Do you suffer from seasonal conditions like hayfever or related allergies? You probably won’t want to know that all of that sneezing and wheezing and coughing and labored breathing can be exacerbated by running an HVAC in Myrtle Beach that has not been properly serviced. Remember, and most parts of the country, and the South is certainly a prime example, we begin running our air conditioners relatively early in the spring. And because of that, and because of the fact that it stays warm until well into the autumn months, we put a lot of stress on our air handling equipment.
And if you don’t have a properly trained technician come out and clean all your equipment out at least once a year, you’re probably just continually recycling a lot of that bad air through the air conditioning unit at back out into your home. It makes it harder for your air conditioner to do its job, and because it’s running less efficiently, you are burning through far more energy than you’d like to. Naturally, this adds up to a significantly higher expense, but can even cause total failure.
And we all know that these kinds of systems always break down at the worst possible time! Have you ever tried to get someone out for air conditioner repair in the dead of the summer when units all over the city are on the fritz, and schedules are backed up for potentially weeks at a time? It can be miserable waiting for your climate control to be properly restored.
For that reason, we recommend that you consider regular AC maintenance as a necessary expense. Think of it as an investment in avoiding one of these crisis situations that we just talked about above.
You’ll also very much enjoy the impact it will have on the quality of the air that flows through your house. If you or any of your family members deal with asthma, or any of the hayfever and allergies that we discussed earlier, filtering out that air will make a huge difference in terms of how everyone feels!
There are also things that you can do. Learn where the filters are in your home for your air handling system, and make sure that you change them on a regular schedule. The paperwork that came with your HVAC system will generally suggest not only the filter size, but what is a optimal replacement schedule.
