Douglasville Air Conditioning | Extending the Life of your Air Conditioning System

Although saving money is a top priority for most families, many do not realize that proper care for their heating and cooling systems can wind up saving them a lot of
money – and their systems. Extending the life of your systems can be easy and
relatively cheap, as long as you give them the proper care and attention. Here
are some things to consider to prolong the life of your equipment:

Regular Cleaning

Keeping your heating and cooling systems clean can go a long way to extending their lives. The dirtier your equipment is, the less efficient it becomes and the harder it must work. The increase in work input can cause an exponential increase in wear-and-tear, which will bring about early repairs. The worst case scenario that can happen is that you will have to replace your system prematurely.

Maintain a Proper Environment

Maintaining a proper environment for your heating and cooling systems is cheap and easy. Providing your a/c unit shade while keeping the area clean of debris helps prevent your system from excessive exertion and overheating. If you use a heat pump, keep your vents open or you might risk excessive wear-and-tear or even damage your system. Making a habit of checking the environments can greatly contribute to longer lasting systems.

Regular Maintenance

When you notice a part of your heating or cooling systems that can be fixed or replaced, you need to immediately get that resolved. Even when it’s something that is seemingly minor, such as a duct leak, you still need to make sure it’s quickly fixed. Otherwise, you may risk the need to early replace other parts or the whole system. In the case of a neglected duct leak, air pollutants can get into your system and your home and system may experience humidity problems which can cause irreversible damage to your system over time.

In the long run, regular maintenance is significantly cheaper because it helps
prevent entire system failure.
