Would you skip your car’s oil change year after year? Would you skip your tire rotations? You may put these off, but there is no question that you would not skip them altogether. The concept is the same with your HVAC system: Skipping maintenance can result in serious consequences. Read on to find out how HVAC maintenance can make a big difference. Then contact Econo West Heating Air & Plumbing at (661) 947-2653 to make an appointment.
Lower Your Utility Bills
There are many potential issues with your HVAC system that could be driving your utility bills up, and that can be easily fixed during a maintenance appointment. For example, if you have a clogged air filter, dirty ducts, leaks in your ducts, or a thermostat that isn’t working correctly, any of these issues can increase your utility bills.
Improve the Indoor Air Quality in Your Home
If you have dirty ducts, then you could bet that your home’s air quality is not as good as it could be. When your ducts are dirty, contaminants can be spread throughout your home. The same is true of a dirty air filter – it can spread dirt, pet dander, dust, and other pollutants. When you reduce these issues with HVAC maintenance, you can prevent that dust and dirt from collecting on your furniture and floors as well.
If you are not sure if your ducts are dirty, try removing one of your air registers. Do you see dirt or debris? If you do, that is just the surface – the inside of your ducts is likely much worse and requires professional cleaning.
Get Rid of Bad Smells
When you have dirty ducts, you also likely have a stinky home. You may not notice it due to what’s known as olfactory fatigue. In short, this means that you smell your home so often that your brain has stopped registering the smell. This is why you will notice the way your home smells when you come home from a trip or have otherwise been away for a period of time.
Reduce Allergy and Asthma Symptoms
If anyone in your household has allergies or asthma, air duct cleaning is a must. It can put an end to irritants that cause sore throats, irritated eyes, rashes, and nosebleeds. When we come out for our appointment, let us know that you have an allergy / asthma sufferer in your home and we can discuss additional steps we can take.
