Summer Tips for Maintaining Your Michigan Heating and Air Conditioning System

It’s important to have maintenance done on your Michigan heating and air conditioning system twice a year. Most people clean their system during the spring and before winter. Cleaning your system during the spring is the best time to have your HVAC contractor conduct a pre-summer inspection of your system. The summer months get hot and humid, so it’s important to have your system inspected to ensure it’s working properly.

Listed below are summer tips for maintaining your Michigan heating and air conditioning system:

  • Check thermostat and furnace system controls. This insures that the starting cycle is working properly so you stay comfortable and save energy.
  • Make sure the electrical connections are tightened and lubricate all HVAC moving parts. Loose electrical connections and lack of adequate lubrication reduces the life of the unit components leading to increased energy use.
  • Make sure the condensate drain is working properly. A plugged drain or pipe can cause water damage, and affect the humidity levels in your home.
  • Clean the evaporator and air conditioning coils. Dirty coils can higher your energy bills leading you to spend more money.
  • Check the air conditioner refrigerant level. The wrong level of refrigerant can affect your system efficiency and increase your costs.
  • Make sure the blower components are properly adjusted. Improper blower components can reduce efficiency up to 15 percent.
  • Change air filters regularly to ensure system efficiency.
