TOP 5 MAINTENANCE TASKS FOR HVAC SYSTEMS

Maintaining your HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) system is crucial for its longevity and efficient operation. Here are the top 5 maintenance tasks:

 

1. Regular Filter Replacement: Dirty filters restrict airflow, reducing efficiency and causing the system to work harder. Replace disposable filters every 1-3 months, depending on usage. For reusable filters, clean them according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

 

2. Clean Condenser and Evaporator Coils: Over time, dirt and debris accumulate on the coils, hindering heat transfer. Clean the outdoor condenser coils and indoor evaporator coils annually. Use a soft brush or vacuum to remove dirt, but be gentle to avoid damaging the fins.

 

3. Check and Clean Drainage: Clogged condensate drains can cause water damage and affect humidity levels. Inspect the condensate drain regularly and clear any blockages using a stiff brush or a mixture of bleach and water.

 

4. Inspect and Lubricate Moving Parts: Moving parts such as fan motors and bearings should be lubricated annually to reduce friction and wear. Check for any signs of wear and tear and replace components as needed.

 

5. Professional Inspection and Tune-Up: Schedule annual maintenance with a qualified HVAC technician, like those of Davis Heating and Cooling. They will perform a thorough inspection, checking for leaks, proper refrigerant levels, electrical connections, and overall system performance. They can also tune the system for optimal efficiency and identify potential issues before they become major problems.

 

By staying proactive with these maintenance tasks, you can ensure your HVAC system operates efficiently, saving energy and money while extending its lifespan. Reach out to us today to us to schedule an appointment.
