Preventative Maintenance

Many problems with your HVAC unit can be prevented with the proper preventative maintenance program that you can perform yourself.

Start by making sure that your HVAC unit is not covered, thus restricting airflow. Also make sure that all plants and vegetation growth are trimmed away from the unit once again preventing the proper air flow to the unit.

Prepare for hot weather by always turning on your HVAC before summer starts to make sure it’s working properly. Turn it on and let it run for a few minutes making sure that it is cooling the area and that it is operating smoothly. There is nothing worse than finding that your unit isn’t working properly during a heat wave. The same goes for any anticipated cold weather.

Regularly changing air filters is a great way to keep your NVAC unit running as it is intended. Filters that aren’t clean can reduce efficiency and block air flow to your home. Keeping your filters clean can help reduce repairs and prevent freeze ups and/or overheating.

By following these tips, you can help prevent costly repairs and emergency services, especially during the unit’s initial use during the hot or cold season. It is vital that you never open your HVAC and attempt to repair any issues or damages yourself. Always call a certified service company such as Arctic Air of Sarasota for all repairs.
