Ways to Extend the Life of an HVAC System

Your HVAC system is expensive, so you want it to last as long as possible. There are many things you can do to extend the life of your system.

Real HVAC Services offers services to help your HVAC system last longer and work more efficiently. Our technicians are experienced and professional, providing maintenance and repair services in the Delmarva Peninsula counties in Delaware as well as the Kent and Sussex counties in Maryland. Here are the top four ways we can help your HVAC system last longer:

Ways to Extend the Life of an HVAC System

1. Regular Maintenance

You should schedule two tune-ups a year. The first should be for your furnace, and the second one should be for your air conditioner. It’s best to have your AC tuned-up in the spring and your furnace worked on in the fall.

Our technicians will thoroughly inspect your AC unit or furnace. They will clean the interior and lubricate moving parts. They will replace the filter and make sure everything is operating efficiently. Regular maintenance is essential for an HVAC system’s lifespan to last as long as you want it to.

2. Change Filters

During a tune-up, one of our technicians will replace your filter. However, homeowners should be changing their own filters at least every other month. A dirty filter will make your system work much harder than it needs to, resulting in a shorter HVAC lifespan if not addressed in a timely manner.

3. Be Reasonable About Temperature

You shouldn’t set your thermostat to 68 degrees when it’s 100 degrees outside. Your air conditioner will have to run continuously throughout the day, unable to cool your home to 68 degrees. An overworked HVAC system is guaranteed to have a shorter life.

4. Air Circulation

If air is able to easily circulate through your home, it helps your HVAC system. Interior doors should be left open to maintain proper airflow. Vents shouldn’t have rugs, drapes or furniture over them.
