When it comes to New Year’s resolutions, our HVAC professionals at Econo Air in Brea suggest that our customers resolve to check their HVAC systems twice a year, once at the start of the heating season and again at the start of the cooling season. This greatly cuts down on the risk of the system breaking down when it is needed the most. After all, Brea can get hot in the summer, and a cold snap during the winter isn’t unheard of. We want our customers’ systems to be ready for any weather event.
Checklist for Air Conditioning
Our professionals at Econo Air believe the best time to check your air conditioning system is in the spring, one to two months ahead of the time when the A/C will be needed. For central air conditioners we:
Remove debris from around the outdoor condenser
Clean the inside of the condenser unit
Clean the cooling coils
Adjust the thermostat
Wipe down the system with a microfiber cloth
For a room unit, we will clean the filter, or replace it, and for ductless mini-splits, we will clean the filters, drain pipes, and coils.
Checklist for the Heating System
Even if our customers aren’t expecting things to get really cold in the winter, it is simply a good idea to check the heating system, preferably in the fall. The maintenance for heating systems is a little different depending on what type of system it is. For furnaces we:
Check the flue and remove any obstructions
Check the heat exchanger
Check the thermostat
Check the combustion chamber
Check belts and motors
For boilers we will:
Drain and refill the boiler
Check the pressure valve
Check the expansion tank
Clean the heat exchanger
Our professionals will adjust the thermostat for you in both boilers and furnaces.
