How Regular HVAC Maintenance Can Help You

By All-Temp Heating & Cooling

Date Published: December 14, 2018

Outside of the workplace, many of us spend the bulk of our time in our homes, and the upcoming holidays are a good reminder of how some of our best moments and memories are created there with family and friends. But often times people forget about maintaining the systems within the walls that keep us cozy in chilly weather and comfortable in the heat of summer. Unlike chipped paint in the hallway or a torn pillow cover on the couch, the signs that your HVAC system needs repair are usually not obvious until it’s too late and time for a complete replacement of a part, or the entire unit. Of course, these problems tend to appear during the most inconvenient times – like in the middle of Thanksgiving dinner when it’s 35 degrees outside! Here are some tips about HVAC maintenance and why it’s so important.

Why is HVAC Maintenance Important?

Do you recall the last oil change or tire rotation for your car? For most people, this is fairly easy to remember, even without help from the little maintenance sticker on the windshield. While we spend a fair amount of time driving around town or to and from work or school, we spend even more time at home.

Now, can you remember the last time your HVAC system received maintenance or repairs? If you do, it’s likely because it was a costly affair or it came at an inconvenient time for the household. You wouldn’t drive your car until it completely broke down and needed to be replaced, so why do that to your HVAC system? Your HVAC system likely needs a check-up only once or twice a year, depending on use.

Regular HVAC maintenance provides the following benefits:

  • Promotes system efficiency
  • Can save you money on your heating/cooling bills
  • Allows you to find and fix issues before they get worse
  • Reduces the chances of a complete system breakdown
  • Lengthens the lifespan of your system

HVAC Means More Than Just Hot and Cold

Many homeowners might associate their HVAC system with just their heating and air conditioning. They tend to forget about the other important aspects, such as ventilation, air quality, and energy efficiency, that are tied in with the system. When our experienced and certified team at All-Temp performs regular maintenance on an HVAC system, we consider all of these factors.

While inspecting the functionality of your heater and air conditioner, our technicians also consider energy efficiency. We check the ducts for sealing and cleanliness and look for other areas of opportunity to save energy, such as insulation, weatherization and equipment upgrades. Complete energy efficiency audits can be done as part of our customizable HVAC maintenance package and can help you save money on your utility bill.

Let’s not forget that the “V” in HVAC stands for ventilation and is a crucial part of your home’s air quality. Dirty skylines of cities or factories might come to mind when you generally think about air quality, but poor air quality can happen inside your home as well. In fact, it can be even harder to recognize because there is no muggy layer of visibly dirty air floating between the living room and the kitchen.

Dirty ducts and air filters can create a build-up of contaminants that then get pushed to every room in your home and wreak havoc on your family, especially those with conditions such as allergies or asthma. This build-up can also cause your entire system to run less efficiently, meaning a more costly energy bill. Moisture levels in the air can also create harmful airborne toxins, reducing your in-home air quality.

Avoid Early HVAC System Replacement with Routine Maintenance

At All-Temp, we provide customizable annual or semi-annual maintenance packages for your HVAC system, and we take into consideration the size of your home and your budget when making recommendations for any repairs or installations. Our utmost concern is keeping your household comfortable and safe from the weather outside and unhealthy indoor air quality, and we even help you prepare for fluctuating temperatures each season. Regular maintenance can help your HVAC system perform better for longer and can help you avoid costly, last-minute or emergency replacements. If your system does require a repair or replacement, our experts are trained to work with nearly every make and model of HVAC equipment, and are ready to go the extra mile for you!

Don’t get stuck out in the cold this season!

I had All Temp install a cooling system in my home. I used All Temp because when I asked my friends who they recommended they said All Temp. I found them to be very knowledgeable about their systems and every time they have come (for installation & maintenance) they are courteous, respectful and caring. They come when they say they will or they will let you know ahead of time that they have to reschedule. I’m glad I chose All Temp

We had our heat randomly go out one day in the middle of the night & called all temp to see if they could come out & see what was going on. They came out very quickly to see to the issue & although the visit led to the unfortunate news of system replacement, im so glad we went with all temp. They got us on the schedule ASAP to get our new system put in. We dealt with Dylan for our initial visit & he was super informative & kind. Thomas & Sebastian were the ones who installed & did the work on our home & they were so lovely and respectful of our space. Even with working around two young curious children!! Forrest oversaw the project for the most part & came to make sure everything was satisfactory and working after install and he was also so kind & respectful and just an overall lovely and professional company to deal with! I’d recommend anyone in the valley to call these guys if you’re having HVAC issues. Thank you guys SO much again for such a lovely experience! :)
