Home » Air Conditioning & Heating » Preventative Maintenance



Keeping up with your HVAC maintenance amidst the intense Florida climate is incredibly important for a number of reasons. The last thing you want is for your system to break down on a hot day, leaving you miserable and your house susceptible to various damages. The key to preventing this is to invest in and implement a preventive maintenance plan to protect your HVAC system.

What Is a Preventive Maintenance Plan?

The goal of a preventive maintenance plan is to be proactive, not reactive. The cost of implementing a preventive maintenance plan may seem inconvenient, but it is exponentially less than the cost of fixing an issue that could have been prevented with proper care and the cost of the replacement AC parts. Though there may still come a day when an unfixable problem occurs with your HVAC system, properly maintaining it will push that day off as long as possible.

This preventive maintenance should be conducted once or twice a year, depending on how much your system gets used and how much you are able to invest financially. Not only will these checks catch issues that are beginning, but experts can predict when they think certain pieces of your system may need replacing or potentially see issues.

02 Why Is Preventive Maintenance Important

Why Is Preventive Maintenance Important?

Your HVAC system will last longer if you work to prevent any issues from coming up with an HVAC maintenance plan. Though quick reactions are important when there is an issue, it is just as — if not more — important to increase your unit’s sustainability by doing preventive maintenance on it regularly. Ensuring your unit is running at its peak efficiency will save you money in the short term and the long term.


Monitoring your HVAC and keeping up with heating and air conditioner maintenance will make your home safer. Before you leave for vacation is a great time to enact your preventive maintenance plan so you don’t come home to a damaged house from busted pipes, water damage or other issues.

Making sure your units are in good shape also lessens the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning, which can cause serious health issues or death. Carbon monoxide leaks are often caused by broken heat exchangers.

Air Quality

Maintaining your HVAC unit can greatly improve the air quality in your home. This is especially important if you or anyone in your family suffers from respiratory issues. Though some indoor allergens are inevitable, there is a lot that can be eliminated with proper air circulation. Depending on your family’s sensitivities, pet dander, dust, cigarette smoke, pollen or mold can all make your way into your home and hurt your health. Preventing your systems from failing will keep warm and cold air moving, keeping your air well-filtered.


Preventive maintenance on your HVAC system will keep you comfortable year-round. Keeping up with your home AC maintenance will keep you and your family cool in the intense Florida heat. One way to monitor the need for preventive maintenance is not getting used to one room in your house simply being hotter or colder than the others. This likely means your system could use a tuneup.

Keeping up with the central AC unit maintenance will also decrease the chances that your unit begins to make noises as it ages. This will improve your overall quality of life.


When your HVAC system isn’t working properly, it has to work harder to do what it is meant to do. This takes up more energy and fuel. When it is running smoothly and most efficiently, it is better for the planet. Options like a programmable thermostat or different gas sources can also lessen the environmental impact your system has.

Peace of Mind

When you invest in a preventive maintenance plan, you’re investing in your peace of mind. Sometimes things will go wrong, but if they do, you know you have done everything you can to keep your unit in the best shape possible so there will be less damage to the unit as a whole. This allows you to focus on what is important in your home, not what could happen and what you should be doing about it.
