There are a lot of questions swirling around in our world regarding preventative maintenance for your heating and air conditioning systems. In order to help you make the smartest decisions as the weather warms up, we figured we’d lay them out for you in a newsletter!
What is preventative maintenance?
Preventative maintenance involves giving your HVAC a “check-up” to ensure everything is working properly.
- Cleaning the system for proper airflow
- Checking for leaks
- Checking refrigerant levels
- Replacing the air filter
- Testing the thermostat
- Tightening any loose parts
Other aspects may be included based on your system’s needs.
What are the benefits of maintenance?
Your HVAC system is responsible for keeping you comfortable year round, especially when the temperatures reach the extremes. In order for it to keep your home safe and comfortable, it needs to be taken care of and in tip-top shape. Investing in preventative maintenance extends the life of your system and decreases the risk of any early system failures or major replacements.
Can I run my system before maintenance?
Absolutely! Preventative maintenance simply keeps your system pristine. You can run it before and after work has been done.
How often should I invest in preventative maintenance?
We recommend that a professional looks at your system at least yearly if not more to make sure it’s running well and continues to run well.
Could I do the work myself?
There are certainly things you can do on your own. For example, air filters are EASILY replaceable and have a lot to do with how well air flows through your home. You can also turn off and open up your system and clear out debris and make sure it’s clean. However, we highly recommend that a professional examines your HVAC annually.
