Annual system tune-ups are essential to maximizing the lifespan of your Lakeland, FL HVAC equipment. Neglecting maintenance is a sure way to overwork your system and wear it down prematurely. Poor maintenance can impair energy-efficient performance and cost you money on utility bills. Skipping even one maintenance visit can invalidate your equipment warranties. Take these steps now to maximize HVAC longevity and minimize HVAC breakdowns.
Schedule Professional HVAC Maintenance
A comprehensive HVAC checkup will disclose any issues that need attention and are interfering with optimal system performance. Your service technician will perform a series of tasks that will restore your HVAC to a like-new condition. Did you know that HVAC maintenance decreases the possibility of breakdowns by up to 95 percent? It can also reduce utility bills by as much as 40 percent.
Perform Indoor HVAC Maintenance
Keep your HVAC equipment going strong between maintenance visits by changing the filter regularly. Your filter needs replacement when you can’t see through it. Grungy filters jack up energy bills and can destroy your system. Dirty filters make your HVAC overwork, so it wears out faster. Even worse, all the filter dirt will be circulating through your home and contaminating indoor air.
Perform Outdoor HVAC Maintenance
The outdoor condenser unit is easy to forget, but it should be checked monthly. Remove any twigs, leaves and other debris that have collected around the unit. Cut back any bushes, plants or other foliage to six feet away from the unit. Periodically rinse the unit with a gentle stream of warm water and wipe clean.
