Summer Maintenance for your HVAC System

summer maintenance

 

If you have regular maintenance done now for your HVAC system, you can help reduce the chance of a potential issue in the long run. Any time there is an issue with the system you notice, make sure to contact us. This can include noticing an issue by an odd sound or smell, or even something working not the way it used to. We can also help to determine when regular maintenance inspections should be done with the HVAC system. You can check the air conditioner now, as one last time for summer. Also, the heater can be inspected now in order to ensure it will work properly when it comes time to turn it on.

Check the filter regularly

Also make sure that the filter is inspected regularly for your HVAC system. This will help to ensure the filter is free of any build up of dirt or dust. When this occurs, the airflow is restricted. It then causes extra strain and stress on the parts of the unit. Always have the filter in the system when it operates. Failure to do so will result in the dirt and dust getting into the system and clogging up the ductwork in the future. If you are not sure how often the filter should be inspected or changed, we can advise you on a schedule. This helps to ensure that the filter is efficient at having the air pass through it.

Remember the other parts

The ductwork should also be checked for any puncture marks or damages it might have. If this happens, it no longer allows the HVAC system to be efficient when trying to make your home comfortable. You can check some of it yourself, or we can inspect it as well for you.

 

Besides the ductwork, the thermostat should also be inspected. Sometimes and error happens with it where the set temperature is different than the actual temperature. This can be a malfunction in the thermostat. Make sure to contact us as soon as possible so we can inspect it for you.
