In order to prevent future issues with your HVAC unit, it is important that you or an HVAC company conduct system maintenance throughout the year. Doing so will not only help increase the efficiency of your unit but will also lengthen its operational life. In general, you should examine your HVAC unit every month, checking the refrigerant lines and replacing the old air filter with a new one, though you may need to change filters more frequently if you own pets. On a weekly basis, you should clear any debris, including grass clippings and leaves, from any outside HVAC unit.
In addition, you should complete more in-depth annual maintenance on your HVAC unit. For example, you need to inspect the evaporator coils to ensure that no mold has grown. Most systems also have condenser coils that collect dirt and deteriorate as a result, thus decreasing their performance. When conducting maintenance, you should replace these parts as needed to ensure maximum efficiency.
