Your home is a lot like your car: it’s an important investment in your life that you must fix and maintain to keep it functioning properly. This means as an owner you have numerous responsibilities, including repairing things that break and performing preventative maintenance to keep it functioning to its full potential for as long as possible.
When it comes to your home, your air conditioning and heating are two of these systems that you should regularly maintain in order to ensure they function at peak capacity and work as long as possible. Maintenance from a Lewiston HVAC services expert can be a huge boost to your system; here are a few reasons why.
Does your heater or air conditioner have to run a lot longer in order to get your home to the same temperatures it did before? Have you noticed a sharp spike in your utility bills, even though it doesn’t seem like your temperatures are any different than usual? You may be suffering from an inefficient system. Having a technician inspect your system, clean your coils, change your filters, and inspect and repair your blower can all dramatically improve performance, even by as much as 15 to 25 percent! This results in less run time and substantial savings on your electric statement.
Maintenance occurs in more than just your indoor system; the outdoor unit is constantly exposed to sunlight, dust, dirt, and debris all year long, which means it needs some care on occasion too. A maintenance service, which includes cleaning your outdoor unit, straightening any bent cooling fins, and cleaning the coils from dust or dirt, can actually improve its capacity by 10 to 15 percent. Increased capacity means your system will be even more effective at cooling your home, since it will put more cool air through the vents, meaning it will run less, and thus be more efficient as well.
One of the most important parts of a maintenance service is the inspection that occurs simultaneously. Your technician will not only clean your system and get it running smoothly again, but they will also check over critical components for any wear and tear that could signal an imminent major breakdown. In some instances these repairs are simple and can even be performed as part of the maintenance, which stops the problem before it becomes major, saving you the time and substantial costs associated with a major air conditioning repair.
When an HVAC system is consistently brought back to peak performance and suffers fewer major breakdowns requiring serious repairs, it will last far longer. Replacing a heater or air conditioner is a tremendous expense, and as such many homeowners want to avoid it as long as possible. By having your system cleaned and checked regularly (at least once per year) you can avoid having to replace your system for many additional years, which will save you a lot money in the long run with fewer replacements over the life of your home.
At Cold Factor Heating & Air Services, LLC, we strongly advise having your HVAC system maintained at least twice per year: once before the heat of summer forces you to fire up your air conditioner, and another in the fall before the harsh cold of winter causes you to power up your furnace. Our highly-trained and knowledgeable experts fully believe honest, trustworthy repairs and high-quality products are the key to your satisfaction, and we strive to provide both of them at a price you can afford. We service all major brands of heaters and air conditioners, including the latest and greatest in smart home and energy-efficient technology.
