How Often Should You Get HVAC Maintenance?

February 8, 2021

An uncomfortable home can be a big distraction. That’s why it’s important to take basic steps to protect the systems that help keep your Joliet home comfortable. One of your most vital home comfort systems is your HVAC system. The good news is that keeping your HVAC system running properly is fairly easy as long as you have your system regularly maintained by DuPree Heating & Air Conditioning. To help find success with HVAC maintenance, here is a good maintenance schedule to follow.

Do What You Can

One important part of HVAC maintenance is what you do on your own. The main thing that you can do to keep your HVAC system healthy is to regularly change the air filter. At a minimum, you’ll want to replace the filter every three months. However, dusty conditions in your home may require more frequent replacement.

Every Six Months

When it comes to the professional maintenance offered by DuPree Heating & Air Conditioning, a good rule of thumb is to schedule this maintenance every six months. This ensures that both your furnace and air conditioner are properly maintained before the heating and cooling seasons begin. Typically, it’s best to schedule maintenance during the fall and spring so that you’ll have some extra time if any major problems are discovered.

Don’t Wait to Call

Even when you’re not actively maintaining your HVAC system, it’s important to keep an eye on it. If anything seems amiss, it’s a good idea to call DuPree Heating & Air Conditioning as soon as you can. Typically, the sooner you can repair a problem with your HVAC system, the easier the problem will be to repair. Plus, if you act quickly, you greatly reduce the risk that your HVAC system will stop working, leading to reduced home comfort.
