What Should Be on Your Summer HVAC Maintenance Checklist

Summertime means hotter weather, which can affect your indoor comfort and put additional strain on your HVAC system. Fortunately, routine maintenance ensures your air conditioner can perform at peak efficiency to keep your home cool.

HVAC Maintenance Checklist

Here are some HVAC maintenance tasks that you should include on your summer to-do list so that you can beat the heat.

Filter Inspection

Make sure you check the filters regularly — every one to three months. If you have pets or your home is exposed to high amounts of pollen, dust and pollution, you may need to change or clean your air filters more frequently. The filter inside an HVAC system traps pollutants and helps prevent them from circulating throughout your home. It also prevents blockages that could reduce the system’s airflow.

Condenser Coil Cleaning

While the condenser is turned off, spray the coils with water to remove dirt and debris. Keeping your condenser coils clean will help your HVAC system transfer heat to the outside air and cool your home more effectively.

Thermostat Calibration

A broken thermostat can prevent your HVAC system from correctly reading the temperature in your home. In this case, call a professional technician to repair your thermostat and make sure it is properly calibrated.

Air Duct Cleaning

Dust and debris accumulation in the air ducts restricts airflow. It can also put strain on your air conditioner as it struggles to keep your home at your desired temperature. To solve this problem, hire experts to clean your air ducts.

Electrical Wiring Inspection

Have your HVAC system’s wiring checked ever once in a while. Wires deteriorate from exposure and degrade due to overheating at the connector ends. If you see any scorched wiring, call a technician.
