September HVAC Maintenance Tips

To keep your HVAC system working properly throughout the year, it is important to take some time to maintain it. Let’s take a look at what you can do this September to ensure that your home is efficient and comfortable in October and beyond with these HVAC maintenance tips.

Schedule a Service Appointment

The folks at Alps Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. in Orange County can inspect your furnace and air conditioner to find and fix minor issues before they become serious ones. If an HVAC component is showing signs of serious damage, we can put in a new furnace or air conditioner in a timely and affordable manner. During a service appointment, it may be possible to change air filters or take care of other tasks that you may not feel comfortable doing on your own.

Clean and Seal the Area Around the Compressor

The compressor unit can be vulnerable to rain or dew that could form as the temperatures cool off during the winter months. A compressor unit can also be damaged by falling sticks or by animals that want to make it their home. Therefore, it is important to cover your unit as well as trim any branches that may fall during a rain or windstorm.

Have Your Ducts Cleaned

The air tends to have an easier time traveling around your home when ducts are free from dust and other debris. Furthermore, you reduce the risk that dust or other particles will travel throughout the home through its duct system. It may also be a good idea to have your ducts sealed as it can help to improve their efficiency as well as keep your indoor air cleaner.
