What can you, the home owner, do to keep your system running at peak performance for years to come? There are a few basic things that can help keep you from waking up in the cold one January night, or sweltering through August without proper cooling.

 

Change Your Filters.

Why change your filters?  This is one overlooked part of HVAC maintenance. The filters in your return vent are what keep dirt and dust from being drawn into your system, lowering its efficiency to the point of a breakdown. Clean or change your filters once a month or as needed, and maintain your system according to the manufacturer’s recommendations. This inexpensive procedure will pay for itself immediately.

Preventive Maintenance.

Like all heating and cooling systems, proper maintenance is key to efficient operation. Dirty filters, coils, and fans reduce airflow through your system. Reduced airflow decreases your system performance and can damage your system’s compressor. Clean outdoor coils whenever they appear dirty; occasionally, turn off power to the fan and clean it; remove vegetation and clutter from around the outdoor condenser unit. Clean the supply and return registers within your home, and straighten their fins if bent or if you prefer, JUST CALL US! Our Preventative Maintenance Plan assures your family’s comfort and safety and we offer plans for every budget.

Duct Cleaning.

Take precaution to protect your family, your pets, and your home from contamination. This simple maintenance procedure can dramatically help with the air quality in your home.  The daily buildup of dust and grime accumulates in your duct system, and as your system is running, it simply re-circulates that dust. The use of air cleaners alone cannot ensure your family adequate air quality.

Allergies or Asthma

For those with allergies or asthma, significant relief can be achieved from products such as UV Germicidal lights, humidifiers, dehumidifiers, electronic air cleaners, and purifiers. These all have a role in the quality of the air in your home, not just the temperature. Call us today for information on indoor air quality or visit our our products page.
