Important HVAC Maintenance For Roswell Homeowners
The top heating and air conditioning services in Roswell offer an annual maintenance plan or service agreement. This is a very low cost, proactive way to have the HVAC system in your home looked at annually or twice a year.
This type of plan will have the professional service technician check all the mechanical aspects of the system as well as checking electrical components, filters, belts and other parts as indicated by the type of system.
Also, there are some simple maintenance steps for the heating and air conditioning system for any homeowner to complete on their own. These may seem very simple and basic, but they can help to extend the life of the system and prevent common issues which may lead to a need for repairs.
Most manufacturers will recommend changing HVAC filters once a year. However, depending on the environmental conditions, the dust and airborne particles in the home or outdoors, it may need to be checked and cleaned or changed more frequently.
It will be important to ensure you use the recommended filter for your HVAC system. If you are not sure, contact your heating and air conditioning company and ask for a recommendation. Do not use a high-efficiency replacement filter unless the HVAC system manufacturer recommends this filter type. The design of the filter can lead to poor performance and boost energy use by restricting air flow.
For outdoor air conditioning units, keep plants, shrubs, grass, and debris off the top and sides of the unit. This can slow down air circulation and also add to the debris inside the unit.
For furnaces, keep the area around the furnace swept and free from dust and other materials. It is also important for safety as well as performance issues to avoid stacking or storing any materials or objects close to the furnace.
