With the change of seasons almost upon us, it’s always a good idea to reflect on the reasons we do yearly maintenance on our HVAC units and why your home comfort system matters to each individual as well as your family as a whole. Keep your HVAC maintenance on a strict schedule to avoid system malfunction and home discomfort.
Importance of Home Comfort
Here are some reasons why it is vital to think about home comfort when it comes to your HVAC system, and how each element of your HVAC system contributes to home comfort:
Keep up with HVAC Maintenance
Have you ever tried to fall asleep in a house that was too hot? What about too cold in the winter time? Neither will result in a comfortable night’s rest that we require to get through our busy days. That is why it is important to have your home comfort in mind when it comes to maintenance for your HVAC system. If you adhere to a regular maintenance routine, your unit will always be operating at it’s optimal level. No dirt clogging the filters means your home’s air quality is safe and comfortable for you and your family.
Regularly Replace Air Filters
If you have allergies, it is even more imperative to stick to routinely change your air filters. The level of allergens that infiltrate your home and end up in the HVAC unit’s air filters is alarming. If you don’t change the filters, the allergens build up and end up staying inside your house for you to breath in day in and day out. Much like the filter, the dust and allergens will begin to clog up your airways and drastically reduce your home comfort. The quality of the air in your home is very important. This is especially the case if you have young pets or children. Their respiratory systems are more susceptible to allergens and this is of course amplified if there are any allergy sufferers in the home.
Monitor and Control Humidity
Finally, take into consideration that your HVAC unit plays a large role in the level of humidity in your home. If the humidity level in your house is too high, you leave your home open to the possibility of mold and mildew. With higher humidity you are also more inclined to experience allergy flare ups and more likely to experience more or worsening respiratory infections. Something no one wants, especially when it is so easy to prevent something like that from happening by simply changing the filters in your unit.
Aside from the financial and energy saving reasons to properly maintain your HVAC unit, there are a plethora of home comfort reasons to keep up with your system’s maintenance.
Trust us, the repercussions of a faulty HVAC system far outweigh any inconveniences of regularly maintaining your unit. Time. Money. Logistics. It doesn’t matter, because the hit to your energy efficiency, the damage to your unit and the poor air quality that you and your family will be forced to endure, matters more than anything.
