Maintaining your AC system – benefits you need to know
Whether you use central air or a ductless mini-split AC system to keep your home comfortable during the summer months, it’s important to ensure that it is properly maintained. Here are some of the more obvious reasons why:
- It keeps your system running at peak efficiency to help reduce home cooling bills and save on annual energy costs.
- Regular preventative maintenance helps prevent any potentially costly breakdowns and repairs before they occur.
- Extends the life of your AC system by ensuring that all filters are cleaned, and vital parts are running optimally.
But there is another benefit to keeping your AC system properly maintained which you may not have thought about – indoor air quality.
This benefit may not be easy to see but it can be very easy to feel, particularly if you suffer from allergies You might not know this, but the air inside in your home can be four to five times more polluted than the air outside your home. With that kind of exposure to allergens and other pollutants, you’re much more likely to get sick – or just feel lousy – during the summer months.
By getting a professional annual AC tune-up and service, along with smaller personal tasks, such as swapping your air filters every month and cleaning air vent gratings, you can help lower the allergens in your home, improve indoor air flow and keep humidity in check.
