HVAC Maintenance Checklist

Your HVAC Maintenance Checklist for 2022

HVAC Maintenance Checklist

Here’s an HVAC maintenance checklist that you can use to keep your heating and cooling systems up and running more efficiently. Following this will help prolong your units’ lifespan and keep them working efficiently.

  1. Change the Air Filters

If your HVAC systems are constantly in use, dirt and other debris will eventually get caught in the air filters. When there’s too much accumulation of these, it can make the filters clogged. The general rule is to have them changed every 30 to 90 days. Doing this will ensure that your systems produce clean air and the right amount of airflow.

  1. Clear Out Debris Around Outdoor HVAC Systems

Aside from getting inside your units, debris such as pollen, twigs, and leaves can also accumulate around and on top of your outdoor HVAC systems. You can quickly fix this by clearing this debris from around your AC. A good rule of thumb is to ensure that the parameters are clean within two feet of your AC units and heat pumps. This will help them pull in and release air much more smoothly.

  1. Inspect Refrigerant Lines

You can find two copper lines connecting your outdoor units to your indoor evaporator coil; these are your refrigerant lines. At least once a month, it’s essential to check them out for any signs of tear or leakages. When these are damaged, your HVAC unit won’t be able to produce enough heat or cool air into your home. In this case, you’ll need to call a skilled technician to have them replaced properly.

  1. Shut Off the Furnace’s Humidifier’s Water Supply

You should turn off the water supply to your furnace’s humidifier during the summer. Use it only in the colder seasons, like fall and winter. Your air conditioner works to pull the humidity out of your house, so adding humidity back in with the humidifier while your AC is running will cause added strain on your AC as well as your pocketbook.
