Seasonal Maintenance Changes You Should Be Making
Every season in Ohio presents its own unique challenges. In the winter, you're dealing with the cold and the snow. In the spring, it's all about the rain. And in the summer, well, it's just hot — and often very humid.
But no matter what the season, one thing is always constant: your heating and cooling system will be working hard to keep your home comfortable. That's why it's so important to give your HVAC system a little TLC on a regular basis. At Comfort Refrigeration in Canton, OH, our heating and cooling experts always recommend that homeowners take the following steps to ensure their HVAC system is running efficiently and effectively:
Change Air Filters
This is probably the simplest and most important thing you can do to keep your heating and cooling system running smoothly. Over time, air filters become clogged with dust, dirt, and other airborne particles, which can restrict airflow and cause your system to work harder than it needs to. This leads to high energy bills regardless of the season.
Clean Evaporator & Condenser Coils
Before the summer heat starts to make its presence known, be sure you prepare your air conditioning (AC) unit. To do this, the HVAC maintenance practice of cleaning the evaporator and condenser coils is key. Don’t take on this task by yourself — hire Comfort Refrigeration to get the job done.
Check The Refrigerant
Another essential change to make before the hot seasons arrive is to check the refrigerant in your AC unit. If it's low, it needs to be recharged in order for your system to work properly and cool your home effectively during the spring and summer.
Lubricate Moving Parts
An easy way to keep your heating and cooling system running smoothly is to lubricate all of the moving parts on a regular basis. This helps to reduce friction and wear and tear on the system, which can eventually lead to costly repairs. Our Comfort Refrigeration team can help you with this task — just give us a call.
