Home Maintenance Tips to Keep Your HVAC System Running Smoothly

For most homeowners, regular maintenance of their heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system is an important part of ensuring the system is running as efficiently and reliably as possible. Here are a few home maintenance tips to keep your system in top condition:

1. Change the Air Filters: It’s important to regularly change the air filters in your HVAC system to ensure it’s running efficiently. Dirty air filters can reduce airflow, causing the system to work harder and consume more energy, costing you more money in the long run. Be sure to change the filters at least every three months.

2. Clean the Outdoor Unit: It’s important to regularly clean the outside unit of your HVAC system to make sure it’s not blocked by dirt, dust, leaves, or grass clippings. Blocked air intake can reduce the system’s cooling power, forcing it to work harder and use more energy.

3. Check the Refrigerant Levels: Refrigerant is the fluid that circulates inside the coils of your air conditioning system. If the refrigerant is leaking or low, it can reduce the system’s cooling power and make it work harder to keep your home cool. It’s important to have an HVAC technician check your system’s refrigerant levels at least once a year.

4. Have an HVAC Technician Check the System: It’s always important to have an experienced HVAC technician check your system twice a year, at the start of summer and winter. During these checkups, the technician will perform a thorough inspection and cleaning of the system, and make any necessary repairs or adjustments to keep it running as efficiently as possible.
