NORFOLK, VA, June 11, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Miller's Heating and Air Conditioning would like to remind homeowners that June is the perfect month to take inventory when it comes to their homes' safety and health. To honor National Healthy Homes Month, the HVAC company is sharing seven easy, at-home checks to improve family life not just in June—but all year long.
Along with regular summer AC maintenance, Miller's recommends the following:
1. Check alarms.
Do a quick check to ensure all smoke and carbon monoxide detectors are functioning properly. Replace batteries if signals are weak.
2. Investigate electrical panels.
Both new and seasoned homeowners should check their electrical panels. Be certain breakers are healthy and functioning safely and that the entire panel is up to code. Problems? Contact Miller's for an electrical service appointment.
3. Be safe with AC window units.
These units should be secured tightly in windows and have their own dedicated outlet with no extension cords. It's also important to keep window units far from any water sources.
4. Change air filters.
Homeowners should double check air filters even if they've been replaced in the spring. Since air conditioners run so often in the summer, they work extra hard—which means filters work harder, too.
5. Follow safety manuals.
When HVAC system questions arise, don't just wing it. Check the owner's manual for proper procedures. Those who still experience problems should contact Miller's for professional help.
6. Clear vents.
Be sure all supply and return vents are free from blockages and furniture is not impeding airflow.
7. Turn off power sources.
This might be a no-brainer, but it's always a good reminder: Disconnect power any time electrical work is being done inside the home.
