Maintaining your HVAC system is important. You should remember to perform preventative repairs for each season. When inspecting your HVAC system, it is important to consider the seasons to ensure that it works for each season.
HVAC Maintenance Tips
When it comes to your HVAC system, there are many things to take into consideration, such as the age of the unit, whether or not it is working at full capacity, when was the last time that you changed the air filter, and more. It’s important to consult a professional if your HVAC system does not keep your home at an appropriate temperature.
Check your AC system early in the Spring. A tune-up may be required. A professional will make sure that your AC is working properly before you hit the summer heat.
* Summer — You should change your filter at least once a month, especially if you have allergies in the house. It is even more important that you change it when summer arrives. Check the airflow, tighten electrical connections and monitor the refrigerant. Do not forget to clean the condensate drainage.
* Fall – When the fall season arrives, it’s time for another tune-up. This time you should focus on heating your home. Check the thermostat calibration. Clean the heat pump assembly. Check again for proper airflow and replace the filter. You want to eliminate allergens in the spring and fall when allergies are at their highest. Be sure to check the temperature difference between the supply and return air.
* Winter — As winter approaches, make sure you have changed all the filters, tightened up all electrical components and lubricated any moving parts. Check the condition of HVAC equipment and make sure that it is free from any debris. This will help you avoid furnace fires. Many HVAC units are located in closets which also serve as storage areas. Make sure there is enough clearance to prevent fire hazards.
