To make sure your home or commercial HVAC system works without interruption, you will need to carry out regular maintenance. Some things can be done by home owners, such as checking and changing AC filters. However, there are other tasks such as checking electrical wiring and repairing or cleaning the ducts which should usually be left to a professional HVAC contractor. To learn more about the service we offer for maintenance on all heating and air conditioning systems, get in touch today.
Why Bother With HVAC Maintenance?
HVAC systems, like any other machine, need regular checks and maintenance to make sure they continue to work. Just as you would take your car for a check every now and again, and would expect to change the oil or filters, your HVAC system needs inspection and servicing at least every year, too. Failing to do so could mean your energy bills rise as your system is less effective. Your HVAC system is unlikely to last as long as it should without regular maintenance, and you could find that you have sudden failures in your air conditioning or heating systems, making your home or business unpleasant to be in.
How Often Should I Have My HVAC System Inspected?
Although a good, and properly installed HVAC system can last for many years, it will require regular checking, servicing and cleaning. All HVAC systems should be checked at least once a year, although a good schedule would be to have your heating system serviced in the fall before use, and the air conditioning system inspected for preventative maintenance needs in the spring before the weather starts to heat up too much. Leaving an HVAC system without regular maintenance can mean that the system suffers damage and ultimately fails - and replacing an HVAC system prematurely is much more expensive than carrying out regular checks.
What Maintenance Can I Do Myself?
As a home or business owner, there are some regular checks and maintenance on your HVAC system that you can do yourself. However, leaving the professionals to the bigger or more complex tasks is usually a smart idea. A basic set of homeowner checks includes monthly visual checks on the AC filters, with replacements switched in as needed, and making sure that the outside HVAC units around your property are not covered in any way by yard debris, grass cuttings and so on. You’ll also need to check that the external units have adequate clearance from the home, and aren’t blocked by bushes or other foliage.
