5 Ways to Maintain Your Heating and Cooling System in Adelaide

Extreme weather conditions put maximum load on your heating and cooling system, but it is the time when you need them the most. Hence, it is very much important to maintain the systems well. Here are five tips to keep the heating and cooling systems in pink of their health.

Cleanliness is the best virtue

Whether it is a heating or cooling system, it runs without trouble if you keep it clean. The furnace or heat pump or compressor get affected by the dust and dirt. Both the indoor and outdoor unit needs to be kept perfectly clean. If you decide to do it yourself, then make sure you know well. Cut the power connection before you start.

Buy a fin cleaner to clean the outdoor unit, or you can use a hose as well to spray out the dirt inside out. When the debris gets out from the system, the system works with full efficiency. If you are not that enthusiastic to clean it in-house, then better hire a professional.

Clean the filter

Filter builds up dirt over a period. Before the extreme weather approaches, it is always better to clean it for better efficiency. However, you must replace it after a few years. Instead of conventional reusable filters, install pleated air filters. Dirty filters restrict the airflow and affect cooling or heating adversely. Replacing them timely increases heating and cooling system.

Check the wiring

Disconnect the heating or cooling system from the main power supply before you check the wiring. You need to remove the access panel to check it. Make sure that all wires are neatly connected, and there is no melted or burnt insulation. Fix the connections tightly.

The contractor switch is another component that needs your attention. Replace it if required. Don’t attempt to do any electrical maintenance unless you are not confident about it. Call a qualified maintenance engineer who can do it correctly.

Don’t forget to clean the fan

In the outdoor unit, you find a fan mounted on the top. Check it thoroughly, especially the blades. Clean the fan and put the unit back in the place. In some models, you need to oil the fan.


It is the component that maintains a specific temperature in the house. If it doesn’t work well, then you don’t get proper heating or cooling. Replace the thermostat if you feel it doesn’t function well after maintenance. These five tips keep your heating or cooling system fit and fine.
