Your home HVAC system is extremely important as it can help to heat and cool your home. At the same time, it can have an impact on your indoor air quality, which makes cleaning it regularly very important. Below are three tips for keeping your HVAC system clean.
Change Air Filter Regularly
It’s important to change your air filter on a regular basis. Depending on your situation and the type of air filter that you use, you may need to replace it as frequently as every three months. By having a fresh filter in place at all times, you can help to keep dust and debris out of your HVAC system and ductwork.
Clear the Area Around the HVAC Unit
To keep your home HVAC system clean, you also need to make sure that the surrounding area is clean. For inside units, this means cleaning the floor around the unit and vacuuming up and dust. For outside units, this includes quickly cleaning up leaves and dirt that can accumulate by the unit. Doing this will keep large pieces of debris from getting caught in your filter or HVAC system.
Clean Accessible Parts
You can also keep your system clear by cleaning accessible parts. Some parts of the HVAC system that can be cleaned by hand include the HVAC blower blades, the furnace vents, and a variety of other parts that can accumulate dust. Regularly cleaning these parts can greatly impact the long-term condition of your HVAC system.
