Maintain Your HVAC Unit for Peak Performance All Year Long

Charleston is hot and humid and even our winter months have warm days. We rely on our HVAC units to keep us cool in the summer months and warm on those chilly days. All year round, it’s important to keep your unit maintained so that it’s ready for the sweltering heat or the unexpected cold snap. Check out three reasons regular HVAC maintenance is important.

  1. Fixing Issues Before They Arise: No one likes an HVAC emergency. Regular maintenance and inspections ensure that problems are fixed before they cause a headache.
  2. Staying Efficient: Having a technician check your unit for clogs and leaks will enable the unit to run as efficiently as possible.
  3. Saving Money in the Long Run: Fixing problems before they become complicated ensures that you’re simply repairing your unit instead of having to purchase a new one. Proper maintenance guarantees the longevity of your air conditioning system.

Air Filter Maintenance 

We’re all guilty of forgetting to changes the filters in our home, but neglecting to do so for an extended period of time can lead to increased allergens and a decrease in your HVAC unit’s performance. The HVAC expert technicians here at LimRic Plumbing, Heating & Air recommend that you follow a set schedule to swap out your air filters. The frequency with which you change your filters depends on several factors, including the type of filter you use, how many pets are in your home, and how many people live in your home.

As a general rule, standard air filters should be changed every 30 to 60 days. Check out the chart below to find the specific time to change your filters, and don’t forget to set a reminder in your phone so that you don’t forget!

Scenario Optimal Time Span
Standard Rule Every 30 to 60 Days
If You’re Allergy Prone Every 20 to 40 Days
If You Have One Pet Every 60 Days
If You Have More Than One Pet Every 30 Days
If You Have No Pets and No Allergies Every 90 to 120 Days
