System Care Tips

For A Better HVAC System

You don’t have to be an expert technician to care for your HVAC system. There are small things that you can do and keep an eye out for that will make all the difference.

  • Manage Your Air Vents: If you want to reduce energy usage or costs, consider closing off vents to spaces that you do not wish to heat/cool. Conversely, you should make sure that your vents are open in areas where you do want air to flow.
  • Replace Filters: Filters collect dust and help to clean the air circulating your home. If these get too full, they will no longer be effective. These should be checked on every few months or so and replaced when full.
  • Take Note of Sounds & Smells: An efficient and properly running system is one that you take no notice of. If your system starts to produce an odor when running or you hear something out of the ordinary, chances are that something is amiss.
  • Have a Maintenance Routine: We recommend having a tech come out to your home before winter and summer each year, as these are the times each year when you are most likely to rely on your HVAC system. It’s better to find an issue with your unit before you actually need to turn it on for the season.
  • Clean the Outside Unit: It is easy to forget about the outside unit of your HVAC system. It is just as important as your indoor unit and requires monthly maintenance as well. Check it and clear any twigs, leaves, dirt, and other debris.
  • Keep an Eye on the Condensate Line: Your HVAC system’s condensate line won’t get clogged if you do annual fall and spring tune-ups. However, keep an eye out and make sure that water is not pooling around your furnace, heat pump, or air conditioner. If there is water pooling around any of those things, your drain line may be clogged.
