Each season you get ready for a new kind of weather. You change your wardrobe, or stock up for the winter. You take care of things and get ready. Your HVAC system requires the same kind of seasonal preparation but it’s easy to think of your heating and cooling system as a set of static machines.
They're just there, doing their jobs; you don't really pay attention until something goes wrong. But your HVAC system needs regular maintenance to put out its best performance and extend its value. Without some TLC, a neglected heating and cooling system can suddenly become a big problem.
Some of the more common HVAC issues could be avoided by some relatively simple maintenance tasks. A dirty air filter can cause dirty air to flow quietly into your home, affecting your indoor air quality, putting the members of your home at risk for allergy attacks, headaches, chest pain, bronchitis, and other conditions. A dirty filter can also overwork your unit as it struggles with air flow and temperature demands.
