Routine maintenance is a vital part of keeping your heating and cooling system working properly. When you have an HVAC technician come over to do maintenance, there are certain questions you should ask. Keep the following questions in mind for your HVAC checkup checklist.
How Can I Heat or Cool My Home More Efficiently?
Your HVAC technician can provide you with tips on how to improve your system’s efficiency. For example, your technician might recommend thermostat settings or ways to remember to change your air filter on a regular basis.
How Often Should I Schedule Routine Maintenance?
You can ask your HVAC technician how often your system should have routine maintenance done. This can vary depending on how old your system is and what condition it’s in overall. Generally, homeowners should have their HVAC system maintained twice a year.
Why Is My HVAC System Making That Noise?
If your HVAC system has been making any odd noises, you should ask your HVAC technician about it. In some cases, routine maintenance — such as having a component tightened — might be all your system needs in order to stop it from making unusual sounds. However, your HVAC technician might find that a problem with your system is causing those noises, possibly meaning that your system needs to be repaired.
How Do I Change My Air Filter?
Replacing your air filter is important for keeping the air in your home healthy. If you don’t know how to change it, your HVAC technician can show you. You can also ask your technician to recommend an air filter for your system and let you know how often you should check it and change it.
What Are Common Signs of HVAC Problems?
Knowing what signs to watch for can help you get repairs done promptly. You can ask your HVAC technician to go over common signs that your HVAC system might need repairs in between maintenance visits.
