September HVAC Maintenance Tips

We’ll also test your system and make sure everything is operating as it should to reduce the chances of needing catastrophic repairs.
Here’s How to Prepare for Your Visit from the HVAC Professional
Trimming the shrubbery or anything that’s blocking your HVAC system and leaving about two feet of clearance will help prevent any growth that could damage or interfere with the heating operation. Also, changing the air filter monthly is a small task with huge benefits when it comes to its efficiency. Hosing down the outdoor components and removing any debris such as leaves that are sitting on top of the unit from time to time is also helpful.
Indoors, check the thermostat to see if the temperature is accurate with a thermometer that you’d use outdoors, if possible. Ensure that curtains, drapes, or anything else that’s blocking the air vents is cleared. Keeping the air vents open is always recommended at all times, even when the room is unused. Report any issues to the HVAC technician so that he or she will be able to address them upon arrival.
