Most of the time, we don’t think of the middle of summer as a good time to do HVAC maintenance, but in reality, it can be an important month to take stock of your HVAC system. Not only has your heating & cooling system being running full speed ahead during the summer months, but you could also need to do some routine things to ensure that it keeps running efficiently.
- Regular Filter Changes – Keeping up with routine filter changes will go a long way towards ensuring that your HVAC system is running efficiently. It is generally recommended that HVAC filters be changed every 3 months, and more frequently depending on how you use your heating and cooling system and the type of filter you choose. Take a moment to check your filters to see if they need replacing.
- Set the Thermostat – Did you know that cranking the thermostat up and down can be taxing on your HVAC system? One easy HVAC maintenance tip is to set the thermostat and let your HVAC system do the work. If you still find that you aren’t getting enough cool air, you might consider investing in a dehumidifier to help cut the moisture in your home.
- Keep Vents Clear – While it may be tempting to cover vents with furniture and other items, in truth, this can put your HVAC system on overload. When it comes to HVAC maintenance, make sure your vents are clear and move items that could be blocking them, so you get the most from your air conditioning. You may also want to schedule vent cleaning with your HVAC professionals at this time of year.
