The blistering summers and cool winters of Nevada can be very hard on HVAC systems and equipment, as such it is important that your HVAC system has its annual inspection and maintenance. It’s usually a good idea to get these checkups completed in the early fall while the temperatures are stable and the rains have yet to properly set in. Completing these yearly maintenance checks has many benefits.
5 Reasons to Never Skip Your Yearly HVAC Checkup
There are dozens of reasons that you should not skip your yearly HVAC maintenance checkups, and many benefits to undertaking regular maintenance, but these are the most important reasons of all:
1) Avoid Breakdowns
Having regular maintenance checks is one of the most efficient ways to ensure that your HVAC system does not break down unexpectedly. Preventable breakdowns can be the most frustrating to deal with precisely because they are avoidable. The cost of repairing a breakdown can vary, but whether the cause is big or small, there’s nothing quite as uncomfortable as dealing with an HVAC system breakdown during a Las Vegas summer. Of course, no amount of maintenance will prevent you from ever having a breakdown, but it will help you to avoid preventable issues.
2) Protect Your Warranty
Your manufacturer’s warranty covers the replacement and repair of your system should something break or fail, saving your hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars when a breakdown happens. However, most warranties are only valid when you take care of your system. If you fail to complete regular maintenance, this will be counted as neglect which can render your warranty null and void.
3) Extend the Lifespan of Your HVAC
Keeping all parts of your HVAC system clean and regularly maintained will extend the lifespan of your system. The average HVAC system in Nevada will last for anywhere from 10 to 15 years depending on how you care for it. Regular maintenance can increase the lifespan of your system by years.
4) Improve Energy Efficiency
A clean, well-maintained system which is in good repair will not only be less likely to break down, it will be more efficient. This means that your HVAC system will not have to work quite so hard to cool or heat your home. As a result, your home will be more comfortable, but you will also notice a drop in your electricity bills.
5) Prevent Damage to Other Home Components
Ensuring that your system is fully functioning and in good repair, will prevent excess strain on other components and systems in your home. For example, a thorough annual maintenance check will highlight any issues which are at risk of snowballing, both within and outwith your HVAC system.
Of course, there are many other reasons to schedule annual HVAC maintenance, but these 5 are some of the best. If you take care of your heating and air conditioning systems, they will take care of you and keep your home environment comfortable for many years to come! So, remember to schedule your yearly checkup before the weather takes a turn!
