    3 Ways to Love and Care for Your HVAC

    Wednesday, February 28, 2018


    If you’re hoping to extend the lifespan of your HVAC system, maintenance agreements are too important to overlook.

    Your home's HVAC system does a lot for you — keeping it working properly is, therefore, a priority, which is where maintenance agreements come into the picture. They are just one of the ways you can keep your heating and cooling setup functioning well into the future, but they’re perhaps the most vital.

    Maintain Reasonable Thermostat Settings

    This tactic is much simpler if you have a programmable thermostat. You can reduce the strain on your HVAC system by accounting for periods of time when you won't need it to work quite so hard. For example, pushing the settings to less comfortable levels when the house is empty can save the system a lot of trouble — it'll also save you a bundle on your utility bills.

    Filter Maintenance is an Essential Task

    It's all too easy to overlook your system's air filters, but failing to perform this maintenance will cost you in many ways. Clogged filters constrict airflow, which forces the HVAC system to work harder for the same outcome. Overworked systems don't last as long, nor are they capable of working as efficiently.

    Sign Up for Routine Scheduled Maintenance

    Repair calls in the winter are all too common, but what if you could avoid needing to make them in the first place? Maintenance plans provide expert tune-ups and inspections that ensure your system is in good shape before periods of heavy use. This extends the HVAC's lifespan while helping you avoid repair costs down the line.
