Your Homewood heating and air conditioning units are the most expensive home appliances that you own. However, if you are like many homeowners, you probably don't give these systems the attention they deserve. In fact, many people pay closer attention to the proper use of their garbage disposals than to their HVAC systems. There are a few maintenance tasks you can perform by yourself, even if you don't consider yourself a handyman.
Changing the filters once a month is perhaps the most energy-saving task you can perform. Filters are very inexpensive, yet they can save you untold dollars in heating, cooling, and repair bills. You can also clean the coils on your air conditioning system by using a simple garden hose and a soft broom.
On the other hand, you should hire a professional Homewood heating and air conditioning repairman to perform a yearly service check on each system. Unless you are a professional, this is not a service you should tackle alone. An HVAC repairman will usually catch small problems and fix them before they cause your system to fail. Your heating system should be serviced just after the winter season ends or at the beginning of fall. The air conditioning system should receive its own service call during the fall or winter. Most companies offer special prices to homeowners who take care of these services during the off-seasons when their repairmen have extra time. Share
