You want to ensure that your air conditioner and heating system run well throughout the year. This way, you can avoid major repairs and a possible breakdown in the middle of a hot day or chilly night. Below, we’ll give you some guidance on how to keep your AC and heating system functioning smoothly.

Get Professional Maintenance

It all revolves around regular maintenance. At GVEC Air Conditioning & Heating, we offer a seasonal maintenance plan, HVAC Spec Check, to the residents of Gonzales, TX. Besides providing a tune-up every spring and autumn, it comes with numerous benefits, including a 10% discount on parts.
A maintenance professional helps your AC and heater by finding and addressing all the small, unnoticeable issues that are plaguing it and hindering its performance. The technician can check for system leaks, a heat pump’s refrigerant line, or a furnace’s heat exchanger. He or she can adjust out-of-balance parts, lubricate motor bearings and replace old and corroded wiring.

Ensure Good Airflow

Your system may be relatively new and run well enough, but you must make sure that nothing blocks airflow. A blockage will put pressure on the AC or heater motor, forcing it to work harder to circulate air. This stress can shorten its lifespan.
You should check the filter in the supply vent monthly, replacing it at least every three months or sooner if dirty. Your supply vents should remain open. Don’t block them with a rug or a piece of furniture.

Upgrade the Thermostat

You may boost efficiency with a new thermostat that offers not only programmable scheduling but also smart controls and wireless access. Smart thermostats can learn your temperature preferences and make minor adjustments throughout the day for maximum energy savings.
