5 Fall HVAC Maintenance Tips web

Leave it to the professionals with these 5 best practices we follow to service and clean your systems:

  1. Clean your outdoor units

With pine needles dropping, rocks rolling and wind blustering, debris can build up in, under, and around your unit. It is crucial to keep these potentially hazardous conditions at bay. With the ability for these little things to build up, you could have some serious issues on your hands with some extensive repair costs. With semi-frequent service or care, you can calm your mind and save your wallet.

  1. Keep your vents clean

As visitors trek in and out of the house, sand, dirt, and dust can build up. While it can be easy to forget about as you are enjoying fun in the sun, it is key to remember to occasionally check your vents for build-up. Having build-up in vents is one of the main reasons for higher utility costs. 

  1. Prevent clogging in the condensation drain line

It can be hard to know if you have a clog in the condensation drain line and how to approach it if you do. Fortunately, this is something we always check for with our regular maintenance and take extra care to prevent these drains from clogging. To mitigate the risk of build-up, you can pour a solution of bleach and water through the line but if you are faced with a clog already, you can give us a call and we will come prepared with a solution.

  1. Check your thermostat

It may seem like a simple task but it is easily forgotten in all the hustle and bustle of the summer season. Testing your thermostat and checking for the response is key to ensuring your HVAC is not being overworked. If it displays an accurate temperature and responds accordingly, you have nothing to fear. This is also a good time to reprogram your thermostat to ensure they are set for the appropriate weather. 

  1. Schedule maintenance

We may be a bit biased but calling Air Technical will ensure that a thorough inspection of your HVAC unit is conducted and any issues are addressed. Regular maintenance has the potential to extend the life of your unit and keep your energy costs low. 

As you enjoy the warm fall days under the sun, let us ease your mind with the knowledge that your HVAC system is performing at its peak; allowing you to have a comfortable and worry-free fall.
