It’s so important to ensure that your HVAC system is maintained in order to keep it running and in good condition. At Integrity Comfort Solutions, we’ve put together 5 top tips on how to maintain your HVAC system on a DIY basis.

Air Filters

When it comes to the maintenance of your HVAC system, some big jobs require the professional help of an HVAC contractor. However, did you know that you can simply change your air filters yourself? This is very easy to do and should be done on a monthly basis.

Thermostat

You should regularly check the thermostat on your HVAC system. If you fail to do so and there is a temperature problem, it could end up costing you a lot of money to be repaired. You may want to consider installing a programmable thermostat which will allow you to preset temperatures for different times throughout the day.

Clean Regularly

If you notice that the furnace blower compartment is clogged or dusty, use a vacuum to remove any debris. It’s highly important to also ensure that there are no obstructions as it could cause your system to fail, or more dangerously, a fire.

Unusual Behavior

If you begin to notice anything unusual with your HVAC system, it may be time to call in a professional. Unusual behavior includes hissing, humming or vibrating noises as well as strange smells.

Consider Attic Insulation

If you don’t already have attic insulation, it may be time to consider having it installed. A lack of insulation can affect the energy efficiency in your home negatively. You may end up overusing your HVAC which can be costly.
