Even if you don’t realize it, your HVAC system is always there for you. That’s why timely maintenance matters so much – you don’t want it to break down when you least expect it. While you might initially balk at the costs of such services, you’ll be thankful for making such a prudent investment in the long run. Allow your current self to look out for your future self – and your bank account!
Arrange for Seasonal Tune-Ups
One of the easiest ways to extend your HVAC’s service lifespan is to keep it well-maintained. What does this entail, exactly? Seasonal inspections and tuneups can make an enormous difference. Even if you couldn’t schedule one this past spring (for the summer), there is still ample time to prepare for fall and winter!
Switch Out Older Air Filters
Another solution for optimizing your residential HVAC unit is to remove old air filters. Then take a closer look at them; if they are disposable, get rid of them. On the other hand, if they are reusable, rinse them out and put them back once they are dry. This precaution can help prevent the accidental release of mold spores and mildew particles back into your indoor air supply.
Change the Fan Settings
Changing the fan settings also helps. Take a few minutes to think about how many ceiling fans your house has – and then contemplate where they are located. As good as ceiling fans are, using the “on” or “circulate” function can lighten the workload you expect of your HVAC system.
Confirm the Condition of the Condenser Component
The condenser is too important to ignore. So although it’s easy to do, don’t fall for this trap. In other words, verify that the condenser and other associated components are working properly. The condenser should be somewhere outside. Since it is an outdoor element of your home’s HVAC network, it’s made to endure harsh weather conditions. Even so, adverse weather can take its toll. Hail, debris, and vegetation can damage the condenser. That simple act of TLC lets it hum along just fine!
