Summer is the perfect time of year to utilize the warm weather and clean every corner of the house, both inside and out. To ensure that your home HVAC system is in excellent working condition, check off this list of summer maintenance tasks that should be performed on your HVAC system annually.
Clean Up the Area Around the HVAC Unit
The most obvious place to start is the HVAC unit itself. The housing unit, which is located outside, can sometimes get dirty and become covered with debris. Every year, homeowners should take a look at their HVAC unit and at its immediate surroundings. The unit should remain clean and free from any surrounding objects, such as plants, garbage, animals, and more. Surrounding objects should maintain a clear radius of approximately two feet around the unit. This will ensure nothing will interfere with the HVAC unit, and also make it easier on service technicians during repairs and maintenance checks. In terms of the interior components, homeowners should regularly check vents, registers, and other HVAC components to ensure dirt and surrounding objects do not interfere with it.
Replace Air Filters
Now is the perfect opportunity to replace your air filters within the HVAC system. If homeowners do not commit to replacing their air filters regularly, they may become at risk of damaging their home’s HVAC system. Dirty air filters do a poor job of cleansing the air of any contaminants. So, instead of breathing in fresh clean air, home residents are forced to breathe in unfiltered air, which can lead to health conditions like allergies. Dirty filters may also cause your HVAC system to overwork itself, as it must work harder to push air throughout the house. This can lead to the wear and tear of your HVAC system, as well as expensive energy bills.
Hire an HVAC Expert
By following the above tips and tricks, homeowners can do a great job of maintaining their HVAC unit. But, it is important to keep in mind that there are still certain components that require professional help. This is where HVAC technicians come in handy. These technicians can thoroughly examine your HVAC system and come up with a full diagnostic report in less than 90 minutes. HVAC professionals can inspect the condition of your HVAC system, and whether certain components need to be repaired or replaced.

When our old oil furnace finally broke down we decided it was time to finally convert to natural gas and finally install central air conditioning at the same time. Knowing it was going to be a significant investment for us, we wanted to make the right choice. Twintech came highly recommended by a friend and we were not disappointed. From the first contact with the salesperson, until the final touches on the installation, we were so pleased with their service. Everyone from the company was so friendly, efficient and a pleasure to deal with. Best of all, the cost was very competitive. We would certainly recommend Twintech to anyone requiring HVAC work in their home.
Mitch from Twintech came out for our annual furnace inspection. We found him to be friendly, conscientious & he left the work area clean. We were also very impressed with the thoroughness of the job he did. This is the 2nd job weve had Twintech do for us & have been very happy with the results for each. We highly recommend this company. Thank you, Mitch, Dave & Greg.
Work was done on schedule, professionally, according to quote and with minimal inconvenience to building users. Very happy with the end result. The only area for improvement from my experience - need more timely quoting process.
The team was great! Very knowledgeable, professional and extremely helpful. A few days after install the unit didnt seem to be working, user error, but within minutes of contacting them..on a Saturday.. a tech was on the phone troubleshooting with us. I highly recommend Twintech for your cooling or heating needs. They stand by their products and a pleasure to deal with.
During the hottest week in the summer our old A/C decided to call it quits. I called Twintech Heating & Cooling after receiving a referral from a family member; came highly rated for being an honest, family-run business, who appreciates their customers. Dave was able to accommodate my hectic schedule and book a late evening appointment to walk through the specifics. Greg and Mitch arrived exactly on time a few days later, were very polite and friendly, and within a couple of hours had a new unit up and running. I also received a follow-up call to ensure we were happy with the Amana.
They were on time and very professional. I'm so glad I decided to go with Twintech, thanks!
Timely and appreciated - this was during the hottest days this year when our Air and Furnace way.
Efficient. Professional. No BS or overselling. What was promised, was delivered at a cost-effective price point.
Down to earth.
Professionally done and took care to cover all entry floors to the house for the installers to remove the old furnace and install a new furnace.
I also made recommendations of the tankless water heater that we had installed and items to address. We did not know they also installed tankless water heaters.
Price was not the cheapest nor the most expensive of my quotes. It's the quality of the installation that makes for a good AC system. The twins' knowledge & professionalism was evident in the small details:
Very clean work. Greg made sure that the refrigerant level & temperature were correct. They reinstall the insulation & vapor barrier around the wall. The outside electrical cords were secured to the wall. Proud to support this local company. Thank you.
Great team of guys came to do the work. Very professional. Arrived on time worked very efficiently and were very clean. They answered any questions we had without hesitation. The air conditioner works great and is so quiet. I highly recommend them and they don't try to up-sell anything right from the start.
