Furnace and Heat Pump Maintenance You Can Do

The easiest way to save money on heating and cooling costs in Woolsey, GA is to maintain your HVAC equipment. Even small things can add up to big savings. Here are three things you can do to keep costs low and indoor comfort high:

Change Your HVAC Air Filters Regularly

If you have allergies and multiple pets, change your filters every 30 – 60 days. If you live alone and have no pets or allergies, you can go up to six months without a filter change, but it’s wise to check the filter every 3 months. The frequency of filter changes will also depend on the type of filters you’re using and the number of people in your home. The best policy is to check the air filters every month and adjust the schedule according to how fast they get dirty.

Keep the Area Around the Outdoor Unit Clean

The area around the outdoor unit of your air conditioner or heat pump should be kept clean and free of debris like leaves, trash, and twigs. Anything that could obstruct airflow should be removed. Cut back foliage to three feet away from the unit. Periodically check to make sure the unit is on a level surface, and if there is any debris, rinse it away gently with a garden hose. It’s also a good idea to make sure the condensate line is clear. When your air conditioner is running, check to make sure the outside condensate line (a PVC pipe located close to the condenser) is dripping water. If it isn’t, it could be clogged and will need to cleaned out.

Have Your HVAC Serviced Every Spring and Fall

Furnaces should be serviced in fall and air conditioners should be serviced in spring. Heat pump maintenance should be scheduled in fall and spring since they are basically two systems in one unit. Regular maintenance can prevent up to 95 percent of unanticipated system crashes. Most HVAC contractors can tell you that the majority of their heating and AC repair calls could have been avoided with regular maintenance.

Maintenance keeps your equipment in top-notch condition and operating at peak capacity. High-functioning HVAC systems use less energy, and that keeps utility bills low.
