Check The Air Filter
Near where the system connects to your home, you will find the air filter. Remove the grate and remove the filter to inspect it. If the air filter is dirty or ripped, it would be advisable to replace it to improve the air quality in your home.
Check The Lines
It is important to take a look at the lines connecting the HVAC system to your house. If any of the lines are damaged or the insulation surrounding them is missing, they need to be replaced. This can be complicated so you might want to contact a professional.
Do A Deep Clean
Take the system off power and remove the top to get inside the unit. Remove any large debris from the bottom and sides. Spray the sides with coil cleaner and spray it with a hose to wash off the dirt. Inspect the inside to see if there is any damage.
Get The System Checked
When was the last time you had your HVAC system checked? It should be checked at least twice a year. Getting a professional to come and take a look at your system regularly is the best way to ensure it is in great shape. A technician can find issues you missed and do repairs to keep it in working order.
Air quality is important to make sure you and your family are cool and comfortable all summer long.
