How to Prepare Your HVAC System for the New Year

New Years is generally a time when people reflect on the year that was and plan for the year to come. But part of the planning should include making time to schedule some important HVAC maintenance. By taking the time now to schedule a service appointment, the system will be ready to provide trouble free service in the new year.

Cleaning and Inspection

Though homeowners can and should clean around the exterior of their HVAC system, internal cleaning should only be performed by a trained professional. Heating and air conditioning units can build up internal dirt and debris that can lead to the system not working in an energy efficient manner or can even result in system failure. It is a good idea to have the internal workings of the system cleaned and inspected annually to keep the HVAC system working at peak efficiency.

Thermostat Check

The thermostat is the command center of the HVAC, yet many homeowners neglect to consider the importance of the thermostat. If a homeowner is still using an old-fashioned, mercury controlled switch, it is time to upgrade to an electronic unit that will provide better accuracy and system management. Even newer thermostats need an annual inspection to make certain that they are still operating properly and are calibrated accurately.

Duct Cleaning

New Years is a good time to schedule a duct cleaning. Duct cleaning involves removing dirt and debris that has accumulated inside an HVAC system’s air ducts. Duct cleaning can be especially important in Florida, where humid weather can encourage the growth of mold and mildew in a home’s ductwork. By keeping the ducts clean, it is not as likely that moisture will accumulate inside the ductwork. When the ducts are cleaned, they can also be inspected for leaks. Most leaks can be quickly repaired by our technician who is doing the cleaning, without the need for a separate service visit.
