DIY HVAC Maintenance Tips for a Cozy and Efficient Home

As the weather cools down, ensuring your HVAC system is in top condition becomes crucial for
maintaining a comfortable and energy-efficient home. While scheduling regular professional
maintenance is essential, there are several DIY tasks you can perform to keep your system
running smoothly between professional tune-ups.

Prioritize Air Filter Maintenance
One of the most critical DIY HVAC maintenance tasks is regularly changing or cleaning your air
filters. These filters act as a barrier, trapping dust, dirt, and allergens before they circulate
through your home and clog your HVAC system. Replace disposable filters every 1-3 months, or clean reusable filters according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

Keep Vents and Registers Unblocked
Blocked vents and registers restrict airflow, reducing the efficiency of your HVAC system and making it harder to maintain a comfortable temperature throughout your home. Regularly
remove any obstructions from vents and registers, and clean them periodically to prevent dust

Clear Debris from Outdoor Units
The outdoor unit of your HVAC system is susceptible to accumulating debris, dust, and leaves. Regularly clean the outdoor unit to ensure proper airflow and prevent overheating. Use a soft
brush or vacuum cleaner to remove loose debris, and trim any nearby vegetation that could
obstruct airflow.

Inspect for Leaks
Examine your HVAC system for any visible leaks, especially around the refrigerant lines and condensate drain. Leaks can indicate refrigerant loss or drainage issues, which can affect the
efficiency of your system. If you notice any leaks, promptly contact a qualified HVAC technician
for repair.

Schedule Regular Professional Maintenance
While DIY maintenance is important, professional HVAC maintenance is essential for optimal system performance and longevity. Schedule professional tune-ups at least once a year to
ensure your system is operating efficiently, identify potential problems early on, and extend the lifespan of your HVAC components.
