Why These Are the Easiest HVAC Parts to Have to Replace

Your heating-and-cooling system is made up of many HVAC parts that need to work properly in order to heat or cool your Yuma home. Some of these parts can become worn over time due to wear and tear. Other parts can break down or develop other damage. The following HVAC parts are some of the easiest to replace if they become worn or broken.

Air Filters

Air filters in HVAC systems play an important part in ensuring these systems run efficiently. These filters trap dust, pet dander, and other kinds of debris, which keeps your indoor air quality healthier. All of this debris ends up coating HVAC filters, however, which lowers their efficiency. In some cases, having dirty air filters can cause your HVAC system to break down. You can easily replace the air filters in your HVAC system before this happens. In fact, you should check air filters each month and put new ones in as often as needed.


Thermostats determine when your HVAC system comes on and how often it needs to run in order to cool or heat your home. In some cases, thermostats might stop working if they need new batteries or develop other minor problems. However, thermostats that lose calibration or have major problems should be replaced. This helps prevent your HVAC system from running too often or not running enough.

Gas Valve

If you have a gas furnace, the gas valve might need to be replaced due to corrosion. This valve helps control the flow of natural gas through your gas line to your furnace.


Contactors in your HVAC system produce electricity that the blower motor, condenser fan motor, and compressor need in order to work. Pitting, arcing, or other electrical problems with these contactors can prevent your HVAC system from working as it should.
