Benefits Of Annual HVAC Maintenance

Sponsored Content provided by Jimmy Williams - Owner, O’Brien Service Company

Just as a tune-up for your car can improve your gas mileage, a yearly tune-up of your heating and cooling system can improve efficiency and comfort.  -EnergyStar

Your heating and air system runs almost every day of the year to keep your home comfortable. It is recommended that you have your system serviced at least once a year to ensure it is operating efficiently. 

There are many benefits of annual maintenance for your HVAC system, but here are three major ones to keep in mind:

Drain line cleaning

During a maintenance call our technician will thoroughly clear and clean your drain line. Why is this one of the major benefits of annual maintenance?

If your drain line gets clogged, one of two things can occur, depending on your system. Systems with an installed float switch will shut down when the water reaches a high enough level. That isn’t a huge worry, but if it happens in the middle of the summer, you don’t want to be without AC and waiting for someone to fix it. 

If you do not have a float switch or it is not working properly, your clogged drain line could cause a water leak. Some leaks are minor, but if they go unnoticed, they may cause expensive damage. 

You can reduce the risk of a backed-up drain line by having it cleared during an annual maintenance service.

Coil cleaning

Another benefit of annual maintenance is clean coils. Throughout the year dust and debris will collect on those coils, and the buildup will reduce airflow and efficiency. Having your coils cleaned once a year will remove that buildup and keep your system running efficiently.


Overall check

The final major benefit of annual maintenance on your heating and cooling system is a professional will perform a detailed inspection.

A technician may find a minor problem during your maintenance that could have caused major issues down the road. Also, by having the components of the system checked, you can be confident your system is running at its best.           

There are many other benefits of annual maintenance, such as keeping warranties valid and helping to extend the lifespan of the system. If it has been a while since your system has been serviced, be sure to call and schedule yours today. 

You rely on your HVAC system for a comfortable home, so make sure you take care of it!
