Replace Air Filters
Over time, dust and dirt can clog up your HVAC system’s filters, blocking air from entering the unit. As a result, your device will struggle to heat or cool your home, putting strain on the internal machinery and increasing your monthly running costs. The average HVAC filter should be changed every 90 days or so, but homes with pets or allergy issues should do more frequent filter changes.
Check Refrigerant Levels
Air conditioners use refrigerant to cool the air in your rooms. If refrigerant levels are too low, your A/C unit will struggle to control your home’s indoor temperature. A skilled technician has the advanced tools and training required to evaluate your air conditioner and ensure your system is operating at maximum efficiency.
HVAC systems often rely on ductwork to pump cool or warm air throughout the home. Vents covering these ducts can become clogged with dust, debris, and animal hair. This can inhibit airflow to certain rooms in your house. During spring, you should clean your vents using a damp cloth to ensure you always have access to consistent cooling.
