The home heating systems that we rely on for heating our New England homes are extremely dependable, but like all mechanical equipment, they need attention from time to time. A certified professional should inspect your HVAC system at least once a year.

Unresolved HVAC problems can have a domino effect making it important to find the root of the issues in your  heating and cooling system quickly. If you allow maintenance problems go unresolved, you could be setting yourself up for a costly repair.

If you want to avoid high heating and cooling system repair costs, you need to regularly maintain and check up on your HVAC system. This includes monthly, inspections done by you aand yearly maintenance services by a professional. This prevents problems from building up and causing unnecessary damage to your equipment and the rest of your home.

Now that winter is about to be left behind, here are three tips to get your home ready to spring forward:



Excess moisture can collect into a drain pan and run through a condensate line that runs through the exterior of your home. Condensate lines can become clogged or blocked which can cause your equipment to freeze or lead to water damage.



The air filters of your heating and cooling system handle all of the air in your home. That’s a lot of dirt, dust, pollen, chemicals, and pet dander to hold onto! Replacing your filters every 30-60 days is one of the most important HVAC maintenance tasks throughout the year.

Clean air filters put a reduced strain on your heating and cooling system, making it more efficient.



It is not uncommon for fall and winter debris to get into your outdoor unit. Before spring arrives, it’s a good idea to clear any leaves, twigs, excess mud or dirt, and trim any overgrown vegetation. The goal is to keep 3 feet or more of clear area around an outside compressor unit – thus allowing proper airflow.
