Most homeowners in Las Vegas, Nevada, have gotten used to dealing with the dusty outdoor conditions. Make sure you’re completing these important HVAC cleaning steps to keep your unit in good working condition:
Regularly Change Your Air Filter
Your home’s air filter is the first step in keeping Nevada’s dust outside of your home. Professionals recommend changing your air filter every 90 days. However, if you have pets or any occupants in the home have allergies, change it more frequently. As a result, you’ll ease symptoms.
Keep the Exterior Unit Clean
It can also be useful to keep the area around your external HVAC unit clean. Remove any leaves and other debris from the nearby ground. Turn off the unit and spray it down to remove any dust that has collected on the exterior. As a result, you’ll help prevent inefficient operation.
Schedule a Routine HVAC Inspection
Routine HVAC inspections are an important step in maintaining your unit while also identifying any necessary unit repairs. Keeping up with these important routine HVAC inspections can ensure that Nevada’s dust doesn’t get into the unit and settle, putting you at risk of damage. Your HVAC service technician can also help you with keeping the external unit clean.
Keep Up With Duct Cleanings
Dust that makes its way into the air ducts can lead to poor air quality. It can also cause damage to your unit. Built-up dust can force your HVAC unit to work harder. As a result, it can increase your heating and cooling bills.
Professionals recommend cleaning your air ducts every five to 10 years. If you don’t know the last time that your air ducts were cleaned, it may be useful to schedule an inspection. Make sure you work with a professional when the time comes to have your air ducts cleaned.
