It is critical that you keep your HVAC system clean in order for it to function properly. Without the proper care, your HVAC system can break down and result in discomfort and costly repairs. To avoid such issues and to maintain proper heating and air conditioning, there are five tips that you should implement.
Your outside unit will attract debris. Over time, these particles can begin to block the system and cause it to become dysfunctional. Therefore, you should periodically remove such debris. It can also be quite helpful to trim any foliage around the unit and try to keep it at least 18 inches away.
2. Hose it Down
Along with removing debris manually, it is also good to hose the unit down. This will help to remove the fine particles that may get stuck on the unit.
3. Change The Filter
It is suggested that the HVAC filter be changed every month. As the heating and air conditioning unit is in use, it collects quite a large amount of particles over time. If not exchanged, those particles may block air flow and begin to release back into the air.
4. Keep The Registers Open
For the optimum flow of air it is important that the supply and return registers not be blocked. Periodically, take time to check these registers and make sure that they are not being covered or interrupted by curtains, rugs or other furniture items.
5. Have it Inspected
There are certain tasks that you will need to have completed by a trained professional. In fact, in order to maintain the warranty on some HVAC machines it is required that you have it serviced at least once a year. These inspections are even more important for maintaining older machines.
