What kind of benefits can HVAC maintenance agreements provide you this summer? We all know there’s nothing better than an efficiently running air conditioning system in the South Carolina summertime. If you have a proper maintenance agreement in place, professional technicians should have provided you with a helpful visit to tune and tweak your A/C system this past spring to ensure your system is primed for the summertime heat.

Whether you have a maintenance agreement or not, these tips will help you make the most of your HVAC to keep cool and cut down on costs:

1. Pay Attention to Airflow

The rate of airflow that goes across and through your air conditioning system’s evaporator coil has a large impact on your system’s energy efficiency as well as on the level of comfort in your home. If the air flows too quickly, you may have issues with too much humidity. If it flows too slowly, you may have issues with your home not being cool enough. Both problems may produce higher energy bills as well as additional wear and tear on your A/C system.

With the right maintenance agreement in place, your tech will know how to ensure your HVAC airflow is right where it needs to be. If it’s not, the tech will know what to do to repair the issue for you.

2. Check the Ductwork

Your air conditioning system can’t and won’t run very efficiently if you have faulty or leaky ductwork. Believe it or not, up to 30% of your cooled air can be lost due to this potential problem. Whether you choose to do this yourself or get the help of an HVAC professional, sealing gaps, cracks, and other sources of leaks can go leaps and bounds in saving money, increasing comfort, and aiding efficiency.

3. Keep Up on Maintenance

You can perform some basic maintenance on your HVAC system to increase energy efficiency. By keeping your system wiped down and clean, changing air filters regularly, and keeping the thermostat set at a practical setting, you will use less energy and prolong the life of your HVAC, and your budget will thank you for it.

Regular maintenance is vital not only to maximum comfort quality in your home, but also to lengthen the lifespan of your A/C system and ensure it is running at top efficiency.
