Top 4 Ways to Prevent System Failure
As heating season comes to an end and the cooling season begins, we highly recommend taking a look at the top 4 ways to prevent HVAC system failure during the warmer months.
- Check your air filters once a month.
The simplest thing you can do for your HVAC system is check the air filters regularly. A dirty air filter can compromise your indoor air quality, decrease the efficiency of your heating or cooling equipment, and even put strain on your HVAC system. Be sure to check your filters once a month and replace them as necessary when they become dirty or clogged. Looking to improve your indoor air quality and reduce the amount of filter swaps each year?

- Keep heating and AC units free of debris.
Another simple maintenance item you can take care of on your own is keeping your heating and AC units free of debris. Check your HVAC equipment — particularly your outside air conditioner unit — every week or so for dirt, pollen, leaves, sticks, and other debris. Clear any debris from the top and sides of the unit using gloves and a stiff brush, if necessary.
- Schedule a ProCheck for your HVAC equipment.
Heating and air conditioning units need a ProCheck (tune-up) at least once a year to ensure smooth, safe, and efficient operation. Spring is a great time to schedule tune ups for both your air conditioner and your gas furnace, oil furnace, or oil boiler. Sobieski offers comprehensive ProChecks for your heating and air conditioning systems which include an inspection for safe and proper function, thorough cleaning, and adjustments for greater efficiency.
