HVAC maintenance is important not only for the efficiency of your unit but also for the comfort of your home. And common air conditioning maintenance tasks, such as inspecting the thermostat and routinely changing the air filter, can directly affect the comfort of your Charles Town, West Virginia, home. Here’s how doing them can enhance your home’s comfort.

Evaluate the Thermostat

Adjusting the thermostat is the first step to take when finding the ideal temperature of your home. If the thermostat is not working properly or is in the wrong location, it can be difficult to effectively heat or cool your home. Evaluating the location, the electrical and Wi-Fi connection, and functionality of the thermostat are just a few of the many tasks that your technician will complete during the HVAC service call.

Lubricate Important Mechanical Parts

Your HVAC unit is made up of many different mechanical parts. Over time, these parts can become worn and not work as efficiently, thus affecting the unit’s ability to heat or cool your home. Routine lubrication can keep the parts in good working condition while also preventing costly breakdowns from occurring.

Change the Air Filter

It is necessary to frequently change your unit’s air filter, both for air quality and to help the HVAC unit work properly. When dust and debris build up in the unit, it has to work harder to achieve your set temperature. Your service technician will replace the air filter during your appointment. However, it is important that you also replace the air filter in between appointments.

Inspect the Outdoor Unit

Your outdoor unit is responsible for cooling your home. Because you do not usually need your air conditioning unit during the winter months, the unit often requires maintenance come spring. Also, inclement weather can cause debris to pile up around the unit. Your maintenance technician will inspect the area surrounding the unit while also removing any dangers.

The tasks that our HVAC maintenance technician completes help to prolong the life of your unit, while also increasing the comfort of your home. Call us today at Griffith Energy Services at 888-474-3391 to learn more about how HVAC maintenance can increase your comfort levels this summer.
