The HVAC Maintenance Checklist Every Homeowner Should Have

You know the feeling of walking into a room, and it’s too hot or too cold? That can be a sign that your HVAC system is not running at peak performance. This can be the worst nightmare for homeowners because the system goes out, and the repair is expensive. The best way to avoid that? Regular maintenance. 

If you want to keep your energy bills low and maintain good indoor air quality in your house, then make sure you give your HVAC system the proper care with the correct professionals. If you haven’t been doing anything for your system’s well-being, it’s not too late!

The To-Do List

This To-Do list will help you identify potential problems with your system so that you can save money on costly repairs down the road. 

  • Ensure the outdoor unit is connected to a power source and has not been damaged or blocked by plant growth.
  • Check whether all of the indoor units are on and running properly. This can be done using a remote control, if there’s one.
  • Inspect the evaporator coils, drain pan, and condensate pump. Drainage should be clear of debris or water that can obstruct drainage. If there are clogs in the drain line, then it must be cleared. Also, check whether all electrical components are working properly.
  • Check to see if filters have been recently changed so that you can prevent dust, dirt, or other particles from affecting the system’s performance.
  • Check for any leakage in the ductwork and if there are signs of microbial growth due to damp areas, make sure they are dried up immediately.
  • If possible, take a look at your outside unit to see whether it is undamaged or not.
  • Check whether the thermostat is working properly and that it has been programmed correctly.
  • See if any areas of your house have a lower cooling capacity than other parts because this could be due to bad insulation or ductwork, so check them out.

If you are done with your checklist and have found problems in one or more of these points, it means that your HVAC system is probably in danger of leaving you and your family sooner than you expected; but don’t panic just yet!
