It isn’t cheap to replace your heating and cooling system, so you want to ensure your unit lasts as long as possible. Typically an HVAC system lasts about 15 to 25 years. You can make sure it reaches the 25-year mark by having it serviced regularly. This is why Cascade Energy Services offers summer mini-split heat pump tune-up and preventive maintenance near Mercer Island.
Things That Can Damage Your Mini Split Unit
The lifespan of your HVAC system depends on how you treat it. If there is almost no maintenance, it will break down sooner, and you will need to replace the system. Regular inspections catch minor problems and things like defective components. One of the main reasons HVAC systems burn out early is being the wrong size for the home. Here are some other things that can impact your mini-split heat pump systems:
- Very high usage – often from a unit that is too small
- Improperly installed – never a problem with CES
- Corrosive conditions – salty areas
- Using it the wrong way – running it with windows and doors open
