How to Make Your HVAC System Last Longer
You need your HVAC system to work because you need to stay comfortable in your home all year round. Here’s how to get the longest life out of your system so it doesn’t need as many repairs or as frequent replacement.
Perform Regular Maintenance
HVAC maintenance means that professionals get a chance to look over your system and test each component to make sure it’s all working well. It makes your system more efficient, so it experiences less wear and tear and, therefore, should last longer. Maintenance also gives you a chance to make repairs before something goes catastrophically wrong.
Give it a Break
Turn your HVAC system off once in a while. If it’s nice outside, open the windows and let the outdoor air heat or cool your home. If you’re going away, turn the system off until you get back.
Change Those Filters
Find out how often your system needs new filters, then get on the ball with changing them. When you don’t change these, your system has to work extra hard to do its job. This means that the motor works harder and experiences more wear and tear. Lower your long-term costs when you invest in air filters now!
