The Benefits of Air Conditioning Preventative Maintenance

Air conditioners are a vital part of daily life for those living in the Grand Strand area. Unfortunately, homeowners often overlook the importance of air conditioning preventative maintenance for their HVAC units. This is really a shame since your heating and air conditioning system has a huge impact on your overall health, safety and well-being. Thankfully, implementing air conditioning preventative maintenance will provide a wide array of benefits to your home and your health.

Air Conditioning Preventative Maintenance Benefits

  • Improved Indoor Air Quality
  • Increased Energy Efficiency
  • Lower Energy Bills
  • Reduction in Emergency Repairs
  • Prolong the Life of the HVAC System
  • Increased Safety

Improved Indoor Air Quality

Air conditioning preventative maintenance can help improve your indoor air quality, helping you stay healthier.

Air conditioning preventative maintenance will increase the overall quality of your home’s indoor air quality. This is important since poor air quality can aggravate respiratory conditions, such as allergies and asthma, and cause those breathing the air in to experience headache, fatigue and nausea.

Increased Energy Efficiency

When your air conditioner is serviced regularly by a trusted HVAC technician, the unit will run at maximum efficiency, and when this occurs you will begin to notice a decrease in your energy bills. Furthermore, when you use less energy, you reduce your carbon footprint, which is better for the environment.

Reduction in Emergency Repairs and Increase Safety

An air conditioning unit that is properly maintained will reduce the chance of unexpected and emergency repairs. Furthermore, regular checkups and preventive maintenance can help prevent a dangerous situation that could occur because the unit wasn’t properly cared for.

Prolong the Life of the Unit

Air conditioners need regular maintenance to ensure it lasts for as long as possible. The truth is, a neglected AC doesn’t last as long as one that has received the proper care that it needs. Having the unit inspected at least once a year will go a long way to increase the life of the unit.

Indoor Air Quality Facts

According to the US Environmental Protection Agency, the pollutant levels inside your home could be five times greater than the pollutant levels outside. Combine this with the fact that we spend almost 90 percent of our time indoors and it should come as no surprise that almost everyone is going to struggle with respiratory problems at some point in their life. Fortunately, a few home upgrades and lifestyle changes could help you remove up to 99 percent of airborne contaminants and significantly improve the indoor air quality in your house.

Poor Indoor Air Quality May Be Making You Sick

Indoor Air Quality Contaminants

The health issues related to the poor indoor air quality are very similar to the ones observed in people suffering from asthma, allergies, or common cold. Your family members might wake up every morning with a sore throat or feeling groggy. Many people will also struggle with runny noses, itchy eyes and chronic headaches which become more prevalent at certain times of the year.

For families who live in humid climates, such as here in the Myrtle Beach area, mold spores can be a major problem. This living organism will often thrive in ducts, bathrooms, and kitchens. Volatile organic compounds are another major issue for many homeowners. These compounds can be found in a wide variety of everyday products and will increase the risk of respiratory issues ranging from asthma to certain forms of cancer. If you happen to schedule regular appointments with an exterminator you should ask them about what kinds of pesticides and chemicals they will be using.

Improving Your Indoor Air Quality

Your heating and cooling systems are your first line of defense against outdoor contaminants, which is why it is so important to invest in high-quality air filters as well as have your HVAC systems serviced at least twice a year. Homeowners should also take some time to research any new products they are bringing into their home. This is especially important for cleaning supplies which can release VOCs, formaldehyde and other unhealthy toxins into the air.
