As the seasons change, so do your HVAC maintenance requirements. Taking proactive steps to prepare and maintain your equipment is critical to helping extend the lifespan of systems and maintain peak efficiency. Here are some items you’ll want to consider as we roll into the warmer months.
Changing Out Air Filters
Air filters that are clogged with dust and debris can contribute to poor air quality. If air has trouble passing through the filter, the system needs to work harder, causing additional strain on the equipment that can lead to more energy consumption.
Cleaning Outdoor Condenser Units
Debris, grass, and other materials can block airflow, leading to inefficient operation and stress to the HVAC equipment. Make sure the area is clear and no vents are blocked. Coils and fins should also be cleaned.
Indoor Component Cleaning
Blower fans, evaporator coils, and control panels should be thoroughly cleaned, and moving parts such as fans and motors should be lubricated.
Check Refrigerant Levels
Your AC system should have the right charge, or amount of refrigerant, to capture and release indoor heat. The system should also be checked for any leaks.
