Crucial Steps to Maintaining Your System
There are many tasks you can perform or have a professional perform to maintain your system. These include:
Replace Filters – Check your owner’s manual to see how often to replace the filters on your air conditioner, heater, etc. You may need to replace them more often if your property has extra occupants, smokers, pets, and other sources of contaminants. Be sure to use high-quality air filters only, as they are worth the price.
Clean Units – Ensure all outdoor units are free of leaves, pollen, and other debris. The same goes for indoor units. There should be at least two feet of clear space in these units so they can work properly.
Line Inspection – Make sure all lines going to and from your units are in good working condition. This includes refrigerant and drainage lines as well.
Humidifier Maintenance – Those of you with a humidifier should turn off the water source to the furnace humidifier in the summer to help maintain it. You may restart it and replace the filter in the fall.
Replace Carbon Monoxide Detector Batteries – This little unit can save you and your family’s life by detecting this potentially deadly gas. Replace the batteries each year and perform a maintenance check as instructed by your owner’s manual. Don’t have one? You can find a list of leading carbon monoxide detectors here.
