If you’re like most Americans, you’re probably thinking about doing some spring cleaning around your home. Whether you’re purging old, worn-out clothing from your closet or you’re beginning to clean out your storage shed in preparation for summer cookouts, it’s refreshing to take charge of your home. Though we’re still experiencing cold days on occasion, there’s no doubt about it — the weather is beginning to grow warmer, and soon enough you’ll be turning off your heater and switching to air conditioning. HVAC maintenance is one of the most important elements of spring cleaning, though it’s often easy to forget about when you’re excited for the activities the spring and summer bring. In today’s post, we’ll explain why you should call Pure Air Solutions for heating and cooling maintenance this spring.

Many people purchase a new HVAC system and believe that it will be fine without maintenance for several years — why pay for maintenance if nothing is obviously broken? What people often fail to realize is that your HVAC system works hard throughout the year to keep your home at a stable and comfortable temperature, and this leads to the system’s components wearing down over time. Worn-down components have to work much harder than new ones to adequately heat and cool your home, and severely degraded components lead to catastrophic and unexpected HVAC breakdowns. Investing in regular maintenance for your HVAC system will ensure that all of its components are in great condition, greatly increasing the odds that you won’t have to endure a hot July day without air conditioning!
As we mentioned above, it’s easy to delay HVAC maintenance when nothing is seriously wrong with your system. However, the fact that your system is working does not mean that it’s working as efficiently as it could. You use your heating and cooling system every day, and it’s often difficult, if not impossible, to notice incremental and slow declines in performance. Unless you regularly look at your heating and cooling bills as the years go on, you probably won’t notice that your system is becoming less efficient as time goes on. When your HVAC system is working at at a suboptimal rate, you’re paying more each month for inferior heating and cooling throughout your home. Investing in HVAC maintenance will not only prolong the life of your system, but it will also help you keep more money in your bank account each month when you receive your energy bill.
Though Colorado’s climate is notoriously dry in the summer, it’s important to ensure that our summer rain storms don’t lead to mold growth in your ventilation system. Mold can be incredibly harmful to those susceptible to allergies and asthma, and it often causes flu-like symptoms in people of all ages. HVAC maintenance provides you with the opportunity to discover and address any mold or mildew that may be growing in your vents, keeping you and your family safe and healthy.
Even if your home has no mold or mildew, your indoor air quality will be significantly increased when you invest in HVAC maintenance. Your system’s filter should be changed every three or four months, but many people forget to change it even once a year. You’ll be amazed at the quality of the air produced by an HVAC system with a fresh filter!
You can think of your HVAC system in exactly the same way you think about your car — an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure (or in this case, a large sum of money!). There’s almost nothing worse than walking through the door to discover that your air conditioner has stopped working, and scheduling regular HVAC maintenance will greatly reduce the chance of your system suddenly failing. While unexpected HVAC failures can be frustrating, they’re also expensive. It can take up to several weeks to order specialty parts, and in severe cases, an entirely new system may need to be installed.
These are just a few of the reasons why you should be investing in HVAC maintenance. Stay tuned for future posts in which we’ll continue to explain the importance of maintenance for your HVAC system.
