The weather is warming up around Plano, TX, and you’re considering all you want to do around your home. As you make your plans, don’t forget about preparing your HVAC system for the summer and reap these benefits.
Lower Energy Bills
There are two primary goals of spring maintenance, make your system run efficiently and catch problems early. When your system is running at peak efficiency, it requires less energy to achieve your desired temperature. Less energy used means less a lower bill from the utility company.
It’s difficult for your system to push cold air out into your home if it cannot circulate that air freely. A technician cleans both the circulating fan and evaporator coil during spring maintenance, solving some of the common restrictions. This allows cooler air to move through your home, providing better comfort as it runs.
One of the questions constantly plaguing the back of your mind is whether your system will survive the hottest weather. HVAC systems tend to break down during extreme heat when they are already strained by a lack of maintenance. When you have your system properly maintained, you prepare your system to better handle the seasonal extremes.
When your system has a part operating less than optimally or cannot circulate air effectively, it increases strain on the entire system. This added strain wears on parts, causing them to fail prematurely, requiring additional AC repair.
Extended Service Life
You want your air conditioner to last for its full intended service life of 10-15 years. However, neglecting regular maintenance shortens the service life you can expect. Likewise, when you keep your system well-maintained, you may see your system last well beyond the average.
