As the seasons change, we are periodically getting ready for either warmer or cooler weather. Following a cold winter, everyone looks forward to the warm months, and after a humid southern summer, most folks in our area welcome the cool weather. These are the times of the year when you should be thinking about getting your air conditioning squared away with general maintenance or having a tune-up performed for your heating system. There are steps that you can take to get even more out of the visit and potentially save on your energy costs. Here are a few tips we’d like to share to help you get more from your next HVAC service call.
A Few Small Tasks
When you call on the crew from Putnam Mechanical to maintain your heating and cooling equipment in the Charlotte area, we’ll take care of all the hard stuff so you can relax and enjoy the change of seasons. We’ll test everything, lubricate moving parts and ensure that the system is safe and secure. Overall, it’s a comprehensive HVAC service that we’re proud to offer our customers. We’ll handle all the important items for you, but there are some things you can do to help both us and yourself.
The first step is to check that the air filter is fresh and has been replaced within the last 30 days. Changing the filter every month reduces strain on the HVAC system and prevents pollutants from being recycled throughout the home. Next, trimming any bushes and shrubs or removing any other debris that may conceal the outdoor components is quite helpful to our technicians in accessing the system. It also helps to prevent any overgrowth from damaging the equipment. Finally, make sure that nothing, including drapes and curtains, is blocking the air vents and they’re completely opened. This ensures that our testing is accurate and that your system is working efficiently.
