Expert DIY Tips from Guardian Heating & Cooling Services

The comfort of our homes heavily relies on the efficiency of our heating and cooling systems. These systems, including boilers and air conditioners, require regular maintenance to function at their best. Guardian Heating & Cooling Service – your service expert – brings you some easy DIY tips for basic maintenance of your home systems. Use these tips to ensure a comfortable, energy-efficient home.

Boiler Maintenance Tips

Our experts at Guardian Heating & Cooling provide quick and reliable boiler repair services. However, prevention is always better than a cure. Regularly check your boiler’s pressure. If it’s too low, the boiler won’t work efficiently. You can usually top up the pressure yourself, but do consult your user manual or our professionals for advice.

Clean your boiler regularly, paying extra attention to vents and flues. They could get blocked by lint and dust. This not only affects efficiency but can also be hazardous. In case of difficult access areas, call us for specialist cleaning services.

Air Conditioner Service

Properly maintained air conditioning units can improve your home’s air quality and reduce energy costs. Begin by cleaning or replacing the air filters regularly. Clogged or dirty filters restrict airflow, causing the AC to work harder and consume more energy. Moreover, they can cause the AC to freeze, necessitating professional AC service.

Aside from the filters, keep the AC coils clean and clear of debris, as dirt buildup can decrease system efficiency. Check the thermostat to ensure it’s working properly. Lastly, keep a close eye on your unit’s drainage channel. A clogged channel doesn’t just affect your air conditioning; it can also cause water damage to your home.

Air Conditioning Annual Check

While regular DIY maintenance is beneficial, it is advisable to have a professional do an annual check. The Guardian Heating & Cooling Service experts ensure that your air conditioning unit is running optimally and efficiently. During an annual check, our experts will clean the components that you can’t reach, check for leaks, measure the refrigerant level, and inspect the motor and belts for wear and tear.

With these simple DIY tips, you’re well-armed to maintain your home’s heating and cooling systems. But remember, when your AC or boiler requires extensive care, don’t hesitate to call in the Guardian Heating & Cooling service experts. We’re just a call away from catering to your home comfort needs.
