The Importance of Annual Air Conditioner & Furnace Maintenance
In Edwardsville, Illinois, where summers are sweltering and winters are frigid, we rely on our HVAC systems to keep us comfortable season after season. Annual maintenance on your furnace and air conditioner is essential for keeping your system running optimally. Here are some reasons why furnace and air conditioner maintenance is important.
The most significant benefit to regular air conditioner and furnace maintenance is that your HVAC system will last longer. In most cases, the average lifespan is 10-15 years for an air conditioner and 16-20 years for a furnace. However, some homeowners find that their air conditioners can last up to 20 years and their furnaces can last 30 years or more with regular maintenance. A lack of annual maintenance, on the other hand, can result in a shorter life expectancy for your system.
When you invest in your HVAC system, you are investing in the comfort of your home. With preventative care, you can expect your system to run better and keep your home more comfortable year-round.
Lower Utility Bills
An HVAC system that receives regular annual maintenance performs better. The more efficient it is, the lower your energy bills will be.
Fewer High-Cost Repairs
In most cases, HVAC systems that receive annual maintenance do not break down as often as systems that are poorly maintained. Annual maintenance gives your trusted technician the ability to replace worn-out parts before extensive damage to your system results and an expensive repair is necessary.
Peace of Mind
Breakdowns are more common when an HVAC system has to work extra hard, such as when it’s very hot or freezing outside. Unfortunately, these periods are when you’re most reliant on your air conditioner or furnace to keep your home comfortable. With regular maintenance, you can be confident that your system will remain running when you need it most.
