Your HVAC system is the heart of your Baton Rouge, Louisiana, home and is vital to maintaining its comfort. Unfortunately, over time, your system can lose its efficiency, resulting in higher utility bills and reduced overall longevity. The good news is that you can help your HVAC system last longer by investing in routine maintenance. Routine maintenance can improve longevity in many ways, such as:
Finding Failing Parts Early
Regular HVAC maintenance can catch minor problems before they have the time to become major ones. When parts become worn or damaged, they can become loose or cause other components to malfunction, leading to possible breakdowns and costly repairs.
Performing regular maintenance early in the life of your system can also allow you to catch potential problems with your system while they are still under warranty.
Keeping Your System Clean
Dirt, debris, pollen, and dander can clog up the components and make them work less effectively. The less efficiently your HVAC system runs, the harder it will have to work to maintain the temperature in your house. The harder the system works, the more rapidly that the parts will wear out and eventually fail, leading to your HVAC system requiring replacement.
Improving Problems With Airflow
Having the proper airflow is required to keep your system heating and cooling as it needs to. When the airflow in your home is impeded by a buildup of dust and dirt either in your ductwork or other components of your system, it will reduce the efficiency of your system. To compensate, your system will run longer and more often, which can lower the life span of your system.
With regular HVAC maintenance, your technician will thoroughly check for proper airflow and find areas where airflow might be inhibited, rectifying these problems to get your system running smarter and not harder.
