It may only be February, but it is never too soon to start thinking about HVAC maintenance! Summer will be here before you know it, so now is the perfect time to book an appointment.
Proper maintenance of your heating and cooling systems can actually save you money! How? When you take the time to do your routine service checks, you can avoid costly repairs that could cripple your finances down the road. Not only can the units malfunction and cause costly repairs to the system itself; when not maintained properly, you could experience water damage or even face the risk of an electrical fire! By scheduling routine services, you can help to prevent these costly outcomes.
If you are looking for a way to make your home a little more energy-efficient, look no further than maintaining your HVAC system! When your system is outdated or neglected (especially your air filters), you will find that it is working a lot harder than it needs to be, draining energy faster than necessary.
Some indicators that your system is overdue for maintenance and isn’t working efficiently include:
- Not blowing cold air when switched to AC
- Excess humidity in your home
- A foul or musty odor
- Distractingly audible while operating
- High energy costs
Along with the benefit of seeing the decrease in your energy bill, you can also take pride in knowing that your choices also benefit the world around you! Embracing the push for smaller environmental footprints, Idaho Power’s green initiative offers a heating and cooling efficiency program, including an opportunity to earn a $5 monthly credit on your summer energy bills.
Protect Your Health
Not only is maintaining your HVAC system better for your wallet and the environment; it also is better for your health! When you don’t keep up to date with routine service checks, you run the risk of dust, mold, and other contaminants building in your system. Health concerns that can be linked back to less maintained HVAC units include:
- Eye irritation
- Fatigue/difficulty concentrating
- Upper respiratory symptoms
- Skin irritation
When left unattended, some of these symptoms could even exacerbate cardiovascular issues or even lead to hospitalization. By getting your routine services done, you can protect yourself and your loved ones from the discomfort of these chronic issues related to the air you breathe daily.
Whether you just want to ensure proper functionality of your AC in summer and your heat in winter, are looking for a way to save a little extra every month, or want the peace of mind knowing your actions contribute to the health of your family, there are many reasons to keep up with your heating and cooling system.
