Semi-annual HVAC maintenance key to maximizing optimal performance for enjoying home comfort as well as reaping the benefits of energy efficiency. Whether you are planning on selling your home in the near future or not, here is the checklist you should be following.
Maintain the Air Filter and Ducts
If you have forced-air cooling and heating, conditioned air passes through a filter and is distributed throughout your home by way of ductwork. These parts and pieces require inspection at a minimum of once a year, bi-annually are ideal.
Here’s your HVAC maintenance guide for air filters and ducts.
Inspect the ducts for air leaks (repair as needed)
Inspect the duct areas for missing insulation (add as needed)
Air duct cleaning: mold, dust, dirt, and pet dander build up. They need to be cleared out
Check the air filter for proper fit
Check air filter regularly to make sure it’s not dirty or clogged
Maintain the Air Conditioner with regular check-ups by a professional technician
