1. Makes the Air in Your Home Healthier
Indoor air quality is a major concern in many homes. According to the EPA, the air in your home can be up to five times more polluted than the air outdoors. When your HVAC system is properly maintained, common pollutants like pet dander, pet hair, dust, and VOCs are filtered from the air to improve indoor air quality. Mold and mildew, especially for Florida homes, are also a major concern because of higher humidity levels. A well-maintained system will work to keep humidity levels in check and make the air in your home healthier.
2. Helps Reduce Risk of Heat-Related Illnesses
High temperatures and humidity levels increase the risk of heat-related illnesses. Young children, the elderly, and chronically ill are most at risk for illnesses like heat exhaustion and heatstroke because they cannot always regulate their body temperatures. Having your system professionally maintained at least once a year helps ensure that your air conditioner will keep your home cool and comfortable during the hottest months.
3. Reduces Upper Respiratory Problems
HVAC maintenance, like duct cleaning, system cleaning, and filter cleaning or replacement, keeps allergens, mold, bacteria, and viruses from being recirculated in the air. This can help reduce upper respiratory problems like colds and viruses. But it can also help prevent the exacerbation of symptoms of existing respiratory conditions like COPD, asthma, and allergies.
4. Keeps Your Home Comfortable
Regular HVAC maintenance will reduce the risk of heating or cooling breakdowns when you least expect them. This helps prevent the stress of dealing with a hot, humid home in the summer or a chilly night during the winter. Keeping your home comfortable year-round is crucial to you and your family’s overall well-being.
