This spring, get proactive about your HVAC system. Consistent maintenance is key to keeping it in optimal condition and avoiding expensive replacements or repairs down the line.
Take some time to ensure your HVAC system is running at its best with these simple solutions to boost efficiency and effectiveness.
Change the Air Filter
One of the simplest steps homeowners can take to keep their system running efficiently and improve indoor air quality is changing the air filter. Depending on usage, the filter should be replaced every one to three months. A dirty filter can restrict airflow and make the system work harder than necessary, leading to higher energy bills and a shorter life span for your HVAC system.
Keep Debris Away from Your Outdoor Unit
Spring is a great time to clear away any growth or debris that may have accumulated around your outdoor unit. If debris blocks airflow, it can cause the unit to run less efficiently and lead to potential breakdowns. A clear area around the unit will help it run smoothly and prevent any damage to the system.
Check Refrigerant Lines
It’s important to check your refrigerant lines to ensure there are no leaks or detachments. Leaks can cause the system to lose refrigerant, leading to decreased efficiency and damage to your compressor. This job is best left to a professional, as handling refrigerant can be dangerous.
Schedule Professional HVAC Maintenance
While there are minor tasks homeowners can do to help maintain their system, scheduling professional HVAC maintenance is crucial to ensuring optimal performance.
A professional technician will inspect, clean, and tune up your system, ensuring all parts are working as they should. This will help extend the life span of your HVAC system and keep your home comfortable and energy-efficient. Consider joining a maintenance plan to ensure you never miss a tune-up.
