How Often Should You Schedule HVAC Maintenance?
April 21, 2023
Proper HVAC maintenance is essential to ensure that your heating and cooling system runs efficiently and effectively. Regular maintenance can help prevent costly repairs and extend the lifespan of your system. With simple, regular maintenance, you can help keep your Luxaire® system running reliably and efficiently. But how often should you schedule maintenance? Luxaire has general recommendations HERE.
As your HVAC system components wear down or are not properly maintained, it will become more difficult for your HVAC system to operate efficiently. More energy will be needed to cool and heat your home or office. For example, as an air filter becomes clogged, it obstructs airflow and forces your system to work harder in order to circulate conditioned air. Routine maintenance can keep heating and cooling costs reasonable.
The Importance of Regular HVAC Maintenance
Regular HVAC maintenance is crucial for the longevity and efficiency of your heating and cooling system. Neglecting maintenance can lead to costly repairs and even the need for a full system replacement. Homeowners might skip HVAC maintenance to avoid spending money where they see nothing wrong with the system or might simply forget to maintain their HVAC system. Neglecting HVAC maintenance can result in an inefficient system that increases energy bills, a system that breaks down regularly, and a system that will likely need to be replaced before serving its expected lifetime.
What is regular HVAC maintenance? At a minimum, regular maintenance means tending to your heating and cooling system at the beginning of the season when you will begin to start using the heating or cooling equipment. Here in Mercer County Pennsylvania for example the home owner is recommended to schedule heating maintenance by November and schedule air conditioner maintenance by May. The home owner might consider changing air filters more frequently, for example every two months. Regular maintenance depends strongly on the age of your HVAC equipment and environmental factors such as the amount of dust in the air.
