If you’ve ever had your furnace or air conditioner break down, you know how difficult it can be to get a fast, effective repair solution. Unfortunately, the biggest reason HVAC systems break down is because they haven’t been properly maintained.

So how often should you have your HVAC system serviced? See below for how Crawford Services can help keep your HVAC system running smoothly.

Biannual Maintenance

The short answer to the question is twice a year. It’s essential that you have a professional out to your home for preseason checkups for both your air conditioner and furnace. Your licensed technicians from Crawford Services will inspect all of your system’s components, ensuring that everything is in proper working order, is clean, and doesn’t need repair or replacement.

By having regular maintenance performed, you will extend the life of your HVAC system, reduce the need for expensive repairs, and keep your system running more efficiently.

DIY Maintenance

While your annual maintenance checks are crucial, that doesn’t mean you can’t do more to keep your HVAC systems working better. One of the most common DIY solutions is replacing filters on both your furnace and AC. Most filters can be purchased from a hardware store and can be replaced with minimal effort. Since we don’t see much “open window” weather here in Texas, our HVAC systems see extensive use year-round and need to have their filters changed.

Another simple DIY solution is cleaning your vents. Between cleaning vents and changing filters, you will be able to improve your air quality and reduce dust, allergens, and pollutants in the home. If you’re experiencing any of these, try these solutions. If that still doesn’t fix the problem, call us for duct cleaning services or a full HVAC system tune-up.
