Preventive HVAC Maintenance: A Beneficial InvestmentBoth the humid summers and chilly winters of the Indianapolis area place a lot of wear and tear on your heating and cooling system. Preventive HVAC maintenance can catch issues early to keep your system in top condition.

Lower Heating and Cooling Bills

Minor issues that don’t cause an obvious drop in your system’s performance can nonetheless reduce its energy efficiency. Loose wires, the wrong motor voltage, grime in the furnace’s combustion chamber, and dust on the A/C evaporator coil all impede your system’s efficiency. During a preventive HVAC maintenance inspection, your HVAC technician will clean the system and correct minor problems so the system can reach its maximum potential efficiency, use less energy, and cost you less to operate.

Less Spent on Repairs and Replacements

A maintenance inspection catches any emerging problems with your system’s components while those problems are still small and inexpensive to correct. You’ll not only save money, but you’ll also gain the peace of mind of knowing your system won’t suddenly break down during a winter storm or summer heat wave. Annual professional maintenance also keeps your system’s warranties valid.

Maintaining the individual components lengthens the life of the system as a whole. Dirt and minor malfunctions place a strain on your system that can cause it to fail completely. With proper care, your furnace can run efficiently for 15 years or longer. You’ll gain as much benefit from your HVAC equipment investment as possible. Neglect maintenance, though, and the furnace could break down in just 10 years, meaning you’ll end up spending on a new furnace long before you should have to.

Cleaner Indoor Air

Air contaminants, such as dust, pollen, and mold spores, can build up inside your system and eventually start to recirculate in your air. While a good air filter mitigates this problem, it doesn’t solve it completely. Having your system thoroughly cleaned by a professional removes the contaminants, protecting your system from damage and improving your indoor air quality.
