Rehoboth, DE, has some wild weather. One day, you might need the heating system for relief from a cold nor’easter, and just a few days later, there might be record-breaking warm temperatures. It’s important to make sure your home’s heating and cooling system is ready to maintain your indoor comfort. Maintenance is the best way to do that. Here’s what you need to know about the right frequency for scheduling heating and cooling system maintenance.
Springtime Cooling System Tune-up
Your air conditioning system needs a maintenance visit once each year. At SABRS Home Comfort, LLC, we recommend scheduling this visit in the spring, between late March and late April. Our cooling system maintenance visit includes verifying the refrigerant level, cleaning the condensate drain pipe, and checking the blower motor and fan. We’ll also inspect and replace the system’s air filter. If your house has a heat pump instead of a separate air conditioner and furnace, you’ll need to schedule a heat pump service visit in the springtime.
Autumn Heating System Maintenance
Winters in Rehoboth are usually cold and snowy or icy, so you’ll need an efficient heating system to keep your home warm. Your furnace or boiler needs an annual tune-up. The best time for this maintenance is in early- to mid-autumn. If your house has a heat pump, its second tune-up of the year should be scheduled in the fall. Our heating system maintenance includes checking the thermostat, ignition, or starter, heating element or burner, and air handler.
Maintenance to Do on Your Own
Once each month, check your HVAC system’s air filter. If it’s dirty, remove it and put in a new one. Trim vegetation away from the outdoor unit once a month.
