Benjamin Franklin once said, “An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.”

Your choice to learn more about how an HVAC service plan can save some serious “benjamins” this President’s Day is in keeping with our founding father’s philosophy. Spend some time this President’s Day setting up a new HVAC service plan from the Mobile area’s leader in HVAC services, Air Specialty and you’re sure to be planning fun, new ways to spend your savings. Everything you need to know before setting up an HVAC service plan: Some things you can do yourself. For the DIY-crowd, it’s common to ask the question, “Can’t I do some of this myself?” The answer is yes! If you are so inclined to do some of the maintenance on your HVAC unit yourself, you certainly can. Here’s a brief list of things you can do yourself to help keep your HVAC system running great in between the routine visits that are part of your HVAC service plan.
  • A monthly change of the air filter. Be sure to check manufacturer’s recommendation and take note of any indicator lights that might signal a clogged and blocked airflow.
  • Keep your unit clean and clear by removing any debris, trimming nearby foliage as well as hosing down your outdoor unit when needed.
  • Keep supply and return registers clear from curtains, blinds, rugs or furniture.  
Here are a few things that should be left up to the professionals. While there are some preventive maintenance tasks you can do yourself to keep your HVAC unit in tip-top shape; some maintenance should be left up to the experienced HVAC professional. Your HVAC service plan will vary based on your unit, but as a general rule of thumb, it will include a check of the following:
  • Thermostat
  • Electrical connections
  • Moving parts
  • Drainage systems
  • System controls
  • Blower
  • Fuel lines
  • Gas pressure
Your choice in an HVAC service provider matters. When looking for an HVAC service partner, be sure to find one who is focused on quality. Years of experience, knowledge of the top HVAC system manufacturers as well as credentials like Nate-certifications and positive Better Business ratings are all indicators that you’re choosing a professional company that you can rely on.
