December Helpful To-Do List

Air Conditioning and Heating Maintenance AC

As we move into December, it’s a good time to focus on the indoor air quality in your home. Here are a few tasks you can do this month to keep your AC/heating system running smoothly:

  1. Check the air flow in your home and adjust the vents as needed. Make sure that the air is flowing freely and reaching all areas of your home. If you notice any rooms that are too hot or too cold, adjust the vents accordingly.
  2. Clean the air vents and registers in your home. Dust and dirt can accumulate on these surfaces over time, which can affect the indoor air quality of your home. Clean them regularly to help improve the air quality.
  3. Check your home’s ductwork for any leaks or damage. Leaky ducts can lead to wasted energy and higher energy bills, as well as poor indoor air quality. Check for any issues and fix them as soon as possible.
  4. Check your AC/heating unit’s refrigerant levels and top them off if needed. The refrigerant is what helps cool the air in your home, so it’s important to make sure that your system has the right amount. If the levels are too low, it can affect the performance of your system.

By taking care of these tasks in December, you can help ensure that your AC/heating system is running efficiently and that the indoor air quality of your home is good. Don’t forget to also check the rest of your home’s maintenance schedule to make sure you’re keeping up with all of the necessary tasks.
