The last thing you want is your HVAC system to conk out on you when you need it the most. Following these Morton Grove HVAC maintenance tips is the best way to ensure it works when you need it.
Schedule Regular Maintenance Checks
Your home’s HVAC equipment needs regular maintenance checks like any other piece of machinery in your home to ensure it runs well. Hiring a qualified technician to regularly service your heating and cooling equipment is an excellent investment that improves system longevity and can even lower energy usage. During a service check, the technician will check refrigerant levels, replace, or clean the filter (depending on the type), inspect interior parts like the coils, listen for weird sounds, and recalibrate the system. You want to have professional maintenance service done at least twice a year, once in the fall and once in the spring.
Keep the Area Around the Unit Clear
Most HVAC systems are located in basements where people store household items and other materials. Sometimes, the systems might be in a utility closet where cleaning items are stored. No matter where your HVAC system is housed, you want to ensure the area around it is always debris-free. When there’s too much clutter near the unit, it can cause damage to the unit, and if you have a gas furnace, it can even be a fire hazard.
