In this HVAC maintenance checklist, we’ll go over some things you can do yourself to keep your system safe. While some issues may need professional assistance, there are some easy things you can do to improve the quality and lifespan of your HVAC system.
Check Your Indoor Air Quality
Poor ventilation can cause pollutant levels in your home to rise. Ensure your HVAC unit is running properly with a quick indoor air quality check. Not only is the quality of your air important for your health, it’s essential for creating a healthy indoor air environment.

Keep Your System Clean of Debris
If you have an outdoor HVAC unit, it’s a good idea to check it often and clean it of any debris; such as dirt, sticks, leaves, and pollen. Clear this debris from the top and sides of the unit using gloves and a hose if necessary. This is especially important in the fall when leaves and debris are falling from overhead trees.
Keeping your system clear of debris allows for maximum airflow to the fan which increases your unit’s efficiency and lifespan. Ensure that nothing is blocking the system by making sure there are at least two feet around the unit for maximum airflow.
Keep an Ear Out for Unusual Sounds
To address issues before they get too bad, make sure you keep an ear out for any strange noises your HVAC system begins making during this season. If you hear any noises, try to identify the source.
Oftentimes, these sounds could be signaling that there are blockages of debris in the vents, loose bolts, or blockages in the register or furnace. If you cannot find the source, or figure out how to fix a sound on your own, call your HVAC professionals to check on the unit.
