Furnace & Air Conditioning Maintenance Tips

Your heating and cooling equipment should operate dependably for many years to come; however, there are a few maintenance operations you can do yourself to help ensure the best performance from your furnace and air conditioner.

Notice: Before you perform any kind of maintenance, disconnect all electrical power to the unit. Do not remove access panels until doing so, and be careful for sharp edges when handling parts or reaching into units. Also, be sure to comply with all manufacturer’s instructions, otherwise failure to do so may result in fire or combustion that may cause property damage, serious injury or death, and possibly void all manufacturer’s warranties and guarantees.

Check Filter – Checking the air filter in your furnace or fan coil each month and making sure the filter is not dirty will ensure that your furnace, air conditioner, or heat pump is not working excessively. Replace your filter when necessary, or clean it if possible. (Make sure filter is dry before re-installing it.)

Remove Debris – Make sure to keep your outdoor unit free of debris, grass clippings, leaves, shrubbery, etc. Also, be sure to check the base pan under your unit for debris. Doing so will allow the unit to drain properly.

Brush Exterior – It is ideal to use a brush or a vacuum cleaner with a soft brush attachment to clean the surface of your outdoor coil.

Check Level – Be sure your outdoor coil stays in a level position. In the case that the support for the coil shifts or settles and the unit is no longer level, re-level it to make sure moisture drains properly from under the unit.

Inspect Ventilation – Before each heating season it is a good idea to inspect your furnace’s combustion area and vent system. If you happen to find dirt, soot, or rust, your system may not properly operate or perform at its peak efficiency. Please call a Mich-Tech One technician and do not run your furnace until it is professionally inspected or repaired.

Clean Humidifier – Before every heating season clean your humidifier. It is best to review your owner’s manual for the proper procedure to clean the evaporator pad and external components.
