Have you checked your heating and cooling systems lately? Perhaps it’s time for you to take a look and do some simple maintenance, especially now that fall is almost here. Maintaining your HVAC systems to keep them at their optimum performance can easily be done through the following easy steps—but for more serious issues with either of your systems, don’t hesitate to call on heating or air conditioning repair experts as soon as possible.
Start with the Filter
Filters are perhaps the least expensive maintenance item needed for an efficient heating and cooling system, but it’s one that’s often overlooked. To ensure your systems’ optimal performance, Energy Star recommends the replacement of air filters at least once every three months. New filters trap the usual contaminants, such as pet hair, dander, and dust, better than worn-out filters, thereby prolonging the life of your systems.
