DIY Maintenance Tips to Keep Your Home Systems Running Smoothly

At Ferran Services, we are passionate about providing the highest quality support for all your home system needs. However, we also understand the importance of homeowners taking steps to maintain their systems and potentially avoid unnecessary downtime or the need for repair.

Let’s delve into some simple, yet effective DIY tips that can help keep your home’s major systems functioning flawlessly.

Air Conditioning Maintenance

Regular AC maintenance is critical for the system’s optimal operation and a long lifespan. Filters should be cleaned or replaced every 1-2 months during the warmer seasons. This simple step can significantly increase the efficiency of your system and improve the indoor air quality. Be sure to also regularly inspect your AC’s cooling coils, which can become dirty over time. A regular clean can keep your system running smoothly.

While we highly recommend you call in our professionals for detailed servicing, these simple steps can supplement our work and keep your AC working at its best.

Plumbing Care

Regularly check pipes and fittings for any visible leaks. A small drip can waste gallons of water and can quickly add up on your monthly bill. Also, be conscious of what goes down your drains. Avoid disposing of fats and oils into your sink, as they can solidify and cause blockages. Regularly using a drain cleaner can also be beneficial in keeping your pipes clear.

Furnace Upkeep

Ensure you replace your furnace filter every 3 months to minimize dust and increase system efficiency. Consider using a programmable thermostat. This gives you the ability to control the temperature of your home more efficiently, potentially saving you money on your utility bill.

Remember, even with the best DIY care, sometimes things go awry or systems require more serious attention. At Ferran Services, we pride ourselves on offering responsive, high quality service to keep your home running smoothly. With years of experience and a team of certified professionals, we offer quality repair and maintenance services that you can rely on.
