Let’s Clear Some Things Up
Before we jump into the nitty-gritty details and intricate components, let’s make sure there is nothing getting in the way of the HVAC system. Check around the vents, registers, and air handlers for interference. Keep furniture, carpets, and other things out and away. Also check around the outdoor components. Leaves, twigs, and shrubs can be interfering with air flow.
Change the Air Filters
The air that does get into the HVAC system is not going to be completely clean. That is where the air filters come into play. These filters catch dust and other particles in the air so your living space is filled with cleaner air. They can only hold so much dust though. They must be replaced once per season if you want to continue enjoying that clean air. Failing to remove these filters can overwork your HVAC system, shortening its life expectancy. If you need help changing the air filters, our HVAC specialists are happy to be of service.
Don’t Shut it Off
The air conditioner and heater actually use a lot of energy on start-up. It might cost more to shut off the unit and restart than to leave it on at a low setting. For instance, set your thermostat to 85 in the summer and 50 in the winter, even when you expect to be away for a few days. Keeping the indoor temperature above freezing can also reduce the risk of frozen pipes. The savings are plenty.
There are many components within the HVAC system and they each play an important role. It is important to periodically check to see these parts are working optimally and efficiently. A multi-point tune-up can make your HVAC system work more effectively. Routine maintenance is also crucial if you want to avoid unnecessary repairs and get the most out of your unit’s service life.
