Because no one wants to come home from a long day at work to a hot, humid house… 

 

Just like your car requires an oil change, your air conditioning system needs preventative maintenance to keep it running at peak efficiency. During our hot Florida summers, your HVAC system is pretty much running non-stop to keep you cool and comfortable. It makes sense that you’d need to incorporate regular HVAC maintenance into your home maintenance routine.  

 

No one wants to come home from a long day at work to a house that feels like a sauna, and regular preventative HVAC maintenance can help mitigate issues before they become a bigger problem. The AC pros at Integrity Home Solutions explain the reasons why HVAC maintenance is key to keeping your system running smoothly and efficiently: 

 

 

Risk #1: Poor HVAC Performance 

Risk #2: Shorter System Lifespan 

Risk #3: Safety Concerns 

Risk #4: Decreased Comfort Levels (we’re talking a seriously, hot house) 

Risk #5: High Humidity Levels  

Risk #6: Loss of Peace of Mind

Risk #1: Poor HVAC Performance  

 

HVAC system parts and components can break down over time due to the nature of its many moving parts. When running smoothly, your system will use less energy and save you money over time. 

 

Whether you need your HVAC system cleaned or a simple adjustment, Integrity Home Solutions will ensure that your air conditioning system is running at its best.   

 

Risk #2: Shorter HVAC System Lifespan  

 

Buying an HVAC system is a big investment which is a great reason to schedule routine maintenance to ensure that your system lasts longer.  

 

General wear and tear happen, and will get worse over time if left unfixed or uninspected. It will be cheaper, in the long run, to have preventative maintenance done on your AC unit instead of ignoring it and allowing small issues to become bigger — possibly catastrophic—  problems in the future. If/when that happens we’ll do our best to repair your system, but you may risk paying for a replacement 

 

Risk #3: Safety Concerns  

 

Believe it or not, it can be a safety hazard to ignore the preventative maintenance on your HVAC unit. Seasonal maintenance can help ensure the safety of your family.  

 

Some HVAC safety concerns include: 

 

Fire hazards: Fire hazards abound If there is a leak in your oil or gas line, a loose electrical connection, or any problems with the unit’s wiring. Stay safe. Schedule preventative maintenance

 

Carbon Monoxide Leak: Carbon monoxide poisoning is caused by a tasteless and odorless gas, and can go unnoticed. It is dangerous and even life-threatening to breathe this poisonous gas. 

 

Water Leak: If there is a clog in your unit’s drainpipe, it could flood your house causing a whole host of problems including water damage and mold growth.  

 

 

Remember, regular HVAC maintenance can help avoid all of these concerns. Call in the pros from Integrity Home Solutions for preventative maintenance before the heat of Summer sets in!  

 

 

 

Risk #4: Decreased Level of Comfort 

 

An HVAC system that is running at peak efficiency will keep the rooms in your home at a comfortable temperature.  

 

If you notice that some rooms are significantly cooler or warmer than others, a vent might be dirty or blocked. Dirty vents can make it difficult for your system to distribute heat and cold air efficiently throughout the home. 

 

With cleaning and maintenance, you can ensure that every room in your home is consistently comfortable.  

 

Risk #5: High Levels of Humidity  

 

Other than cooling your home and keeping you comfortable, your HVAC system managed the humidity and moisture levels in your home. This is especially important in our hot and humid Tampa, FL climate!  

 

Without seasonal maintenance, your system can become faulty and allow humidity levels in your home to rise.  

 

Risk #6: Loss of Peace of Mind 

 

We believe your home should be your sanctuary.  

 

You might not be aware of the age of your HVAC unit, especially if you just moved into a new home with an existing system. But when you’re dealing with an older or inefficient AC system, you are constantly running the stress risk of your unit breaking down.  

 

Scheduling regular maintenance will help give you the peace of mind that everything is running smoothly and efficiently in your unit & your home.
