HVAC Summer Checklist
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.

See What Our Customers Are Saying:
They were very friendly and took care of everything. The install looks great (and works great), they were very knowledgeable. Installed our a/c efficiently despite the difficult install location both inside and outside and they made it work.
Phenomenal service, so glad I found these guys a few years back after being "hosed" badly by 3 other companies. I've recommended them to so many, and they all are so thankful.
This company is fantastic. Dave came out and gave me a very honest and reasonable quote, unlike a quote received from another company. I had a bunch of questions that were easily answered and when I had questions regarding heating/cooling a previously unheated room above the Garage, Dave arranged for Greg to come out for an assessment of this new space and gave me his recommendation along with his professional thoughts on all of my options.
These guys have been nothing but Professional, honest and helpful along the way. I can't recall the two other guys doing the install, but they were great as well. Good workmanship, everything was cleaned up and everything functions as promised. I could go on and on about my experience, but it's all positive so what more could you want?
Give them a call, see for yourself. If I had to buy another furnace/AC or heat pump, they'd be my first call.
I hired twin tech to convert my townhouse heating from electric to gas and install a furnace and a/c unit. I had talked with many other vendors, and received several quotes, but chose them, and very happy I did. Here are some of the reasons why:
1. They were realistic about the timeline for the work, when they could start and how long it would take. (They said upfront, it was their busy season and would need to get back to me in 3 weeks, which they did):
2. They had a quote with options for me. They were clear about the entertainment of what they would and would not do (they’d build duct work, id need another contractor to box in ductwork). This allowed me to plan as I was my own general contractor for my renovations).
3. They spoke to me in a language I understood, neither too technical nor too simple. They answered all my questions as I had them. Everyone is so lovely to work with, the sales team and the contractors who are worked in my home.
4. It’s been 4 m since the work was complete. They still answer my emails and my furnace is working very well!
I unabashedly recommend! Price, customer care and quality workmanship were all amazing!
On one of the coldest days of winter, our furnace stopped working. Our regular furnace company came and told us we had a CO2 leak and shut us off. Their quote for a new furnace was way too high and they couldn't even install it on the same day. TwinTech was recommended to us by a friend. We called and spoke to Dave who was very nice and knowledgeable. Grant showed up a short time later and a new furnace was installed the same day with no troubles at all. Best of all, we received a higher-end furnace than what was offered by our previous company and at a cheaper price. I would recommend TwinTech with no hesitation at all.
