The Do’s & Don’ts of HVAC Maintenance, Perry, Ohio

When you’re comfortable at home, it’s easy to forget about the system that makes it all happen. Neglecting this system can lead to disruptions and costly HVAC repairs. Maintaining your HVAC system is fairly easy, but that doesn’t mean it can be ignored. Here’s a quick look at some of the most important do’s and don’ts when it comes to HVAC maintenance for your home.


Keep debris away.

Dirt and debris can create problems for vents, ducts, and other components of your HVAC system. Go outside and clear away any leaves or debris around the unit. Secondly, trim away any plants that are growing within 6-inches to prevent them from impeding the airflow to your system.

Change the filter regularly.

HVAC RepairYour HVAC’s air filter needs to be changed every three months, but if you have pets who shed often, you can find yourself changing the filters more often. If the air filter becomes full, it becomes clogged and prevents clean air from coming in. These same clogs can lead to the entire system shutting down and needs an HVAC repair to get it going again. Changing the filter takes little time and can save you money later.


Skip out on annual maintenance with a professional.

Annual cleaning and check-ups are essential to the life and health of your system. A professional can diagnose issues with your system and perform needed HVAC repairs before they get bigger.

Ignore unusually high electric bills.

If you notice an unexpected increase in your electric bill, it could be a warning sign that something is wrong with your HVAC system. If your HVAC is experiencing problems, it may be working harder and using more energy to perform daily tasks. Contact a professional HVAC contractor immediately to find and fix the problem.
