Most of us think if our HVAC system is “mostly working”, then its fine. As long as your system is still mostly keeping you cool in the summer and mostly keeping you warm in the winter, it is tempting to go on with life and not give your HVAC system a second thought. In addition to keeping you warm and cool during the different seasons, your HVAC system provides a lot of other insurance to you and your family. Keeping it properly maintained is vital to the health of your HVAC system. We have the right HVAC system maintenance plan for you.
HVAC System Maintenance Plan
The temperature and humidity levels inside your home are directly controlled by your HVAC system. It is important to keep your home at a steady temperature all year long. If you turn off your HVAC system for any length of time, damage could begin to occur. Large changes in the temperature inside your home can cause damage to your home and many items inside your home. Varying temperatures can also cause the humidity levels inside your home to fluctuate.
Its important to keep an eye on the humidity levels in your home. Changes in the humidity level in your home are natural and to be expected depending on the weather outside. However, it is important to try and control these fluctuations as much as possible. High humidity levels in your home can lead to damage to your home’s structure, interior finishes, and items in your home.
Keeping your HVAC system properly maintained all year can provide a lot of benefits to you and your home. Let’s take a look at some of those benefits.
1. Electronics. High humidity levels in your home can damage any electronics you have in your home. High humidity levels will allow moisture to collect on the components of your electronics, causing corrosion. Conversely, low moisture can cause excess static electricity which can short-circuit your electronics. Fluctuating temperatures can also affect your electronics. Plasma tv screens are very sensitive to high temperatures.
2. Upholstery. Window treatments and furniture upholstery are not cheap and can be damaged by fluctuating conditions inside your home. Leat, in particular, is very sensitive to changes in temperature and can crack or become discolored.
3. Wood. Any woodwork in your home is at the mercy of your working HVAC system. Wood is extremely sensitive to moisture in the air. When wood loses moisture, it contracts and when it gaines moisture, it expands. This can lead to cracking in the wood. Excess moisture can also lead to warping of any wood in your home. Woodwork in your home includes cabinets, furniture, flooring, trim, doors, beams, subfloors, and also building materials.
4. Artwork and also musical instruments. If you have any artwork on display or musical instruments in your home, these can also be damaged by fluctuating temperatures or humidity levels in your home. Dry air can cause your artwork to shrink and also crack. Excess moisture in the air can cause mold to grow on your artwork.
