Heating and Air Conditioning System Maintenance



Take the following steps to increase the efficiency of your heating and cooling systems:

Air filters

Changing the air filter regularly is one of the most important (yet simple!) things a homeowner can do to prolong equipment life and reduce energy bills. Change or clean the air filter every month, especially during peak cooling and heating times. A dirty filter will reduce airflow and make the fan work harder than necessary to keep you comfortable. That is an energy-wasting issue that can be avoided with ease. A clean filter also prevents dust and dirt from being released into the furnace or air-handling unit, which can lead to expensive repairs and early failure of equipment.

Routine maintenance

Annual preventive maintenance service must be completed by a certified technician fully trained to perform an energy audit. A visual and instrument inspection is used to keep the equipment operating properly, safely, and at the best efficiency level possible to help keep energy bills lower. All HVAC systems should be checked on an annual basis, which can also satisfy warranty coverage requirements by most manufacturers.

Normally, a tune-up service will take about an hour (unless equipment problems are discovered). Your qualified technician will review findings and recommendations with you after the service visit is complete. Central air conditioning and heating system maintenance is a great way to prolong equipment life, satisfy manufacturer requirements, promote system safety, and reduce energy usage.

As much as one half of your home’s total energy use is dedicated to heating and cooling needs, which means making informed, timely decisions about your heating, ventilating, and air conditioning system (HVAC) can greatly affect both your monthly utility expenses and comfort.
