What can I do to Maintain my HVAC System Between Annual Tune-ups?
- Michael from Chino Valley
Michael, your role in maintaining your air conditioning or heating system is just as important as the job of the service technician who performs your annual maintenance inspection. Between annual visits you should change your furnace and air conditioning filters once a month. This is especially important during the summer when dust and allergens circulate. Even if the filter’s manufacturer recommends changes every other month, do it every month. Remove plants, fallen branches and debris from your outdoor HVAC equipment. Objects that are too close can prevent adequate air flow. Vacuum registers and air regularly. Heating contractors say simple dust and dirt cause almost half of their service calls.
