Do you keep your HVAC working all day? Or, are you making it work harder? If so, you’re reducing your HVAC efficiency and lifespan slowly. When you set the temperature too high or too low, your HVAC system is working harder to maintain that temperature all over the house. Also, if you give your HVAC poor maintenance, this affects the capacity of it, making it work harder.

Overused HVAC can lead to a lot of problems, including health issues, high energy bills, and not to mention the repairs. For this reason, it’s so crucial that you recognize if you’re overusing your HVAC to avoid these issues. 


3 Common HVAC Overuse Problems

As we were saying, overused HVACs can bring a lot of problems sooner than they should. If you have one of these issues with your HVAC system, it means that you’re overusing it and you need to take care of it as soon as possible.

1. Irregular temperature and airflow

Your HVAC system accumulates dust and debris over time. This issue will obstruct the ducts, and it will affect the proper distribution of hot or cold air. It’s a common problem to non-maintained HVAC systems, but due to overuse, it will happen more often. Also keep an eye on windows and doors seals, because a hot/cold air leakage can lead to uneven temperature. 

2. Dirty Filters

Filters are made to last at least a year depending on their use. If your HVAC filters work frequently, they will have a much lower life usage. Dirty filters can cause weak air circulation and extra work from the unit to make air move. And don’t forget about airborne viruses which filters help prevent spreading at your house.

3. Damaged thermostat

A damaged thermostat will make your HVAC system work consistently and not at the temperature it should. This will consume a lot of energy and will affect your energy bill. Fixing or changing it’s essential to avoid these problems. It can be a little problem at the beginning, but it will cause bigger ones if you don’t pay attention to it.
