Okay, so you have a newly installed air conditioning system from AirTeam. Now, how can you make sure it lasts as long as possible? Keep reading for four tips to help keep your HVAC system running like new.
1. Change the Filter
Clogged air filters are easily the number one cause of HVAC failure. A failure to change air filter leads to buildup of pollutants and an inability for air to effectively pass through. If you don’t have a cat or dog, then you should change your air filter every 90 days. However, if you do have a cat or dog, then you should change your air filter closer to every 60 days. Lastly, if you have more than one cat or dog then you need to change the air filter roughly every 20-45 days.
Not changing your air filter on a consistent basis would be like having Lance McCullers Jr. pitch every single game for the Astros. Sure, he’s a great pitcher, but you don’t want to wear him into the ground by overusing him.
2. Clear Space Around Your System
In order for your HVAC system to operate as efficiently as possible, make sure that there is a clear area around the system. Grass, leaves and debris can prohibit the system’s air circulation and it’s ability to effectively cool your home.
3. Check for Noises
Your HVAC system likely has a normal humming or whirring sound that it makes. However, if it starts to make a sound that you can tell just isn’t right, then you need to call the pros at AirTeam. Like we said, every system makes some noise. But if it starts making a loud thudding noise… yeah, it’s time to call AirTeam. Let’s put it this way, a noisy system is unlikely to be an efficient system.
