You can make sure that your cooling system keeps you cool for many years to come even if you use it for the majority of the year. Follow these five suggestions to extend the lifespan of your air conditioner, from scheduling routine HVAC maintenance to maintaining a constant temperature.

Open every register
The HI-VAC Air Conditioning Service staff is fully aware of your thoughts. Why leave registers open in spaces like guest rooms or storage facilities that are rarely used? It may be tempting to close those registers in order to save energy, but doing so may make your air conditioner work harder as it tries to cool your entire house.
Open all of the registers in your home and make sure the air can circulate freely to extend the life of your cooling system. Large pieces of furniture and rugs can easily restrict airflow, making your air conditioner work harder. Open all of the interior doors as well while you’re at it to increase airflow.
Regularly Replace the Air Filter
Despite their apparent simplicity, air filters are among the most crucial parts of any air conditioner. Pet dander, dust, pollen, and other airborne contaminants are not only kept out of your home’s air supply with the help of these devices; they are also prevented from entering your air conditioner and slowing it down.
Replace the HVAC filter at least once every three months to maintain your home’s air supply and air conditioner as clean as possible. Change the filter out each month during times of high usage, such as the summer.
Enhance the state of the air
Numerous indoor air quality problems can cause chaos in your Weston home, whether it be because you or a member of your family are allergic to something or you can’t stand the humidity any more. Even while you might be able to tolerate a little dust or stale air, you should be aware that these types of air quality problems can reduce an air conditioner’s lifespan.
There are simple ways to get assistance if your air conditioner is unable to adequately clean the air or regulate humidity on its own. To increase air quality while boosting your air conditioner, our staff frequently suggests investing in HVAC add-ons like whole-home dehumidifiers, energy-recovery ventilators, or whole-house air purifiers.
Keep the temperature steady
Not everyone can consistently agree on the same temperature. The air conditioner may be under greater strain than you realise if your family members routinely fight about indoor temperature and modify the thermostat.
Installing a smart thermostat will enable you to set it once and forget it, as advised by our team. Zoning systems may be the best option for maximum comfort and efficiency if your home needs a few distinct temperature zones to keep everyone content.
Plan routine HVAC maintenance
This should be at the top of your to-do list if you don’t plan HVAC maintenance at least once a year. Maintaining the efficiency of your air conditioner and spotting minor problems before they become serious ones depend on regular HVAC tune-ups. Tune-ups can extend the life of your air conditioner by preventing it from working more than necessary to keep you cool.
