The Ultimate HVAC Maintenance Guide: Ensuring Comfort and Efficiency

Updated: Apr 5

As homeowners, we often take our HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) systems for granted until they malfunction. Regular maintenance is key to keeping your HVAC system running efficiently, ensuring comfort, and avoiding unexpected breakdowns. In this blog post, we'll explore important HVAC maintenance tasks that every homeowner should prioritize. And remember, for hassle-free maintenance and exclusive benefits, consider enrolling in Tru Comfort Heating and Air Conditioning's Comfort Rewards Program.

  1. Change Air Filters Regularly: One of the simplest yet most crucial tasks is changing your air filters regularly. Clogged filters restrict airflow, making your system work harder and less efficiently. We recommend checking and replacing filters every 1-3 months, depending on factors like allergies, pets, and system usage.

  2. Inspect and Clean Ductwork: Leaky or dirty ducts can significantly impact your HVAC system's performance. Periodically inspect your ductwork for leaks and seal them promptly. Additionally, consider professional duct cleaning to remove accumulated dust, debris, and potential allergens.

  3. Clean the Condenser and Evaporator Coils: Over time, your system's coils can accumulate dirt, reducing their ability to absorb heat. Regularly clean the condenser and evaporator coils to maintain optimal efficiency. Trim any vegetation around the outdoor unit to ensure proper airflow.

Check Refrigerant Levels: Insufficient or excessive refrigerant levels can lead to poor cooling performance and increased energy consumption. Schedule a professional HVAC technician to check and adjust refrigerant levels if needed.

  1. Inspect Thermostat Settings: Ensure your thermostat settings are accurate and programmable. Adjusting the temperature based on your schedule can significantly reduce energy consumption and extend the life of your HVAC system.

  2. Lubricate Moving Parts: Parts like fan motors and other moving components benefit from regular lubrication. Well-lubricated parts reduce friction, resulting in less wear and tear on your system. However, always consult your system's manual or hire a professional for this task.

  3. Check Electrical Connections: Faulty electrical connections can be hazardous and affect your HVAC system's performance. Inspect electrical components, tighten loose connections, and schedule professional maintenance to address any issues.

  4. Evaluate System Performance: Periodically assess your HVAC system's overall performance. If you notice unusual noises, reduced airflow, or inconsistent heating or cooling, it's time to schedule a professional inspection. Addressing minor issues early can prevent major breakdowns later on.
