Your heating and air conditioning system plays a vital role in maintaining the comfort level at home, regardless of the season. With advanced AC units provided by All Climate Heating & Air Conditioning, a significant increase in system efficiency and home comfort has been observed. But as homeowners, you hold a certain level of responsibility for preserving this comfort. Using these handy DIY tips, you can ensure your system runs smoothly throughout the year.
Firstly, you’ll always want to keep the exterior of your system clean. Dirt, leaves, and debris may collect on the outside of your system over time, potentially causing it to overheat and break down. A simple DIY tip includes inspecting your unit once monthly and gently cleaning away any build-up with a soft brush or cloth.
Next, let’s talk about filters. These essential components ensure your air exchange is clean and safe to breathe. We recommend inspecting and replacing these filters every 30-90 days as part of a regular maintenance routine.
Another significant part of your system is the condensation drain. If you’ve noticed decreased efficiency in your air conditioning, the condensation drain could be to blame. Check this monthly for any blockages and clean it out as needed.
Now, let take a look on thermostat. Is your home heating or cooling unevenly? Your thermostat could need recalibration. Consider upgrading to a programmable thermostat if you haven’t already, a smart device that can potentially save you hundreds of dollars in energy costs each year.
As for your ductwork, ensure regular inspection. Dust and debris in your ductwork can decrease system efficiency and even contribute to health problems. Try shining a flashlight into your registers to inspect for any debris, and consider having your ductwork professionally cleaned if necessary.
Last, but certainly not least, schedule regular inspections. Having a licensed professional like those at All Climate Heating & Air Conditioning inspect your system annually will ensure that all components are performing their best and identify any potential issues before they become significant problems.
Remember, performing these routine task can significantly increase the lifespan of your system and maintain the exceptional comfort level provided. Take care of your heating and air system, and it’ll take care of you.
Please note, while DIY maintenance can help your unit run more efficiently, some tasks should be left for the professionals. If you find physical damage or your system is not performing correctly even after conducting these tips, it’s time to call the pros to avoid any further damage.
