Best Practices to Minimize Wear and Tear On HVAC Systems
By limiting wear and tear on your HVAC system, you extend its lifespan and avoid the likelihood of needing repairs. There are some best practices to follow to achieve this goal.
Change the Filter
The most important practice to follow is to change your HVAC system’s filter regularly. If you’re not changing the filter, you’re putting excessive strain on your system’s components. Air can’t flow through the system with ease when the filter is clogged with dirt, dust, and debris. Change it every one to three months.
Install a Smart Thermostat
Smart thermostats increase the efficiency of your HVAC system. They reduce wear and tear because your system will run less when it’s not as needed, such as when you’re gone for the day. You can even make adjustments when you’re on vacation by using a mobile app.
You should have an HVAC company tune-up your system every year. This service includes lubricating moving parts, which reduces wear and tear. The technician will inspect your system to make sure everything is in good working order, and little issues are fixed before parts get broken.

Make Sure You Have the Right Size HVAC System
When you have an HVAC system installed in your home, you need to be sure it’s the right size. One that is too small or large will experience excessive wear and tear because it can’t efficiently heat and cool your home. An incorrectly sized system often produces frequent cycling, which leads to parts wearing down and breaking.
