3 reasons for preventative maintenance on an HVAC system in Dallas, TX

At Caldwell Mechanical Services, we understand that most of us don’t like to have maintenance done on things like our cars or HVAC systems. Even when we understand the importance of maintenance, it’s not something we want to pay for or take the time to do. However, like getting regular maintenance on your vehicle, preventative maintenance for your HVAC system in Dallas, TX is crucial to ensure it continues to work properly.

Prevent costly repairs

Like anything else that’s mechanical or has moving parts, it can eventually wear out and break down. It’s critical to keep your HVAC system well-oiled and to run as close to peak performance as possible. Worn-out parts that are poorly lubricated will make the system have to work harder than what is normal. Putting your system through excessive wear and tear will use more energy and put pressure on other parts. Some of these parts could break under the added pressure of taking on the extra work, which could lead to repairs that cost hundreds to thousands of dollars more than performing maintenance.

Improve air quality

The quality of the air in your home depends on the state of your HVAC system. Proper maintenance of your system includes regularly changing your air filters. Your filters clean air as it flows throughout your home and can greatly impact how healthy your family stays. Your air filters will help to clean out allergens like dust particles and pollens, as well as bacteria or viruses that will make you sick. Those who live in your home with allergies or asthma will be able to stay healthier from day to day as the air they’re breathing isn’t going to cause nearly as many problems for them.

Keeps your home safe

It’s normal to want to turn your HVAC system down or off when you go on vacation. After all, you’re not going to be there to enjoy the heater, so it might feel unnecessary to pay to run the system. Although, maintaining a minimum temperature in your home will help to ensure it stays safe. Either turning off your heater or running it at a low temperature during the winter could cause the temperature of your water pipes to drop to dangerous levels and freeze. Water in frozen pipes will expand and can burst, which can flood your basement or crawl space and cause significant and costly damage.

Bonus: improved energy efficiency

An HVAC system that runs at peak performance will save you money in energy bills. The ability of your system to have moving parts that move uninhibited will operate with better energy efficiency than one that’s bogged down by dirt, dust, grime, or parts that haven’t been properly oiled recently. After performing maintenance, you’ll immediately notice that your system runs much more efficiently and doesn’t run as often.
