Maintenance on anything can seem tedious, but it usually proves to be effective. Maintenance is especially important when it comes to your home, which is why your friendly neighbors at Viviano recommend performing routine maintenance on your HVAC system. We have gathered details on all things HVAC maintenance.

HVAC 101

HVAC, which stands for “heating, ventilation, and air conditioning,” is the backbone for the temperature of your home. They help maintain a comfortable temperature, optimal air quality, and energy efficiency in your home. As much good as it provides, there is also a lot that can go wrong with your HVAC system, which is why regular maintenance is vital.

Common HVAC problems often include:

  • Leaks                                                              
  • Corrosion
  • Blown fuses
  • Wear and tear
  • Dirty filters
  • Thermostat and pilot issues

Because there are so many issues that can occur with your HVAC system, it is essential to jump on these problems before they cause serious damage to the system, your home, or your health.

What is HVAC Maintenance?

Routine HVAC maintenance can have different meanings depending on who you ask, but at Viviano, we like to keep it efficient and effective. HVAC maintenance often includes a team coming to your home to:

  • Clean coils, drains, and other system elements
  • Inspect connection, operation, and functionality
  • Monitor refrigerant pressure
  • Test safety controls
  • Lubricate moving parts
  • Assess fans and outdoor units

If you are confident in your abilities, you can check some of these tasks off your list regularly. However, it is still best to get expert HVAC services every once in a while to ensure things are in tip top shape.

Why Perform Routine Maintenance?

HVAC maintenance may not seem very thrilling, but it can provide several benefits to your health and your budget. Regular maintenance can prevent expensive repairs down the road and proper care can help maintain the efficiency of your system, lower energy costs, and extend the life of your HVAC system. Additionally, a clean HVAC system supplies clean, healthy air into your home. Ducts can often clog with dust, pet dander, and many other contaminants, which can be harmful to those that live in the home. Regular maintenance can benefit those that suffer from asthma, allergies, and chronic respiratory issues.
