Heating System Maintenance for Your Florida Home
Scheduling regular maintenance on your HVAC unit by a licensed technician is essential for lengthening your unit’s lifespan and keeping it energy efficient. Sometimes dirt and debris can build up in your filter, vents, or coils and force your unit to consume extra energy in order to cool your entire home.
When you schedule a maintenance appointment with us, an American Air and Heat technician will evaluate your system, fix any necessary repairs, and use specialized tools to clean dirt and debris from its interior components. The technician will also make recommendations for preventative maintenance you can provide to the system yourself to maximize its efficiency and lifespan.

Proactive Maintenance Tips
In addition to annual service from licensed HVAC technicians at American Air and Heat, here are some maintenance tips that will help improve efficiency and ensure longevity in your HVAC unit.
Change your filter every 30 days.
This allows air to pass through your system more freely so that your HVAC can operate more efficiently. For anyone with allergies or asthma, this tip will also help improve indoor air quality and alleviate symptoms.
Adjust your thermostat to a more energy efficient temperature.
While you are out of the house during the day, turn the air down and save energy. Don’t put your heating system to work while nobody is home to enjoy it.
Clear away outdoor debris.
Don’t let leaves, twigs, or grass pile up on or inside your HVAC unit and keep it from operating properly. Clear away debris periodically and wash pollen off the coils.
