End-Of-Summer HVAC Maintenance Tips
The end of summer will be here before you know it, and your air conditioner will be able to take a break. It is important to give your HVAC system some attention during this time to ensure that your unit will be ready for the upcoming winter.
Replacing Your Air Filters
If you have not replaced your air filters, you will want to do so now. Old filters will be clogged and not allow air to pass through efficiently. Clogged filters will also cause your unit to work harder than it should. This can lead to early breakdowns and your unit not functioning well this winter.
Cleaning Your Condenser Coils
When your condenser coils are clogged, they can cause your HVAC system not to work properly. Your condensate drain is a breeding ground for dirt, dust, moisture, and mold. This can quickly damage your unit and cause your equipment to wear down prematurely.
Clean Your Intakes and Vents
You will want to inspect your intakes and vents for any debris and damage. If you find debris, you will want to clean it up immediately. If you discover any signs of damage, you will want to call out an HVAC technician to help you to fix the problem.
One of the most important things you can do for your end-of-summer maintenance is to hire a professional HVAC company to come out and maintain your system. They will go through every aspect of your equipment to ensure that it is working properly. If they find an issue, they will be able to address the problem long before you have to turn your heat on. They can also take a look at your ductwork to ensure that it does not have holes or other issues.
