Even if your HVAC system is rather new, and it seems to be running just fine, it needs regular maintenance and inspections. It will allow you to make sure your HVAC system works efficiently, and that you’re getting value for the money you paid for it. Also the safety of your home and your family depends on it.
If you have one unit to cool and heat your home, you should perform a maintenance check twice a year, in the spring and in the fall. Separate systems also require seasonal check. Spring is the best time for cooling system, while fall is the best time to have your furnace checked.
Here are some useful HVAC maintenance tips:
– Frequent clean and change of air filters
Change your filters often in your central air conditioner, furnace and heat pump. It may influence on your energy costs. Also dirty filters can damage your equipment, leading to early failure.
– Seasonal HVAC maintenance schedule
Create a schedule to not miss the time of the next inspection. Also it may be useful when contacting any professional service.
– Clear and well maintained area around the HVAC system
Keep the area free of debris. Also you should take care of nearby plants, and trim shrubs near your air conditioning unit to ensure proper air flow and circulation and avoid equipment breakdown.
– Clean evaporator and condenser coils
According to the U.S. Department of Energy “a dirty condenser coil can increase energy consumption by 30%”. Also it has bad influence on the entire system and can lead to the breakdown.
