Western Heating & Air understand that HVAC system maintenance is a year-round concern. Exactly what is HVAC maintenance? Why does it matter to the effective function of these systems?
A Clean System Works More Efficiently
When discussing Orem, UT AC repair concerns with clients, a technician’s first question is likely to be “What is your HVAC cleaning schedule?” Cleaning is a primary form of HVAC system maintenance and should be performed on a regular basis. The frequency of cleaning will depend in large part on the size of the system. Residential systems can be cleaned once or twice a year when rising or falling seasonal temperatures result in increased system use. A commercial system may need cleaned more frequently since a greater volume of air is passed through it every day.
The fans in an HVAC system draw air from the building, pass it through the heating or cooling matrix, and then circulate it back through the ductwork to each room. Even though filters catch a large amount of the dust, allergens, and microscopic debris present in the air, some of this debris inevitably gets through and lodges on the fans. Over time, a considerable buildup accumulates on the fans. Commercial HVAC systems recirculate air several times a day and this buildup is blown back out into the building. Dirty fans waste money by not doing the job they were intended to. Clean fans circulate cleaner air and promote overall system efficiency.
