The HVAC system in your home is important. You will want to make sure it is inspected and checked on a regular basis. When you are not sure how often this should be done, make sure to contact us. We will provide you a schedule of when certain maintenance tasks should be done. Also it is important to have these performed on a regular schedule. When these tasks are done, then the system can operate as correctly as possible. If you do notice an issue between visits, make sure to contact us and we can come and inspect the source of the issue for you. Having it properly maintained will help improve the longevity of it as well.
Checking the filter is also very important. When the HVAC operates, it pulls air in and that passes through the filter of the system. Over time, the filter will become clogged and will eventually need to be replaced. By checking it on a regular basis, you can help ensure it is clean and clear. Sometimes you can vacuum the filter, but when it is needed, a full replacement is recommended for the filter. If you are not sure what type of filter you need, we will be able to recommend the right one.
You should also be aware of any odd noises or sounds that come from the unit. Clunks, squealing, or grinding are all signs of an issue with the unit. These noises may come from the unit itself, from the register or vents, or even from the ductwork. As noises are a sign of an issue, you will want to make sure you contact us so we can do a complete inspection of the HVAC system. This should also include all the components of it as well. By keeping it properly maintained, you will help save money in the long run. The unit will also last as long as possible when you keep it maintained.
