Summer HVAC Maintenance Tips

5 Summer Maintenance Tips

Memorial day just passed which means it’s a straight shot to the summer months!

Yippie! With summer on the horizon, we’d love to share our five favorite maintenance tips that will keep you cool all summer long.

1. Replace/clean your air filter

Air filters allow your HVAC system to work efficiently and effectively. Cleaning or replacing it will make sure your HVAC can produce the coldest air to keep your home cool this summer.

2. Upgrade your thermostat

Smart thermostats like nest allow you to control your home’s temperature from your phone, allowing you to turn it on and off when you need it. Smart thermostats allow you to turn it on and off from anywhere, which could save you $ on your next energy bill–and who doesn’t like saving some cash?

3.  Clean up the area around your unit

Clear and clean out any mulch, leaves or other yard debris. When you are cleaning and prepping your yard for those summer barbeques–don’t neglect your HVAC.

4. Seal up those leaks!

Check those windows and doors to see if/where that precious cool air may be leaking! Make sure your insulation is adequate–without correct insulation, your unit will have to work much harder to cool down your home.

5. Schedule with the Professionals

HVAC systems are complex and require skilled and trained professionals to diagnose and treat issues. We will make sure your home is cool all summer long!

Maintaining HVAC equipment is essential to ensure peak performance at all times. Manufacturers advise that your HVAC system is efficiently maintained or serviced by professional techs at least once yearly. Occasionally, equipment warranties may be declined or voided if you fail to maintain or service the equipment. Having your HVAC system examined routinely also reduces the number of breakdowns experienced.

Underlying Issues
The HVAC system works more during scorching or freezing temperatures. For this reason, if there are any hidden problems with your system, it might not pop-up until the system is working its hardest for a long period. By maintaining your HVAC system on a regular basis, problems or underlying issues can be discovered and resolved instantly. This will avert any additional problems.
It is vital that you have your HVAC system serviced regularly to make sure that it is working properly. It is best to service the system before extensive use mounts pressure on it throughout the season.

Below are reasons why it is important to maintain your HVAC system regularly:

HVAC Maintenance Saves You Money
Changing the air filter is among the essential parts of preserving or maintaining HVAC systems. If your HVAC system can not take in or release air freely (breathe) it can stop working, freeze and leak water, or lead to a complete system breakdown.
HVAC coil cleaning and changing your system’s air filter is advisable by the supplier and will also help to keep your HVAC system working at peak performance and extend the life of the equipment.

Keeps you Comfortable Longer by Extending Service Life
Proper maintenance of your system on a regular basis will extend system service life. When your system gets professional yearly maintenance, it will cut down wear and tear and possible problems before they cause breakdowns.

Enhances the Efficiency
System maintenance ensures your system is working at its best, enhancing its performance. When your air conditioner, furnace, or heat pump is consuming less energy, you’ll see a savings in your utility bills.

Reduces Repair Needs
Another benefit of regular yearly maintenance is less time without heating or air conditioning. We check electrical components for wear and tear and can see when they are working harder than they should and need to be replaced before they break down. This we do during the maintenance so there is no need for a diagnostic fee. Saving you money and keeping you comfortable.
