Ways You Could Be Potentially Harming Your HVAC Unit

July 22, 2021 | Blog

From the harsh summer heat to the low winter temperatures, your HVAC system plays an important role in keeping your home comfortable. That’s why you should make sure that you’re taking care of your system properly.

At Efficient Systems, we understand the importance of efficient heating and cooling in your home. That’s why we’re spreading awareness on practices you should avoid in order to keep your HVAC unit running properly.

Not Keeping Your Unit Clean

Part of your HVAC’s job is to cycle air through your home. This air passes through a filter before entering your home through the vents. This filter catches harmful air pollutants, but as time passes, these pollutants build up. When your filters become too dirty, it will become difficult for the air to flow freely throughout your home. This means that your system will have to work harder in order to accomplish its job.

This extra effort by your HVAC unit will cause wear and tear, damaging your system. To keep your system protected, be sure to change your air filter regularly.

Blocking Vents

As your HVAC works, it is trying to cool or heat your home to your desired temperature. This happens by spreading the air from your system throughout your home via your vents. When your vents are closed but your HVAC system is still running, it becomes harder for your system to reach its goal. This is because the unit is having to work harder and longer to get your home to a certain temperature. 

When your system has to work harder like this, more strain is put onto your HVAC system, which can eventually lead to it becoming damaged.

Using the Wrong Sized Unit

When it comes to your HVAC system, you should make sure that its size is right for your home’s needs. For example, if you are needing to heat or cool a larger space, you will need a larger system. If you are using a system that is too small, it will have to work extra hard to impact the temperature in your home. This extra strain can be damaging for your unit and prevent your home from being heated or cooled to your liking.

When choosing an HVAC system, it is important to make sure that it is a size that’s appropriate for doing the job efficiently.

Neglecting Maintenance

Getting an AC tune-up is important because it allows you to make sure that your system is still running efficiently. During the tune-up, experts will provide services such as cleaning and inspecting your unit. Having a regular tune-up will make sure that your AC unit is still in good condition and help identify problems before they get worse. This can save you on the costs of having an AC repair done in the future when there may be a greater problem.

In addition to identifying problems, having a tune-up can even help you save money on your energy bills. This is because, in addition to performing AC maintenance, technicians can adjust the settings on your unit, allowing it to run more efficiently. The less energy your unit has to use to maintain your home’s temperature, the more money you will save.
