Now is the time to think about your back-to-school HVAC maintenance that will keep everything running smoothly, help lower monthly energy bills and give YOU Peace of Mind.
Here are a few quick tips to follow:
Schedule a System Tune-Up
The best way to keep your HVAC system running properly and efficiently all year round is to become a Preferred Customer and sign up for Gastech Solutions Precision Care Maintenance Plan. Our HVAC equipment is designed for optimal efficiency and comfort. Regular maintenance is the best way to ensure peak performance. These service check-ins can reveal leaks, rust or wear and tear, each season. A visit in the spring and fall will also improve its efficiency and prolong the equipment’s operational lifespan.
Clean or Change Your Air Filter
Your system’s air filter is constantly stopping pollutants and other particulates from re-entering your home’s air as the equipment is running. Maintaining your air filter is easy and routine maintenance will keep you breathing easier. Most filters are easy to slide or swap out, and it’s one of the few things you can do to maintain your filter without the help of a Gastech Solution Technician.
You should always double-check your user manual for specific recommendations, but generally speaking, it’s best to clean or change your filters once every 3 months. Remember, regular cleaning/changing of your filter will ensure the best filtration, increase the life of your machine, and give you peace of mind that you’re breathing easier.
Gastech Solutions can provide you with a year’s supply of proper air filters. Give the office a call 519-933-9823 for more information.
Look Around for Air Leaks
Small air leaks will force your HVAC equipment to run longer than it needs to, which will waste a great deal of energy and increase monthly energy bills. Two common places to find leaks are around the edges of doors and windows. Fix these trouble areas with caulking or weather-stripping.
Remove Debris from the Outdoor Unit
If your system has an outdoor unit, there’s a good chance that dirt and debris have collected around it, often including branches, leaves bird’s nests, animal droppings, and a slew of other items from nature. This can cause your HVAC system to run inefficiently, be sure to remove any debris near your unit.
