1. Check the Air FiltersOne of the most important maintenance tasks for your HVAC system is checking and replacing air filters. Air filters are responsible for trapping dust, dirt, and other debris from entering your HVAC system, which can reduce its efficiency and lead to costly repairs. For optimal performance, we recommend that air filters are replaced every month.
2. Clean the CoilsThe evaporator and condenser coils are responsible for transferring heat from the air to the refrigerant. If these coils become dirty, it can reduce the efficiency of your HVAC system and lead to higher energy costs. To prevent this, schedule Professional Maintenance with us to have your coils cleaned at least once a year.
3. Examine the DuctsThe ducts are responsible for delivering cooled or heated air throughout your home. If these ducts become blocked or damaged, it can reduce the efficiency of your HVAC system and lead to higher energy costs. To prevent this, schedule our Worry-Free Duct Cleaning™ and Worry-Free Duct Sealing™ so we can clean, seal, and repair any damage or blockages.
4. Test the ThermostatThe thermostat is responsible for controlling the temperature of your home. If it is not working properly, it can lead to higher energy costs and uncomfortable temperatures. To prevent this, it is important to test your thermostat at least once a year and replace any faulty parts.
