The Importance of Maintaining Your HVAC System
August 19, 2020
You know how hot it can get during the Arkansas summer and how frigid it is during winter, but what do these seasonal changes mean for your home’s HVAC system? At Mohr Air Conditioning, we specialize in keeping our customers comfortable, and we know exactly what homeowners in eastern Arkansas are missing out on if their AC or Furnace is getting beat. We’re here to tell you how maintaining your air conditioner can boost your seasonal moods.
Keeps your home’s humidity in check.
With inefficient AC, sometimes it’s not the heat; it’s the humidity that you can’t get out of your home. A little known benefit to having a great air conditioner is that it actually reduces moisture in your home. Your home’s humidity should be somewhere between 30-50%. Excessive moisture can cause mold growth and exacerbate health issues among members of the household. Excessive moisture is especially important to consider in the winter as well because the air becomes drier, and you need a little extra humidity indoors to stay comfortable.
Lowers the need for repairs.
With all of the components your HVAC systems requires to work properly, there are many ways extreme weather can take a toll on your system. You know you’re maintaining your air conditioner or furnace properly if you don’t have to think about it as much as you used to. A well-maintained HVAC system requires fewer repairs overall, which saves you money and time in the long run.
Protects your investment.
Similar to the maintenance your car requires to last as long as possible, your HVAC is an investment that is worth protecting. Additionally, a poorly maintained system is likely to need a complete replacement sooner than it should. Your air conditioner and furnace can work hard for your family much longer provided it is regularly maintained.
Increase energy savings.
What’s better than savings on HVAC repairs? You guessed it: more savings. A highly efficient system cools and heats your home faster, using less energy than it would have otherwise. Ensuring each component is in tip top shape means your system can run at peak efficiency. Once it’s easier to keep your home comfortable all year, you’ll notice your energy bill will start to improve.
