Just like you get your car oil changed and checked regularly, it is important to do the same thing for your HVAC system. During a hot Texas summer, your system is running pretty much non-stop to keep your house cool. Therefore, it makes sense to make sure it is running properly, and you can do that with regular HVAC maintenance. No one wants their air conditioner to suddenly stop working on a hot and humid summer day. That is just one of many risks involved when you don’t get a regular AC tune up. Here are a few more.
Risk 1: Poor HVAC System Performance
Your HVAC system may not be running at its best because of something that is easy to fix. Whether it needs to be cleaned or a simple adjustment, BVS Home Experts can make sure your HVAC system is running at its best. When running smoothly, it uses less energy and saves more money over time.
Risk 2: Shorter Lifespan
Buying an HVAC unit is a big investment. Routine maintenance will make sure your system lasts longer. Problems can occur from general wear and tear. Left untreated, they get worse over time. It’s cheaper to have regular HAVC maintenance instead of letting the problem get worse and running your system to an early end.
Risk 3: Safety Concerns
It can be a safety risk when you ignore your HVAC unit. Annual maintenance can ensure the safety of you and your family. Some safety concerns include:
- Fire Hazard – When there is a leak in your oil or gas line, a loose connection in electric lines, or problems with wiring, it can be a fire hazard.
- Carbon Monoxide Leak – CO poisoning is tasteless and odorless and can go unnoticed. It is a dangerous health risk to breathe the poisonous gas.
- Water Leak – If there is a clog in your drainpipe, it may flood your house.
Regular maintenance can help avoid all of these concerns.
Risk 4: Lower Comfort Levels
A new or smooth-running HVAC system keeps the rooms in your home at a comfortable temperature. If some rooms are cooler or warmer than others, your vent might be dirty or blocked. Dirty vents make it difficult to distribute heat or cold evenly throughout your home. With repairs, you can ensure that you are comfortable in every room.
Risk 5: Too much Humidity
Other than cooling your home, your air conditioner manages humidity and keeps moisture levels under control. This is especially important in our humid Texas weather. Without seasonal maintenance, the system can become faulty and allow humidity into your home.
Risk 6: Loss of Peace of Mind
If you just moved into a home with an existing HVAC system, you may not know the unit’s age or the last time it was checked. To gain peace of mind, contact your local BVS Home Expert technician to come check your HVAC system.
