Must-Dos to Extend the Life of Your HVAC System
An HVAC system is a significant financial investment for many homeowners. We’re sure you want to get as much life as possible out of your system. By following the must-do tips we’re going to go over below, you can work to enhance the life of your HVAC system and ensure that your money lasts longer.
Get Yearly Professional Service
While keeping up with homeowner maintenance is excellent, you must bring in a professional at least once a year. They can inspect your system, lubricate moving parts, check electrical connections, and ensure that it is ready to take on the winter and summer seasons.
Change Its Air Filter Regularly
Your HVAC system has an air filter that collects unwanted airborne toxins from the air inside your home. As this filter works, it will become full of airborne particles. Eventually, it will become inefficient at filtering and need to be replaced. It’s recommended that you return your HVAC filter every few months.
Invest in Adequate Insulation
Especially during the winter, your HVAC system works to keep your home at a comfortable temperature. However, if your home lacks adequate insulation, your heating system could be overworked throughout the winter as it attempts to keep up with your heating demands. Investing in proper insulation for your home is a great way to help ensure that your HVAC system doesn’t overwork. The thicker your insulation, the less your HVAC system will have to work to maintain your desired temperature.
Get Your Ductwork Cleaned
If you have a forced-air system, you have ductwork throughout your home. This ductwork can accumulate airborne toxins that can restrict the free flow of air throughout. Cleaning your ducting will help remove this debris and keep the air flowing freely.
