Keeping heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems well-maintained is one of the most cost-effective ways to boost energy efficiency. You’ll also benefit from enhanced performance and protect the life of the equipment in your Madison, Florida, home. Regular maintenance ensures that your HVAC system will perform at peak efficiency, so you save money on utility bills.
Basics of Preventive Maintenance
Before you start using your air conditioner in spring or the heater in fall, schedule a seasonal tuneup with a licensed HVAC contractor. At Waller Heating & Air Conditioning, our service technicians test, calibrate, and clean all components. Tasks include:
- Replacing dirty air filters
- Checking the refrigerant level
- Inspecting the condensate lines and drip pan
- Examining air conditioning coils
- Adjusting blower components
- Calibrating the thermostat
- Testing wiring and controls
- Checking the heat exchanger, burners, and ignition on furnaces
Our service technicians do the heavy lifting, but you can help to take care of your system too. Change your air filter every one to three months. Keeping filters clean can lower energy usage by as much as 15 percent. Dirty filters allow debris and dust to enter the system and coat the coils. Buildup on components impedes performance, and HVAC units will have to work harder which lead to damage and higher energy bills.
Maintenance Protects Your System
The last thing you want is for your AC or heater to stop working when you need it most. Annual maintenance inspections allow us to find small problems and address them before they get worse. Being proactive can save you money on repairs. Regular maintenance helps to protect the system from the effects of wear and tear that occur over time.
