The Importance of Regular HVAC Maintenance: Extending System Lifespan

Why Regular HVAC Maintenance Matters

At American Home Heating & AC, we often emphasize the importance of regular maintenance for your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems. Many homeowners overlook this crucial aspect of home care, but it can significantly impact the longevity and efficiency of your HVAC system.

Key Benefits of Regular Maintenance

1. Extended System Lifespan: Regular check-ups can help identify and address minor issues before they become major problems, potentially adding years to your system’s life.

2. Improved Energy Efficiency: A well-maintained system operates more efficiently, consuming less energy and reducing your utility bills.

3. Better Air Quality: Clean filters and components mean cleaner air circulating in your home, benefiting your health and comfort.

4. Reduced Repair Costs: Catching issues early often means simpler, less expensive repairs.

What Does HVAC Maintenance Include?

A typical maintenance visit from our technicians at American Home Heating & AC involves:

– Inspecting and cleaning the condenser and evaporator coils
– Checking refrigerant levels and recharging if necessary
– Lubricating moving parts to reduce friction and wear
– Tightening electrical connections
– Cleaning or replacing air filters
– Calibrating the thermostat

How Often Should You Schedule Maintenance?

We recommend scheduling maintenance for your HVAC system at least twice a year:

1. In spring, before the cooling season begins
2. In fall, before you need to switch on the heating

By following this schedule, you ensure your system is ready to perform optimally when you need it most, whether you’re in Cranston, Warwick, East Providence, Johnston, Lincoln, or East Greenwich, RI.

Remember, regular maintenance is an investment in your home’s comfort and your HVAC system’s longevity. Don’t wait for a breakdown to occur – schedule your maintenance check with American Home Heating & AC today!
