Maintaining your HVAC Auckland system is of pivotal importance if you want it to keep running smoothly through the seasons. We look at a few reasons why you should schedule professional HVAC maintenance routinely.
- Maintain Energy Efficiency
Even though your HVAC system seems to be working fine, you may not realise that it’s consuming more power than it’s supposed to. As the system starts wearing down from neglect, it struggles more to keep pumping out air at the expected rate.
- Maximise The Lifespan Of Your HVAC
Routine maintenance and servicing will ensure that your crisp, clean air will continue to provide fresh air in rooms without any significant problems. Not only will it ensure that the unit works overall, but with the replacement or correction of smaller components during a maintenance appointment, you can be assured that every part of your HVAC system will continue to work for you for years to come, or at least until its next scheduled maintenance.
- Ensure The Unit Remains Safe And Risk-free
While your air conditioning shutting down is already unpleasant, there is always the possibility of further damage occurring when your HVAC breaks down. Gas leakages or short-circuiting may occur and pose a danger to you and everyone else in your building, which is why the cost of maintenance will give you not only clean air but also absolute peace of mind.
While it may seem like a good idea to repair or maintain your HVAC system by yourself, there are dangers involved in working on these systems without the proper skillset and tools. Calling in professionals to maintain and service your HVAC system is the best option, as they follow specific procedures to ensure everything is working at 100%. This includes checking the thermostat and calibrating it if needed, lubricating all moving parts to ensure that there is no friction within the unit, and ensuring that all electrical connections are still intact and tightened properly. After that, they will inspect the condensate drain to check for any algae or sludge that might have formed and could be causing blockages. System controls, refrigerant charge and fuel line connections are also carefully inspected to ensure both functional and safety aspects are in check.
