Change the Filter

The change of seasons is a good reminder to change your HVAC air filter. The filter protects your HVAC system from dust and debris, but it also protects
you. By trapping airborne pollutants, it helps stop them from recirculating through your home. It also helps make your system as energy efficient as
possible by making it as easy as possible for air to flow through the filter.

Consider a Service Call

Your HVAC company can perform seasonal maintenance on your air conditioner, so it’s ready for the summer heat. Regular service will keep your system running
at peak performance and can cut down on costs and potential repairs. It should include:

  • Checking the fan blades and the blower motor for wear and tear
  • Checking the electrical
  • Inspecting the belts for wear and tear
  • Inspecting and cleaning the evaporator coil
  • Checking refrigerant levels
  • Clearing condensate drain and drain pans
  • Lubricating all moving parts
  • Test and calibrate the thermostat
