How a Maintained HVAC System Adds to Your Kingston Home Comfort

January 02, 2015

Maintaining your heating and cooling system provides you with amazing benefits. Maybe one of the most noticeable traits of a well-maintained HVAC system is its capacity to achieve indoor comfort effortlessly, regardless of the weather outside. You can learn to discover the many ways you may enjoy greater comfort at home when your heating and cooling systems are maintained throughout the year.

Cleaner Air

One major component of routine maintenance for your heating and cooling system involves changing your furnace filter and cleaning out your furnace and air conditioner. These tasks are significant for two reasons: a cleaner HVAC system will operate more efficiently and it will circulate cleaner air throughout your home. When your HVAC system is filthy, the dirt and dust that accumulates in the system can be circulated with heated and cooled air as it is distributed to your vents. This means your family is constantly breathing in lower quality air because your HVAC system is not well-maintained. Making certain that your furnace and air conditioner are clean at all times will lower airborne contaminants for greater comfort and health.

Quieter Function

In addition to adding heated or cooled air to your home, your HVAC system can also add something else—noise. While you can expect some noise associated with furnace and air conditioner operation, a poorly-maintained system will produce more noise as it runs. Noise might be due to loose parts, failing belts, and a number of other factors that are addressed during scheduled tune-ups. Failing parts could even cause extremely disruptive noises, such as clangs, bangs, screeches, and grinding noises. All of these noises will disturb the peace and quiet in your home. By maintaining your HVAC system routinely, you’ll sidestep these noisy situations to ensure that your furnace and air conditioner operate quietly to create a more relaxing home environment throughout the year.

Better Humidity Control

One of the most common wintertime complaints is dry air inside the home. Many furnaces have a tendancy to dry out the air during the heating process, causing irritation of the skin, eyes, nose, and mouth. If your furnace work with a humidifier to maintain a comfortable level of humidity throughout the winter, your system calls for regular cleaning and maintenance as well. If your humidifier becomes clogged, dirty, or damaged, it won’t operate properly and you’ll be left with dry air inside your home. Talk to your HVAC service professional during your furnace tune-up about checking and cleaning your humidifier as well. In most cases, your humidifier’s water source may need to be turned on, as it might be turned off during the summer when added humidity is unneeded. Making certain your humidifier is maintained right along with your heating system will boost your indoor comfort levels during the heating season.
