Preparing your HVAC for the Summer with Preventative Maintenance
It is hot! Do you have your HVAC ready? Preventative maintenance throughout the year is a wise choice to ensure that your HVAC system will be working when the time comes. If you have been waiting to get everything checked out, now is the time to do so!
Get Your HVAC Ready for the Heat
There are a few things you can do on your own before calling a technician to take a look at your HVAC in Gilbert. Make sure to ALWAYS change your air filters, this should actually be done about every month. Also, clean all of your vents to ensure your system will run efficiently.
If you have an outdoor unit, clean around the unit to gather all of the trash and debris.
Test the thermostat and the batteries to make sure it is working and then turn on your HVAC to test it. If your system doesn’t turn on, you will definitely need to call a technician right away.
This is best to do in the spring or at least before it gets too hot. Your system will be running hard in the summer months, so it is a good idea to make sure it is running properly so that you are not paying an arm and a leg in electric bills.
Even if you don’t think you have a problem with your HVAC, you should schedule preventative maintenance to just make sure everything is ok. An expert technician knows what to look for and has the right equipment to conduct a thorough inspection. They also have the knowledge to suggest to either repair or replace your system when needed. You never want to risk being without air during the summer months, especially in a state like Arizona.
During a preventative maintenance check, your technician will check the entire system like the refringent levels, electrical connectors, and wiring. They also look for damaged pipes or any issues where energy can be lost. If an issue is found, they will be able to solve the issue on the spot.
Duct cleaning can also be beneficial. This is usually best to be done by a professional, so make sure to find one in your area that can get this done fast and right.
