Considering the amount of money a person spends to install an HVAC system, it makes sense you would want to keep that unit running well for as long as possible.
A properly maintained AC unit will not only keep a home cool, but it will also prevent problems with air quality. Clean filters and coils mean better breathing for an entire family. An unmaintained HVAC unit is a breeding ground for dirt, mold and bacteria, all of which can cause or worsen respiratory problems for those living in the home or building.
Research shows that dirty or unmaintained units need to work 20 percent harder to produce the same amount of cooling as a well-maintained machine. Less energy will be expended when it is running, which means less stress on the components of the machine. The less wear and tear on the machine means simple maintenance during the spring months. Maintenance will be much quicker and smoother if a person takes the preventive steps to keep a system running in tip-top shape.
For many obvious reasons, HVAC maintenance is important. Scheduling regular checks and following through on fixing minor problems will help homeowners enjoy the comfort of a system with the worry of it failing. A well-maintained unit is likely to have less serious problems, meaning less hassle and unnecessary costs.
