Poor HVAC efficiency in your Ovilla, Texas, home can cause a number of problems. Higher utility bills, wasted energy, and poor indoor air quality are a few of the issues that can occur. Boost HVAC efficiency by keeping up on routine maintenance and changing the filter regularly.

DIY Tasks

A few simple tasks that you can perform on your own will help keep your heating and cooling system running efficiently. The first thing to keep up on is regular filter changes. The filter keeps air flowing through the HVAC system, stopping dirt, dust and other debris from moving into the ducts. When the filter becomes clogged and dirty, it blocks airflow and reduces efficiency. Most air filters last for a month or two.

If you’re suffering from allergies, opt for a filter with a higher minimum efficiency reporting value (MERV). You can also spray the coils of the outdoor unit with a hose to clear off dirt and debris that accumulate over time.

Routine Maintenance

Routine maintenance on your HVAC system is one of the best ways to keep it operating at peak efficiency. During a maintenance service, our HVAC service technician will inspect all components within the system and look for signs of wear or damage.

The service often includes light cleaning of any dirt and dust within the system. If components need repair or replacement, our service technician can recommend additional service or sometimes take care of it that day. This reduces the risk of having your system stop working on the hottest day of the year.

Duct Cleaning

Dirt and debris in the air ducts can also lower efficiency, so keeping these ducts clean will keep air flowing. A professional air duct cleaning service will also help improve indoor air quality and reduce symptoms among those in your household who suffer from allergies.
