Filter Maintenance will help the HVAC System

Filter Maintenance will help the HVAC System


If you want to take the best care of your HVAC system as possible, make sure to inspect the filter. Not only should the filter be inspected on a regular basis, but it should also be changed when recommended. This will help to ensure that the air that is going through your home is clean and of good quality. Without a filter, dirt and dust can get into HVAC system. This will then be redistributed back into the air of your home. You may notice the air difficult to breath at times. The dirt and dust can also damage the parts and gears of the HVAC system as well.

Always remember to replace the filter based on the recommendations. If you have pets in your home, or someone smokes, the filter should be changed more often. You will want to get a filter that is the correct size and type for your HVAC system. If it is not, the system will not be able to perform at the best efficiency that it otherwise could be. We can also recommend and advise what filter is needed for the system in your home.

If the filter becomes dirty between changes, you can clean the filter. You can vacuum the dirt and dust off of the filter. This will help keep the air circulating through the system properly. When the filter becomes too clogged, the system will have to work hard to pull the air through the filter and ductwork. It can also lead to parts failing prematurely and a costly repair bill as well. If you notice any odd noises from the system when it operates, always be sure to contact us. We can inspect it and find the source of the problem to repair.

Make sure to Notice Odd Noises

Make sure to Notice Odd Noises


The HVAC system is important in your home because it will help keep the air warm or cool, depending on what season it is. The last thing you will want is an unexpected breakdown when you least expect it. To help prevent that, regular maintenance checks will increase the efficiency of the system. If you are not sure if the system is efficient, just take a look at your monthly energy bill. When the system has issues, you may notice that the bill is much higher. This could be the result of the system running all the time, leaks in the system, and that there is an issue with it. When you notice a problem, make sure to contact us so we can inspect it for you.

Parts that Grind

A grinding or thud noise can be one of several things. It will typically mean a part is failing, and will need to be replaced. It is best to have this done by a professional. Also be aware of when the noise happens. Sometimes the noise is only a few seconds as the system turns on. Other times the noise could be the entire time the system is operating. No matter what noise or sound you hear, it is best to have it inspected before a larger issue occurs.

When there is a humming noise from the HVAC system, there could be an issue with the filter. The filter should be inspected to make sure it is not clogged or full of dust. Also make sure to follow the regular maintenance schedule for your HVAC system. This should also include changing the filter when it is recommended. Not only does it help the system operate, it also helps keep the air as clean as possible in your home.

Keeping the Filter Clean

Keeping the Filter Clean


The filter is designed to keep the air in your home clean, as well as help your HVAC system. As air passes through the filter, the dust and dirt is collected in the filter. The rest of the air continues through the hvac system and then is redistributed to the rest of your home. This will help keep the air clean and easy to breathe. If you notice any issues with breathing, it could be caused by the air in your home. If anyone suffers from allergies or asthma, then poor air quality is easily noticed. The filter will also help capture other things like poor odors, pet dander, and pet hair.

The filter should be inspected on a regular basis. Make sure to change the filter when it is recommended. It would become clogged with dirt and dust, and will no longer be efficient. Never run the HVAC system without a filter installed. This can do damage to the system. Without the filter to collect those things, the dirt and dust can go through the system, and cause damage to the operating parts and components. It can result in costly repairs needing to be done to your HVAC system as well. Also make sure the filter is the correct size. If you are not sure what size it should be, we can advise you on it.

Notice any odd sounds that the system might make. If the filter is clogged, the system might be working harder to get air to move through, thus resulting in straining sounds from the system.
