An HVAC system is a big purchase so it’s important to make sure you’re following all the necessary steps to keep it running as long as possible and as efficiently as possible! Here are a few tips that will help you extend the life of your HVAC system and keep things running smoothly for years to come:
- Perform Regular Visual Inspections
One of the quickest ways to know if something is wrong with your HVAC system is to just take a quick look at it. Check the battery status, make sure the filter isn’t clogged, check registers for signs of mold, and remove any clutter around your unit.
