Maintenance Scheduling

   
HVAC Service  

Schedule a maintenance service call before the cooling season starts. If there are any problems with your system, it’s better to find out before it’s sweltering hot outside!

Filters

   
 

Replace your air filters every month that they’re in use "even if they do not appear to look dirty!"


Operating your system with old, dirty filters means energy is wasted and your system may even be damaged. Remember that your air filter captures other airborn contaminants which can affect the quality of air in your home and your health! While you’re at it, check and clean the filters in your home’s air cleaners and humidifiers.

System Checks

    If you have a forced air heating system, check your furnace’s blower compartment and blower coils. Vacuum them if you see dirt and dust there. You should also check fan belt tension, and lubricate fan and motor bearings.

Bleed hot water system radiators at least once a year.
Don’t keep clutter near your furnace. It’s a fire hazard, and may keep your system from operating efficiently.
Don't store items under a closet mounted, indoor Blower Fan/Coil unit, behind the Air Filter location, this can restrict the air-flow returning to your Blower system which can affect the proper operation of your entire cooling and heating system!
To make sure you’re getting the most out of your system, keep the registers and vents throughout the house free of dust, dirt, and pet hair by vacuuming them at least once a year.
