2 Ways to Extend Your HVAC System’s Lifespan

You and HVAC
Posted on in Blog

All good things must come to an end. A good book. A good movie. Your phone. Even your car will die at some point, and you'll have to go through the process of acquiring a new one. But you can prolong your material goods' inevitable end with the care you give them. The HVAC system in your Nacogdoches, Texas, home is expected to last between 10 and 15 years; with proper care, it will live out its days and then some. Here are two ways to extend your HVAC system's lifespan.

Smart Heating and Cooling

Think about it. You wouldn't press the gas pedal on your car as hard as you could for as long as you could, so why would you do the same to your HVAC system? Sure, Texas gets unbearably hot sometimes, but cranking the AC and trying to get your home below 70 degrees Fahrenheit just isn't a good idea. The effort will strain your system, and you'll probably never reach that temperature anyway. Keep your home around 78 degrees Fahrenheit when you're home and warmer while you're away to reduce that strain.

Regular Maintenance

Just like the occasional trip to the doctor helps you feel your healthiest, your HVAC system will benefit from regular checkups from our licensed professionals. At least twice a year, your system should receive maintenance that includes (but isn't limited to) diagnosis, cleaning, and repair. Regular maintenance not only will save you money on your monthly utility bills but it will also make sure every piece of the system is running as it should. An efficient system is a long-lasting system.

You want an HVAC system you can rely on not just for this summer but for many summers to come. With these two simple methods, your HVAC system will stand the test of time.
