With the scorching heat in Miami, FL, you definitely need your HVAC system in excellent working condition. Failure to schedule routine maintenance may lead to a sudden breakdown during the summer. It’s recommended that you have your system inspected before the start of the heating and cooling seasons. Read on to learn why HVAC maintenance is worth every penny.
1. It Enhances Energy Efficiency
Scheduling regular HVAC maintenance can significantly reduce your electric bills. According to the Department of Energy, you could save energy costs by 5 to 40% depending on the system or equipment you have. It is no secret that a variety of HVAC components need ongoing maintenance, or energy performance degradation can occur.
2. Reduces the Risk of Breakdowns and Failures
During an HVAC maintenance visit, a service technician will be able to identify any issues your HVAC system is developing while they are still minor. If there is an issue, the service technician can give you a diagnosis. Once they give you a diagnosis, they can fix the issue before your system breaks down and you need a replacement.
3. It Ensures Safe Operation
Having routine inspections of your HVAC system not only reduces the chances of costly repair and early failures of your equipment, but they also ensure that your system is operating safely. For example, during the routine inspection, a service specialist may identify a crack or system vent blockage that sends toxic carbon monoxide into the air supply or a wiring short circuit that poses a risk of fire in your home or business.
