If you are wondering how to reduce the chances that your furnace, boiler, air conditioner or mini-split breaks down, most often, you can do this through regular maintenance. The most common reason for a breakdown is from neglecting the maintenance of the HVAC system.
However, there is no need to panic when this happens because several steps can be taken to restore your unit to its working condition.
1) Check your filters
Checking your filters is crucial in keeping your furnace and ac running smoothly. If the filter is dirty or clogged, your HVAC system will be working harder to run the air through it, increasing the wear and tear on your system and shortening its life span, and increasing the chance of a breakdown. Also, it will not filter out allergens and particles from the air.
2) Replace broken parts
If there are any broken parts on the unit, they will need to be replaced to run correctly again. This can be done by a professional to get your furnace or air conditioning in working order as fast as possible.
3) Get a tune-up
A yearly tune-up is always a good idea to keep all your appliances running smoothly, including your furnace. This will help catch any minor problems before they turn into big ones.
By following these simple tips, you can reduce the likelihood of your furnace breaking down and having to replace it altogether. If you have any other questions or concerns, be sure to contact us.
