Caring for and Maintaining your HVAC System

These few simple steps can help maintain the longevity and operation of your

A/C or Heating system.

1. Keep Your HVAC Area Clear

Ensure the area surrounding your outside unit is always clean to facilitate the free flow of air. Plants and debris can grow and accumulate around your system preventing the free flow of air.  A good rule of the thumb is to keep two to three feet around your unit free and clear. A little lawn care can go a long way when it comes to ensuring the longevity of your HVAC system.

2. Schedule Seasonal HVAC Maintenance

Scheduling routine maintenance inspections with our trained technicians is highly recommended.  Routine inspections can prevent larger problems down the road.  We recommend having your system inspected at least twice a year.

Our routine maintenance checks involve an overall system checkup, inspection of the furnace, evaporator, condenser and vents.

A unit can last years longer when properly maintained.

 
3. Inspect/Clean/Change the Air Filters

Air filters are incredibly important to ensure your system runs efficiently.  Air filters are a line of defense for keeping all the internal components of the HVAC system running optimally.  For optimal performance, try to inspect, clean, or replace your air filters monthly. During the winter and summer months, air filters may need to be replaced more frequently.  Dirty air filters can prevent your HVAC system from working optimally.

 

4. Install a Programmable Thermostat

 

Programmable thermostats are excellent tools for energy-efficient heating and cooling.  They ensure your home stays comfortable as outside conditions fluctuate and can help save power when you aren't at home.  Programmable thermostats are more intelligent and accurate than mercury thermostats and give you the freedom and flexibility you need.

 

5. Clean Evaporator and Condenser Coils

 

Dirty condenser coils and evaporators can cause increases in power consumption. Make sure your condenser coils and evaporator is cleaned twice a year to ensure optimal performance. Dirty coils and evaporators will cause HVAC systems to work harder and can con potentially cause damage to the system over time.
