Why Does My HVAC System Need Regular Maintenance?

You rely on your HVAC system to keep your Dauphin County home comfortable. It helps you keep your family happy and healthy all year round. However, while your HVAC system helps you take care of your family, you also have to take care of your HVAC system. 

You need to keep up with monthly and yearly maintenance to keep it running efficiently. Keeping up with maintenance will provide you with a variety of benefits while neglecting maintenance can cause more issues. Read on to learn more,  then contact MT Heating and Cooling in Johnstown, PA to schedule maintenance. 

How Maintenance Benefits Your Home and HVAC System

There are many benefits to gain when you schedule maintenance with MT Heating and Cooling in Dauphin County, Pennsylvania. Here are just three of the main ones. 

Efficiency – Once MT Heating and Cooling cleans your HVAC system, you will notice improved efficiency. This is because there is little to no debris blocking the airflow. This means more conditioned air makes it into your Johnstown home, and your system does not run as long. Then you save energy and money too. 

Air Quality – A cleaner system, also means cleaner air and more thorough the distribution of that air. When the air is cleaner, your family can breathe easier. Additionally, when the air is spread more thoroughly, your family will be more comfortable. You won’t end up with hot or cold spots throughout your home as easily.  

Extended Life Expectancy – When your system is properly maintained by MT Heating and Cooling and consistently runs efficiently, then it will likely last longer. This means you save even more over time. 

What Happens If Your System Doesn’t Receive Maintenance

If you neglect to provide maintenance for your HVAC system, the consequences are pretty much the opposite of the benefits above. 

Airflow Issues – When your filter, air ducts, or unit is dirty, the debris blocks the airflow. You end up wasting energy as some of the conditioned air your HVAC produces, will never even make it into your Johnstown home for your family to enjoy. As mentioned before, your system will try to compensate by staying on longer and costing you more. 

Expensive Repairs – If any of the sensitive parts of your HVAC system are exposed to dirt and debris, they can become damaged. The damage may be minimal at first, but if left unchecked, it can turn into expensive repairs. This is why maintenance is so important. It allows you to catch small issues before they turn into major problems. 

Breakdowns – When too many parts of your HVAC system become damaged, you will experience a total system breakdown. This can be extremely frustrating if it is during midsummer or midwinter. While MT Heating and Cooling will help you get your system repaired as soon as possible, it is better to take measures to avoid these issues in the first place.
