What You Can Do
Having regular preventive maintenance performed on your HVAC system will ensure maximum efficiency and longevity. However, you can also take steps to ensure your system performs its best throughout every season.
- Clean or change your air filter every 1-3 months.
- Invest in a programmable thermostat to save energy by scheduling the temperature to more efficient settings.
- Clean around the outside system and free it of dirt, leaves, grass, and other objects that could inhibit proper airflow.
- Check your system for any dust or debris in and around the unit. Dirt can clog the air flow and overwork the equipment. Vacuum carefully if necessary.
- Vacuum the dust from all the air vents around your house and ensure they’re clear of any obstruction for optimum air flow throughout your home.
- Do not hesitate to contact Island Air Conditioning & Heating for questions, service or second opinions regarding your AC and heating needs.
