Keep your Newberry, Florida, home running smoothly by extending the life of your heating and cooling system with regular checkups and maintenance.
Change the Filters
We know you’ve likely heard it a dozen times, but it’s important to change your HVAC filters regularly. As filters get dirty, they start to block the flow of air, making your HVAC system work harder to cool your home. When this happens, you are likely to see higher monthly energy bill. Set reminders or invest in a smart thermostat that will alert you when it’s time for a filter change. If you maintain your HVAC system well, it can last beyond its expected life.
Inspect the Units
Many people forget that the outdoor unit even exists, but it’s important that you give it a visual inspection every once in a while. Leaves, debris from storms, or broken tree limbs can cause damage to your HVAC’s outdoor unit. If you notice damage, be sure to call your HVAC repairman right away to make sure the problem doesn’t get worse.
