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.
