How to Prepare an HVAC Maintenance Checklist on Your Own

An HVAC maintenance checklist can do wonders for reducing repair bills and can ensure that your unit keeps working for as long as possible. To this end, the expert techs at Robert B. Payne, Inc. can help homeowners devise a checklist highlighting all required maintenance for your HVAC system, from cleaning the unit to replacing worn out components.

Frequently Check Settings and Performance

Making certain a unit is performing as expected should be first on the HVAC maintenance checklist. Things like keeping a consistent temperature, as well as effective cooling and heating of all rooms, can be easily observed by a homeowner. If a system is not performing as you would like for it to, it may be time to call in the professionals.

Regularly Clean/Replace Air Filters

Air filters can easily be bogged down with dust and debris if left unchecked. Not only can this greatly diminish air quality, it can also degrade a unit over time, thereby resulting in pricey repair or replacement fees. Fortunately, cleaning or replacing a soiled air filter is an incredibly simple process that most homeowners can perform with ease.

Check Components as Necessary

Heating and cooling systems utilize a variety of components to function, including fans, belts, and other important items. It’s essential to keep these components well-lubricated and free of debris for optimum efficiency. Doing so can be highly beneficial to the overall function of a system, as well as costs incurred by decreased operation.
