Back-to-School Maintenance For Your Home

August 15, 2017 | Blog

Back-to-School Maintenance For Your HomeAre you ready for back-to-school fun? We’re sure you are, but the truth is that your home may not be. Over the summer, you’ve probably run your HVAC equipment good and hard, so it’s time for a little maintenance. The good news is that we’ve done the footwork for you and come up with five quick actions to follow:

Schedule Annual Maintenance

Every homeowner needs to understand the importance of an annual check-up of his or her HVAC equipment. Hiring a professional technician to look at the system and advise any fixes will keep your equipment running at optimal performance for many years.

Check the Filters

Whether you replace your air filters or have invested in the washable kind, the end of the summer is the perfect time to check. Filters usually need to be switched out or cleaned every 1-3 months, so if you’ve been lax this summer, now’s the time. A clean filter will help your HVAC equipment operate smoothly, which will lower your monthly utility bills.

Take a Look at the Outside Unit

It doesn’t take much for the outside unit of your HVAC system to get clogged up by dirt, leaves, and other debris. When this occurs, the efficiency and effectiveness of your indoor cooling will suffer. Be sure to check the outside unit, physically remove any debris you can by hand, and then spray it down with a hose to get anything left over.

Check the Ducts

Over time, the ducts that carry the conditioned air throughout your home can develop holes and tears. This will cause you to waste money on energy that isn’t helping your household one bit. Sealing any leaks you find is a pretty simple task, but you may want to call on the help of a professional HVAC technician if the job ends up being too much for you to handle.
