Since summer is just around the corner, it’s time to get a head start on household maintenance and repairs. A tune-up helps reduce the chances of your HVAC system quitting on you in the hottest part of the year. If you’re not entirely convinced, below are five reasons you need a spring tune-up for your Glen View, IL, HVAC system.
1. Better Energy Efficiency
The longer your HVAC system runs, the more the components wear down and the harder your system has to work. When your system works harder to provide the same level of comfort, it loses its efficiency. Regular tune-ups will help keep your HVAC system’s efficiency level as high as possible.
2. Improved Indoor Air Quality
A dirty air filter not only decreases HVAC efficiency but also impacts your indoor air quality. Clogged air filters allow pollen, dust, or other particulate pollution to circulate your home, which affects your health. It’s recommended to change filters once every other month, or sooner if you have pets.
3. Longer Lifespan
Without regular maintenance, your HVAC system endures wear and tear, which puts stress on the components and leads to early system failure. Routine maintenance helps to extend your HVAC’s lifespan, which saves you money.
4. Protects Your Warranty
A warranty protects you if your HVAC system malfunctions or breaks due to a fault on behalf of the manufacturer. Manufacturer warranties typically protect you for 10 years, but you have to make sure to follow the conditions of the warranty so that you don’t void it. This means you need proof a certified technician maintained the system.
5. Saves on Utility Bills
Regular maintenance relieves stress from your HVAC system, which increases its efficiency. In turn, this reduces the energy used by your HVAC equipment by as much as 30%.
