Heating and air conditioning units are the systems that keep a home comfortable year-round. They warm us up in cold weather and keep us cool when things start to heat up. However, regardless of how dependent we and the residents in our Leander rental homes we are on them, we tend to neglect their purpose and forget to maintain them as we should. Keeping HVAC systems clean is imperative for the purpose of longevity and air quality. Having messy units puts your tenants at risk and can create expensive future problems.
Unfortunately, because an HVAC system is usually out of sight, it can often be neglected. Over time, dust and debris can build up in the ductwork and filters, causing the rental home’s heating and air conditioning to work less efficiently. Sometimes, this can cause a bad smell or spread pollutants throughout the house, anything in your building’s air ducts will end up in your tenant’s respiratory systems which is obviously not good. Clogged or dirty filters can also put stress on the units, causing it them work harder than necessary to heat or cool the home. Motors that are working too hard tend to wear out faster, leading to unnecessary replacement expenses.
It can then be concluded that allowing the HVAC units in your Leander rental property to fall into disrepair is an expensive mistake. As a landlord, you want to make sure your heating and air conditioning units last as long as possible which is why routine maintenance is important to keep your heating and cooling systems clean and functioning properly. With the right property management company, however, this mistake is easy to avoid. If you’d like to pay a little bit now to save a lot later, you will want to implement a regular HVAC maintenance schedule for your rental units. Industry experts suggest that ductwork should be checked and cleaned every three to five years, while filters should be changed frequently, perhaps several times a year, depending on the location of your rental property and what type of system it has.
