Heating and air conditioning units are the systems that keep a household comfortable year-round. They warm us up in cold weather and keep us cool when the weather starts to heat up. However, no matter how much we and the residents in our Everett rental homes rely on them, we don’t maintain them like we should, which can lead to big complications in the future.
Because HVAC systems are regularly out of sight, they are easily forgotten. Over time, dirt and other debris can collect in the ductwork and filters, causing the home’s heating and air conditioning to run less efficiently. Sometimes this can cause a bad smell or spread pollutants throughout the house, potentially causing respiratory issues or intensifying conditions like allergies or asthma. Clogged or dirty filters can also strain the units, making them work harder than necessary to warm or cool the house. Motors that are working too hard are likely to wear out faster, leading to unwanted repair costs.
As you can see, not maintaining the HVAC units in your Everett rental property is a costly mistake. However, with the right property management company, this mistake can be avoided. Consistent maintenance will help keep your heating and cooling systems clean and running properly. Industry experts recommend that ductwork is surveyed and sanitized every three to five years, but filters should be changed more frequently, perhaps several times a year, depending on the location of your rental property and the type of system it has.
