Hi, I’m Anthony Pererra, owner of One Source Home Services – your local Colorado Springs heating and cooling pros. Many people always ask me how to ensure their Colorado Springs HVAC system is running tip top for the winter, so I’ve put together the top 5 things that you can do to ensure your home’s heating and air conditioning systems are healthy, safe and comfortable all year round. Here are the top 5 things that you can do:
- CHANGE YOUR FILTERS. Changing your filters often will help keep dust, debris, and other particulates out of your system, and help your family enjoy fresh clean air all year round.
- CLEAN YOUR OUTDOOR UNIT. Keeping the outdoor coils clear and free of debris will help to make your system run quieter and more efficiently. You can rinse the outdoor unit with a water hose. Also be sure that the area around it, approx. 18”, is free and clear as well, allowing the air to move freely in and out of the system.
- CALIBRATE YOUR THERMOSTAT. Make sure your thermostat is working properly. Change the batteries once per year. Also, check the reading temperature with a thermometer occasionally to ensure its reading properly. Using a digital programmable thermostat will help to save money and time.
- CLEAR YOUR DRAIN. You can help prevent leaks and clogs by frequently checking on your condensation drain. This will help save thousands on potential water damage in your home.
- CLEAN YOUR DUCTS: Having a good, clean air flow system is a great way to ensure the health of your family. Airborne particulates can be harmful to our health and the air we breathe. Start at the registers and follow the duct lines all the way to the air handler or furnace, and also make sure the plenums, and cabinet itself is clean. This is the best way to keep those pesky dust mites and dirt from being re-circulated throughout your home.
I want to ensure your home is the healthiest, most comfortable and safest place you and your family can spend these fall and winter months indoors together. Follow the steps above to help keep your system running tip top and efficiently, or call One Source today.
