2023 Resolutions for HVAC Preventative Maintenance

It’s a new year, which means it’s time to start thinking about your home maintenance resolutions. If you’re like most homeowners, your HVAC system is probably at the top of your list. After all, keeping your family comfortable all year long is important.

Regular Air Conditioning  Preventative Maintenance can be a lot of work. We’ve put together a list of maintenance resolutions for 2023 that can ensure your HVAC system runs smoothly all year.

Change your Air Filtration

One of the most important things you can do is to change your filters regularly. Dirty filters can restrict air flow, causing your system to work harder than it needs to and contributing to indoor air pollution.

We recommend changing your filters at least once every three months. If you have pets or allergies, you may need to change them more frequently.

Have your Ducts Inspected

Another important maintenance task is inspecting your ductwork. Over time, ductwork can deteriorate and come apart. In some cases ductwork can also be compromised and deemed hazardous due to rodent infiltration and contamination. We recommend having your ductwork inspected yearly and to NOT fall for “duct cleaning scams”.

Install a new Thermostat

If your thermostat is more than ten years old, it’s time to consider replacing it. Newer thermostats are more accurate and can save you money on your energy bills.

There are various thermostats available, so be sure to research them before purchasing. We recommend talking to a A&M technician to find the best option for your home and lifestyle.

Address any Insulation Issues

Insulation is important for keeping your home comfortable all year. If you have any gaps or leaks in your insulation, it can allow heat to escape in the winter and cool air to escape in the summer.

To fix insulation issues, you’ll need to add new insulation or seal any gaps or leaks. Consult with a A&M service technician to get the best recommendation for your home.

Check your Smoke and CO Detectors

Smoke and carbon monoxide detectors are an important part of any home safety system. They check that the air in your home is safe to breathe. To ensure that they’re working properly, you should simultaneously replace the batteries in all your detectors at least once a year. You can also mark the date on your calendar, so you’ll remember to do it next year.

Schedule Preventative Maintenance in the Spring and Fall

Preventative maintenance is important to keep your HVAC system running smoothly. During a maintenance, a A&M technician will clean and inspect your system to make sure it is operating safely and efficiently.

We recommend scheduling preventative maintrenance in the spring and fall, so your system is ready for the changing seasons. This will help you avoid any unexpected breakdowns. Should your air conditioning A&M service technician find any issues with your air conditioner, they’ll address them accordingly so that your family stays comfortable throughout the year.
