We don’t always think about maintaining our HVAC system… but we DEFINITELY notice when something goes wrong!
Upkeep on our home is important to all homeowners. But when it comes to our HVAC unit, we don’t always stay on top of it like we should. What exactly do we need to do? Here are a couple steps you can take to prevent the catastrophe of losing AC in the Texas heat…
Regular maintenance at home:
- Check the filters: Filters should be checked every 30 days. Most filters will last from 30 to 90 days, depending on the environment around and in your home. If you have pets that shed or live in a dusty area, plan on changing or cleaning them every 30 days, depending on the type of filter you have.
- Check the area around your outside unit: Look around your outside unit and make sure there are no leaves or mower trimmings up against it. Keep all hedges and foliage trimmed back 2 feet away. This will help keep debris from getting in and give room for air circulation.
Trust the professionals:
- Professional Maintenance: You should have your system serviced by a professional at least twice a year. Spring and fall are the routine times to service your unit; however, if something isn’t running properly, please reach out for a check up!
- During routine service checks, we will be able to check refrigerant levels, look for leaks, measure airflow, check for thermostat accuracy and more. The trained technicians are likely to be able to spot an issue before it becomes a costly problem or has you sweating in the relentless Texas summers!
