6 Benefits of Routine HVAC Maintenance

Posted by Howell's Heating & Air on August 18, 2017

If you own a home with a heating and cooling system in Richmond, Virginia, you've likely thought about at least one of these HVAC issues:

Best HVAC Tune Up in Richmond, VA

We know how tough finding a solution to these HVAC issues can be. But fortunately, Howell's has already solved all these issues for thousands of Richmond customers with their 32-point precision tune up and safety check.

Your heating and cooling system is probably the most expensive equipment in your home. Plus, it is responsible for keeping the temperature constant. It also supplies your home "air exchanges" to keep the air fresh, moving, and healthy.

Spare yourself the headache of having to schedule AC repair for your Richmond home in the middle of the summer or look for a reliable HVAC service and repair provider in Ashland once things have already escalated. After all, your heating and cooling system is required to perform all its functions simultaneously. Winter and Summer. Night and day. Automatically. All year long.

So how do you keep the system in good working order? Regular HVAC maintenance performed by Richmond's in-demand experts of course. 

So, here's what you can expect from a properly tuned heating and cooling system by one of our 'champion' Howell's service technicians:

1. Reduced Heating & Cooling Costs

Right out of the gate, a properly maintained heating and cooling system will save you money. One maintenance visit will likely pay for itself in energy savings. Removing dirt and checking proper refrigerant charge will get your system back to manufacturer's specifications.

2. Improved Energy Efficiency

Your system "eats" energy every time it cuts on - roughly 6 times per hour in mid Summer. An under-performing system can cut on as many as 8-10 times. Ouch!

3. Add Years to Equipment Life

Dirt is the #1 cause of system failure. Dennis, one of our "champion" technicians for the last 25 years, has said that he has seen too many compressors die to the fact that the indoor coil was blocked up with dirt. If you want your system around for when you really need it, or are trying to "squeeze" an extra year or two out of it, then get rid of that dirt!

4. Keep You and Your Loved Ones Safe

I don't want to scare you, but an un-maintained fossil fuel burning furnace can be deadly. Each year we read about carbon monoxide fatalities due to unserviced, or poorly serviced, systems.

5. Improvement of Indoor Air Quality

Clean Breathing.jpgNow your system just moves the air throughout the house, right? In part, your filter is responsible for removing the allergens or particulate out of the air stream. However, one important factor can affect Indoor Air Quality, and that is your duct system.

Most duct systems we find have about 20-30% leakage. If your duct system is located in a damp, musty crawlspace, or in a hot, humid, and dusty attic, then your duct system is pulling air from those areas into your system, into your home, and bypassing your filter.

6. The Gift of Foresight to Future HVAC Problems

It is not by chance that we have given the name Comfort Club to our maintenance contract. Our regularly scheduled HVAC tune-ups help catch problems before your system breaks down, which will help you stay comfortable all Summer & Winter long!

The Importance of Regular HVAC Tune Ups

A small problem left undetected or uncorrected can domino into bigger, more costly problems down the road. Without regular maintenance visits, it's easy for HVAC issues to go unnoticed and unresolved.

Let us tune your heating and cooling system. An HVAC Tune up can clean your air, save you on energy, and put comfort back in your personal or business environment, all while saving your system (and bank account) from early replacement.
