Homeowner Fact: Energy Star estimates that as much as half of the energy expenditure from a home is a result of energy spent heating and cooling. While we all want to keep our homes as comfortable as possible, installing and maintaining an HVAC system is quite the investment for a homeowner.

Because this system is so important, doing regular maintenance is a great way to catch problems before they become serious and extend the longevity of your system. Here are some HVAC maintenance tasks every homeowner can do:

  • Filter swap. For maximum air quality and efficiency, your HVAC filters should be switched out every 30 - 90 days depending on the quality of the filter. Other ways to improve heating and cooling include using the highest efficiency of filter your HVAC manufacturer recommends and ensuring a secure fit when filters are installed.
  • Limit dust. Simply dusting and vacuuming your home regularly can do wonders for your HVAC system. By getting these pollutants out of your home, you’re stopping them from having the ability to invade your air conditioning system. Always use the highest efficiency filter for the vacuum, and purchase a model with HEPA certification.

Tip: If construction is happening on your home, seal off supply and return registers in the house. Wait to unseal them until the dust has been cleaned away.

  • Check for drainage often. When the AC is running, a lot of moisture is generated by the system. Cooling coils remove water from the air, but if the drainage becomes obstructed they can become contaminated and create the perfect environment for mold. Regularly check drain pans and nearby surfaces for moisture accumulation.
  • Schedule regular maintenance. While there are quite a few things homeowners can do to maintain their HVAC system, having a professional survey your system twice per year is the best way to make sure your system is running as efficiently as possible. A deep cleaning can improve air quality and heating and cooling costs, so your family can breathe better.
