Calibrate the Thermostat
Your HVAC system’s thermostat is its control center. It directs when to turn the system on and off and how much conditioned air it should blow into your living spaces. Calibrating the thermostat ensures that it runs as it should according to the program you’ve set. Doing so will maximize your home comfort and prolong the thermostat’s service life.
Check the Filter and Vents
The service technicians at Viking Air like to see a clean air filter when they check yours. Your air filter shouldn’t have any obstructions. The arrows on the side of the air filter should point in the direction of the airflow, which is usually up toward the ceiling or sideways toward the wall. If your filter sits at the bottom of your air handler’s cabinet, its arrows should point into it. Checking the airflow coming out of the supply vents is also vital. We make sure all vents are open and pointing toward your home’s major heat load areas.
