Just like any other equipment, HVAC systems also have a certain lifespan. Heating, ventilation and air conditioning preventive maintenance, or HVAC PM, is essential in maximizing the average lifespan of an HVAC unit.
Although HVAC systems vary in quality, their lifespans are generally the same. For instance, a typical system may last 10-25 years if regularly maintained. The estimated average can vary within this range depending on external factors that can affect the system. In this post, Connolly Heating and Air Conditioning discusses various factors that affect the overall performance of your HVAC system:
The air that circulates outside of your home or office can have a significant effect on your HVAC system. For instance, a very low outside temperature will push the system to work even harder and expend more energy to make the interior less cold, while extremely high temperatures have the same effect on your air conditioning unit.
Another external factor is humidity. It’s definitely something to be aware of since it affects the weather, climate and most importantly your HVAC system. And while controlling outdoor humidity is out of anyone’s control, there are several things you can do to increase or decrease the humidity levels in your house. Talk to HVAC PM experts like Connolly Heating and Air Conditioning for further details.
When a home maintains a comfortable temperature despite being in a warm climate, this means it has good insulation. Having your home properly insulated greatly helps your HVAC system by blocking and preventing unwanted outdoor air from entering your home.
Having a big house is great until you find yourself sweating too much or shivering continuously because of uneven heating throughout the rooms of your home. Bigger space means a bigger load for your systems, which means it’s critical to have your HVAC system checked regularly to ensure that it’s heating and cooling your home evenly. Doing so will help improve the performance and lengthen the lifespan of your system.
