Why You Should Schedule Regular HVAC Maintenance

Imagine your air conditioner breaking on the hottest day of the summer, or your heater quitting during a below 0⁰ ice storm. You can always call your friends at B & W Heating and Cooling for emergency service, but wouldn’t it be better if that situation didn’t happen at all? The following are some of the benefits to scheduling regular HVAC maintenance with B & W.

Prolongs the life of your HVAC: Ignoring a problem will only make it worse over time. Cracks, leaks, and corrosion do not improve on their own. Regular HVAC maintenance alerts our technicians to repair any problems before they become an issue that could cause your heating or cooling system to break down completely and require replacement. As with any other equipment or machine, routine tune-ups will extend the life of your furnace or air conditioner.

Helps your HVAC run better: Ensuring that your HVAC is clean, damage-free, and that all its components are working properly will help it run at optimal condition. When your furnace or AC runs efficiently, it is more likely to handle extreme outdoor temperatures, as opposed to an HVAC in need of repairs that will have to work harder to keep up with unusually hot or cold weather. We have found that routine tune-ups can boost HVAC efficiency by up to 25%!

Saves you money: When we regularly inspect your HVAC, we can catch small issues and repair them before they turn into major problems that can cause your system to break down. It will cost much more for major repairs or, if the malfunction is irreparably severe, a replacement of your HVAC than the expense of regular tune-ups. Additionally, an HVAC without issues runs more efficiently; if it does not have to work as hard to heat or cool your home, it will run less often, which saves money on your utility bill.

Reduces allergens: Part of your tune-up service includes thoroughly cleaning your heating and cooling systems and changing dirty air filters. When your system is clean, the air blowing through your vents is cleaner. Breathing clean air is better for everyone, but especially for those who suffer from allergies, asthma, or other respiration issues.

Ways You Can Increase Efficiency in Your Edwardsville IL Home

professional tune-up for your HVAC Edwardsville Illinois

HVAC maintenance does not have to stop with the professionals. There are ways that you can increase energy efficiency in your home to remove some of the burden from your heating and cooling system, which will help keep it running more efficiently for longer. On hot summer days, keep your curtains or blinds drawn to reduce heat entering your home, and run ceiling fans to help circulate the cool air. Keep doors to infrequently used rooms closed to allow more warm or cool air from your vents to maintain a comfortable temperature in common areas. Make sure that your vents are unobstructed to allow air conditioning or heat to flow into the rooms.

One of the most important HVAC maintenance tasks for homeowners is to change the air filters regularly – don’t wait until your scheduled service to replace them. This helps your system run better and it will keep the air flowing through your vents cleaner. Lastly, try to avoid changing your thermostat too often or to extremely high or low temperatures in attempt to quickly heat or cool your house. HVACs do not handle drastic changes in temperature well and are meant to maintain consistent temperatures for comfort.
