The HVAC system in your home ensures you are comfortable at both the highest and lowest temperatures of the year. But, with our busy lives, it’s easy to forget that your air conditioner and heating systems are complicated… and they need to be maintained regularly.
HVAC preventative maintenance will make sure that your system is in good working condition to keep you comfortable throughout the year. Here’s a few helpful pointers for keeping your heating and cooling equipment in tip-top shape for years to come.
CLEANING YOUR AIR VENTS
While we’re on the topic of cleaning that can benefit your HVAC system, let’s talk about the vents where air is pushed out into the house. The vents that you see in the house are going to be exposed to more dust and debris than the ducts of your system, which is exactly why you want to take some time to clean them. By wiping down the exterior of the vents every couple of weeks, you can significantly reduce the amount of debris and dust that makes its way into your air ducts, thus improving the quality of air for a longer period of time.
CHANGING THE FILTER
The HVAC system in your home not only ensures the air temperature is at a comfortable level, but it also enhances the air quality within your home. It does this by filtering all of the air that makes its way through the unit to then be heated or cooled. This is happening every time that your unit is working, so it isn’t too surprising that the air filter in your AC or furnace is going to need replacing!
We suggest replacing the filters of your system once per month, though this can vary by filter type, it’s a good rule of thumb. This can also vary based on the number of people within the house or office space, whether there are animals in the household, or if there are any individuals with allergies living in the home. In those instances, you may find that you need to replace the filter more frequently.
KEEP AN EYE ON YOUR OUTDOOR UNITS
This is a very simple tip, but it’s a powerful one. Keeping an eye on your outdoor HVAC units, such as an AC condenser, can help prevent problems before they start. From cleaning up any debris around your AC unit to listening for any strange noises that the equipment might be making, this can help key you in when something needs to be investigated. If you do hear any strange noises coming from your equipment — or if you notice any other visible issues — please call us at 941-766-0975 or contact us online to schedule a repair visit!
ROUTINE AIR CONDITIONER OR HEATING SYSTEM TUNE UPS
One of our main services here at AA Temperature Services — AC tune ups and heating system tune ups — is designed to keep your HVAC equipment running smoothly and to help save you from repairs that could have been avoided.
It’s true that getting your air conditioner tuned up costs a little bit of money, but the truth is that it will almost certainly save money in the long run. Regular tune ups not only keep your equipment running longer, but helps avoid those last minute repairs by cleaning up things that can cause issues later on.
This preventative maintenance is also available on an HVAC maintenance plan. These maintenance plans are designed to help you save even more on your annual visits, plus we remind you when your AC or other HVAC unit is due for service… so you don’t have to remember! In addition, you receive an additional 10% savings on repairs you may need throughout the year. To learn more about our maintenance plans or to sign up, give us a call or contact us online!
