An HVAC system is something that requires monitoring at all times of the year. They keep our buildings cooler in the summer, and they help us stay warm when winter comes around. Since an HVAC system will likely be under constant use, it will undergo quite a bit of strain, and this will eventually cause your system to break down if you don’t take care of it.
Proper maintenance for your HVAC system will keep you from spending more money on repairs or even replacing your system entirely. Therefore, maintenance is well worth the time you invest. Here is what you can do to maintain your HVAC system.
Keep Your Heat Pump/Condenser Clean
It’s easy for heat pumps and air conditioners to accumulate dirt, and when they’re dirty, they have to work much harder to help your building reach the desired temperature.
If you clean your heat pumps and your condensers, you aren’t as likely to cause damage to different internal components in your HVAC system.
You should also be sure that your HVAC system is level because it will lower the chances of a breakdown.
Clean Your Drain Lines
Air conditioners take moisture and remove it from the air in your facility. The moisture doesn’t go away, however, and it instead piles up inside your air conditioner’s drain lines before being sent outside.
As time goes on, drain lines can become dirty and dusty, making it more difficult to get rid of moisture. This puts your HVAC system at risk for growing mold and algae. By cleaning your drain lines, you can reduce your chances of getting them clogged.
Make Sure Your Outdoor Unit Remains Clear
Your outdoor unit has to deal with exposure to the outdoor elements all of the time. This means it constantly deals with various forms of weather and debris. In addition, outdoor vegetation can sometimes begin covering your unit, which stops your unit from releasing the exhaust it has.
Keeping an eye on your outdoor unit lets you detect obstructions early on, and you’ll be able to tell whenever you have to trim forms of vegetation nearby your system.
