Keeping the inside of a home at a comfortable temperature is no easy task. When the weather outside gets extremely hot or cold, your HVAC unit will have to work harder to keep the inside of your home comfortable. A poorly maintained HVAC unit will struggle to do its job. Over the past year, home repair spending has increased substantially. This increase is due in part to the fact that the average American home is around 37 years old. Broken HVAC units cost a lot of money to fix, which is why you need to provide this essential system with the care it deserves.

Properly caring for your HVAC unit will not only make it more efficient, it will also make it last longer. Are you trying to extend the life of your HVAC system? If so, here are some things you need to focus on.

Have Your Unit Professionally Maintained Twice a Year

Routine maintenance is the main thing your unit needs to stay functional. Some homeowners think that having their units maintained once a year is sufficient. In reality, you need to have your unit maintained in both spring and fall. In spring, HVAC technicians will do things like check refrigerant levels and fan capacitors to ensure your unit is able to produce cool air to deal with higher-than-normal temperatures.

Fall maintenance usually involves an in-depth furnace inspection. With a small investment, you can hire HVAC professionals to inspect and maintain your unit. If any problems are discovered, an HVAC technician can fix them before they cause your unit to stop working. At Hall Heating & Air, we work hard to provide our customers with affordable HVAC repairs and maintenance. With our help, you can get the most out of your HVAC unit and keep it reliable for years to come.

Keep The Air Flowing

Overworking a unit can cause serious repair issues. The last thing you want is to wear out your unit prematurely due to consistently overworking it. Clogged air filters and dirty air ducts restrict the amount of air allowed to flow in and out of your HVAC system. Without the right amount of air, your HVAC unit will run constantly.

This is why you need to change your HVAC filers and have your ducts cleaned by professionals routinely. By doing this, you can extend the life of your HVAC unit and improve indoor air quality.

Invest in New Insulation

A drafty home can be extremely hard on an HVAC unit. If the air heated or cooled by an HVAC system is escaping through drafts, you will overwork your unit. One of the main causes of drafts is worn-out insulation. Checking your attic insulation is the first step in correcting this problem. If the insulation is old or damaged, replacing it is a wise move. With the addition of new insulation, you can reduce the amount of work your HVAC unit has to do.

Extending the life of your HVAC unit is not easy. However, if you implement these tips, you can achieve this goal.

I called Hall Heating and Air to schedule a furnace inspection before cold weather hits. The ladies that answered the phone at Hall Heating and Air were very helpful, very professional, and Caleb our technician was able to come the very next day. I was so surprised they were able to fit us in so quickly! Caleb was able to determine the state of our furnace, and with a camera showed us the damage to the gas pipes. He immediately called back to his office at Hall Heating and Air and they were able to get us the information we needed for a new furnace. Holly was extremely helpful when I spoke to her at the office and helped us with financing. They were able to approve us the very same morning. I would recommend Hall Heating and Air over many many businesses in our area that provide the same service.
