Tips when buying an HVAC system
It is necessary to buy a high-efficiency air filter because filters/cleaners keep dirt, debris and air pathogens away from your house.

Never leave your cooling and heating units in contact with leaves, grass and pollen. It can affect its durability
Create a 2 feet space around your outdoor heating and cooling units
Keep an open parallel space of around 2 feet between heating and cooling units to allow proper air intake and ventilation. To duck extreme heat inside the condenser and to ensure proper heat flow, spare 4 -6 feet of ground clearance above the unit.
Monthly and Seasonal tips:
While inspecting your air conditioning system, closely look out for the insulating condition around the copper tuber. Damaged, eroded or missing insulation can cause ice form or condensation, leading to damage to your cooling unit.
It is important to replace your HVAC’s air filters regularly to ensure longevity of your system. When we say longevity, it includes saving thousands of rupees on repair, replacement and maintenance costs.

During winters, using a water humidifier is preferred for maintaining the moisture level in the room. Whereas, in the summer season, the air is moist already, and using a humidifier during summers is unnecessary and be heavy on your pockets. As a result, it will also effect the cooling system of your air conditioner.
Annual HVAC maintenance Tips

- Clear AC condensate drain with a bleach/water mixture
Cleaning AC’s outdoor unit once a year using bleach and water mixture helps in extending its life; prefer doing it during Spring season.
