There is nothing worse than having to pay the heating repair guy during the holiday season. At a time when money is tight enough, spending additional money to have your home’s HVAC system fixed when it’s cold outside or blazing hot during summer in Mesa, Arizona can derail most people’s household budget. But did you know that there are three simple tricks that you can use every month that can help you avoid these un-planned and costly heating and cooling repairs?
How To Avoid Heating and Cooling Repairs At Your Mesa Home
Tip #1 – Replace Air Filters Frequently
We can’t stress this enough – the leading cause of most HVAC system breakdown is build-up of dust, debris and other contaminants that leads to a reduction of smooth air flow. And the best way to avoid restriction of air flow inside any HVAC system; heating or cooling, is to simply replace HVAC system filters inside the home on a regular basis.
Filters are designed to trap debris from entering internal components that drive virtually any mechanical device. And when the air flow is disrupted or blocked, the result is that the HVAC system needs to work harder to achieve desired results. However, the easiest thing you can do to avoid costly damage to your heating or cooling unit is to simply replace those air filters as often as possible.
Tip #2 – Dust Off Vents
Replacing filters is a great way to reduce common air system failures and parts breakage. But did you know that simply dusting off the vents inside of your home can also help prevent damage to the HVAC system? Just like replacing filters, cleaning the vents in your home helps to reduce the amount of dust throughout your home. This can lead to several benefits including:
- Decrease monthly energy bills by reducing the amount of energy needed to power your system
- Increase the internal air quality by keeping the vents free of dust, allergens and other debris
- Extend the longevity of major electronics in the house. When the vents are free of dust and debris, it is likely that your home’s electronics will not gather tons of debris that finds itself embedded inside those delicate electronic devices like computers and televisions.
Tip #3 – Have Your Heating & Air Conditioning Inspected Frequently
Finally, the best way to avoid major repairs that many home owners in Mesa have completed on their heating and AC units is to simply have a professional inspect them frequently. It is recommended that you contact a licensed HVAC repair specialist to inspect the HVAC system twice per year – once in spring before the Air conditioning is used frequently, and once in fall before you crank up the heater.
