When it comes to keeping your HVAC system in excellent shape, here are some of the most basic things you can start with to to learn more about your system, which will help prepare your home for annual maintenance, as well as recognizing the problems that need the guidance of a licensed expert. Keep reading below to check them out!

Find out about your air conditioner

As you may have figured, studying the basics of your AC is a good way to begin. Find where the equipment is placed in your house, as well as a copy of its guidebook. You can review all the basic components and their associated terminology, which will be useful when you have to repair any problems or damage to the equipment.

Remember that understanding the basic features of your HVAC system is no replacement for an experienced technician, so supervise things and reach out when it’s time for the pros to take care of it.

Fine-tune your thermostat

If you want to save some additional money on the weekends, move your thermostat to better settings. Smarter models include many programmable solutions that offer more control over your home’s temperature than ever before. You can schedule the thermostat to only operate heating or cooling when you’re home and present to enjoy it, so that when you’re away on business or a deserved vacation, your thermostat is keeping energy usage cheaper. Every degree counts!

Start with the system air filter

With so many parts of your HVAC system to look after, it’s easy to fail to maintain your air filter as well. But it’s an important, monthly function that can save you more than a little time and money later on.

When you care for or switch out your filter every month or so, it goes on free from debris and is checked more regularly for usual wear. If you want to take a look yourself, go ahead, but don’t hesitate to find a pro for the peace of mind that your inspection was comprehensive and accurate. With our help, you can diminish the prospect of your AC breaking down, and keep those air filters clear.
