Your HVAC system is critical to your home. Not only does it keep you comfortable in any season, but it helps keep humidity at bay and filters the air of dust and allergens.
No one wants to spend unnecessary money on repairs for anything, much less their HVAC system. One way to make sure that doesn’t happen to you is to engage in routine HVAC maintenance.
Follow these tips for how to prevent costly repairs on your HVAC system this season:
- Clean The Filter. One of the easiest and most effective things you can do to promote the longevity of your HVAC unit is to clean the filter. You’ll want to replace the filter every 90 days for optimal usage. With a clean filter, your system does not have to work as hard or as often. Contact Climatech for assistance with cleaning your filter.
- Clean Up. Don’t forget to clear out the area around your outdoor unit. Make sure that any branches, leaves, and sticks have been cleared away.
- Get A Programmable Thermostat. If you use a programmable thermostat, the HVAC system can regulate itself so that your home is not over-heated. This will prevent your system from needing costly repairs. Contact Climatech to see how you can install a programmable thermostat.
- Open Your Curtains. When a room is getting direct sunlight, open your curtains or blinds. The natural sunlight will heat your house, which allows you to set the temperature a bit lower to give your heater a break.
Following these tips for how to prevent costly repairs on your HVAC system will set you up for success, and you should always contact a professional if you have questions or concerns regarding your HVAC system.
