Your HVAC system not only keeps your Buford, GA, home at your desired temperature. It also helps to improve the quality of your indoor air and maintain humidity levels. Keeping your HVAC unit functioning at its best with regular maintenance is crucial to preventing poor IAQ and system inefficiency. Find out how fall maintenance can help improve your home’s comfort this fall.
Improved Indoor Air Quality
No matter how clean you keep your home, there are airborne allergens and chemicals that can result in respiratory concerns. They can also worsen asthma or allergy symptoms. Pollutants such as dirt, dust, pollen, and pet dander can all travel through your home via your HVAC system. As these pollutants move through your unit, they will settle along the ductwork and throughout the components. During a maintenance visit, your technician will clean all of these parts to prevent this debris from traveling into your home.
You should be able to simply program your thermostat and let your system keep your home at the desired temperature. Without regular maintenance, your system will begin to operate less efficiently. During an HVAC tune-up, your technician will check to make sure everything is in working order and that the airflow is optimal. This will ensure that the temperature remains consistent throughout your home.
When parts in the system become worn or damaged, you might hear some strange noises coming from your system. Frayed belts can make squealing noises, and worn bearings can cause clanking or grinding. Having regular maintenance will help address the root of these issues before they become bigger issues.
