4 Important HVAC Checklist Items for the Summer
Your heating and cooling system needs attention and maintenance just like any other appliance, maybe more. This is especially true in the summer months when it works harder and stays on longer to keep your house cool. What kind of care does it need? Take a look at four important HVAC checklist items for the summer.
1. Replace the Air Filter
No matter the season, your HVAC air filter needs changing regularly. In the summer, this is even more important. With all of the airborne allergies present in the summer, your filter gets dirtier faster. Changing it should be at the top of your checklist.
2. Clean the Condenser Coils
The condenser coils contain refrigerant and work by absorbing hot air so your air conditioner can cool it. If the coils are dirty, they won’t be able to work properly, and your AC won’t be able to keep up. Clean the coils for a cooler home.
3. Check the Refrigerant
If the refrigerant gets low, the AC can’t cool the air. An HVAC technician can check and replenish the refrigerant to ensure your air conditioner can keep up with demand.
4. Inspect the System
During regular HVAC maintenance, a technician will inspect the system. They will check the lubrication of the moving parts, the fan and fan belts’ condition, the cleanliness and function of the components, and ensure the system is operating safely.
Your HVAC system needs TLC to keep running right. In the summer, proper maintenance is a good idea to ensure your home stays cool and comfortable. For maintenance you can rely on, contact your local McCall’s Supply, Inc. dealer today to schedule a service call.
