6 Consumer Misconceptions of HVAC Preventative Maintenance

HVAC contractor, serving the communities of Jefferson, St. Louis and St. Charles in Missouri dispels six consumer misconceptions pertaining to preventative maintenance.

>> FALSE: Preventative maintenance for heating and air conditioning is a marketing gimmick, established by HVAC contractors to ensure more business.

On the contrary, preventative maintenance represents numerous advantages. An annual AC checkup assures energy conservation and lowers utility bills, while extending the units’ shelf life. In other words, regular checkups improve an AC’s performance.

>> FALSE: Deferring HVAC maintenance economizes energy costs.

When loose parts, an accumulation of debris, and/or corrosion go undetected on an AC due to lack of maintenance, homeowners should expect higher energy bills as well as a malfunctioning heating and air conditioning system. Preventative maintenance entails cleaning the air conditioner and conducting diagnostics to make sure it is operating properly and efficiently.

>> FALSE: It is necessary to change the furnace’s air filter once a year.

Air filters embody a vital role in the promotion of clean air quality. To optimize the HVAC’s performance, heating and air conditioning professionals advise monthly replacement of the air filter.

>> FALSE: As long as an air conditioner releases some type of air, it is working fine.

Anytime an air conditioner does not emit chilly air, it is an indication of a bigger problem.

>> FALSE: Poor indoor air quality does not influence allergies asthmatic symptoms and other respiratory ailments.

Medical research and studies conducted by the Environmental Protection Agency report that many U.S. households have poorer IAQ than some industrial parks.

>> FALSE: Heating and cooling membership service contracts are a waste of time and money.
