It’s that time of year again. The kids have gone back to school, the mornings are feeling brisk, and your HVAC unit is desperately looking forward to a little break from the Summer heat. Now is the perfect time to show your appreciation for all the hard work it does! Taking a few minutes to have Peck perform these End of Summer Maintenance Tips will save you time and money in the long run. During your inspection, a Peck professional technician will:
Replace your air filter. It’s not a pretty job, but it needs to be done. Say buh-bye to all that dirt, pollen, and who knows what else that has been collecting there all Summer long.
Check for abnormal odors or sounds. We will listen to and inspect your system inside and the outside for unusual smells or sounds. Rattling or abnormal odors may be signs of a leakage.
Inspect your fan blades for corrosion or excessive wear. If needed, we’ll apply a simple lubricant for proper maintenance.
Inspect drains, nozzles, and tubing. Check for leaks, drips, and condensation to discourage mildew from forming.
Also, don’t forget to clean up around your outside or inside unit. Trim foliage and clear away dirt, debris, leaves, or other obstructions to create a “defensible space” to avoid fire and other safety hazards.
