HVAC Maintenance for a Comfortable Home

HVAC

 

As the seasons start to change, now is an ideal time to have the entire HVAC system inspected in your home. You will want to contact us to schedule a fall inspection. Preventative maintenance will help reduce the chance of a larger issue occurring, when you need to rely on the unit. We will check all the parts and components of the system to make sure they are working correctly. If there is an issue, it is always best to catch it at the first sign, before the problem gets worse. Also, if the issue is fixed soon enough, it saves you time and money in the long run.

HVAC Inspections

We can check the furnace system before you will need to turn it on. This helps to make sure everything will be ready to go, and you can just flip the switch once you want to have warmer air in your home. We can check the ductwork for any issues. This can include cracks, punctures, or even debris in it. Having the ductwork in ideal condition will save you money. If there is damage to it, the warm air that is produced, can leak through any holes or cracks. This will lead to your monthly energy bill increasing. We can also check the filter, to ensure it is clean. Based on the recommended schedule, you will need to change the filter, to ensure that the air movement is the best it can be.

Remember the Thermostat

The thermostat in your home should also be inspected. If you are looking to purchase a new one, consider a programmable one. This allows you to set the temperature based on the days of the week, and hours of the day. If your schedule is pretty consistent, you will benefit from these thermostats. They allow you to adjust the time frame of when you want the home to have the ideal air temperature. This allows the system not to run as much when you are gone. In the end, you will save money because it is not operating as much as it used to.

Checking the HVAC Filter

HVAC Filter

 

The HVAC filter system is an important component for your home. Make sure that you schedule the proper maintenance inspections needed for the air conditioner. If you are not sure how often this should be, we will gladly advise you on an appropriate schedule based on your home and lifestyle. Checking all the parts and components is a vital part of HVAC maintenance. Doing so will help increase the longevity and efficiency of your system in your home. It will also mean there is a decreased chance of an unexpected breakdown from occurring when you least expect it.

Cleaning the HVAC filter

The filter should be a part that you do not forget about. You can check the filter on a regular basis. Make sure it is clean and free of dirt and dust. This is typically collected from the pollutants that can be in the air of your home. If the filter is dirty, make sure that you clean it. Also know when the proper schedule is for replacing the filter for your air conditioner. You will also want to make sure that the filter is the correct brand and size that you need. Using a filter that is not designed for your air conditioner can cause issues. It will either damage the system, or it will no longer be efficient because it will not capture the pollutants.

Replace when needed

Filters are vital to help keep the air quality in your home the best it can be. Without them, the air may become stale and have a higher amount of dirt and dust. The filter will also help to keep the dust from the parts of the HVAC system. Always remember to have a filter in the system when it operates. Failure to do so can result in the parts wearing and becoming damaged much sooner than they typically would. If you need a new filter for the air conditioner, contact us so we can make sure the right one is installed.
