Island Air Blog: HVAC Maintenance Plans: Why They’re Worth It
It’s almost summer in Gulf Shores, which means the sizzling hot, unbearably humid days are already on the way. Having a cool place to come home to is important, but if you haven’t had preventative HVAC maintenance on your air conditioner, you could be looking at hot and humid indoor conditions as well. Lower your risk of costly and untimely repairs with a preventative maintenance tune-up from Island Air.
Benefits of Our HVAC Maintenance Plan
While there are a few things you can do as a homeowner to improve the efficiency of your HVAC system, having maintenance done by the professionals at Island Air can ensure maximum efficiency and reliable performance. On top of that, regular preventative maintenance helps lessen your risk of costly repairs and extends the life of your air conditioner. Those are only a few of the benefits our HVAC maintenance plans provide.
Preventative maintenance on your air conditioner includes cleaning components of the system that contribute directly to efficiency. With higher energy efficiency, you’ll experience higher comfort levels at lower costs, potentially saving you money right away.
All appliances are subject to wear and tear over time and your air conditioner is no different. Because it’s constantly working to keep your home comfortable, it’s subject to wearing out quicker if not maintained properly. Routine cleaning and inspections will minimize wear and tear and keep your system functioning properly much longer. Our American Standard air conditioners can even last 15 years or longer when maintained by professionals.
During routine HVAC maintenance tune-ups, our professional technicians check for worn out parts or areas of potential failure to prevent issues before they happen. While we may not be able to foresee all future problems, having maintenance performed twice a year can really minimize your risk of costly and untimely system breakdowns.
Dirty ductwork, filters, and condensate drain pans can aggravate allergies, asthma, and other respiratory issues. That’s why, during our HVAC maintenance tune-ups, we inspect and clean these components of your HVAC system. Having a clean system means having a cleaner home, improving your family’s health and overall well being.
Peace of Mind
Last but not least, having your air conditioner routinely inspected and serviced means you can relax. With less risk of system breakdowns, higher efficiency, and prolonged systems life, you’ll have a more comfortable home AND more money in your pocket.
