DIY Maintenance Tasks for Residential HVAC Systems
When it comes to professional maintenance, our experts can provide some of the best services in Orlando! But there are plenty of things you can do all on your own between our service visits, including:
- Replace your air filter. We’re not exaggerating when we say this might be the number one thing you must do to guarantee HVAC health and improve performance. Your air filter is responsible for catching all of the dust, debris, and pollen your home naturally accumulates. Which is nice for air quality, of course, but mostly your system does this to ensure it doesn’t get bogged down with performance-harming junk. A dirty filter can lead to breakdowns and can kill the efficiency of your system. In peak seasons, be sure to replace your filter every few months (monthly is best).
- Clean vent grilles. The vents that pipe cool, comfortable air in your home can grab up all kinds of dust and debris. These should be cleaned for much the same reason as your filter—to minimize clogging and maximize clear air flow.
- Clear your exterior unit. Leaves and grass can bog up the compressor unit in a flash, leading to constricted air flow that can cause air flow problems and might even cause a leak in your system! Cleaning the exterior unit is easily done using a stiff brush and a hose.
- Check for damage. We’re not talking in-depth. Leave that to the pros! But it’s a good idea to give your system a quick look-over for signs of cracking, dents, or damage to external components to keep track of when you might need professional repair. Prevention is your best line of defense and having a care to check out your system could save you loads if you spot a problem early on.
The Importance of Professional AC Maintenance
These tasks will go a very long way in ensuring your system stays hearty and healthy. But, these should be treated as an augment of professional maintenance! Without in-depth and comprehensive maintenance from trained specialists, your system will still begin to decline over time. A true tune-up includes component care, in-depth cleaning, electrical connection checks and other services that require expert know-how and cutting-edge equipment. So be sure to set an appointment with Greens Energy Services!
Professional care should be sought twice a year for the best results—once in the spring for your air conditioner and once in the fall for your heating system. This way, you can be absolutely sure that your system is ready to go and can handle all of your comfort needs as the seasons set in!
