It doesn’t matter if you’re a first-time homeowner or if you’ve owned your home for most of your life. At some point in time, your HVAC system is going to need to be repaired.
If you’re wondering what types of things tend to cause HVAC failure, you’re in luck. For this post, we wanted to address the top 4 reasons that homeowners call us to help them out.
They’ve forgotten to change their air filter
We’ve written countless posts about the importance of keeping your air filters maintained. They should be checked on a monthly basis and they should be changed as often as they start to look dirty.
In a previous blog post, we described running an HVAC with a dirty air filter as being somewhat similar to driving a stick-shift car, at 70 miles per hour, in first gear.
When air filters are dirty and clogged, they HVAC motor is going to need to a work a lot harder; all that added strain can eventually lead to failure. If you haven’t been maintaining your air filter, that’s something you’ll want to start doing immediately.
The system is old
New systems are going to be far less likely to break down than old systems are. If you have an older HVAC system that hasn’t received annual maintenance, that will also, be far more likely to break down than a system that’s been cared for.
The best advice we can give to homeowners is that they should have an experienced HVAC technician out to their home on an annual basis. This will help ensure that older systems run smoothly for as long as possible. On the other hand, if you’ve found yourself in a position where you’re dealing with frequent repairs, maintenance may no longer cut it. It may be time to consider a new HVAC for your Longmont, CO home.
