It’s that time: the height of summer and air conditioning season. It’s likely you are using your AC system more frequently than you do for the rest of the year. That’s why being sure to perform proper maintenance on your HVAC filters and maybe even getting some professional AC repair (Tampa) is so important. Rescom Air Corp. is providing this guide to the ins and outs of proper HVAC maintenance, so you can be informed of the best practices when it comes to keeping your AC in tip-top shape. Knowing how to care for your HVAC system properly is half the battle to keeping it running correctly.


Basic HVAC Filters Maintenance

There are many preventative measures you and your HVAC professional can take to be sure your system will run smoothly and safely for a long time to come. Because debris can build up in the ducts and filters of your system over time, it is crucial to replace your filters and have routine professional maintenance performed so that the build-up doesn’t cause parts to break or wear out prematurely. While every system must be replaced eventually (this is inevitable), attention to proper care and maintenance can extend your system’s life, saving you money and headache in the long run.


How To Replace Filters 

The most critical step you can take to ensure you do not require AC repair (Tampa) is to replace the filters in your system regularly. With regular use, your filters will clog with debris and other particles. The function of filters is to trap this debris before it circulates through your system, contaminating your home’s air. However, if not replaced frequently, the debris clogs the filters, causing air contamination, inefficient air circulation, worn-out parts, and, in extreme cases, the system can break down. Therefore, you should replace filters at least two times every year: in the fall and the spring.  


When To Invest In Maintenance From Professionals

Although some HVAC maintenance tasks are easily performed on your own, there are some cases in which it makes sense to higher a professional to help you. An HVAC technician can perform a comprehensive servicing for your system, which will improve the efficiency and performance of your AC. 


Also, a professional will be able to assess your system for any issues and offer any repairs that must be done. They can often spot a problem before it causes noticeable issues for you. A good rule of thumb is always to put a professional in your contacts to call for both routine maintenance and repair.
