To prevent costly repairs on your HVAC unit and to ensure it runs efficiently and effectively, especially during warm summer months, preventative maintenance is always highly encouraged.
Preventative maintenance on your HVAC unit can keep your system running all season long, avoiding major breakdowns and saving you money.
When is Preventative Maintenance Needed?
It is ideal to receive maintenance on your HVAC unit twice a year. However, if you think your HVAC unit is not working properly, you should call a technician right away to inspect the issue.
Some issues are not as obvious as others so there are things you can do to ensure your HVAC unit is working properly.
Be alert and pay attention.
Be aware of unusual sounds coming from your unit that you are not familiar with. A noisy unit could mean there is an issue, and it could grow into a more expensive and serious issue if not fixed.
Replace all air filters routinely. It is usually recommended to change filters every 30 to 90 days. While doing this, check for major dirt pileup or clogs. Make this a routine along with cleaning all air vents. If vents are dirty and obstruct airflow, it could make your HVAC unit work overtime.
Check outside unit
Check on your unit outside and clean any dirt and debris surrounding it. This means freeing the area of leaves and twigs, cleaning off any dirt, and making sure it is secure during storms.
We know life can get busy and things can easily be forgotten, but scheduling routine preventative maintenance routine can prevent 90 percent of repairs and extend the life of your HVAC unit.
Make sure to schedule preventative maintenance on your HVAC unit right before the summer month and right after. This will ensure your unit works correctly during all seasons, even after being off or running all season.
