Everyone wants to save money. Therefore, we constantly look for ways to lower our bills, find discounts, look for the lowest price, and occasionally cut corners. Unfortunately, using these tactics does not always turn out in our favor.

When it comes to HVAC systems, there are many misconceptions out there that could end up costing you more money, time, and stress in the long run. To help you avoid these costly misconceptions, Modern Air Solutions in Bensalem, PA is here to debunk some of these common misconceptions.

If It Isn’t Experiencing Problems, There Is No Reason To Get It Checked

If it isn’t broke, don’t fix it. You have probably heard this phrase multiple times before. You can use it to refer to a variety of things, but when it comes to HVAC systems, it is not always true. Just because your system is running, doesn’t mean that there isn’t a problem. Your HVAC system can still run even if there are small issues. However, if you let these issues go for too long, they will turn into costly repairs that will cost you more down the road. This is why it is important to contact Modern Air Solutions at least twice a year for maintenance.

The Only Maintenance My System Needs is Filter Changes

Since your HVAC system is typically outside, in your basement or tucked away in a closet, you may not give much thought to take care of it every day. It is easy to fall into the routine of just changing the filter every once in awhile and then just calling Modern Air Solutions when there is a problem. This routine will likely cost you more down the road as dirt, wear, and tear, and other damages take its toll on your system over time.

Your system may start working at the efficiency levels on the box, but if you don’t take proper care of your system, the efficiency will decrease over time. Your utility bills will increase and you may need to call Modern Air Solutions for more repairs.

What Maintenance Will My HVAC Need?

Some filters last longer than others, but most 1” filters need to be changed on a monthly basis. If you need help Modern Air Solutions can help you accomplish this. A filter change is not the only maintenance Modern Air Solutions will provide when you contact us for biannual maintenance, though.

We will inspect all of the components of your system to ensure they are working properly. This includes steps such as cleaning your system, adjusting the thermostat, checking the refrigerant levels, repair or replacing damaged parts, checking the sensor, and more. Contacting Modern Air Solutions for regular maintenance is the best way to ensure your system runs properly and efficiently.

A Larger System Equals More Comfort

With many machines, a larger system means it can produce a larger supply of whatever it creates. When it comes to HVAC systems, however, a larger system isn’t always the best choice. When your system is too large, it won’t run for as long, but it will start up more often. This accelerates the amount of wear and tear on your system and can shorten the life expectancy of your HVAC system. This means you will need more expensive repairs and will need to replace your system sooner.

When your system doesn't run long, it also may not properly dehumidify the air. This will leave your home feeling clammy and uncomfortable. To ensure your HVAC system is the right size for your home and family, contact the professionals at Modern Air Solutions.

Choosing the Company With the Lowest Prices Will Save Me Money

Your HVAC system is one of the largest investments you will ever make. You also use it every day to warm or cool your Philadelphia home. With this in mind, it makes sense to be a bit cautious when choosing the right system and company to install and service it.

There are many other aspects you should consider including, experience, customer satisfaction, and location. Modern Air Solutions has years of experience, has installed over 300 systems, has high customer satisfaction and is local to your Bensalem home.
