Whew, summer is finally here in central Indiana! You’ve definitely been making use of your air conditioning system, with many more days to come before cooler temps arrive in the fall. Most people don’t notice their HVAC unless it stops working. And, if it does, contact Westside Plumbing, Inc. for fast, reliable help. But, take a few moments now to do some DIY maintenance tasks to keep yours working hard for you!
Change Air Filters
Air filters should be changed regularly – approximately four times a year – to maximize the efficiency of your HVAC system. When the filter is clear of dust and debris, air can move through it much more easily. Besides making your air conditioning perform better, it’ll prolong the life of your HVAC unit.
Clear Vents and Registers
At the same time you change the air filters, walk around the exterior of the house and clear brush and debris away from the air conditioning unit. Similarly, take a walk around the interior of your home, and clear any vents or registers that may be blocked. This will ensure the unit isn’t working any harder than necessary.
Take a Listen
Besides not outputting cold air, one of the first signs of problems with the HVAC unit is loud noises coming from the unit. Listen for grinding, squealing, or whirring that exceeds the normal sounds you hear from the unit.
