The HVAC system in your Kountze, Texas, home is made up of many parts, including the air conditioning unit, furnace, air ducts, and thermostat. Frequent repairs can be costly, so keeping your current system in excellent shape will not only save you money but also help your system last longer. Keep reading to learn how at-home and professional preventive maintenance can extend the life of your HVAC system by keeping it working smoothly and efficiently year-round.

Maintain Good Airflow

An essential part of at-home and professional HVAC maintenance is cleaning. Because your HVAC system is designed to cycle your indoor air several times a day, dust and debris collect in your air filter and system parts over time. Dirty coils, compressors, blower fans, filters, and grilles can greatly reduce airflow, which causes your system to work less efficiently as it tries to maintain your preferred indoor temperature. Overworked systems break down and must be replaced sooner than efficient ones, so regularly cleaning filters and parts will extend the life of your system.

While you can and should replace your air filter every 30-60 days, leave cleaning all other system parts to a professional.

Solve Issues Quickly

Another part of preventive HVAC maintenance is spotting, repairing, and preventing system issues. Because professional technicians will be checking all parts of your system during an inspection and tune-up, from the electrical components to the moving parts, they can usually spot issues before they become costly problems. A thorough preventive maintenance visit will help you avoid system breakdowns, costly repairs, and replacing your system sooner. Therefore, you can keep your system working smoothly and for longer by routinely scheduling professional preventive maintenance.

A little preventive work goes a long way in HVAC maintenance. You can help your system work efficiently by regularly changing your air filter, but don’t stop there.
