As the seasons change and it gets colder out it becomes more important to make sure your HVAC is performing at its best. An HVAC that is not running efficiently can lead to higher energy bills and shorten the lifespan of the heating / cooling unit. If your heating system is making louder noises than usual it’s best not to procrastinate. Many times this is a simple fix when caught early. When the weather changes, so does your HVAC’s needs, making transitional seasons like fall and spring the perfect time to schedule an HVAC checkup and have your unit inspected in Maryland.
HVAC units with regular maintenance ensures that your HVAC will be running properly. It can also prolong your HVAC’s life because then we are able catch and fix possible issues earlier on. Making an appointment with us for a check is important, but there are also easy tasks you can do on your own to make sure things run smoothly. Your HVAC’s air filters should be changed at a maximum of once a month, and a minimum of every three months. Along with this, you can also clean the vents. Maintenancing your filters and vents allows air to flow more easily throughout the house, meaning the HVAC does not have to work as hard.
Another thing you can do depending on your type of HVAC is check on your outdoor HVAC unit and pick up any yard waste that may be on or surrounding the unit. Heavy rains and storms can drop limbs, impacting the outdoor unit, erode and undermine the base foundation as well as dent, crimp or break electrical and lines. Leaves are sure to find their way to your unit and if left unchecked can at very least create a place for mold and mildew to grow.
The same goes for your furnace, make sure that clutter is cleared and items are not stored too closely nearby. As summer can be a hurried time of year and vents/returns can be covered in a time of haste. Creating an open area around your AC and furnace ensures they have enough space to run properly. At the end of the day, the easiest thing you can do for peace of mind is to call us so we can double check that everything is running correctly, efficiently and safely.
