Ideally speaking, your HVAC system must be inspected by a professional contractor before summer begins if you want to avoid a breakdown. The Myrtle Beach weather will surely make you feel miserable without air conditioning during hotter days or heating during cooler days. A house that is too hot or too cold is dangerous for everybody especially for seniors, chronically ill individuals, and kids too. For example, too much heat could lead to high body temperature, heat exhaustion, or even death. Regular HVAC maintenance will make your system much more efficient and can help prevent costlier issues and improves your air quality indoors.
Higher HVAC Efficiency
Air conditioning maintenance could help take care of any issues that may affect cooling efficiency and increase your utility bills. Low efficiency will also force your system to work much harder, which tends to shorter its life span. Hire an HVAC contractor who will check ductwork for leaks and inspect the air filter at least once every month for the best air flow. You also need to keep the grass clippings, as well as other debris away from the HVAC units outdoors.
Moving parts break while belts crack over time. Other components could also require additional lubrication to make sure that they continue working. Filthy coils and low refrigerant levels could lead to frost or ice on your air conditioning unit, which will keep it from cooling appropriately and may result in major damage. A reliable HVAC contractor could locate and fix these issues before they worsen and force you to change your Myrtle Beach HVAC unit with a new one.
Improved Indoor Air Quality
High humidity during the summer season is the time when mold grows in the ductwork, coils, as well as condensate pan. Mold has a musty odor and it can trigger or worsen allergies as well as asthma. It could even result in flu like symptoms. Pollen, dirt, dust, and other similar contaminants could accumulate in your unit and distributed throughout your home. An HVAC contractor will tell you in case you need to have your ductworks repaired or any other areas of your HVAC unit cleaned as part of its routine maintenance.
