Health, Huge Savings, and a Happy Home: The Benefits of HVAC Cleaning
Gear-heads, mechanics, and commuters will talk your ear off about the necessity of routine car maintenance. You use your car every day, so maintenance will save you big money in replacement and repair costs, they'll say, and they are right. Car maintenance will keep you and your family safe, they'll say, and they are right about that too
It is hard to argue with the bare-bones logic of automotive maintenance enthusiasts. You need to make an investment of time and money in order to keep your high-performance machine running optimally. The health and money-saving benefits cannot be ignored.
Well, the same can be said about your HVAC system. Though your HVAC system is certainly less glamorous than a high-performance vehicle, it is similarly sophisticated, and its maintenance is equally if not more important. After all, this often-overlooked piece of machinery is responsible for the air your family breathes, their warmth in the winter, and their comfort in the summer.
If you are interested in learning about how Steamatic’s HVAC cleaning services can help your family stay healthy, comfortable, and save money, then read on to learn about the benefits!
Extend the life of your equipment and reduce ownership costs.
The term “ownership costs” is somewhat ambiguous, and it can be defined in many ways. For the car owner from the introductory example, ownership costs include oil changes, tire rotations, windshield repairs, and so on. Understandably, these costs increase when the car starts to break down due to owner neglect.
Relative to our discussion of your home’s HVAC system, routine maintenance service from Steamatic has a similar purpose. It has been empirically proven that neglecting to perform routine maintenance results in a gradual decline of mechanical system’s energy efficiency and durability. For homeowners who neglect to maintain their HVAC units, ownerships costs will soar as they begin to experience premature equipment failure, inflated operating costs, and unforeseen replacement expenses.
Simply put, Steamatic saves you money over the long term. The affordable cost of your maintenance appointment will quickly pay itself back in ownership savings.
Maintenance means optimal energy consumption and low utility bills.
It isn’t hard to imagine how a dirty and poorly-maintained HVAC system will bump up your energy bill. Clogged or dusty air ducts will make it harder for air to pass through, so that your HVAC system pushes hard to get heated or cooled air to the thermostat. This kind of overdrive heating and fan work can quickly add up.
Furthermore, poorly-calibrated thermostats and dirtied condenser coils will end up consuming much more energy than those which are well-maintained. It is estimated that even a lightly soiled coil can ramp your HVAC operating expenses up by 15-25%.
Improve the health of your families and the productivity of your employees.
Whether you are looking to maintain the HVAC system in your home or office, you will find the health benefits difficult to ignore. At home, dirty ducts and sub-optimal HVAC systems can blow dirty air and allergens at your family, friends, and pets all day long. Imagine the eye, throat, and respiratory irritation they would experience sitting in front of a filthy fan. Over the long term, this can cause serious health issues, especially in those vulnerable populations already suffering from some form of breathing issue. A simple single-day Steamatic maintenance call can eliminate all of these concerns to help your loved ones breathe better and be healthier.
These health concerns apply both to home and office environments, but in a business setting, the financial benefits are especially pronounced. When your HVAC system is blowing clean air, you can expect to see better attendance and significantly less “sick building syndrome.” It is estimated that more than 20% of employees will experience headaches, fatigue, problems concentrating, and itchy noses or eyes in the workplace as a result of poor indoor air quality. Furthermore, keeping the temperature comfortable year-round will keep your employees happy and therefore more productive in the work place. Comfortable interior temperature is especially important in culinary or food production settings where sweat becomes a health hazard.
In our society, we spend a considerable amount of time indoors. This is problematic if your HVAC system is allowed to dirty or fall into disrepair. Save money and keep everybody healthy with a simple Steamatic maintenance call.
