All homeowners with residential HVAC systems should know the most effective ways to keep their systems functioning optimally and for a long lifespan.
- It has been decades since I bought my first HVAC brand, and it has been a journey of lessons, wins, and losses.
My first heat pump lasted for a little over ten years. I had started living alone and following the HVAC service plan provided by the cooling representatives was the last thing on my mind. I spent a few summer nights in my bathroom, hotels, and friends’ apartments because my system broke down. As I upgraded to quality air conditioners and digital thermostats, I learned the most effective ways of caring for the systems from the cooling technicians. The best time to schedule the HVAC maintenance is during spring and fall. This is to prepare the equipment for extreme summer and winter weather. It is vital to regularly tune up the indoor air cleaning system because it keeps the air quality high. The tune-up includes cleaning the air filters or changing them regularly to improve airflow and promote indoor air quality. I remember the HVAC technician from the local business also effective maintenance that saves energy. I was struggling with uneven temperature in my home, which meant the unit was often on and set to high. The installation of the zone HVAC system helped solve the issue. The system now functions optimally, and the breakdowns and no more. It is essential to consult the professionals who can assist in recommending the best approach for your system. However, all HVAC systems need a tune-up at least once a year.
