Tips on Keeping your HVAC System Working During the Winter Months
C & G Mechanical know that your HVAC system is often responsible for your comfort levels.
As the colder months are upon us, you are most likely keeping your HVAC system on the warm air setting. In order to ensure this will work throughout the winter and you won’t be left in the cold, we’ve put together some troubleshooting that you may need to carry out.
Although the HVAC units found in houses and apartments are often simple and compact, units used in larger buildings are considerably more complex. In order to make sure the units in the larger buildings don’t break down, regular maintenance should be carried out. The smaller HVAC systems often need simple maintenance tasks which are outlined in the user manuals. Larger systems require a skilled mechanic to service them.
As a general rule, it’s best for those who live in flats/apartments to inspect their HVAC unit every couple of months to make sure everything is running smoothly. The user manual will include simple preventive maintenance and will inform you of what tools and techniques are needed to take off the cover and differentiate the different parts. It will also cover how to cut off the power supply, remove the metal guards and how to clean away any dust affecting the unit.
In addition, a considerable amount of home HVAC units contain replaceable air filters that should be changed according to the owner’s manual specifications.
