When you wake up and the early morning temperatures are just too brutal to bear, you walk over to your home’s thermostat and turn up the heat a few degrees. Or, when the summertime sun is producing sweltering heat and making your home unbearable to live in, you head straight to the same spot to turn down the air a few notches. HVAC units make the living conditions in your home the ideal temperature no matter what time of year it is and that is why it is so important to keep them functioning properly. Just a like a car needs regular maintenance and repairs so does your HVAC unit. We count on these systems to keep our home’s air clean and regulate the temperature, so we are always comfortable in the place that we spend most of our time. The professionals at Franklin HVAC are here to provide with some tips to keep your unit running at maximum efficiency. 

Air Filters

Air filters are one of the most important pieces to ensuring your HVAC unit is running efficiently and providing your home with clean air. Over time, your air filters will become clogged and dirty from all the crud that they have collected to provide your home with clean air. The great thing about this maintenance is that it can be done by you. You won’t need to call a technician out to change the filters for you, and air filters are super simple to change out. If you have any questions about how to properly change your filters or if it is time for you to change your home’s air filters, give us a call at Franklin HVAC. We will be glad to help you out. 

Routine Maintenance

This is easily one of the most overlooked steps that homeowners make when it comes to their HVAC unit. Preventative maintenance is a great way to keep your system running at maximum efficiency while also avoiding any major breakdowns because they were caught before during the maintenance check. Again, we will return to our analogy of your system being like a car. You have to take your car in for regular maintenance to keep it running well and keep it getting your from point A to B. You HVAC unit needs this same type of care. We suggest calling a professional to service your unit twice a year, one right before the summer heat and one right before the bitter winter cold. This way your system will be prepared to cool or heat your home when it is most needed. Regular maintenance will not only have your system in prime shape, but it will provide your home with other benefits like a better lifespan for your system and better air circulation throughout your home. 

Heating and Cooling are vital to maintaining ideal living conditions within your home. If you follow these two major steps to keeping your system running at maximum level, then you and your family will always live in that ideal condition.
