Some people may think that as long as they don’t see problems with their HVAC system, they don’t have to worry about it. This is not the case. The aforementioned statement is one that many companies use to try to avoid spending money on maintenance to make sure that their HVAC system runs as it should.
An HVAC system will require maintenance, just like any other aspect of your building. Most people won’t notice problems with them until something ends up going wrong. But sometimes, there are things that can be identified before problems arise, and this can help you save more money and time. If you don’t maintain your HVAC system, you open yourself up to the following problems.
Causing More Damage With Your Air Filters
Your air filters are important, and they actually do more than give you higher air quality. The filters also serve to keep your HVAC system protected against airborne particles that can put your system at risk. If you keep replacing your air filter, it will be able to keep your building cool while remaining more energy-efficient. You should consider replacing your air filters quarterly.
If you don’t, they’ll become clogged with all sorts of dust and debris. This lowers the lifespan of an HVAC system considerably. If that isn’t enough, the quality of air that people get will be much worse, which can result in various respiratory conditions.
Furnace Problems and Gas Leaks
There are many factors that can cause an HVAC system’s furnace to break, and neglecting maintenance is only going to further your risk. With constant cleanings, you’ll make sure that your combustion chamber stays safe. You’ll also be able to keep gas leaks from happening before they can cause problems.
On the flipside, if you don’t keep up with regular cleanings and you don’t check on gas leaks, there can be dire consequences. The process of combustion will cause carbon monoxide to spread. Carbon monoxide has no smell or color, and it is highly toxic and hard to identify if you don’t have monitors. This gas usually gets exhausted via a flue vent, but the gas can build up in your building if you have a clogged exhaust, which is incredibly dangerous if the problem isn’t resolved immediately.
