Four Ways To Extend The Life Of Your HVAC System
1. Install a Programmable Thermostat
Overworking your HVAC System is a great way to shorten its’ life. Installing a programmable thermostat controls the usage of your HVAC system. It allows you to set a predefined schedule that adjusts the temperature of your home based on time of day and season, turning the heat down at night and during the day when no one is around.
2. Replace Air Filters
If your air filter looks like an old, dusty accordion, it’s past time to replace the filter. Often neglected, your air filter can cause your HVAC System to blow cold air and drain the life out of your HVAC System if not replaced or cleaned. The air filter function is to clean the air and protect your system from allowing dirt and debris to enter the HVAC System.
3. Prevent Air Leaks
Air leaks rob you of the conditioned air your HVAC System works so hard to produce. Not only do air leaks drain your home of that warm air but it also pushes your HVAC System to work harder and longer, resulting in a reduction of its lifespan. Your front door, windows, walls, bathroom and kitchen vents, basement intrusions and any small gaps and spaces can allow air to infiltrate. Preventing drafts and eliminating air leaks to ensure your home is properly sealed and insulated is one of the best things you can do to improve the comfort of your home as well as the life of your HVAC System.
