Your heating and air conditioning system takes care of you 365 days a year. Are you taking care of it in return? Preventative HVAC maintenance is critical. Take a look at some simple tips you should be doing.
Tip #1: Change the Air Filter
One of the easiest and least expensive ways to maintain your HVAC system is by changing the air filter. The filter works to trap dust, dirt, pollen, dander, and other pollutants before they move through your heating and cooling equipment. Not only does the filter prevent damage to your HVAC unit, but it also helps your system run more effectively and efficiently, and it keeps the air in your home cleaner.
Tip #2: Keep it Clean
Keeping the area around your heating and air conditioning equipment clean and clear helps it run as it should. Whether it’s the indoor or outdoor components, it’s critical the keep dirt and debris away.
Tip #3: Schedule Routine Maintenance
While you can change the filter and clean around your equipment, one of the best ways to keep your HVAC system in tip-top shape is with twice-yearly maintenance by an HVAC technician. A professional will inspect, clean, test, and calibrate your system to ensure it runs as it should, cutting down on the potential for issues and the need for costly repairs.
Aside from changing your filters every three to six months, it’s a good idea to leave any HVAC maintenance to the pros. For the best service and heating and air conditioning experience you can count on, contact the team at H.H. Hovey Heating and Cooling, Inc.
