Outdoor Unit Maintenance

  1. Clear away any debris, leaves, or vegetation from around the outdoor unit.
  2. Use a soft-bristle brush or garden hose to gently remove dirt and debris from the unit’s fins.
  3. Ensure that the area around the outdoor unit is unobstructed, allowing for proper airflow.

Thermostat Inspection

  1. Check your thermostat regularly to ensure it is set to the desired temperature.
  2. Replace the batteries annually or as needed to prevent inaccurate temperature readings.
  3. Consider upgrading to a programmable or smart thermostat for improved energy savings and convenience.

Ductwork Inspection
