3 Reasons for Spring HVAC Maintenance

Spring is beautiful here in Charleston, SC, but warm temperatures and using your AC will soon be here. Did you know that you should schedule HVAC system maintenance with a specialist at least every spring? Here are three ways that doing this will increase the efficiency of your system and even save you some money.

1. HVAC Maintenance Reduces Allergens

Spring and summer air is typically rich with a variety of pollen. This mixes with other household particulate matter like dust and pet dander. These irritating elements can trigger unpleasant reactions in people with seasonal allergies. An HVAC system that has a dirty filter will only allow these fine particles into your indoor breathing air, so have a certified HVAC specialist come in to clean your system and change your filters.

2. Maintenance Prevents Repairs and Breakdowns

Did you know that a dirty air filter is the No. 1 cause of HVAC failure? When there are particles like pollen, dust, and dander on the filter, the air handler needs to work harder, which can cause the motor to overwork. As time passes, this will reduce the lifespan of your HVAC system, which is why regular preventive maintenance by a professional can save you headaches.

3. HVAC Maintenance Helps Make Systems More Efficient

In addition to improving your indoor air quality, regular maintenance can improve system efficiency. As we mentioned, an air handler works harder when there are obstructions like dander and pollen, and when it works harder, it uses more energy. When a system is well-maintained, you’ll save on your energy bill and boost overall system efficiency.

Call us at AC Heating and Air Conditioning Services for spring HVAC maintenance by professionals who provide all the services you need to keep your system working effectively and efficiently. Don’t hesitate because not scheduling maintenance may invite breakdowns and encourage indoor allergens.
