Uncover the Secrets of HVAC Maintenance with the contractor you can trust

When it comes to maintaining a comfortable and safe environment, few things are as crucial as your HVAC systems. But just like any other equipment, these complex devices require the right kind of care. That’s why we, at Family Heating & Air, are pulling back the curtains to share our expertise. Put simply, we’re here to ensure that any homeowner has the DIY know-how to manage basic HVAC maintenance tasks -while knowing exactly when to call in the trusted professionals.

Firstly, one of the easiest and most impactful things you can do as part of your DIY routine is cleaning or replacing filters regularly. This is both an uncomplicated task and vital for maintaining the efficiency and longevity of your system. In most cases, filters need to be checked every month and replaced about every 3 months.

Secondly, keep an eye on the outside unit. It can easily get clogged with dirt, leaves, and other debris. A quick, gentle clean can work wonders, but be careful not to damage the sensitive parts inside.

Next, there are tasks inside the home. Ensure that all vents and grilles are not obstructed by furniture or curtains, to allow proper air flow. Occasionally, inspect your ductwork for any leaks or damages, and if you spot any issues, call in an expert immediately.

However, not all HVAC maintenance tasks can be DIY’d. It’s crucial to know when a potential issue requires a more experienced touch. For instance, if you notice any unusual noises, smell something off, or if the system simply isn’t providing the expected level of comfort, it’s time to call in the professionals at Family Heating & Air. Doing so can prevent larger, more expensive problems down the line, including potential system breakdowns.
