One way to keep your HVAC system running smoothly is to change the air filter regularly. Air filters trap dirt and dust particles and if they’re not changed, they can clog and reduce efficiency. Check your air filter every month and replace it as necessary. Not sure when it’s time to replace your filter? Look for signs of buildup or discoloration. If you can’t remember when you last changed your filter, make a note on your calendar so you don’t forget.

Another way to extend the life of your HVAC system is to keep the area around the unit clean and free of debris. Dirt and leaves can get into the unit and cause it to work harder than it needs to. Trim back any vegetation or branches that are too close to the unit and regularly check the area around it for debris.

If your heating and air conditioning system has been running for a while, it’s a good idea to have it inspected and serviced by a professional every few years. A professional technician can spot any potential problems before they become major issues. It’s also a good idea to have your air ducts inspected and cleaned out every few years. This helps remove dust, dirt, and allergens that can reduce the quality of your air.

Finally, consider investing in a smart thermostat. Smart thermostats can learn your temperature preferences and adjust the settings for maximum efficiency. For even more convenience, some models can be connected to your smartphone or other smart devices so you can control your settings remotely.

These are just a few simple DIY tips to help you get the most out of your heating and air conditioning system. For more information, contact a professional at Long’s Air Conditioning, Inc. to learn more about their services and how they can help you maintain a comfortable and efficient home.
