Keep Your HVAC Unit Going Strong This Upcoming Summer
Summer HVAC Units
Summer is almost here, and while you are spring cleaning, think about how you can make sure your HVAC unit is working at peak performance. Most homeowners realize dirty or malfunctioning heating and air conditioning units are not working efficiently and increase the utility bills. Save money and hassles by making sure your unit is going strong and will keep your house at the optimum temperature this summer.
Check your Filter
One of the easiest ways to make sure your HVAC unit is working properly is to check the filters. You might have more than one – so be sure to look at each of them and make sure they are clean and in good condition. You can choose from disposable or permanent filters and they need to be maintained frequently. If you have pets in the home, or someone in the family has allergies, clean filters can make a big difference.
Clean Air Ducts
Another way to maintain your unit is to make sure your ductwork is cleaned properly. Although you might not need to do this every year, it makes sense to call in an HVAC Professional to assess your ducts and determine if they can benefit from a cleaning. Be sure to call in a qualified professional to do the work – it’s not something you should try to do yourself or you might make the problem worse.
Check the Parts
Annual HVAC maintenance is necessary and will ensure your unit is blowing cold air when the temperatures are soaring and is keeping the air temperature warm inside when it’s cold outside. Qualified professionals can check the motor, blower, and drain line to make sure there aren’t any leaks or damage. Cleaning the coils will also make the unit work more efficiently and you might need to check and top off refrigerant levels. Connections should also be looked at to make sure nothing is frayed or loose.
Your heating and air conditioning unit is an important part of your home and making sure it is working well will make your life easier and cozy. Before the busy season of summer BBQ’s and family get-togethers, call an HVAC Professional to come out and check your system and perform the required maintenance. Not only could it save you money on your utility bills, but it will ensure you are comfortable all summer long. Contact Master Mechanical today to schedule an important.
