3 Sure-Fire Ways to Increase the Lifespan of Your HVAC Unit


Do you have a maintenance agreement for your HVAC unit? If not, are you prepared to send the equipment to an early grave, and spend money on a new system in the process? This might sound dramatic, but the truth is a good maintenance agreement can extend the life of your unit. Here are three sure-fire ways a maintenance agreement can help you get more years from your heating and cooling system:

#1: Prevent Breakdowns

Do breakdowns really impact the life expectancy of a mechanical system such as your heating and cooling equipment? In fact, they do. When any system has a breakdown, it then compromises the system as a whole. Even with repairs, it’s still not like it was when it was new. Maintenance can prevent breakdowns, and fewer breakdowns mean more years for it to keep working for you.

#2: Reduce Wear and Tear

We tend to use our HVAC units year round, and with that much use comes a lot of wear and tear. Without proper maintenance, that daily use can take a toll on the equipment. Service twice a year can help keep it clean, free from dust and debris, properly tuned and lubricated, and running at peak performance. This will help give it a longer life.

#3: Protect Vulnerable Components

Twice-yearly maintenance means your equipment and all the vulnerable parts and components are getting checked and calibrated, and repaired or replaced when needed. This will help protect things such as the pump, filters and belts, leading to a longer life for the system as a whole.

Don’t say a premature goodbye to your heating and cooling system. Find out more about how the right maintenance agreement can extend the lifespan of your HVAC unit when you contact the team at H.H. Hovey Heating and Cooling.
