Summer Checklist for Your HVAC System

goals-checklist

Summer is quickly approaching here in New Jersey, and you’re going to want to escape the heat at home with high-quality air conditioning. Ensure your family’s indoor comfort this season with some simple to-do’s for your HVAC system. A.J. Perri Plumbing, Heating and Cooling can help you prevent frustrating breakdowns or loss of cooling power with these easy steps.

Replace Your Filter

Did you know that Americans spend 70% of their lives indoors? And with our current health crisis, that number could grow even higher. Make sure that the indoor air quality of your home is safe for your family by replacing or cleaning the HVAC filter every month.

A.J. Perri also carries a wide variety of air cleaners, UV germicidal lamps and humidifiers to ensure that your home’s air quality is the best it can be. Ask one of our expert technicians today about the right filtration system for your family.

Clean the Outdoor Unit

As you clean up your yard and work on your landscaping design, take some time to clean up around your outdoor air conditioner unit too. Grass, leaves, and debris from the winter can cause harm to the machine, so make sure that the unit itself and the area around it is clear when you turn it on for the summer.

Update Your Thermostat

When you switch from heating to cooling, also check the schedule on your thermostat. This is a great time to make necessary updates for wake up times, family members who work from home, etc.

Better yet, why not look into a Nest Learning Thermostat for your home this summer? This smart device will program itself based on your family’s daily routine and automatically adapts for each season. You’ll see the Nest Thermostat pay for itself in no time through energy savings and ease of use.

Schedule Regular Maintenance

Routine maintenance of your HVAC system can help prevent emergency repairs and increase the efficiency of your equipment. The system and ductwork collects dust and debris throughout the year, and that can have a major impact on both your unit and your energy bill.

If you haven’t had an A/C tune-up yet this season, it’s not too late. Our 21-step precision tune-up will ensure your system is running smoothly so you’re not stuck sweating at home during the next heat wave.
