4 Reasons to Keep Up with Your HVAC Unit
Do you have your property’s HVAC unit serviced regularly by a professional? A large percentage of homeowners – about 42% to be exact – don’t bother. But for those who do, their units last 40% longer!
Put that percentage in perspective: 40% longer translates to years of your HVAC unit’s life. If the average lifespan of an air conditioning unit is 15 to 20 years, home and business owners who don’t service their HVAC with professional repairs might expect their units to last up to 10 years, if that.
In addition to prolonging the life of your Nashville home or business’ HVAC unit, here are several valid reasons to service and repair it regularly:
- Maintain Complex Equipment
- Ensure Efficiency
- Care for the Essentials
- Prepare for High-Demand Seasons
- Choose Max Maintenance

Maintain Complex Equipment
Your HVAC’s mechanical equipment is designed to operate for a certain amount of time at a certain efficiency rating. Contactors and sensors, valves, ignitors, blowers, and fan motors will need to be replaced to ensure the HVAC is not only working properly but also in operation for as long as possible. This is why HVAC repairs are so important.
HVAC technicians are aware of what it takes to maintain and repair your HVAC’s equipment, along with any factory-recommendations. And with electrical shock as one of the most common HVAC repair injuries, technicians are also equipped with the proper guidelines and industry-specific tools needed to make repairs safely.
Beginning in 2023, the United States will be introducing new, minimum energy efficiency standards and regulations for both cooling and heating. This is because – according to the U.S. Energy Department – air conditioners release about 117 million tons of carbon dioxide every year, which obviously impact the environment.
Being proactive about your HVAC unit’s efficiency is best for the earth, but it also will lower your electricity bills. Regular HVAC repairs and maintenance that ensure your unit’s efficiency (and cheaper electric bill) include filter changes, changing refrigerants, and cleaning dirty coils. All of these repairs keep the unit running smoothly and prevent overworking.
Care for the Essentials
Did you know that a neglected HVAC unit can cost you 10% to 25% more in electric bills due to energy loss? It could also cost you your unit – and an early replacement. Specifically, maintaining the larger mechanical parts of your system (such as your compressor, condenser, and evaporator coils) will contribute to the unit’s overall lifespan.
On a similar note, keeping your equipment outfitted with its essential parts as designed by the manufacturer is another simple but effective approach to keep your unit functioning like-new, and for longer.
Prepare for High-Demand Seasons
Let’s face it: Do you want to be repairing or replacing an HVAC unit in the middle of scorching hot weather or a blizzard? A unit failure is not just inconvenient; it is dangerous.
The easiest and most cost-efficient way to prevent this scenario is to hire a technician to evaluate and repair any potential issues before extreme high or low temperatures hit.
