People use to schedule a maintenance on their HVAC system to prepare for the hottest seasons. However, even if in your location you don't suffer of extreme winters, HVAC systems still have to work hard to maintain a comfortable temperature in your home when the weather is cold.
It is important to have a well defined preventative maintenance program to examine and get ready your HVAC system for the upcoming seasons. Each inspection to your system will allow the technicians to make recommendations for upgrades or minor repairs that may be needed to optimize your system. This will help you to save money in the long run and will allow your system to perform efficiently all year long. Maintenance checks allow for technicians to detect small issues that could potentially cause greater issues within your HVAC system.
Make sure your filters are fresh and replaced for every new season. During the summer the amount of pollen and dust increases, so it is recommended to have your HVAC system filter changed before and after the summer season. HVAC filters tend to become clogged and cause the system to work harder to keep the aire circulation in your home. Along with changing HVAC filters, it is also recommended to change your home air filters as they also build up with pollen and dust. A fresh filter means that there’s no dirty stuff coming out of your system into your home, and also allows the HVAC to work more efficiently.
Clean your home vents and air ducts and you will improve the efficiency of your HVAC system. Consider using a humidifier to increase moisture in the air, this will help to keep your home or building comfortable. Remove protective covers from outdoor HVAC units before use to prevent restriction of airflow and limiting of heat transfer. Another important matter is the examination of the coolant lines on the HVAC system to work properly. If your technician finds something damaged, it is important to be replaced. A damaged insulation lead to loss of cooling power in the HVAC unit.
With smart thermostats you will be able to regulate your home temperature automatically and even remotely no matther the fluctuation of the outdoor weather.
Remember our advice to be proactive and take care of your HVAC unit in advance.
