Handy HVAC Tips

Keeping your HVAC system properly maintained will help it last longer and help you save considerable money on repairs and power/gas bills.

Outside Your Home

  • Make sure the condenser has at least one foot of space around it to allow for proper air flow.
  • Never place your air conditioning unit under a deck or dryer vent.
  • If the condenser looks dirty, you can spray it with your hose to remove any debris that has accumulated.
  • Remove the coil cover and spray at a 45 degree angle from top to bottom, flushing the debris away.

Inside Your Home

  • The "Fan Only" feature on your thermostat will circulate air while keeping energy costs low.
  • During the summer, don't set your thermostat below 72 degrees or your A/C system may freeze.
  • 90% of service calls are due to a dirty filter. Most filters should be changed once a month.
  • You can get professional-grade filters direct from the Comfort Systems Do-It-Yourself Parts Shop.

Use a Professional

  • Beware of companies that offer "too-good-to-be-true" deals.
  • Protect your home and your family: make sure your HVAC contractor pulls a permit.
  • Permits ensure the work is done correctly, and that an inspector will come and check the job to guarantee it's done to code.
  • Only utilize companies that are bonded and employ NATE certified technicians, like Comfort Systems.
