Put HVAC Maintenance on Your Resolution List
When a new year hits, we often make many different resolutions. Here in Harrisburg, NC, however, we often overlook the importance of our HVAC systems.
Your HVAC system keeps you warm in the winter, cool in the summer and can improve the quality of the air you breathe every day. It’s important to keep all the parts of these systems running efficiently.
Your HVAC Checklist for the New Year
These are the items you should put on your checklist this year:
- Adjust your thermostat
- Clean or change filters
- Schedule a seasonal maintenance check
- Dust the system with a microfiber cloth
- Listen for strange noises
Let’s discuss a few of these in more detail.
Schedule Springtime Maintenance
It’s important to have a qualified HVAC technician from All Temp Co., Inc. perform an annual maintenance check on your system. This keeps your unit running efficiently and at peak performance for years to come. The maintenance schedule fills up fast, so call a couple months in advance to ensure that you have a place on the schedule.
The Importance of Filters
The job of a filter is to block dust and other grime from entering your HVAC system. This keeps your unit working better and lasting longer. Your HVAC system blows air into your home. If that air is not clean, you are probably breathing in dust and debris.
A filter is full of all the dirt and dust we don’t want to breathe in. Cleaning the filter ensures that some of this grime does not get spread back into the air.
Adjusting Your Thermostat
It’s funny how the human body works. A temperature of 70 degrees in the winter feels just right, but 70 degrees in the summer may feel a bit too warm. That’s why it’s important to adjust our thermostat when a new season hits. The other option is to install a programmable thermostat that allows you to pre-set your seasonal preferences.
