Maintenance Tips for Home Heating & Air Conditioning

Spring and Summer

General guidelines for keeping your home cool and efficient

  • Have an R.S. Boyers Heating and Air representative inspect your home's ducts and cooling equipment
  • Clean or replace you're A/C filters every month
  • Clean out rain gutters and storm drains
  • Clean out and vacuum vents, baseboards, and ducts
  • Seal any air leaks in the attic, basement, crawlspace, and also around windows and doors
  • Check your attic for proper insulation (The U.S. DOE suggests a value between R-22 and R-49). Make sure attic is ventilated well
  • Keep shades or curtains drawn on the sunny side of the house, especially during early and mid-afternoon hours
  • Keep return and supply registers and grilles free from obstruction
  • Keep debris from building up around outdoor unit and clean outdoor coil as necessary. Maintain at least 18”-24” clearance around outdoor unit so it can “breathe” properly

Extra steps you can take to save energy

  • Install a programmable thermostat to preset temperatures for different times of the day
  • Replace single-pane windows with newer double-pane models
  • Replace incandescent light bulbs with compact fluorescents to create a cooler feeling and save lighting costs
  • Install awnings or plant trees outside the home to create shade
  • Turn off appliances, such as computers and televisions, when not in use

Things you can do to improve indoor air quality and reduce potential health risks

  • When adjusting clocks, change batteries in smoke alarms, as well as radon and carbon monoxide detectors
  • Consider a ventilation system (ERV) to increase air circulation inside and add a healthy dose of fresh air
  • Clean any water-damaged carpets and materials, or replace them
  • Reduce the potential for build-up of allergy causing pollutants by keeping your house clean
  • Take special precaution when operating fuel-burning appliances to avoid leakage
  • Store and dispose of household chemicals in a safe manner
  • Consider a high efficiency air cleaner or air purifier to clean the air
