Reinvigorate Your HVAC System with a Few Maintenance Tasks

Reinvigorate Your HVAC System with a Few Maintenance Tasks
  • Opening Intro -

    In most homes, the HVAC system consumes more energy than any other appliance and keeps the home comfortable.

    Their energy efficiency is highly dependent on their condition.


A clean and adjusted system will last longer and use less energy than one that’s neglected. Although complicated, homeowners can keep their HVAC system running as efficiently as possible through simple, routine maintenance that includes:

Air Filter Changes

Nothing makes a bigger difference in the performance of your HVAC system more than a clean air filter. When you run it with a clogged filter, the air going through the air handler slows down, and it takes longer for the system to heat or cool your home. The system will run longer, which increases its energy consumption.

As dust collects on the filter, some of it enters your system. Dust deposits form on the parts in the air handler and may enter the duct work. Dust is the foe of anything electrical and mechanical, and it will act as insulation on the parts, which shortens their lifetime. The dust that doesn’t settle inside the air handler will circulate through the ducts into your home’s air. Besides lowering the indoor air quality, it will collect on the registers, which slows the airflow down even further.

Outdoor Condenser Cleaning

Homeowners with central air conditioning systems and heat pumps need to pay attention to the outdoor condenser. It’s the component that cools the hot refrigerant coming from the air handler, and pumps the cooled refrigerant back to the air handler. Whenever debris collects within three feet of the perimeter of the condenser, the air flowing through the condenser coil can slow, which retards the cooling process. The stress on the compressor that supplies the refrigerant indoors will increase and it will wear out faster. The compressor is the HVAC system’s most expensive part, and without it, an air conditioner or heat pump won’t work.

Routine Professional Maintenance

All HVAC manufacturers recommend annual maintenance performed by an HVAC pro to keep the system running at its best. If your system is still under warranty, the manufacturer may require proof of maintenance to keep the warranty valid. Some companies, such as Logan A/C & Heat Services Inc., know that the deep cleaning, adjustments and diagnostics the technician makes keep the equipment running as efficiently as possible.

Nothing reinvigorates your HVAC system better than keeping it clean. The small investment it takes rewards you in better, more dependable comfort, fewer repairs, and lower heating and cooling bills.
