Your HVAC is a complicated machine and while it’s pretty durable, it still needs some TLC every now and then. These tips and tricks, brought to you by Diaz Services, can help ensure your HVAC stays up and running for years to come.
Tip #1: Get Routine Professional Maintenance
Because your HVAC is so complicated to handle, you won’t be able to do all of the maintenance on your own. Routine maintenance from a professional HVAC technician will:
- Find issues early on, preventing serious ones from happening later
- Make quick repairs
- Inspect the unit for damages or needed replacements
- Make sure everything is working properly
- Determine if you need to upgrade your unit
There are many things a professional can help you with that you may not be able to do on your own. Because of this, you should schedule routine maintenance regularly throughout the year. Now, let’s talk about things you can do on your own.
Tip #2: Don’t Neglect Your Unit
While you may not have an eye for finding every single thing that can go wrong with an HVAC, there are still warning signs to keep an eye out for. For example, if your unit is making strange sounds, isn’t performing as well as it used to, or strange smells are emanating from your vents, you may have problem. These tell-tale signs should not be ignored. Also, if your unit is outside and on the ground, be sure to check up on it after experiencing crazy weather in El Paso, like hail or heavy rain. Plus, the sun can do quite a bit of damage to it. Keeping your eye on it can help find issues early on.
Tip #3: Keep it Clean
Many times, when an HVAC is giving you trouble, it’s because it’s dirty! Dirt, grime, and dust can all put your HVAC through a world of hurt. Be sure to change out the filters regularly and ensure that the vents in your home are free of dirt, dust, hair, pet fur, and carpet fibers. This will help keep your HVAC running smoothly while also making the air in your home cleaner.
Tip #4: Stick to a Schedule
The important part about routine maintenance is the routine. You’ll want to stick to a schedule to ensure your HVAC is maintained well.
