HVAC maintenance is important to keep your Ontario, California, home comfortable year-round. There are several things you can do to make sure your furnace and air conditioner are always in prime condition. By completing these tasks, your HVAC system will deliver the comfort and efficiency you need:
Watch for Signs of HVAC Trouble
Keep an eye on how your HVAC system is functioning so you can raise any concerns at your maintenance appointment. If you notice any of these problem signs and don’t have an upcoming tune-up on the calendar, give us a call for a repair visit to help diagnose the problem. Common signs of trouble include:
- Unexplained increase in utility bills
- Strange noises
- Unpleasant odors
- Inability to meet thermostat settings
- Hot and cold spots around the house
Change Your HVAC Filters Regularly
Check the filter in your HVAC system once a month for signs of dust and dirt buildup. If the filter is visibly dirty, change it. At a minimum, change your filter once every three months, no matter how it looks. This will help ensure good air quality and keep your system running efficiently between tune-ups.
Schedule Annual HVAC Maintenance
Schedule HVAC maintenance twice a year to keep your system in top condition. Book your heater maintenance in early autumn before temperatures drop. This allows you to beat the cold weather rush for heater repairs that can happen when the chill of winter hits.
Schedule HVAC maintenance for your cooling system in early spring so you can beat the heat efficiently when warm weather returns. During your maintenance visit, a service technician will:
- Clean and inspect your unit
- Make important adjustments
- Calibrate your thermostat
- Lubricate moving parts
