Regular Maintenance and Cleaning

As the seasons change, differently allergens and debris are blown around, posing dangers for our HVAC systems and our bodies. It’s important to keep a close eye on your HVAC system during these changes, as additional debris getting stuck in the outdoor unit or extra dirt and dust build up indoors can affect the quality of air throughout your home.

 

Filter Changes

Typically every three months (or 90 days), it’s time for an air filter change. Try not to get the cheapest brand, either, quality is important here. These filter changes make great opportunities to double check the area for anything out of the ordinary- additional debris or grime would be out of the ordinary.

 

Hard to Reach Places

Those hard-to-reach places are the areas that accumulate enough dirt, dust, and other grime to spread throughout the entire house (for obvious reasons)! It’s important to focus on these areas, though, because otherwise, you’ll find yourself trying to reach through the air ducts to clean out more grime. If you’re having trouble, don’t hesitate to give the professionals a call.
