      Avoid These 5 HVAC Maintenance Mistakes This New Year

      Your HVAC system does more than keep your home comfortable. It also plays a crucial role in maintaining good indoor air quality. To ensure it continues to perform well, you must maintain it properly. Regular maintenance can also prevent sudden breakdowns and prolong your unit’s lifespan. 

      Avoid These 5 HVAC Maintenance Mistakes This New Year

      Keep your HVAC system efficient by avoiding these five common maintenance mistakes.

      1. Not Scheduling Regular HVAC Inspections

      Just like your vehicle needs regular check-ups, so does your HVAC system. Have your unit assessed at least once a year to ensure all components are functioning well. Professionals can catch early signs of wear and tear that inexperienced individuals tend to miss. Routine maintenance and inspections can help detect small issues before they lead to bigger and more expensive problems. 

      2. Improper Use of Programmable Thermostats

      A programmable thermostat can improve your HVAC system’s performance and your home’s comfort. However, when used incorrectly, it can cause your unit to suffer from unnecessary strain, increasing the risk of malfunctions and higher energy costs. You should adjust your thermostat’s settings depending on the time of day or season. For instance, temperatures should be lower at night or when you’re away. 

      3. Overlooking the Air Filter

      One of the easiest ways to avoid HVAC issues is to replace air filters regularly. Clogged filters can restrict airflow in your system and cause air pollutants to circulate within your living space. Usually, you need to clean or replace HVAC filters every three months. You might need to do this task more frequently if someone in the household has allergies or asthma. 

      4. Neglecting Outdoor Units

      Your HVAC’s outdoor unit is as important as the indoor one. Debris and dirt can accumulate around it, affecting its efficiency. It can be easy to forget this component, but keeping it clear of leaves, dirt, and other obstructions is essential for good performance and longevity.

      5. DIY Over Professional Services

      While there are certainly some simple HVAC maintenance tasks that enthusiastic homeowners can handle, many aspects should be left to the professionals. It’s best to hire skilled technicians for repairs and installations. Attempting to do the job yourself can risk your safety and worsen existing issues.
