Does Your HVAC System Become Worn Out in Warm Climates?

One of the most popular HVAC systems in warm-weather climates like our Martin County is the heat pump. It has the ability to heat and cool a home. However, that also means that it works year-round to keep your home comfortable. What follows are practical tasks you can do and professional preventive maintenance steps that help prevent an HVAC system from becoming worn out before its time.

Homeowner Tasks to Prevent an HVAC System from Becoming Worn Out

An HVAC system that’s worn out uses more energy to operate, is more susceptible to breakdowns, and it doesn’t keep your home as comfortable as it should. So, if these common problems that are often found in HVAC systems that are worn out sound familiar, consider the following components and what you may need to do to them to lighten the load.

  • Air filter. The HVAC air filter removes airborne dust and contaminants that would otherwise clog HVAC parts. It’s imperative to HVAC performance to replace the air filter as suggested by the manufacturer — or sooner if it becomes full.
  • Air vents. Clogged air vents contribute to HVAC systems getting worn out because if air vents are clogged, airflow is blocked. Keep an eye on your air vents and clean them as needed to promote free airflow, healthier indoor air, and a more comfortable home.
  • Outdoor unit. The outdoor portion of your HVAC system needs free airflow too. Make sure the area around the outdoor unit is free from airflow obstructions by at least 2 feet. Pull up and remove any weeds and vegetation that could hinder airflow.

Professional Help to Prevent an HVAC System from Getting Worn Out

Like any machine with electrical and moving parts, your heat pump needs professional preventive maintenance to operate at peak performance, extend its life span, and prevent breakdowns. What follows are a few of the important parts of your HVAC system that are routinely serviced during professional maintenance.

  • Coils. The evaporator and condenser coils are responsible for exchanging heat and need to be cleaned.
  • Refrigerant. Refrigerant level is checked to ensure optimal levels.
  • Ductwork. Air ducts are inspected for free airflow, leaks, design, and dust and dirt accumulation.
