HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) units are just like their regular AC counterparts in the sense that they require servicing and maintenance for optimal performance. Suppose you follow a checklist of maintenance items. In that case, you can rest assured that your HVAC climate control will work fine without any significant malfunctions for many years to come.
USE ONLY THE BEST QUALITY FILTERS AVAILABLE IN THE MARKET
Acquiring a new and high-efficiency filter might seem like a costly solution to a non-existent problem. However, today’s HVAC filters are the latest in cutting-edge technology, and they have been equipped with electrostatic energy. This means that they can effectively suck even the smallest particles of dust and allergy-causing pollen grains.
Another reason why you should replace the filters in your climate control system because they tend to get clogged very quickly. This makes sense because they are the very first line of defense against the ingress of foreign matter into both the HVAC system as well as your home.
After all, this is their primary function. They should be replaced after every six months of prolonged usage. But if you live in an arid and dusty climate, you should consider changing them more often. At least once every three months.
CLEAN THE AREA AROUND THE EXTERNAL UNITS
The external AC units and the heat pumps must have at least two feet of ground clearance so that they will be able to function correctly. The area beneath and around them must be regularly swept clean of dirt, dust, leaves, and other debris. You should make sure that this is done after every storm.
Once that is done, you should methodically examine all the refrigerant gas pipes, the ducts of your climate control system as well as insulation lines. It is essential to check the main power lines since a thoroughly frayed wire, or broken plug is a critical fire hazard. If there are any damaged wires, you should call the HVAC repair and maintenance experts to come and take a look.
Carbon monoxide is also known as the silent killer. And with good reason, because this highly deadly gas is both colorless and odorless. In an enclosed climate control system, it can prove to be fatal.
It is imperative that you thoroughly check and double-check the batteries of your HVAC’s carbon monoxide detector at least twice every year. It would be wise to get the experts in this field to take a quick look at the unit to ensure that it is fully functional. They will check the appliance quickly and efficiently. You will have complete peace of mind that your carbon monoxide detection system is fully operating.
