5 Easy HVAC Maintenance Tips For Homeowners

Your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system in Tyler should not let you down. To ensure it’s up and running all year round, Maddox shares these easy HVAC maintenance tips

  1. Change the air filter.

As a rule of thumb, you should replace your air filter every 1-3 months depending on how often you use your heating or air conditioning system. It’s a wise bet to call your local HVAC technician and have your air filter inspected and replaced, if necessary.

  1. Check the wiring regularly.

It pays off to give your HVAC a regular visual checkup to ensure that it’s up and running. Don’t forget to turn the power of the unit off before checking the writing. Open the access panel and look for blackened or burned wires. If there are, bring in a pro to replace them.

  1. Invest in a programmable thermostat.

Is your home still using the traditional type of thermostat? Now is the right time to switch to a programmable version. A programmable thermostat allows homeowners to schedule when their heating unit turns on and helps to control utility bills.

  1. Inspect the condenser unit fan.

The condenser unit fan, which is located outdoor, can be prone to damage caused by dirt and debris slipping through the slits. When the fan gets damaged, the efficiency of your air conditioning unit is adversely affected. If there are problems with the fans, swap them out right away.

  1. Sign up for maintenance.

Annual HVAC maintenance is essential to keep your heating and cooling equipment in tip top shape all year round. Your local HVAC technician conducts a regular inspection of your unit and fixes problems before they get worse.
