Whether you are dealing with an older HVAC system or one that has just been installed, you want to take the appropriate measures that will keep it running for as long as possible. Most homeowners don’t want to replace their HVAC system prematurely as this can be a costly endeavor. There are several small things you can do that will extend the life of your HVAC system and Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning is here to talk about them.
Keep Landscaping Trimmed Away from Condenser Unit
Many people will use shrubs, grasses and other landscaping plants to hide their outdoor unit. It is important that even when you have these plants surrounding your unit, you have them trimmed on a regular basis. If your landscaping is too long, it can start to restrict airflow to the condenser unit which can end up causing big problems. Not only can it cause unwanted repairs, but it can all make it so that your system isn’t working as efficiently as it could be.
Turn AC Fan to Auto
Something that many of us overlook on our thermostat is the fan setting. There are many people that have their fan setting switch to “on” without even realizing it. If you check yours, and find that to be the case, turn it to auto. This will keep your fan from running around the clock. When the fan is running that long and that often, it can cause unnecessary stress on your system.
Check Your Air Filters
The airflow into your HVAC system has a big impact on how the entire system runs. This is often neglected by homeowners and can put your HVAC system at risk of a breakdown. Most filters need to be changed every 1-3 months depending on how much your system is used. In Las Vegas during the summer, most AC systems are running around the clock, and it is important that homeowners are paying close attention to their air filters.
Is it Necessary to Service AC Every Year?
You should have an HVAC professional at your house a couple of times each year for a tune-up on your HVAC system. Every fall before you turn your heat on, and every spring before you are turning your AC system on. When you have these regular tune ups, your HVAC technicians will be taking a close look at every aspect of your heating and cooling systems which will help you avoid major repairs and premature replacement issues.
