Fall maintenance is extremely important for HVAC systems, yet many property owners forget this vital task. At Rooter Hero Plumbing, we provide high quality residential and commercial services for property owners in Arizona and California communities including HVAC maintenance, repairs, installations and replacements. Are you looking for ways to improve the longevity and durability of your heating and cooling system? Then here are some tips for staying on top of your fall HVAC maintenance this year.
Schedule a Routine Inspection and Maintenance Service
Just like all your electrical and plumbing systems need to be inspected and serviced at least once a year, your HVAC system also requires maintenance. If your heating and cooling system is neglected, then it can significantly reduce the lifespan and reliability of your unit. On the other hand, when you make maintenance a top priority, then you can extend the longevity of your system, and catch potential problems before they cause major damage. Fall is the perfect time to schedule your inspection since temperatures have cooled from the extreme summer weather, yet the cool winter season has yet to arrive. This will allow your HVAC system to recover from being overworked during July and August, and your heating system will be properly prepared for the frosty days ahead.
Change the Air Filter
Air filters should be checked monthly and replaced or cleaned if clogged. While some filters will only need to be switched out seasonally, many households with pets or open windows may require more frequent maintenance.
Have Your Vents and Air Ducts Professionally Cleaned
It is recommended that the average household clean out their air ducts at least once every 3 to 5 years. If it has been a long time since your last air duct cleaning service, then it is important to add the task to these years fall maintenance checklist. Having clean air ducts and vents will minimize dust and debris, improve the efficiency of your HVAC system, lower utility costs and increase indoor air quality.
Clear Away Debris
For households that have an outdoor unit, be sure to keep leaves, pollen, fallen twigs and other debris away. If these materials are allowed to accumulate on your unit, then you could block the air flow and cause permanent damage to the HVAC system.
