Do It Yourself Spring HVAC Maintenance

Spring is a great opportunity to clean up your home as you get ready for summer. It’s also an ideal time to maintain your HVAC system. There are some things you can easily do yourself to take care of your heating and cooling this spring:

  1. Replace filters
  2. Visually inspect your system to look for damaged parts
  3. Check for leaks or condensation buildup
  4. Test your thermostat to ensure it is functioning perfectly to reach the desired temperature
  5. Place your hand over vents to check for good airflow

Do It Yourself Fall HVAC Maintenance

Breaking your HVAC preventative maintenance up into two seasons can make it easier to manage without getting overwhelmed. It’s also helpful to check on your system twice throughout the year, as some problems can manifest quickly. Here are some recommended actions for fall HVAC maintenance:

  1. Replace filters
  2. Make sure the system can supply heated air
  3. Ensure the thermostat can initiate heater startup
  4. Check drainage pans to make sure there is no standing water

Need a Broken Air Conditioner or Furnace Repaired?

Howard Air - Happy Family Enjoying Climate Control House
Arizona is well known for its hot summers and mild winters. It can be normal to experience five months of 100-degree temperatures. That means your AC unit will operate around the clock to meet your comfort level. However, do not underestimate the low temperatures during the winter months. It is common for the temperatures to drop into the low 40s. Howard Air highly recommends that you be prepared for those temperature differences with regular heating and AC maintenance. We offer a variety of “custom fit” maintenance programs that accommodate your needs.

Properly Maintain Your HVAC Unit for Best Results

Unserviced air conditioning units frequently break down when the weather is the hottest, requiring expensive repairs and costly emergency calls.

In order for your home to remain at your desired comfort level, regular maintenance must be carried out. By joining our bi-annual maintenance program, Howard Air will come out twice a year to ensure your units are ready for the upcoming season.

4 Reasons You Need to Maintain Your AC & Heater

Howard Air - Improve Lifespan of HVAC

1. Lifespan of Your HVAC

You could add to the lifespan of your unit. When a unit is running at its peak efficiency, the main components do not have to work as hard. This cuts down on the everyday wear and tear of your system. Our technicians will rejuvenate your system so that it performs to your expectations.

Howard Air - Save Money on HVAC

2. Save Money On Heating & Cooling

You could have a direct positive impact on your pocket book. It is a given that your utility bills can be lowered significantly, simply by keeping your systems clean and maintained. (It is also wise to verify that your duct work is designed properly to produce the most effective air flow.) Many times during routine maintenance, a simple, inexpensive repair can be completed which will reduce the number of significant and costly repairs that may occur as a consequence.

Howard Air - HVAC Peace of Mind

3. Peace of Mind

Our NATE certified technicians can determine if your system is low on refrigerant or if a component is failing. In the winter months, it is essential that the ignitor, heating element, and heat exchanger be inspected to ensure the heating unit is working properly. Heating equipment that has not been properly maintained can become a fire and carbon monoxide hazard. In many cases this could result in health risks or even death.

Howard Air - HVAC Warranty

4. Validate Warranty

Many manufactures require a working history of the unit when submitting warranty claims. By building a portfolio of your maintenance, a warranty claim can be processed and approved more successfully.
