As we’re sure you’ve probably already heard, maintenance is a necessary process that must be completed on a regular basis for all of your home’s major appliances. But why? Well, without it, there is a good chance that you will have to replace some of your most expensive purchases sooner than typically expected.
Specifically focusing on your HVAC unit, it is generally recommended that you have your system inspected by a professional in the fall and of course, the spring, so that the proper maintenance can be completed. But until you are able to make an appointment, here are a few things you can do on your own in the meantime:
- Walk around the exterior of your unit and make sure that there is nothing within its path for at least two feet on all sides. That means clearing vegetation and any other debris and even outdoor furniture.
- Make sure that the ground around your unit still stands solid and firm. Especially if your unit is resting on something other than just the ground, you’ll want to make sure everything is still in its place and holding up properly.
- Look into a better filter for your system. If you are unsure of what type of filter you should be looking for, a professional like Airtech of Stamford can assist you when visiting your home. Regardless, though, it is a good idea to at least put together a schedule for changing or cleaning the filter so that you never go too long without doing so.
