Regular HVAC Maintenance Can Improve the Air Quality in Your Home

HVAC Long IslandIt makes sense that a well-maintained HVAC system can keep your home warm during the cold winter months and cool during the hot summer months on Long Island. Regular maintenance can keep your system running effectively and efficiently and reduce the need for costly repairs or replacement parts.  Did you know however, that regular maintenance of your HVAC system also offers another benefit to your home and family?

A well maintained HVAC system can keep the air in your home clean and it can reduce the amount of pollutants that circulate within the air. The air that you breathe indoors is circulated by your HVAC system. To improve air quality it is essential to have your HVAC equipment regularly inspected and serviced so that it performs at optimum efficiency at all times.

Over time, dust can build up inside the air conditioner or heat pump in your HVAC system and recirculate throughout your home. Coils may become coated with dirt and grime, affecting the system’s ability to keep your home cool and reduce humidity. Restricted airflow due to obstructions in ducts and wear and tear on your system can prevent the air filter from cleaning your air as effectively as it should.  HVAC systems that are not properly cleaned or maintained may also cause mold and mildew to grow.  If anyone in your home or family has allergies or asthma, it is that much more important to ensure that your system is free of dust and pollutants that will enter the air space of your home.

A professional HVAC technician can thoroughly clean the heating and cooling system in your home; they will inspect the coils, clean the ducts, check for obstructions and measure the airflow. They will also perform other maintenance services and inspections to ensure the performance and efficiency of your HVAC system.

According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, “There are steps that homeowners can take to reduce particle pollution in their homes. In addition to venting combustion appliances to the outdoors (including stoves, heaters and furnaces), homeowners are advised to have a trained professional inspect, clean and tune-up central heating systems (furnace, flues and chimneys) annually. They should repair any leaks properly and change the filters on central heating and cooling systems and air cleaners according to manufacturer’s directions.​” Only a professional HVAC technician can properly inspect and clean your heating and cooling system to ensure proper function and performance.

Make sure that your family can breathe easy by scheduling regular maintenance services for your heating and cooling system.  A well maintained HVAC system will not only utilize cleaner air, but it will function at a higher level. Excellent Air Conditioning and Heating Services Inc. can inspect and perform any necessary maintenance on your heating system to ensure that it is functioning properly.  They can also perform carbon monoxide testing and test your system for any dangerous leaks, to ensure the safety of your home and family.
