3 Reasons Why HVAC Maintenance Is Important

One Hour Heating & Air

Your HVAC system is the circulatory system of your home. It blows warm air in the winter, cool air in the summer and moves the air through a system of ducts and vents that are installed throughout the home. In short, the HVAC system is what keeps you comfortable and makes your home somewhere you want to be year round. If you want to keep up this level of comfort, you need to engage in regular HVAC maintenance and learn why HVAC maintenance is important. Regular HVAC maintenance helps you avoid sticker shock from a costly repair or equipment replacement when least expected. Most parts of your HVAC system are out of sight and out of mind, but that doesn’t mean they should be ignored and neglected. Here are three reasons why you need to stick to a regular HVAC maintenance schedule.

Why You Need an Eco Friendly AC Unit by 2020

Does your home have some type of air conditioning? If so, you should be aware of a regulatory deadline that could impact your ability to repair it in the future, or even require a full system replacement. The problem is with the ozone-depleting refrigerant chlorodifluoromethane, also known as Freon.

The most common version of Freon in recent years is known as R-22. Due to updated environmental regulations, domestic chemical manufacturers cannot produce new R-22 and it may not be imported. Remaining supplies of new R-22 may be used to maintain existing equipment. However, after 2020 – in less than three years, only recycled, reclaimed, or previously produced R-22 may be used. So where does that leave you? The short answer is: it depends.

There are several important factors that will ultimately determine your course of action. As a provider of air conditioner systems and service in the Charlotte area for the past 46 years, we want our neighbors to understand their options. First, let’s answer a few clarifying questions.
