You may already know you need to give your HVAC system some TLC this summer to keep it operating its best, but what exactly should you be doing? We have three tips from your local HVAC experts to make sure your air conditioning is ready to rock and does its job all summer long.

Tip #1: Change the Air Filters Regularly

One of the fastest and easiest ways to preserve your heating and cooling system is by staying on top of air filter changes. Filters catch all the dirt, dust, and airborne pollutants that circulate throughout your home and HVAC system. A dirty air filter makes your system work harder than it should to keep your home cool. For best results, change the air filter at least every three months or more frequently if you have pets.

Tip #2: Give Your HVAC a Helping Hand

You can do a few things inside your home to help your AC not have to work quite so hard to maintain the temperature on your thermostat. Here’s what you can do:

  • Close the shades or drapes in your windows to minimize the heat coming from the sun through the windows.
  • Turn on your ceiling fan, ensuring it is running counterclockwise to increase the cool factor in your home.
  • Keep windows and doors closed to prevent the climate-controlled air from going outside. No homeowner wants to pay to cool off the outdoors!

Tip #3: Schedule Professional HVAC Maintenance

This one is a biggie! By scheduling HVAC maintenance with a trusted professional company before you need to use your AC this summer, you can ensure it is in peak condition to keep your home cool when you need it most. A maintenance visit will include a thorough inspection, tune-ups, and cleaning, so all the system components are working correctly.
