    HVAC Maintenance Tips for New Construction Homeowners

    As a new construction homeowner, it’s important to get familiar with the machines that run your home, including the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) unit.

    The following are a few tips to keep your air clean and your AC unit working in top shape.

    The air filter makes sure clean air is pumped into your home and keeps proper airflow moving through your unit. Dirty air filters can make your unit work harder and be less energy efficient.

    Check your manual or ask your service provider about the recommended frequency for changing your air filter. As a general rule, air filters should be changed every 1-3 months. Depending on your location and use, it may need to be replaced more frequently. If you have allergies or furry pets, it’s suggested to change your filter once a month.

    Check out our filter store for affordable filter replacement options.

    1. Turn HVAC system off.
    2. Locate cleaning port/float switch (DO NOT ATTEMPT if the system is already experiencing a blockage).
    3. Remove cleaning port cap.
    4. Slowly pour cleaning solution (1 cup of bleach or white vinegar) down PVC drain line.
    5. Follow by slowly pouring 1 gallon of hot water down the PVC drain line. Repeat three times.
    6. Replace cleaning port cap of float switch.
    7. Turn system back on.

    Please be aware that because of a change in materials used in Air Handler Units, some manufacturers no longer recommend vinegar or bleach due to strong vapors that could cause premature oxidation and degradation of the materials.

    Debris in or near your AC unit can clog the filter and wreak havoc on your machine. Keep leaves, dirt, and yard debris away from your unit. Trim plants or bushes and keep them safe distance away so your unit has room to take in clean air. During the off-season, take extra precaution by covering the unit to keep it clean and in good working condition. By keeping your HVAC unit in top shape with clean air filters and regular maintenance, your air conditioner will last much longer.

    Pay close attention to warning signs that could be alerting you of an issue. By taking care of small issues early on, you can save yourself hundreds of dollars on replacement costs.
