Every fall, homeowners usually have a long list of tasks that should be completed before winter. One important thing to remember to do each fall is HVAC system maintenance. Local HVAC contractors recommend several maintenance tasks to help ensure your HVAC system is operating properly and with optimal energy efficiency. Here are 3 recommended HVAC system maintenance tasks to complete this fall: HVAC Contractors Coon Rapids MN
Clean The Ductwork
Do you remember the last time you checked your ventilation system? Being that air flows consistently in and out of your HVAC system, your ductwork can become clogged with lots of debris that restricts the airflow. This also contributes to poor indoor air quality and can lead to adverse health effects. Professional ductwork cleaning helps improve the air quality within your home. The dust, dander, and debris that collects in your ductwork will start to impact the indoor air quality and thus cause adverse health impacts. Keeping your ductwork clean helps your HVAC system run more efficiently and can also save you a significant amount of money when it comes time to pay your energy bills month to month.
Change Out The Air Filter
Keeping your air filter clear of dust and debris has several benefits. One of the primary benefits though is that it keeps your home safe. Homeowners who don’t regularly change the air filter are putting their furnace at risk of working too hard and overheating. HVAC system failure is unfortunate any time of year, but it’s especially dangerous during the winter months where it’s imperative that your home stays warm to protect everyone from the frigid temperatures we get during the Minnesota winters. Changing out your air filter also helps reinforce clean airflow throughout your system. After many months, your air filter will be caked full of dust and debris that contribute to poor indoor air quality. It’s recommended that you change your air filter regularly, and your local HVAC company can help you determine which air filter can most benefit your home.
Get A Preventative Maintenance Check
Getting a Preventative Maintenance check performed by a professionally-trained HVAC technician is an important home maintenance task to do regularly. HVAC contractors are able to thoroughly and efficiently check your HVAC equipment. All Climate Mechanical utilizes a detailed performance log sheet that goes through the equipment and the status of the operation. The performance log sheets help track performance and discrepancies in performance from prior maintenance checks. Getting a Preventative Maintenance check helps address concerns before they turn into complex and expensive problems that could potentially shut the HVAC system down. Preventative HVAC maintenance checks are good to do any time of year, but it’s especially wise to do it before freezing temperatures become consistent.
Getting your ductwork professionally cleaned, changing the air filter, and getting a preventative maintenance check are all highly recommended fall maintenance tasks to perform before temperatures consistently drop below freezing.
