Check Out the Answers to Your FAQs About HVAC SystemsYour HVAC system should be able to heat and cool your Yuma home efficiently throughout the year. In order to do so, it’s important for you to keep it in good operating condition. If you’re not sure how to do that, the following answers to frequently asked questions about HVAC systems can help.

When do I need to change the filters?

The air filters on HVAC systems gather dirt, dust, and other debris over time, which can cause these systems to work harder when heating or cooling homes. Check your air filters once a month, and replace or clean them if they appear dirty.

What can I do to make sure my HVAC system lasts a long time?

Replacing HVAC systems is a costly investment, but you shouldn’t have to worry about doing so if you keep yours maintained. In addition to changing or cleaning the air filters in it on a regular basis, you can also increase your system’s efficiency and help it last longer by having preventive maintenance done.

When should I have my HVAC system maintained?

You should have your system serviced by a professional HVAC technician at least once a year. Having your system serviced before warmer weather arrives is ideal, since Yuma’s hot summers can strain your air conditioner. A technician can look for potential problems with your system and take steps to prevent them from occurring. You might also consider having your system serviced before cooler weather arrives to make sure your home is adequately heated during winter.

How big should my HVAC system be?

If you need a new system, making sure it’s the right size for your home is essential. Systems that are too big can cost you more in energy use and even increase your risk of mold growth if your home is cooled too quickly. A system that is too small won’t heat or cool your home efficiently.
