With the hot, humid temperatures of a New Jersey summer, you probably expect your air conditioning to always be performing at full capacity. Unfortunately, neglected systems can malfunction when you least expect it. When your HVAC breaks down, not only is this inconvenient and uncomfortably hot and sticky, but service calls and replacement parts can add up fast. Fortunately, with a little TLC like pre-season AC maintenance from your trusted HVAC Company in Princeton, you can prevent major breakdowns.
Time to Schedule Preventative Maintenance
Regular HVAC preventative maintenance is the best way to ensure trouble-free operation and peak performance. Not sure when to schedule preventative maintenance to make sure your home or business cooling unit will be functioning properly over the summer? Well, chances are that your system was not used during the winter months, making springtime (now) an ideal time to call Princeton Fuel Oil to make an appointment. Our trained professionals will inspect your indoor and outdoor units at your home or business to look for damage and clean functioning parts which potentially have built up reside over the long, cold, winter months.
The overall goals of preventative maintenance are to prevent equipment failure in the future and increase the life expectancy of your HVAC unit, but the benefits go beyond just that. In our recent blog, The 5 Key Benefits of Preventative Maintenance of Your Home’s Heating and Cooling Equipment, we covered how you can ensure that your equipment is running at optimal efficiency, minimizing unexpected repair costs and reducing safety risks.
Homeowner HVAC Maintenance
Energy Star suggests homeowners can keep your cooling system at peak performance with a few simple check-ups you can do yourself.
- Inspect, clean, or change air filters once a month in your central air conditioner, furnace, and/or heat pump.
- Check thermostat settings to ensure the cooling and heating system keeps you comfortable when you are home and saves energy while you are away.
- Clean debris and adjust blower components to provide proper system airflow for greater comfort levels. Airflow problems can reduce your system’s efficiency by up to 15 percent.
