As a homeowner, regular maintenance of your HVAC system is essential for keeping it running optimally and avoiding costly repairs. With a few simple DIY tips, you can maintain your heating and air conditioning systems yourself and save on both time and money.
First and foremost, you should always make sure to regularly clear your air filter. Dirty filters can cause clogs in your HVAC system, reducing air flow and leading to a decrease in efficiency. Be sure to check your air filter every month and change it as necessary. You should also check the condenser coils and evaporator coils in your air conditioning system every month. Cleaning the condenser coils can help to improve air flow and reduce energy consumption.
In addition to cleaning the air filter and coils, you should also inspect the system’s ductwork for any signs of damage. Be sure to look for cracks, holes, or any other signs of wear and tear. If there are any problems, you should contact Payne Air Conditioning & Heating immediately to get them fixed.
If you have a furnace, it is also important to regularly inspect the pilot light. If the flame is yellow or orange rather than blue, this could indicate a carbon monoxide leak, which can be extremely dangerous. Contact Payne Air Conditioning & Heating right away if you notice any signs of a leak.
Finally, if your heating and air conditioning systems are reaching the end of their lifespan, it may be time to consider replacing them.
