Yearly Mechanical Maintenance

by | May 6, 2024

Have you been thinking about how long it’s been since you have had your heating or
cooling units cleaned and serviced? Most people don’t realize the importance or benefits
of having yearly maintenance done on their HVAC equipment. Let’s face it — life is busy and
hectic as it is, and most people aren’t thinking about their HVAC system when everything is
working or seems to be working as it should. In this article I’m going to give you some
really important ideas to think about as to why you should have yearly maintenance
done on your system.

First, by maintaining and cleaning your air conditioning coils, it allows the equipment to
properly breathe and work the way its designed to. As years go by, your outside air
conditioning unit begins to collect cotton, grass, and other outdoor debris causing
to coil to become plugged and therefore not allowing it to draw the proper air across the
coil to cool your home efficiently. The same effect can happen to your indoor evaporator
coil, located on your air handler by the pollutants inside your home. When the
evaporator coil is plugged with debris, it doesn’t allow air to move across the coil and
bring cool or warm air into your home. By having regular maintenance done both of
these services will be done at least once and hopefully twice a year.

Next is the fact that many times, a technician can find problems while they are minor
and repair them before they become major. By repairing minor problems early, it can
save you hundreds if not thousands down the road. By having minor problems repaired
early, you may also be able to repair those problems while you have a scheduled visit
for maintenance, as we all know, everything breaks at the most inconvenient time,
either on the weekend or a holiday and it takes a lot longer to get service due to limited

Last, by having regular maintenance done on your home’s HVAC system, it can prolong
the life of your system. Studies have shown that maintaining your system improves
efficiency and longevity of the life and quality of your system. I always use the cliche
that you maintain your car because it’s mechanical, therefore you should most definitely
maintain your mechanical system in your home. Most manufacturers won’t honor their
warranties if you cannot show that you have had their equipment maintained. Most units
have at least a five if not ten-year warranty, which also can save you thousands of
dollars if you have a break down.

This summer season, don’t cross your fingers anymore hoping to make it through one
more year with your old un-serviced HVAC equipment. Go ahead and find a great service
company that you trust and have your system cleaned, tuned up, and ready to go, so
that you can have the peace of mind and comfort to know that you can check it off
of your already busy and hectic schedule.
