How many of us provide proper maintenance to our HVAC system? The fact is that very few people do it. If you take care of your HVAC system with proper maintenance then you would be able to reduce your energy bill to a certain extend. If you want to avoid costly repair works then it is crucial that you schedule for a regular maintenance. Changing air filters, checking the fan of the unit, oiling the blower motor etc. are a few things that you need to do on a regular basis so as to ensure that your system is working properly. Changing air filters regularly is a must and need to be done at least every three months. Some filters are washable hence can be washed and refitted. While some are disposable ones they need to be replaced with a new one. A regular maintenance through a reputable HVAC contractor will ensure longer life for your system.
Checking the fan of your HVAC unit is essential because it tends to get loose over time. If the fan becomes loose then the unit is not function efficiently. Whenever you call a contractor make sure that he checks the fan and tightens it if it is found to be loose. Also clean the blades of the fan. It is essential to remove all the dirt and other buildups on the fan for it to rotate freely. If dust and other debris are allowed to stay on the fan then it will put extra strain on the unit’s motor thus reducing its efficiency.
