Summer is coming, so it’s time for a little TLC for the cooling systems in your Brooklyn home. If you want to stay comfortable when hot weather arrives, the experts at Petri Plumbing recommend taking some easy steps to keep your HVAC system running efficiently.
We recommend our Brooklyn neighbors follow a few simple preventative maintenance tips to make sure their air conditioning system is ready for the summer:
Check the air filters. Change air filters at least once every 60 days. Dirty air filters make HVAC systems work harder, burning more energy and wearing down faster.
Inspect the surroundings. Check the outdoor unit to make sure the air intakes are not clogged by debris, leaves, or brush.
Clean indoor air registers. Don’t let dirt and debris clog air registers. Keep them clean. Avoid blocking them with furniture.
Get an HVAC tune-up. Schedule a visit from the licensed HVAC professionals at Petri Plumbing. We’ll inspect your home AC and make sure it is running efficiently. We’ll inspect the system, check refrigerant levels and hoses, and clean the coils.
Temperatures may be comfortable now, but keep in mind that demand for services from HVAC professionals will rise with the temperature. It is much more convenient to get your HVAC inspected and tuned-up before things get sticky during a typical Brooklyn summer.
Our long-time customers should keep in mind that Petri Plumbing now offers full HVAC installation, maintenance and repair services such as:
If you’re going to schedule an air conditioning tune-up, you can save time by getting your boiler inspected. Our experts can make sure that small problems don’t turn into big problems when you need your boiler most. Our plumbing experts can also advise you about replacing your outdated boiler. Older units only run at 50 to 60 percent efficiency, so upgrading to an energy efficient boiler means you can pay for it within a few years from heating bill savings.
