Your HVAC system is one of the most important components in your home — and it can be very expensive to repair. With some easy DIY maintenance tips, you can make your Las Vegas, Nevada, home more comfortable without breaking the bank.
Change Your Filter
The filter on your HVAC system helps to rid your indoor air of dust, pollen, and other contaminants. If it’s dirty, your indoor air won’t be nearly as clean. Plus, a dirty filter means your unit has to work harder to get air through, limiting your HVAC’s efficiency. Check the filter monthly for dust buildup, and change it at least every three months.
Keep It Clean Outside
You likely clean the inside of your house, but what about the outside? You’ll want to keep the area around the outside AC unit clean and free of debris. Plenty of things can build up around that area, like leaves, cut grass, kids’ toys, and more. The unit will operate more effectively when you keep it as clean as possible by removing these things.
Know the Sounds
Listen to the noises your HVAC system makes on a regular basis so that you can recognize when something changes. If your unit suddenly starts making rattling, flapping, or whistling sounds, then something is likely wrong.
Have Regular Inspections
Nothing will boost the lifespan and efficiency of your HVAC unit more than regular inspections from professionals. Schedule these appointments right before hot or cold seasons when you know the system will be getting a workout. Get everything tuned up, and you can save energy and guarantee your family’s comfort at the same time. Regular inspections will also help professionals detect and fix minor issues.
