These are some of the things you can do to ensure your HVAC system is working properly. If you notice any problems, you can point them out to your HVAC technician when they arrive to do your spring or fall preventive maintenance check.
- Use good quality filters, and you should change them every 30-90 days; you will recoup those costs many times over in reduced energy bills. Many modern commercial HVAC units use maintenance sensors that show an alert when filters need to be changed.
- Check refrigerant lines monthly, even in the winter.
- Clear debris around outside units and keep your unit level
- It’s a good idea to replace the batteries in your carbon monoxide detector at the same time as your home’s smoke alarm. They are often one unit, so you only need to replace one set of batteries every six months.
As transitional seasons without temperature extremes, spring and fall are ideal to inspect and prepare the HVAC system for freezing winter nights or scorching summer days. Note that if the equipment is older, more frequent system inspections may be needed.
