Maintaining your heating, ventilation and air conditioning system is the simplest way to reduce energy usage, keep your indoor air fresh and reduce wear and tear on the system. A dirty filter is often cause for HVAC breakdowns and repair. Seasonal HVAC maintenance keeps the system running efficiently and reduces the likelihood that the unit will stop working.

Heating and Cooling Maintenance Basics

Most HVAC manufacturers recommend a tune-up in the spring for the air conditioner and in the fall for the furnace. During a seasonal maintenance check, a professional HVAC contractor will examine all elements of the HVAC system including:

  • Check refrigerant levels
  • Oil all moving parts
  • Clean drains and tubing
  • Check furnace plenum and housing for cracks
  • Check belts for wear
  • Check and clean compressor housing and coils
  • Change or replace filter as needed
  • Check and calibrate thermostat
  • Check wiring and electrical connections
  • Ensure unit cycles on and off properly
  • Check ducts for leaks

Replacing the filter regularly can reduce energy usage by up to 15 percent. You save both energy and money.
