Ways to Ruin Your HVAC System

Air conditioning contractors spend their entire time cleaning HVAC systems and keeping them from falling apart. While many homes benefit from regular AC care, homeowners often only call for help when issues become permanent damages. Sadly, changing some bad habits could have easily prevented these damages.

Simply avoiding these bad choices can help your HVAC system live longer and better.

Never Clean the HVAC System

Homeowners may be surprised to discover just how dirty their HVAC systems can get. With air cycling through it all day long, dirt, germs and other particles can clog pathways and contaminate indoor air.

Unfortunately, all the dirt and germs that build up inside the central air cause problems. Because the central air system now has to work against the buildup, spends more time and energy to condition the same amount of air.

Not only that, key parts inside the HVAC system begin to fall apart. As a result, homeowners collect repairs while having subpar air conditioning on a daily basis.

Overburden the HVAC System

Aside from skipping regular AC maintenance, placing too much pressure on the HVAC system can cause early damages. Usually, this results from a heavy heat load.

A heavy heat load means that the indoor temperature has gotten too high for the HVAC system undo. As a result, the HVAC system works non-stop but is still unable to reach the temperature set on the thermostat.

Homeowners can avoid this problem by lessening the heat load. You can do this by:

  • Attic Insulation
  • Duct Insulation
  • Caulking windows and doors
  • Controlling indoor temperature during down times

If you choose to control indoor temperature during the downtime, do so by setting the thermostat just a few degrees above the desired temperature. This way, even while the home is empty, it never gets too hot, easing the load placed on the HVAC system.

Ignore the HVAC System

The HVAC system is rather complicated but it does a simple thing: make your home the most comfortable place it can be. Because homeowners depend on their air conditioning everyday, AC technicians never make any suggestions that would do otherwise.

For this reason alone homeowners should at least consider having AC specialists service their HVAC systems. You may be surprised to find out all the other services available to truly customize and care for your home and family through heating and air conditioning.
