One Habit That Will Immediately Improve Your HVAC’s Efficiency

If you do just one thing to improve the performance and efficiency of your heating and air conditioning unit, it should be conducting regular maintenance of your HVAC system. Doesn't sound special? It's still very important. Here's why.

Prevention Is the Best Policy

You probably already know that preventing a problem before it arises is the most effective way to deal with it. HVAC systems are no different. To avoid a major and unexpected repair bill, you need to maintain your HVAC system regularly. You can do this yourself, or you can have an HVAC professional do it for you through a maintenance agreement or service plan.

Maintenance Plans

Maintenance plans are a fantastic way to ensure the regular and complete maintenance of your HVAC system. Not only can you prevent major problems from occurring, but the regular maintenance will keep up the efficiency of your HVAC unit.

Given the HVAC unit's complexity, it will wear down and degrade over time. Important components become damaged from the elements. Parts rub against each other, creating wear and tear. Moving parts lose lubrication. Therefore, if you do not regularly maintain your HVAC unit, it will lose efficiency over time. This will result in higher energy bills and a shorter overall life of the HVAC unit.

So what exactly will occur during a maintenance plan visit? Several things will improve your HVAC's efficiency, including:

  • Lubrication of moving parts
  • Cleaning or replacement of air filters
  • Replacement of degraded wires and mechanical components
  • Checking refrigerant levels
  • Inspection of your thermostat

If you're not doing regular maintenance for your heating and air conditioning system, you're only hurting yourself. You can expect higher energy bills, a shorter useful life from your HVAC unit and the potential for major repairs.
