When the season changes, it’s a great time to tune-up your HVAC system. In Henderson, Nevada, when winter temperatures arrive, there are easy ways to maintain your HVAC system.
Replace the Air Filter
Your air filters should be changed every 30-90 days. Some systems have washable air filters, which alert you when they need cleaning. In either scenario, the onset of winter is a great time to clean or change the air filter. This will also help with your indoor air quality.
Dust and Clean Your Air Vents
While running your HVAC system, dust, dander, and pollen can build up on your air vents. Winter or any change in the season would be a great time to clean your air vents to avoid allergens like these from being circulated throughout your home. Not only does this help keep your allergies at bay, but it also keeps your home more comfortable.
Check Your Duct Work
This is the time of the year when getting your duct work inspected could help lessen the chance for repairs. The same dust and dirt that can build-up on your air vent can also build-up in your duct work. Getting your duct work inspected regularly can save you money on utility bills due to leaks and separations in the duct work.
Schedule Regular Maintenance
One of the easiest ways to maintain your HVAC system is to have an HVAC technician inspect your system. With a regular maintenance agreement, a technician will perform a pre-season tune-up to make sure your system will run smoothly for the upcoming season change. The tune-up includes checking your thermostat for accuracy, a duct work inspection, lubrication of moving parts, and testing cycling equipment, among other things.
