Three Handy Tips from a Technician for Your HVAC Unit

Are you keeping up with your heating and air conditioning system? There are some simple things you can do in between twice-yearly service calls to keep it humming along. Take a look at three handy tips from an HVAC technician that you can do yourself.

Tip #1: Keep Your Filter Clean

One of the easiest and most important things you can do for your HVAC is keeping the filter clean. The filter protects the equipment from dust and other airborne pollutants. It also helps keep your indoor air clean by preventing the circulation of some of those pollutants. You should change the filter every three to six months, more frequently if you have pets, allergies, or live someplace particularly dusty.

Tip #2: Upgrade Your Energy Efficiency

A great way to keep your heating and cooling system working at its peak is by investing in an upgraded thermostat. A smart thermostat will help your system run more efficiently by ensuring consistent temperatures and allowing you control your energy use.

Tip #3: Don’t Neglect Service

It can be tempting to skip regular service when your heat and AC seem to be running as they should. Don’t do it. Regular maintenance includes cleaning, testing, inspecting, and calibrating the equipment to ensure proper function and prevent costly breakdowns.

You don’t always need an HVAC technician to keep your system in working order. These simple steps can make sure you keep your cool this summer. For help with any other issues or to find out about a service agreement, contact your local McCall’s Supply, Inc. dealer.
