Four Tasks to Perform Before Turning Your Furnace Off in the Spring
Keeping a maintenance schedule for your air conditioner, furnace, and other HVAC equipment is an important part of keeping everything in working order. JP Heating & Air Conditioning makes regular maintenance very easy for you with our Family Plan Maintenance Agreement. In this post, we will look at four tasks you should perform before you turn off your furnace for the spring and summer.
- Look over electrical connections
If you notice any fraying, loose wires, or anything disconnected, you should call an HVAC professional to come over and take a closer look. Do not attempt to handle or repair electrical components on your HVAC equipment yourself.
- Clean your unit
Many homeowners do not clean their unit often enough. Your HVAC unit should be cleaned inside and out at least three times a year. However, it is particularly important to before changing from heating to cooling. Not only can unwanted debris cause mechanical malfunctions, but they can also cause your unit to function less efficiently or even break down during the peak performance times.
- Check/inspect filters
Your furnace filters should be checked regularly and changed on a schedule. If you filter is past its prime and is damaged or clogged, it will greatly reduce your unit’s efficiency. Not only is this not economically smart, it also puts stress on your unit as it’s trying to compensate for the lack of airflow.
