Checking and Changing the Filters & Ductwork on the HVAC Units in Your Toano Rental Property

Toano Homeowner Replacing Air Filter on Their Air ConditionerNobody ever wants to risk breaking their heating and air conditioning units. These are the systems that help keep a home cozy and comfortable throughout the year. Their ability to warm us up in cold weather and keep us cool when things start to heat up is useful for anybody. However, despite how much we and the residents in our Toano rental homes depend on them, they are often neglected and are only looked after when it starts showing signs of wear and tear.

Because an HVAC system is usually located where it is not seen on daily basis, the tendency of it being neglected is common for most homeowners and renters alike. Things like dust and debris build up can sometimes catch us off-guard and more often than not, in unlikely situations. They could break down when the weather is too hot, or stop heating when it is also too cold. This buildup can cause a number of little problems from bad smell to the spreading of pollutants. These pollutants can potentially cause

respiratory issues or make allergies or conditions like asthma worse. Clogged or dirty filters can also put stress on the units, causing it them work harder than necessary to heat or cool the home. Motors that are working too hard tend to wear out faster, leading to unnecessary replacement expenses.

Obviously, you do not want to risk breaking your HVAC units in your Toano rental property. Not only is it expensive, but it is also very stressful dealing with angry tenants who for sure do not appreciate it breaking down. To avoid this, you can hire a competent property management company who can guide you or assist you with issues such as dealing with HVAC units. As suggested by industry experts, ductwork should be checked and cleaned every three to five years, while filters should be changed frequently, perhaps several times a year, depending on the location of your rental property and what type of system it has.
