Keep Your Cool This Summer with J.D.R. Heating and Cooling’s Essential HVAC Checklist

Summer promises warm weather, sunny skies, and the inevitable switch from heating to cooling systems in your home. As you prepare for the hotter months ahead, ensuring your HVAC system is in peak condition is crucial for maintaining comfort and efficiency. Here’s a summer HVAC checklist from the experienced team at J.D.R. Heating and Cooling to keep your system running smoothly:

1. Change or Clean Air Filters: One of the simplest yet most effective ways to maintain your HVAC system’s efficiency is regularly changing or cleaning the air filters. Clogged or dirty filters restrict airflow, forcing your system to work harder, increasing your energy bills, and reducing your system’s lifespan.

2. Inspect and Clean Air Vents: To ensure optimal airflow, make sure all air vents are open, clean, and unobstructed. Blocked vents can cause uneven cooling, strain your HVAC system, and compromise air quality.

3. Check Thermostat Settings: Ensure your thermostat is functioning correctly and set to a comfortable, energy-efficient temperature. If you haven’t already, consider upgrading to a programmable thermostat, which can help you save on energy costs by adjusting the temperature based on your schedule.

4. Schedule Professional Maintenance: A professional HVAC technician can provide a comprehensive inspection and tune-up of your system. This includes checking refrigerant levels, inspecting electrical connections, and cleaning the condenser coils to ensure your system operates efficiently.

5. Clear Debris Around Outdoor Unit: Keep the area around your HVAC’s outdoor unit clear of leaves, twigs, and other debris. This prevents airflow blockage and allows your system to run more efficiently.

6. Inspect and Seal Ductwork: Leaky ductwork can significantly reduce your system’s efficiency. Inspect your ducts for any signs of wear and tear, and consider having them professionally sealed or repaired.

7. Invest in an Air Purifier: Summer can exacerbate allergies and asthma due to higher levels of pollutants and allergens in the air. Consider adding an air purifier to your HVAC system to improve indoor air quality, a service provided by J.D.R. Heating and Cooling.

Remember, your HVAC system is crucial in keeping your home comfortable during the scorching summer months. Taking proactive steps to maintain and prepare your system can lower utility bills, prolong its life, and improve indoor air quality.
