The Do's and Don'ts of HVAC Maintenance, Liberty, Ohio

Taking care of your HVAC system is essential to ensure it’s running smoothly. Without the proper maintenance, your heating and cooling units may be working harder than they should. This can put wear and tear on your machines and lead to costly repairs or replacement. HVAC contractors recommend following these do’s and don’ts to keep your system in top shape.

Do

Have a cleaning routine.

Cleaning your heater and air conditioner removes debris and harmful allergens — ensuring only clean air is pumped throughout your home. When it’s time to clean, power off the unit, then clean the outside, including the condenser and compressor. Clean up any debris that has accumulated around the system, and check for signs of wear and tear. Perform these tasks at least once a season — twice if you have an outdoor unit and live in an area that’s surrounded by trees or brush.

Schedule regular maintenance.

HVAC ContractorYou can perform basic tasks on your own, but call in an HVAC contractor to tackle the bigger, more difficult projects. Ideally, have maintenance performed at least once a season. Or, at least twice a year if you plan on turning on your heater or air conditioner for the first time in months. Keep track of your heating and air inspections to create a regular maintenance schedule.

Don’t

Do your own electrical work.

If your systems keep short-circuiting or are not pumping a continuous flow of air, you may need electrical work. Do not do it on your own! You run the risk of electrocuting yourself or starting a house fire. HVAC contractors have the skills, experience, and expertise to handle the inner mechanics and complicated wiring of your heating and cooling units. Leave this job to the pros.

Size your own heating and cooling units.

If your HVAC units have run their course, it may be more cost-effective to replace your current models with new ones. However, finding the perfect fit for your home can be challenging and depends on a variety of factors including where you live, the size of your home, and the number of occupants. Always consult a professional for this essential task.
