Your Charleston heating and air system is vital for keeping your home comfortable all year round. Return the favor with regular maintenance! Properly caring for your system prevents costly repairs and ensures it runs efficiently and effectively for years. To help you get started, here are some essential maintenance tips for your home’s heating and air.
Change the Filter Regularly
The air filter on your system keeps harmful allergens and pollutants out of your home. However, as the filter gets clogged with dust and debris, it reduces airflow throughout the system, making it less efficient. To avoid this issue, replace your air filter at least every three months (or earlier if necessary).
Clean the Coils
The condenser and evaporator coils are critical for your Charleston heating and air system. Over time, these coils can accumulate dirt, dust, and grime, reducing their efficiency. Be sure to clean the coils at least twice a year. If you don’t feel comfortable doing this yourself, hire a professional to do it for you.
Check for Leaks
Many leaks go undetected until they have caused significant damage to your system. To prevent this from happening, check for any visible signs of leaking, such as wet spots on the floor or walls around your air conditioner. If you find a leak, immediately call a professional for repairs.
